The basement is an important multi-use space in a client’s floor plan. However, designing a finished basement layout can be a time-consuming and frustrating process without the right tools.

2D Basement Layouts

Importing or creating a 2D basement design with Cedreo allows you to show clients all of the basement specifications, displaying the exact measurements for surface area and interior walls. With a couple of clicks, you can add 2D symbols to represent the furniture in the room. And as you add windows and doors to your basement blueprint, Cedreo renders them as symbols on the 2D floor plan.

Design Basement Layouts Online in Half the Time

Knowing how to design a basement is only half the battle. As a busy professional, you need a world-class basement design planner to help you do it as quickly as possible. Here’s how to design a basement with Cedreo.

1. Draw Your Basement Floor Plan Layout

You can import an existing basement design project or start from scratch. Intuitive tools, freehand drawing, and preloaded units make the room planning process simple and quick. Once the house’s ground floor plan is drawn, just duplicate the layout with a click to create the basement. Want to see it in action? Check out this video.

2. Add Windows and Wall Openings

Choose from a library of more than 650 window and door types. The dimensions of the preloaded window and door units are customizable. Add rolling shutter blinds and window sills, and they’ll show up as symbols in the 2D visualization.

3. Add a Staircase

Create a stairwell opening and connect the finished basement with the rest of the home by choosing from the wide variety of preloaded staircases, and set the dimensions to match the hopper.

4. Update or Add Dimensions

Update all the floor plan dimensions to customize your floor plan. You can update walls, doorways, window openings, appliances, and more. All of these will calculate in the surface area table to show you the sq footage of specific rooms, or the entire home.

5. Decorate and Furnish

After finishing the basement floor plan, windows, doors, and staircase, it’s time to decorate. Add another design element to the 2D and 3D visualizations by inserting tables, chairs, couches, beds, TVs, and more into the basement.

You can choose from more than 3,000 furnishing and decorating items in the basement design planner’s product library. And you can take each product a step further by customizing the color and dimensions within the application.

6. Generate a 3D Rendering

As you create in 2D, the finished basement will start to appear in the 3D window. Then, you can set up the lighting details for daylight or sunset views. You can create the photorealistic 3D rendering in less than 5 minutes, and it provides an opportunity to showcase the project in vivid detail. To showcase multiple variations of your basement design and give your client more choices, save the viewpoints and generate a 3D rendering for each variation in one click.

7. Share Finished Design With Team and Clients

Download the 3D renderings and scaled floor plans, and watch your clients’ faces light up as they see their finished basement design come to life. After saving money by skipping the 3D design firm, you get to save time by delivering a stunning basement design that meets every expectation.

With the Enterprise plan, you can share your designs with team members and customize them for other clients.
