Add in your geolocation to get an idea of how the natural lighting effects the room. You are able to adjust the brightness of the room with the adjustable lighting tool.
It has a split mode that gives you both the 2D and 3D layouts of the room. Either way, it is visually stunning and a great replica of what you can expect your room to look like.it is easier and simpler to move pictures around, recreate the wall color than to drag your furniture around and go paint color hunting with swatches of paint on the walls. Only to find that the color is all wrong and the wall unit makes the room look lopsided.
