SketchUp has been such a useful tool for me in a lot of my house remodeling/decorating, such as in this case with my bathroom remodel. Learning the basics of SketchUp was not hard at all, and it enabled me to realize a fairly true-to-proportion visual of my ideal bathroom. Of course it is not actually to draft spec—that’s for the pros to deal with.
Having a model made it really easy to decide on accents and style, instead of having to rely on the imagination. I debated on many styles of mirrors before settling on a large round one. On paper it seemed really big, but in the model it looked just perfect, so I didn’t have to doubt my purchase.
