visualizing the complete after....

Many designers use renderings to relay our visions to our clients.   When I first meet with a client, I can clearly see the end result in my mind.  Relaying this information to the homeowner is at times more challenging than relaying it to others.  While I have great visualization skills, I DON’T have great drawing skills.  Some designers are blessed with the ability to create spectacular hand drawn renderings.  I do not.  As for me, I use a great computer program.  Here are some samples of rooms rendered for the purpose of helping my client to visualize her space!

One Response to Renderings by Hand or Machine?

  1. You’re absolutely right, Angela, that most consumers would rather put their investment into the products and design services rather than full-color renderings. Perspective sketches, whether drawn by hand or a CAD program, are effective tools when there is going to be a major layout change in a kitchen, bathroom, or addition, or any structural changes such as new windows or raising the ceiling. Using an object-oriented or building information modeling (BIM)program makes it easy to place a virtual camera anywhere in the space, to show what the room is going to look like — to scale! — in hidden-line or photorealistic views. CAD plans, elevations, and perspectives are easy to e-mail or share in one of the virtual meeting sites. Technology can be wonderful (when it works well).
