Aiding the Material Selection Process

By August 5, 2011No Comments
I’ve pulled up some of our old Google Sketch-up models and rendered them. I’m discovering and experimenting with its material palette, specifically how I can apply from a picture the actual material to a surface. For example, the first rendering below has the actual tile floor that we used, shower walls & feature strip. And if you notice the mirror has the actual reflection of the bathroom, which I obviously took after the bathroom was finished. My hope is that this can be a tool for material selection for future projects. For example, I can propose say three options to a client and apply actual wall color, granite color, faucets, tile color & texture, etc to aid in the material selection process. Pretty soon running around town to the tile shop, granite shop, plumbing showroom etc will be a thing of the past!
