A lot of interior designing is about meeting the expectations of your clients. Your designs can be terrific, but if they fail to meet your client’s expectations, you will have a hard time finding consistent work.
Thankfully, interior designing has gone about a massive revolution in the last few decades. From having to draw sketches using rulers and other equipment (which would inadvertently take hours) to being able to visualize the end design using 3D rendering (within minutes), there has been a complete transformation.
A good interior design is seldom made in a single go. You visualize an idea, work on it, rework it, and then make the final adjustments. In the past, it would mean that designers would often have to start fresh multiple times. With 3D rendering and visualization, these incremental upgrades can be inserted within seconds.

While this makes interior projects incredibly easy to design, there is a significant roadblock. There are a lot of 3D designing software in the market, and most of them are complex for designers to get a hang of.
Enter Foyr Neo – an innovative interior designing solution for everyone. It offers intuitive design tools and is laced with machine learning (ML) to give you more time to optimize your designs and ace your client’s work.
This article breaks down the process of using Foyr Neo to help even beginners transform client briefs into stunning 3D designs. To make things easier for you, we have laid down the entire process in six easy, actionable steps which guarantee impeccable results if done right.

A client design brief is where it all begins. It is a comprehensive document that acts as a guideline and sets the client’s expectations straight. A brief encompasses important factors, such as timeframe, budget, style preferences, measurements, etc.
So, irrespective of the project size, the first step is to translate the brief right and convert the client’s vision into actionable design elements. For this, you need to get in touch with the client, discuss the brief in detail, and understand their style and preferences.
One key thing to remember is to keep them involved throughout the design process and carefully explain how you are planning to go about each step. It would allow the client to give specific inputs that can make the overall process more holistic and ensure lesser reworks.
The inputs can be used to reflect the client’s personality too. You can use a careful mix of elements, such as having artwork that matches the client’s taste or creating a minimalistic feel by using a subtle color scheme. You have to dribble through the artistic choices carefully to capture the client’s essence and embed it into the design.
Say goodbye to the days when you would sit for hours trying to design the perfect interior design model only to realize that it doesn’t work and start all over again. With Foyr Neo, declutter your design workflow and use the leverage of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to create intricate interior designs.
Have questions like how to get started with Foyr Neo in your head? We’re here to help.
Foyr Neo is an interior design software that lets you create 2D floor plans and develop their 3D renders within minutes. From floor planning to editing your plans with accessories, colors, fixtures, and drag and drop to add textures, you can do it all with a few clicks.
Once the plan is ready, use our software to 3D render within minutes. In addition, our software supports a one-click 360-degree walkthrough to let you examine the project and fine-tune it before bringing it to life.
If you are having trouble, you can benefit from Foyr Neo’s AI-powered floor planning assistance to perform complex operations. Gain granular control and adjust the designs with the help of artificial intelligence to ensure a final design that meets and supersedes client expectations.
Do you have a CAD render of the interior design? Great. Upload it on Foyr Neo and get going instantly. If not, use our software to create a basic 2D sketch. Start with the floors and use our range of clutter-free features for a high-quality 2D render.
If you already have the initial sketch and are uploading it on our software, you can use the range of features to adjust the two-dimensional render. Once you feel you have the basics sorted, instantaneously shift to 3D models to get a more realistic visualization of the design project.
In addition, 3D visualizations also allow your client to get a clearer picture. Given that they get an almost accurate representation of the interior design along with the lighting and how the ambiance may feel, it also allows the client to suggest changes that can be taken into account and implemented within minutes.
The accurate representation, the flexibility to adjust instantaneously, and a more holistic overall feel means that a 3D rendering software like Foyr Neo can help you deliver what your client has envisioned almost every time. It makes your work so much easier compared to when you only have 2D sketches to work with.
Foyr Neo comes packed with over 2,000 design templates to help you kickstart your mockups. Or design something from scratch and effortlessly switch between 2D and 3D models with a single click.
Once the conceptualization and modeling part is sorted, we move on to the finer details. You add textures and elements to your Foyr Neo design projects for accurate prototyping.
Textures can include colors, patterns, and surface details to give a hyper-realistic look to the design. For this, it is important that you understand UV mapping. Also, it is easy to sacrifice credibility while adding these elements in a bid to make your design look perfect. A better choice would be to showcase real-life elements, such as shadows, seals, and more, as they are likely to appear.

Foyr Neo users get access to over 60,000 pre-built 3D models, which allows them to tinker with the design and ensure superior results with minimum wasted effort. From furniture to accessories and more, use them to refine your designs with ease. All you have to do is drag and drop elements to your design.
Looking to take it a step further? Go full DIY and create your 3D models from scratch, or upload an OBJ model to achieve the level of perfection your client would be proud of.
Having to send 2D renders via email every few days can be a true pain and can seriously hamper your workflow. Having the bliss of truly collaborative software that lets you share your ideas and get reviews in real-time can significantly shorten the time consumed. It can also lead to improved efficiency and ensure your client gets a bird’s eye view of everything you do.
