Furniture arrangement online: light programs for interior design


Repair is an interesting and fascinating process, butSometimes he stumbles on small, seemingly things. Gray tiles or brown, it will be convenient to watch TV in this corner or not, a standard cupboard or built-in - all these are trifles in comparison with the total amount of work, but they can prevent finishing the final stage of repair. Just for such cases, there are online interior planners What is an online planner

The essence of online interior planners is thatthese programs allow you to draw a three-dimensional plan of an apartment, virtually arrange furniture and see how it will look. They differ in the level of capabilities, but the basis is the same: the user selects the layout of the room, sets the parameters - and can see the volumetric model. Well, then you can add furniture. Our opinion:

- It is also good that there are a lot of free planners (in some cases you need to register on the owner's website, in others not). Simple planners

The simplest planners create a flat drawingPremises, most of us familiar with school drawing lessons. This is the simplest version - the analogy of the drawing with a pen on paper; It is usually needed if the room has architectural elements of complex shape - bizarre projections, niches, etc., which are sometimes difficult to imagine "on the fingers." Volumetric Schedulers

The second option is more interesting, it allows you to createvolumetric color model. You can set the size of furniture and rotate them: try several options for kitchen sets, rearrange objects around the room in a search, etc. You can also change the color of the walls and floors, move partitions, move windows and doors (this is often required by those who build their own house) or look for the most convenient place for the switchboard. Complex schedulers

But the most interesting option is "advanced"planners that allow you to create a complete volumetric model of the room. In them, you can set not only the color and size, but almost everything: the shape of pieces of furniture, style, any decorative elements, and so on. What will the room look like if you move the partition and put a sofa, a green carpet in the wall, or vice versa, is it worth painting this wall in a different color and if so, in what color - all this can be seen. Our opinion: - The resulting model can be seen from all sides, rotated and even watched like a movie, if the program has a "virtual tour" function. Planners from furniture manufacturers

A separate place among the planners occupyPlanners from major manufacturers (furniture, windows, doors, partitions, etc.). On their sites you can set the parameters of your room, and then "arrange" the furniture you liked in it from the manufacturer's catalog and see how it will look specifically in your case. The most famous of these planners is perhaps the IKEA planner. Complex layouts Planners can help within cases where the premises are of a complex, non-standard shape. It will also help when planning artificial "difficulties" - when creating a niche, bay window or complex false ceiling. They will also come in handy in cases where it is impossible to choose a piece of furniture - a kitchen set, for example. The ability to look in such cases is an indispensable option. 5 popular scheduling programs and opinionPros Professional design software such as 3DMax, ArchiCAD and AutiCAD are expensive and take time to learn. Available for free or for a nominal fee, hobby planners usually have a friendly interface, but their capabilities do not always meet the needs of even an amateur designer. However, this is a great way to get inspired, to outline what your apartment might look like if you made some decisions. Let's take a closer look at several popular Russian-language programs. 1.Google SketchUp Google SketchUP has a free version and a paid version. The main advantage of the program is a simple, intuitive interface and the ability to 3D-model your own objects. The dashboard is pretty easy to navigate, with tips, hints, and tutorials in case of problems. The library of components (furniture, materials) can be replenished, and some solutions can even be made dynamic, for example, a door can be opened with a mouse click. The V-Ray plugin is a professional rendering system that allows you to turn sketches into full-fledged renderings. Unfortunately, the free version will not allow you to transfer the result to another program, or even add text to the image. 2.Planner 5D The program, more precisely the Planner 5D web application, allows you to work on interior visualization through a computer or mobile device browser. It's nice that the audience of this Russian project in 2013 was already more than two million users, 80 percent of them are homeowners, 20 are professional designers and realtors. Now the application is shareware, but you need to pay extra for using additional catalogs. Inga Azhgirey, interior designer: - The Planner 5D program has a good selection of materials and furniture. Many possibilities for creating projects in houses of the most typical series and excellent descriptions. Of the shortcomings, I note the low dimensional accuracy, in real projects every millimeter is sometimes important, but here it is not taken into account. 3.Planoplan Planoplan is also a project of a Russian startup, an online service created on the basis of technologies used in video games, you can even "walk" through the finished visualization of apartments. The service catalog contains several thousand items of furniture, building elements and materials, even pet figures are available. For amateurs, all the possibilities are free, more professional options are paid for, for example, additional lighting and creating sections of the room. Oksana Kashenko, editor-in-chief of the portal: - Personally, my Planoplan program was unstable, gave errors and did not allow me to put the furniture in the right place. The catalog of free materials and furniture is too small for full-fledged work. Of course, when working with shareware programs, you need to understand that their main function is a general visual assessment of the project, small details in them cannot be controlled and they cannot replace full-fledged drawings and professional programs. 4.VisiCon VisiCon is a simple program for designing kitchens, bathrooms, even exhibition stands and retail spaces. The basic version can be bought for only 149 rubles, the professional version - for 1,400 rubles. The standard catalog of 3D models of available furniture is not that great, only about 600 items, but all of them were created on the basis of the products of Russian furniture companies and are notable for their realism. It is possible to load additional textures, including those created independently in graphics programs. five.Roomtodo Roomtodo is a free program that runs right in your browser, no download or installation required. A drawing of a room, even of a complex shape, can be loaded and simply outlined the walls. The catalog of materials and furniture is still small, but the authors are working on expanding and integrating it with the assortment of real manufacturers. They also promise to add an automatic calculation of estimates and the ability to post designs on social networks soon.
