How to Render a Beautiful Scene: Part 1 - Interior Living Room

Rendering interiors and exteriors isn’t always a linear process. Even with a well-designed, furnished and textured model, you may still face numerous rendering considerations, from the scene’s lighting strategy to its object arrangement and material customization.

In this first edition of our three-part series, “How to Render a Beautiful Scene,” we’re breaking down the rendering process and workflow for a stylish interior living room (below). The process outlined here is not meant to be definitive, but we hope it provides some insight into how you can render more beautiful, and effective, interiors.


Whether through your lighting strategy, an effects stack or customized material settings, making a true-to-life render has countless benefits. And although you may be focusing on showing the function and form of your designs, a beautiful render can affect your audience’s feelings of well-being, mood, comfort and motivation. It influences how they perceive all the other elements of your scene.
