The interior design industry has made significant progress over the years. This is largely attributed to major improvements in 3D rendering technology. Suffice it to say that offering 3D rendered interior designs to the average client out there has become a norm in the industry. What factors do you think are responsible for this surprising trend?

Come to think of it, who are these interior designers?

Do you think that interior designers are ordinary decorative holders? Well, the interior designer of the 21st century is no mere decorator by all standards, rather they are special people with unique skillsets.

That said, the modern design career has grown in the past 20 years to become a profession of excellence. Interior designers are the finest brands of well-trained professionals, who are providing their skills to uplift the profession of architecture to the best level. They use pattern, colon, lighting, and style to bring out the best designs. Interior designers know exactly what works and how much it costs as well as the pieces to bring together to bring out the best in a house which the average homeowner doesn’t know.

An interior designer cannot count their successes or achievements in this profession without acknowledging the recent advancements in 3D architectural visualization and 3D rendering. In essence, these architectural tools have turned around the hands of the design enthusiasts in many positive ways, providing a level playing ground that fosters unity within the community and demands excellence for survival.

Interior Design in the Last Two Decades

What was it like in the last 2 decades?

Things were much different in the last two decades.  Then, a client would be shown a few of colored and hand-drawn renderings of the plan for the interior make-up in a meeting. They would look at the material samples and lay it very close to another one just to find a palette both the interior designer and the client were comfortable with. This is the most painful and time-consuming aspect of the job.

The beauty of the whole thing is that at the end of the whole show, the client would put their trust and confidence in the interior designer to deliver a great architectural piece.

Do you think there is anything wrong with the above approach? No, rather you must trust the interior design expert as a matter of necessity because if they fail at what they do, they won’t have a job. Computer technology coupled with the best of vocational education and training has embellished the interior designer-client meeting with greatest values which have to remove errors of any kind from the process.  As a result, clients are more confident, comfortable, and willing to leave the way so that the designer can do their job with ease.

The concept of 3D rendering has really opened a wonderful channel of communication between stakeholders in the profession. Furthermore, it has allowed the interior designers to showcase their admiration for the spatial and material organization by letting the world know what is achievable. Consider the textures, distance of field, lighting, and furniture, glazing and outlets and everything you would see in the smooth clean change of your dull old sitting room are now configured in complete clarity and brevity. That is the power of 3D design and rendering.

Positive Attributes of 3D Rendering

Interior designers are unique professionals just like any other serious profession as they possess a huge knowledge base in a very specific area. The interior design job goes way beyond simply having a good taste, it involves a very strong training, practice, and rightful application to know how to produce something of great value and worth. Designers have never been able to showcase these specific skills than now.

Maybe you don’t like the banana print curtains over the sink, what do you do? You just simply exchange them for a number of grapes in a matter of seconds.

Here are the benefits you can derive from 3D rendering.

  • Clients, especially those ones that have a decent taste can now recognize the fact that it is better to use 3D rendering because of the tools they provide.
  • A designer can showcase to a client what a good taste is and they will pay handsomely for it.   
  • An unproductive six hours of the meeting can be turned into a productive one-hour meeting. This means that the transformation can be visible almost immediately. 
  • 3D rendering software has a lot of libraries of textures, furniture, glazing treatments, lighting, and plumbing fixtures, and even molding profiles for interior designers to use on the go, to bring a great architectural masterpiece.
  • The interior designer can easily populate the 3D design space with existing tables, pendant lights, and chairs, thus having the wealth of resources at their disposal to deliver an awesome job within a short while.

Nowadays, manufacturers have started digitizing their catalog in 3D animations and models just to be represented by the experts (such as Philips Lighting, Kohler, Duravit and others) who would recommend them. This has made interior designers be more respectful and expand their product-base to offer clients more options at a faster rate.

All these attributes are quite good, but the design prowess comes with a big responsibility attached to it. In some cases, growth and advancements in technology can cause designers to become dull. Hence, they can easily fall for the support a sparkly new interior design can offer without putting in the hard work required to attain the height.

Although your good works will speak for itself if you are good at your job, the latest computer software has brought with it fraudsters. So, if you planning to hire an interior design specialist, ensure they have the requisite experience and many completed jobs to attest to their ability.

Looking into the Future of Interior Design

Having considered the past two decades in the interior design space, one will say that the future of interior design is bright. The design professionals are expected to have more training and gain the respect of other specific design areas. Smart architects will always refer to good interior designers as professionals of the highest repute. They can promote good design to a greater height, implement 3D visualizer, and take a great design to the summit.

Kudos to advancements in 3D rendering as many people are now realizing its revolutionizing effects on design interior and architectural visualization. The positive transformations are coming faster and the interior design community is not left out. Indeed, 3D rendering has a future with interior design!
