Our 3D Interior Visualization method aims to set order and cut production times of each project. By having in place, a strict management process that allows us flexibility, high-quality 3D visualizations.
This 3D method secures our market competitiveness directly takes time and doesn’t happen overnight. Took years of hard work and sleepless nights to adjust the right all processes which will allow us continuous work-flow.
Close collaboration with our Interior Design clients and partners sits across the system and assures that we are in constant elaboration.
We appreciate productive criticism as this allows us to evolve.
Below I will explain the fundamental steps for achieving high-quality 3D visualization that each Interior Visualization project must-have.

Step One for quality 3D visualizations: Initial Brief meeting
We are not one of the many Visualization companies or freelancers that get DWG’s and turn them into 3D models and visuals on the base – point and shoot. TALLBOX has a eleven-years of invaluable experience in the Interior Design and Build sector.
That is the reason that we always start with an Initial Brief meeting.
That meeting will lay the foundation of each project. We start by setting the agenda of these thirty or sixty minutes. Often meetings are virtual (skype, facetime or other) as we value our partner’s time.
We will discuss and research:
- general information about the project
- problems that may occur
- sketches / possible ideas that your design team have
- time constraints
- budget constraints
After all, information is gathered, we’ll discuss a possible 3D Interior Visualization strategy. Which after the meeting, we will provide in full writing (e-mail) in 12 to 24 hours.
3D visualizations as a jargon?
Before we delve deep into our 3D method, let’s clarify something that might not be obvious. 3D visualizations may be perceived sometimes as a jargon word for 3D rendering. A quick check with Wikipedia’s explanation, we find even more broad meaning.
Both words mean a similar thing, but they are used with different context to match the tone and the topic of the text. We have written a whole passage on 3D rendering where we use the word, and if you read the article, I am sure you’ll agree its matches the context better. You will find the link at the end of this article as well.
Now, let’s see what is exactly step two and the file exchange meaning.
Step two for quality 3D visualizations: File exchange
This is the time when we should receive full sets:
- DWG’s: Floor plans, Construction, Ceiling plans, Furniture
- Design sketches: Hand sketches, Sketchup or Photoshop collages
- Specification lists
- Photos of current conditions
- References: Mood boards or Reference photos
Anything that will be helpful for us to use for 3D interior visualization.
Don’t worry; we provide a list of those required.
The experience shows that not all projects are at an equal stage where all documents are present. Some of the architectural visualization projects we work on are at Mood board stage or pitching stage while other comes as a complete package of documentation.
Luckily our system allows us to start and finish almost every project at every stage.
It is not a rare occasion where we support with interior design assistance to finish the project by communicating directly with the end client on our partner’s behalf.
Step Three for quality 3D visualizations: Building-up the 3D models and views
It’s not an exciting stage for you but is important to set up the base of the project.
- perspectives and views
- the boundaries of the model
- structure – walls, floors, ceiling, openings
This is where we check if there are any mistakes in translating from 2D to 3D.
These types of images we refer as Clay renderings.
By going through this stage, we solve all solids and volumes. You should not expect to see any details or materials, yet. The purpose here is to clear out all hanging related to space only.
Usually, we don’t advise showing these images to end-clients if the layout is agreed. On occasions where the project is not further down the design stage, and the layout is not sorted fully, we advise and insist on showing and discussing with the end-client.
Typical end-client questions you should expect to get:
Is this the 3D interior visualization?
Where are my chair and table?
Can you show me other perspectives?
I can’t wait to see the coloured version of the 3d file!
Can we see a night version?
A lot of the questions might be directly relevant. The list does not stop here, but you get the sense of what should you expect.
We developed a custom solution that will answer most of the questions up front, which means – less hassle on your end.
Our 3D Interior Visualization Interactive tool gives you unlimited possibilities to communicate your design ideas.
Voice messages, video, info. Boxes, light-boxes, URL integration, comment boxes (two-way interaction), website integration (yes, you can integrate this into your website) and many more options.
Our interior design partners loves this tool, as it saves of time back and fourth dealing with client questions.Josh Levis – Interior Designer
Pre-design 3D visualization stage
When all questions are answered we move to the next stage, which is fun – materials and textures.
Step Four for quality 3D visualizations: Setting materials and textures
Pre-design Phase. That is the time where we need You to become the ultimate decision-maker.
This magical moment where the white and empty clay renderings become comfortable spaces with texture, details and colours.
Those mood boards and specification sheets come in use here. We test and implement furniture, lights, soft furnishings, tiles, floors, wall colours – everything. When the internal areas are approved, we build the local environment in 3D or by 2D collages (if agreed).
Sadly, the Fun part is quite time-consuming for both sides. We would be asking for your opinion, sending draft visuals of the project.
We value your time, and this is the reason for our R & D module at the beginning of each 3D visualization project.
With your help – together we will come up with a plan on the atmosphere and aesthetics of space.
Often we visualise even light studies to find out how the environment will interact with materials and light.
Interior 3D Visualization Light Study
Our light studies are 95 per cent reflection of the reality, which means we take real values of all light fixtures, sun position and local environment in our calculations. Working with the lighting designer and expert helps us to determine what should be improved.
* Interior Visualization Light Studies is an additional service which includes a third-party specialist
Step Five for achieving high-quality 3D visualizations: Project submission
Images will speak for themselves. At this point, it is likely your end client to be thrilled and excited about their project.
Once we finish with rendering and post-production we would provide you with all agreed Interior 3D Visuals at 300dpi. and 3K or 4K resolution.
Use 3D Visualizations to demonstrate the evolution of a project
One of the many ways to demonstrate architecture and interior by 3D visualization is a time-lapse or before – after the video. This type of information can be useful for the end-user to understand the amount of work that sits behind a 3D project. It can also be used for marketing purposes on any website (if the project is commercial) or for investor presentations. The only restriction is that it can be made at the end of the process when all of the images and materials are finalized and agreed.
At this point there shouldn’t be more changes or comments. But as we live in world where everything is possible, we provide the opportunity to amend what is picked up by you or your client. After evaluation from our side, we will come back with schedule for execution, details and terms.

