If you operate in the Interior Design industry, then a big part of your success is probably due to your ability to communicate your design ideas to clients and convince them to go through with a project.

Communicating the complexity of a home design project and helping the clients make decisions isn’t that easy. But it is a challenge you can overcome with the right tools.

There are a lot of different ways that design software can be used in different stages of the client’s journey. Sixpence 21 LTD, an Interior Design Company, has achieved great success by using Cedreo during the conceptuals phase.

In this case study we're going to show you how Sixpence 21 LTD processed twice as many interior design conceptuals by reducing drafting time in half and helping clients visualize their projects much better than on 2D floor plans.

Sixpence 21 LTD Struggled to Sell Design Projects Because Clients Couldn't Visualize

2D floor plans were the only sales material that Sixpence 21 LTD used at that time. They had difficulty explaining new projects to her clients with 2D floor plans because they couldn’t understand what they were looking at when viewing 2D floor plans. Unfortunately, not many people outside of the architectural and interior design fields are able to visualize a finished project by looking at a 2D floor plan.

Sixpence 21 LTD quickly recognized the need to provide their clients with 3D renderings. They wanted to show them exactly what their space would look like after the work and furnishing take place and accelerate the decision making.

Sixpence 21 LTD Spent Too Much Time in Drafting Projects that Didn’t Convert

Sixpence 21 LTD then searched for an interior design software to easily draw floor plans and generate 3D renderings. Frankie Sharman from Sixpence 21 LTD, came across many different types of software that she tested carefully. With a lot of them, some important features were missing that made it impossible to draft interior design projects with the detail and precision required by a professional. Sketchup caught her attention because it seemed to be an all in one tool, from 2D floor plans to customized interior details, and eventually 3D renderings.

She used Sketchup for several months. The ramp-up period was long. It took her several weeks of daily work to be up and running with the program. And even after that, she had to spend days drafting floor plans that didn't always convert. This pre-sale process was definitely painful.

“My objective was to get photorealistic 3D renderings at a much faster pace to help clients visualize their projects and ultimately, boost the sales and overall profit.”

This is Where Cedreo Comes In

Sixpence 21 LTD heard about Cedreo as an easy-to-use interior design program. Sixpence 21 LTD signed up for a 14-day free trial and began with drawing a project she had originally designed with Sketchup.

“I started searching for a rendering software so I have previously tested SketchUp however I found from the trial period that I was able to achieve much more in a shorter amount of time using Cedreo. It literally takes me a couple of hours to do one plan with Cedreo!”

Sixpence 21 LTD quickly took the decision to switch from Sketchup to Cedreo. It was an essential tool for them to reduce drafting time and presenting photorealistic 3D renderings to clients.
