How to draw a 3D Bathroom?
Do you have a bathroom renovation project in mind? If there is one room that requires 3D modeling before any renovation project, it is this one. We tell you more.
Like the kitchen, this room is one of the hardest to renovate. Because of the restrictions imposed by the plumbing system, the frequent lack of openings to the outside and the limited surface area, the stakes are not only aesthetic.
More than anywhere else, the functional must be considered as much as the beautiful. Install a vintage clawfoot bathtub, yes! But is there room for a shower for everyday use? A double sink is ideal for couples, but will there be enough storage space left?
Unlike other rooms in the home where decorating can be done over time, the bathroom must be thought out and designed before any work begins.
That’s where HomeByMe enters the picture! Thanks to this 3D planner, you will be able to test all your ideas – even the craziest ones – before buying anything.
Whether it’s a total renovation with a change of water installations, an extension of the room or something else. Or a simple decorating refresh: test, add, remove, move all the big brand (or generic!) objects and furniture endlessly. That is, until you’ve designed the perfect bathroom.
Start designing a 3D bathroom
With HomeByMe, design a bathroom in the blink of an eye! We explain the main steps to design your 3D project easily:
First things first: create a bathroom plan
Start by designing the layout of your bathroom, otherwise known as its foundations. This includes the walls, doors and windows, as well as any other architectural elements that make up the structure of the room.
To do this in our 3D planner, access the toolbar at the top left of the screen. Click on the first “Floor Plan” icon to reveal the drop-down menu. Select “Add Wall“, and you will be automatically redirected to a 2D version of your plan.
Choose the thickness of your walls, then use your cursor – transformed into a pencil – to draw your walls, the measurements will be displayed as you go along. If this seems time-consuming or complex, you can choose to create your plan according to pre-defined rooms.
Choose a shape, fill in the desired dimensions, then insert it directly into your project. Once the walls have been created, all you have to do is add the doors and windows. To do this, click on the “Products” icon in your navigation bar, then on “Build” in the drop-down menu.
You will have a multitude of choices for your doors and windows, enough to reproduce the bathroom in question:
- Swinging, patio, garage or sliding doors
- Single, double or sliding windows
- French windows or roof windows
It’s all there!
Finish integrating the basics of your project by adding all the essential amenities of a bathroom: electrical installation, heating and air conditioning, plumbing or other, everything is in the “Technical equipment” section of the “Build” tab.
How to install the floor and wall covering of a bathroom
The next step, and not the least, is to choose and add the floor covering. Go to the “Decorate” tab in the “Products” section to start.
There you will find a wide selection of designs and materials to choose the ideal floor and wall covering for this room:
- Tiles (wall and floor), most commonly used for bathrooms
- Concrete and bricks
- Natural stone
- Parquet flooring
- Vinyl, resistant to water, it can be considered for a bathroom
- Paint, wallpaper and paneling
Just click on the material of your choice to access the large catalog available.
Add furniture to a bathroom in a few clicks
Now that your room is complete, all you need to do is furnish it. Let’s start with the most important equipment, i.e. the shower/tub, the sink and the potential toilet. Go to the “Bathroom” category in the “Furniture” section of the “Products” tab. Everything is there to make this bathroom complete: from faucets to mirrors, from storage furniture to towel racks.
If you have a particular style in mind, or a favorite brand, feel free to use the filters on the left side of your screen. Among other things, you can filter this catalog of content by style, material, color and brand.
