You can also decorate your renovation with over 100,000 different furniture models, materials, structural features (such as, bay windows and sliding doors), and light fittings. You’re also able to switch freely between 2D and 3D as needed to perfect your plan. The paid plan starts from $15 a month and provides access to higher-quality renderings in 4K, 12K, 720P, and 1080P (alternatively, you can simply pay for these versions as you need them).