FAQ: 3D Interior Visualization method
The difference is significant. Although it may look that all 3D renderings can’t be much different, our Interior Visualization method is a whole system of processes proven by time and experience.
We don’t do just 3D renderings, we have a system in place, and client management that ensures we have covered all points from the brief and delivered images are quality work that will win the client’s opinion.
Yes. 3d visualizations have the capability to demonstrate the process from birth through the end phase and all in detail. The most essential part of this presentation is fiding a way which is the most appropriate to present the idea.
No. Many use both terms with one purpose to deceive clients but in reality, they are two very different services. Architectural Illustrations is the depiction of architecture and interior design into non-realistic images. You can read more about that here: 3D Architectural Rendering Or 2D Architectural Illustration [Examples]
3D Interior Visualization services are a whole system constructed to work as a machine delivering high-quality products to other fellow Interior Designers that need 3D renderings.

Yes, as Interior Designers, we know how important it is for your client to feel special and in good hands.
The 3D interior animations that we can deliver at the conceptual stage are a mixture of 3D Interior renderings, still, images, sound, text information, interactive images and real-life video all combined into an immersive short animation.
This product almost instantly by itself will provide answers to tons of questions that your clients may have.
We love what we do. 3D interior walkthrough animation is one of our specialities.
We put a lot of effort to tell a story and make the 3D animation be experienced as if in real life by the spectators.
Telling a story in 3D interior walkthrough animation provides value that will help your interior design project to be loved and experienced long before is a reality.
Although, it is a broad topic usually Interior visualization projects are calculated based on multiple factors.
Often, we work in packages of 3D interior renderings, Concept Images and Animation in other words – the level of engagement.
The more services you order, the less you pay.
Our full level of engagement as 3D Interior Visualizers for your Interior Design project may vary from £3500 / $4300 up to £8,500 / $10400 (with an unlimited amount of 3D renderings, up to 60 seconds 3D interior animation and many more)
Costs per 3D Interior Rendering starts from £490 / $600 – £690 / $850 and they can go up depending on the project specification and challenges as short deadlines or unique models and materials. More can be found on this page along with some other information: Architectural and Design Visualization prices.
3D Interior Visualization images alone can’t improve your profits by more than 20 per cent without a proper marketing strategy.
If you have a strong marketing idea and working towards it, 3D Interior Visualization can be of great use at any stage for social networks, online ads, offline ads, magazines and many other channels. The good thing for 3D Interior Visualization images is that they can be exported to many other marketing tools. Ask your 3D Interior Visualization provider or e-mail us for more information.
On many occasions where time is short, but you’ve back it with more information and approved materials from clients – yes, we can skip some of the steps and produce interior renderings even faster.
Although this is a day-to-day job for us, we do not advise this, as skipping steps, it doesn’t mean directly that the costs will be less. Less time for the production of 3D Interior Visualizations for us means that we have to compress more work into a short amount of time.
We are not keen to lower the quality of the service we provide, but we can deliver the minimum viable product that will do the job. Instead of a full package of the service you can have, we’ll provide a 3D Interior Visualizations tailored to meet small budgets. Let us know what your budget is and what time frame you have.
If you are Interior Designer by degree or skills, there’s nothing to stop you become a 3D Interior Visualizer. It’s all about learning the right tools and spending time on honing the skills. We have an article on that topic that gives you some understanding between two of the main visualization approaches 3D Architectural Rendering Or 2D Architectural Illustration [Examples] and a guide for Interior Designers and how they increase profit with Interior Visualization.
3D visualization is another way of saying the same thing but in the context of the architecture and interiors. According to Wiki, the term Visualization alone is ( is any technique for creating images, diagrams, or animations to communicate a message.)
But if we go back to using the words in architecture or interior contexts, both terms mean a very similar thing, but they are used with a different way to match the tone and the topic of the text. You can find more about 3D rendering in the link below.
