Best Interior 3D Rendering: How Should They Look?

It certainly takes amazing skill and experience to master the art of 3D interior design images. And choosing the right architectural visualization 3D studio to help you launch that next architectural idea or project can seem like a daunting task.

There’s an overwhelming number of details you need to pay attention to if you want your 3D images to turn out just right for your architectural project — and it takes a lot of time and effort to achieve this.

Even the smallest changes in the texture, lighting, or décor can have a huge impact on the overall appeal of your 3D interior render and can mean the difference between an obviously photoshopped image — and a photo-realistic one.
Fortunately, Faraday 3D has you covered!

Today, Faraday 3D shares with you our comparisons, thoughts, and facts targeting the best 3D interior rendering — to help take your next architectural project to the next level.

There is a saying in sales: the shortest path to a sale lies through the customer’s hands. Sensing every curve, flipping every switch and moving whatever there is to move creates a strong desire to own. This is why salesmen will always insist that you take that gadget in your hands.

But what if you are a real estate agency or an architectural firm trying to sell a yet-unfinished and hence impalpable property? One solution is to forget the above law. The other one is to resort to high-end interior 3D rendering, making the sight alone work for the other four senses. Is it possible? Let’s see.

Here are five works by true masters of 3D visualization. Your first reaction will be "wow, these are beautiful shots"! But in reality these interiors are designed on a computer. You can spend hours eyeing them, so vivid and photo realistic they are in each detail and nuance.

Interior by Faraday 3D

photo-realistic interior 3D visualization

We're really proud to present you with this work. More images from this interior you can see on Behance

Take a look at the following things:

  • overall lightning: we tried to replicate the Scandinavian style interior lightning which looks great on this render quite a lot of small details but whole interior is not overwhelmed
  • pay attention to floor texture. In some places it reflects light, in some it's not. It doesn't look as crystal new as you may see on ordinary renders. By taking a look at this floor - you understand - people are living here which creates warm feelings about this interior.

And if the interior rises feelings - then the work of 3D is completely done. This is the end goal of interior 3D renders - wake up feelings and emotions in the eyes of potential buyers

This is a special, very emotional work:

interior 3d rendering

  • Look at the water running from the tap. It is so well crafted that you can almost hear the sound of it slapping against the sink!
  • Another fine detail is the bottle surface. Note the reflections, which are not perfect, as a less diligent designer would make them, but accurately conveying a realistic, uneven glass texture.
  • The cloth under the bottles and the soap (another well-crafted item!) shows every fold! It is also slightly translucent, like a leaf looked through at a sunny day. Such subtleties are seldom taken care of, but they count for a great deal of realism.
  • The scene has a realistic depth of field and chromatic aberrations.

As a result, no homemaker would resist the urge to spend a couple of hours cooking here. More works of this author you can find here.

Any 3D interior has a purpose

interior 3d visualization

Any 3D interior has a purpose: to make the customer want to live (work, play — delete as applicable) inside it. Here she will be able to see all she needs to make the right decision:

  • The incredibly detailed brick wall, with a hand-crafted, non-repetitive texture, slight cracks and stains — just as a real one would be.
  • The bedspread with unbelievably authentic folds and elaborate materials. You can almost feel the coolness of the silk as you stroke it in your mind’s eye.
  • The wooden wall with painstakingly nuanced texture and materials, making the rendering indistinguishable from a professional photograph.

Flawlessly rendered details create an atmosphere of coziness and spiritual freedom, so valued by the creative type. No artist would withstand the desire to own this small studio. More works of this author you can find here.

This interior 3d rendering has a whole range of features

interior 3d rendering of living room

This 3D rendering has a whole range of features making it the best in our today’s review:

  • The material of the sofa is crafted so thoroughly that you can spend hours watching its elegant roughness, imagining its cushy upholstery embracing your body and the exquisite scent of its leather entering your nostrils.
  • The atmosphere is just right: the lighting is soft, avoiding glares on bright surfaces.
  • There are chromatic aberrations — those almost imperceptible “fringes” of color along high-contrast boundaries that come naturally in a photograph. Fancy what a real pro can make with bare hands!

If you only see the final result, you might think: “Okay, that’s good interior photography, but that’s it.” This is precisely the point. A truly high-end interior 3d rendering work will make you forget that it is actually a 3D visualization, so elaborate and realistic it is!

This rendering conveys the atmosphere and subtleties of the interior and serves as a great promotion for a company that was wise enough to hire a truly professional 3D designer. More works of this author you can find here.

A cozy interior 3d rendering

This cozy 3D interior also meets all the mentioned criteria:

  • If you take a closer look at the chair, you will see dents, scratches and scuffs, as if it’s several years old. With such a degree of elaborateness, it’s almost impossible to argue that it is a visualization and not real photography.
  • The carpet has an authentic texture with no repetitive patterns and correctly conveys natural lighting and shadows.
  • Even the concrete wall, though hard to be seen, is a bit dusty and stained: the designer took care of subtleties that you would perceive on the unconscious level only.
  • The visualized space has a realistic depth of field.

This is one more interior 3d rendering with brilliantly expressed atmosphere

Very good interior 3d rendering

  • The shabby window frame is scratched and its painting a bit cracked and uneven.
  • There is an authentic reflection in the window glass. A while ago it would definitely mean that it’s a photograph we’re looking at.
  • The chair leather is scratched and scuffed, revealing its venerable age.
  • Leaves on the twigs are so elaborate that you could literally feel their autumnal dryness.
  • The floor is anything but simple, one more proof that the designer paid a great deal of attention to the assignment.
  • The brightest spots are a bit overexposed, as if shot with a camera and not created from the ground up using computer software.
  • The “gem” of the rendering is the old drying rack on the right. Its every feature, however inconspicuous, is elaborated to the finest detail: scratches, cracking paint, and cloth hanging down in folds as if about to come off and fall down at any moment.

Due to the sedulous approach to details, the author precisely expressed the mood and atmosphere of the room. More works of this author you can find here.

What do these interior 3d rendering have in common?

It is the authentic atmosphere, as though you are standing inside these interiors and hear the sounds, sense the smells, touch the textures. If you present your services with such 3D visualizations at hand, the customers will feel as though they have really visited these rooms.

Which brings us back to the beginning of the article: let people touch what you are offering, and they will become your happy clients. And this is what a high-end interior 3D design makes possible.
