Why Interior Designers Should Use Interior Visualisation?

Table of Contents

Interior designing has always been one of the most booming industries of all time. It’s the art of enhancing the interior of a building and the artists are called interior designers. Interior designers serve to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing environment for the people living in that building.

However, even the most experienced and veteran interior designers face the issue of effectively communicating their ideas to the client, or say, they used to face this issue. Thanks to 3D visualisation, this is not the case anymore. 3D visualisation in interior designing is crucial nowadays, let’s elaborate on this fact to find out why interior designers should use interior visualisation.

What is Interior Visualisation? 

Interior visualisation is a type of 3D visualisation technique used to create 3D renders of an interior design. It allows the designers to convert their ideas into beautiful and aesthetically pleasing 3D renders.

Previously, interior designers used to rely on time-consuming methods like drawings and illustrations like clay modelling, etc. Interior visualisation comes as a fast, cost-effective, and precise method to display the idea of an interior designer to the clients. Also, one can use photorealistic 3D renders of an interior design to attract potential clients, the process has never been this easy and effective.

Why Interior Visualization is Crucial for Interior Designers?

Interior visualisation provides a better and effective method to convey ideas to the clients. It can also be paired with cutting-edge technologies like Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality to deliver the best possible interactive experience to clients. Let’s discuss how interior visualisation is changing the whole interior designing industry for the better.

  • Offers a Realism No Illustration can Match

While there are artists who can draw life-like drawings on paper, there are not a lot of them out there and it’s also time-consuming. 3D models, on the other hand, provide a life-like render of the design which allows the client to effectively envision their space. The realistic view of your design effectively reflects your skills and experience in the industry. This makes it easier for the client to judge whether to work with you or not, while greatly increasing your odds of getting approval. No traditional illustration comes even close when it comes to offering a level of realism.

  • Attracting New Clients is Easier Than Ever

Instead of presenting complicated illustrations of the design, designers can now present a photorealistic 3D render to the clients which conveys the idea much more effectively than precise drawings and physical models.

Moreover, you can use your creativity and imagination to create mind-blowing 3D renders of your designs and put them on your website and social media handles. These 3D renders will directly reflect your expertise and experience in the industry so that the clients can pass a fair judgment on whether to use your services or not.

  • Simple to Create

Presenting your design using a 3D model is fast and simple to create, that is if you select the right tool. You can just install simple 3D software like Foyr or Cedreo and get going, it’s much easier than illustrating your design in a detailed drawing or physical clay models.

A 3D software allows you to create life-like 3D renders of the design, all you need to impress your clients or attract potential clients. Make sure you choose the best 3D software to ensure a fast learning curve. You don’t need complicated and feature-packed 3D software like Houdini to do this simple task, just normal 3D software will do the trick.

  • High Chances of Getting Design Approvals

As said, 3D models convey the idea better than any other method. You can use these 3D models to effectively present and explain your design to them. You can also add the dimensions of every aspect of your design to get an even detailed representation of the design. Moreover, these life-like photorealistic 3D renders look aesthetically pleasing, greatly increasing the odds of getting approval for your interior designs.

  • Can be Coupled with VR

Interior visualisation can be coupled with Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality to give the user an immersive, life-like experience. You can make your 3D render VR-ready so that your designs can be presented to the clients in the most effective way possible. All you need is a VR headset and capable hardware to render those models.

Furthermore, you make your designs interactive so that the clients can truly experience your design. The rate of getting approval drastically increases when the design is presented in Virtual Reality format. The best part of all is that it’s not that expensive anymore, the introduction of Google cardboard has revolutionized the VR industry and made it easily accessible while greatly increasing the affordability. All you need is a smartphone and a Google Cardboard VR to hold your smartphone. However, we recommend using a full-fledged VR headset to give a better impression.

  • Can be Coupled with AR

Augmented Reality or AR is another cutting-edge technology in the 3D industry. Unlike VR, AR is easily accessible and doesn’t require a decent initial investment. Anyone with a smartphone can access this futuristic technology. AR integrates 3D models with the real world in real-time. For example, you can point your smartphone camera to space where the designing work is to be done and you’ll be able to see the virtual designs in your smartphone. This will help your clients effectively envision their future interior spaces by judging how the proposed designs will look in their interior space.

  • Easy Revisions in the Design

Unlike those traditional complicated illustrations, 3D renders are easy to create and manipulate. You can imagine a situation where you have to adjust a few dimensions in your design, it will be so hard to do in the case of a physical clay model, or another precise illustration. 3D models, on the other hand, can be manipulated with a few taps on your keyboard. Furthermore, you can easily replace or shift elements in your virtual 3D environment with just a few clicks. Creating and editing these designs have never been this easy before.


There is no doubt that 3D modelling has revolutionized the interior design industry by making the processes fast, cost-effective, and less time-consuming. Interior design has come to a point where it will cease to exist without the aid of technology, 3D visualisation in particular.

Interior visualisation has helped interior designers around the world to present their ideas to clients in the best way possible. Clients get to see the photorealistic visualisation of the design and the designers get to convey their idea better, creating a win-win situation for both sides. Moreover, the process is cheaper than ever. The 3D models can be easily created with suitable software and capable hardware and can even be reused in future designs.

As if this was not overwhelming enough, the implementation of VR and AR in interior visualisation makes it even better. VR and AR are two cutting-edge revolutionary technologies, transforming any industry they step in, the interior design industry is no exception. The application of VR and AR makes the experience more immersive and optionally interactive. Clients tend to get overwhelmed while virtually experiencing the design in their spaces, drastically increasing the chances of getting approval.

So, even if you are a traditionalist who prefers nostalgic methods and doesn’t like these modern-day techniques, you’ve to admit that interior visualisation has revolutionized the interior design industry and made the difficult task of impressing clients a child’s play. The implementation of 3D visualisation in interior design is undeniably very powerful.
