It’s fantastic that Belgard has taken the time to create inspiring design concepts of its own, but you may want to know exactly how those design concepts are going to look within the scope of your unique landscape. Fortunately, the Belgard Design Studio makes that possible.
You can input the specs of your property, upload drawings and even upload images of your project area into the system in order to see how certain materials and designs will actually appear once they have been installed. It’s the best way to be sure that you’re going to love your upgraded hardscape, both now and in the years ahead.
Benefits of Belgard Design Studio
Those who make take advantage of all that Belgard Design Studio has to offer won’t be disappointed. Here are some of the key benefits:
As mentioned earlier, one of the most challenging aspects of upgrading your home’s hardscape comes in having the peace of mind and assurance that the finished product is actually going to look good.
This type of assurance can only be had when you have the ability to accurately visualize how your property will look once the work has been completed.
When you make use of Belgard Design Studio, you’ll be able to take specific Belgard materials and see how they will appear within your own backyard so that you can be sure that this is the route that you really want to take with your home makeover project.
Understanding of Scale
This one goes hand-in-hand with having the ability to fully visualize how your new hardscape is going to look within your property. It’s one thing to generate a 2 dimensional mock up that shows you where certain Belgard products will go within your project space and to help you determine that you have the appropriate square footage to accommodate all of the features you desire, but seeing a flat image isn’t enough to make the best decisions for your home’s exterior.
You need a full 3D concept in order to get a true sense for the scale of your project. Certain Belgard products, like fireplace kits, outdoor counters, etc. will take up a bit of space and mass, and it’s important to know how far these elements will stick out, how tall they appear and how that will impact the overall flow of your outdoor rooms.
Helps with Mixing and Matching
Belgard encourages its customers to have fun with the design process and to take some creative license when it comes to mixing and matching products with different designs, textures, colors and patterns. That doesn’t mean that all materials will look good when paired together, though.
Making use of the Design Studio will allow you to play around with different materials and see which types of products actually compliment and work well with one another as opposed to those that might clash or look the best within your hardscape. This will help you to avoid making design mistakes that you’ll regret.
You’re not the only one that’s going to see your finished hardscaping upgrade. If you’re like most homeowners, you’re going to want to show off your outdoor living spaces by entertaining your friends, family and neighbors.
This means that their opinions count, too. When you employ tools like the Belgard Design Studio, it’s possible for you to show your design ideas, plans and 3D concepts to people you know and trust so that you can get their thoughts on your project. You may even get some inspirational ideas or tips from your nearest and dearest!
Making Use of Belgard Design Studio
After seeing all of the perks associated with working with Belgard Design Studio, you’re probably eager to get started. While certain 3D concepts can be downloaded directly from the Belgard website under the Design Studio section, more specific and customized tools may need to be accessed by a Belgard Authorized Contractor (BAC).
Before hiring a contractor, we recommend that you take measures to ensure that they are a BAC and that they make use of the Design Studio tool. This will give you the best possible experience with your hardscaping project.
