Struggling to see beyond a blueprint?

By | Blog

Let’s face it, blueprints and 2D floor plans are difficult to understand, especially when they’re thick with symbols and abbreviations – things the average person won’t necessarily understand.

All new construction projects, and most home remodels, will have blueprints. But not everyone knows how to decipher them. We hear this sentiment from our very own clients – even with elevation drawings in front of them, they cannot picture it! So why not show them a 3D floor plan rendering?

Why You Should Consider 3D Floor Plans

3D floor plans are an important component of any project – both large and small. 3D floor plans give your client a better view of the home long before construction ever begins. 3D floor plans show the layout of a home or office in 3D, provides scale and proportion of rooms and living areas and gives the viewer a better understanding of the big picture.

Benefits of 3D Floor Plans:

  • Highlights design features in a home
  • Creates a connection with your audience that conveys emotion and vision.
  • Easy to visualize how furniture will fit
  • True to scale proportions of a room or space
  • Easy detection of design flaws for custom designs
  • Enhances marketing/advertising campaigns
  • Cost effective option vs. interior renderings of multiple rooms

Are You Considering 3D Floor Plans for Your Next Project?

3D floor plans are a great and cost-effective way to communicate your project in 3D. Don?t let your clients struggle to envision their next project ? remember that high-quality 3D visualization sells projects!
