The design world has seen enough mishaps to add more to it. Do your part by getting the right rendering artist! The right rendering artist knows the elements below, their entirety,  and their impact on your client's home. 

The 7 Design Elements

1. Space

Space can be categorized into two: Positive and Negative space. The part of your home which doesn't have any furniture is called "negative" space. The part that contains furniture is known as "positive" space. 

Space is bounded by the house's floors, walls, and ceilings. The area between the home's floor and ceiling determines the room's height or the house's space. The higher its height, the better it is for your clients who want an expansive feel for their home, especially if they have window walls that allow for more natural light and ventilation. However, note that if there is more space in your client's home, it will be more difficult to heat or cool the place, so better inform your clients about this.

Final Thoughts

All design elements play an essential role in your client's home. Each design element's impact may look complicated if not adequately mixed. That is why starting a home project excellently is imperative by getting the "right" rendering artist with a keen eye and creative taste—someone who can mix and match all the design elements beautifully.
