3D technology is more and more present in our day to day lives. Not so long ago it was just a sign of the future — today, it is available at the tips of our fingers. Interior design is not staying behind and is one of many industries in which 3D technology is used on a daily basis.
Interior design is a marriage of concept and inspiration of a designer — art — and client vision and needs. For many years clients were forced to use their imagination to try to visualize the concept presented on a sheet of paper by an interior designer. Back then every little change that needs to be put in was a struggle. Now thanks to 3D technology communication between client and interior designer reach a whole new level and give both parties more ease through all the process. From first ideas, sketches, changes and finishing touches on a 3D project — to beautiful and sophisticated real-life space.
3D technology i interior design, gave us a new range of tools. With them, we can present our vision very precisely, with new quality and in much less time period.
In many cases presented renderings look like a real photo in which we can easily show all the details that are essential, to creating a suitable space. From visualization of the space, walls and ceilings to all in between — the furniture, decoration and the smallest details. 3D technology gives us an opportunity to present different light concepts, contrasts, transitions, and progressions. In other words to present space with depth and soul. Now one click can make all the difference. When a designer in real-time can change color, material, texture, textile, furniture or lighting, and show why one solution is better from the other. Thanks to 3D technology we can show renderings which are more suitable for our clients’ perception skills. That’s why the whole process is much quicker and easier not only for clients but for interior designers as well.
For a client, looking at 3D rendering is like standing in the middle of a real space and looking into the future house or an office without a need to imagine anything — because everything is on the project. What is also very important — everything can be changed in seconds.
In the designing process, we are utilizing ready-to-use solutions like furniture or decorations from our partners, so we can guarantee to our clients that the lamp, wallpaper or the fruit bowl which they have chosen as a part of the decorations, will be exactly the ones which are presented in our renderings. So when our proposal is accepted, both parties have a clear vision and a map what will be purchased and where all elements go. And all that at the tips of our fingers.
3D design technology is also associated with noticeable cost reduction and increased project efficiency. Why? 3D models can be made available by the company creating the project and various entities involved in its implementation, such as contractors employed by the client in order to transform the virtual creation into a real living space, office space or usable space. More importantly, detailed three-dimensional designs allow you to see a given object, interior or entire house on each side before starting to implement.
What is the future of 3D technology in interior designing? Well — now 3D printers can print all the elements of the renderings. Thanks to that as interior designers, we could show our client a mock-up of the space. Can it be a welcomed solution? Time will tell.
