SketchUp for Kitchen Bath Interior Design

Eric Schimelpfenig
  • Turn 2D plans into useful 3D models

    CAD drawings can be hard for clients to read, but colorful perspectives and illustrated plans are something anyone can understand. Show your clients exactly what they’ll be getting by walking them through 3D models you make with SketchUp Pro.

  • Feel free to draw anything you want

    Unlike clunky, rules-based 3D modeling software, SketchUp Pro gives you the freedom you draw anything. Design unusual shapes and custom objects all you like. Never let your designs be limited by complicated and restrictive tools.

  • Access the world’s biggest repository of 3D models

    You don’t have to build everything you need from scratch. In fact, hundreds of thousands of objects—from furniture to cabinets to appliances to people—are available for download from SketchUp’s 3D Warehouse.

  • Improve communication with your clients

    When it comes to showing clients exactly what you’ve designed for them, nothing beats a 3D model. Eliminate unpleasant surprises and expensive change orders by using SketchUp Pro to make sure everyone’s on the same page.

  • Iterate through design ideas quickly

    Working under tight deadlines (and even tighter budgets), the last thing you need are complicated, expensive tools. SketchUp Pro is perfect for trying—and presenting—lots of options in very little time. Before long, you’ll be modeling live in client meetings.

  • Build assets from photographs

    Turning a photo into a 3D model is a piece of cake with SketchUp Pro. Use photographs you take or images you find online to create your own catalog of objects that you can use over and over again.

  • Create compelling visualizations and walkthroughs

    Take your client on a tour of their new space before it’s built. Use SketchUp Pro to create walkthroughs that help them fall in love with your design. You can even export your walkthroughs as videos that they can share with friends and family.

  • Produce beautiful interior renderings

    You can make your SketchUp Pro model views look as sketchy or as realistic as you like. Apply your own hand-drawn rendering styles, choose from a library of presets, or use one of many plugins to produce jaw-dropping photorealistic images.

  • Communicate visually with project stakeholders

    Everyone knows that a picture’s worth a thousand words. Use SketchUp Pro to get clients, architects and contractors—every single important person on your project—all headed in the same direction.

  • Solve complicated spatial problems

    Sketchup Pro can help you figure out the work triangle, complex ceilings, tight spaces and material transitions—kitchens are shockingly complicated affairs. Your 3D model will explain what’s possible to your clients, clear as day.

  • Make your model views look hand-drawn

    Computer models can seem cold and intimidating to clients. SketchUp Pro lets you make your model views look like warm, approachable hand drawings. Use a preset or create a custom style based on your very own hand-drawn strokes.
