About

New Home Visuals was launched in late 2009 with the aim to help new home buyers and renovators, visualize their home design ideas at an affordable cost. We specialize in creating visuals for 2D elevation plans and photographic images. And new to NHV, are kitchen visuals to help you get the look you want. All our work is produced by highly experienced professional artists, skilled in using industry leading software.

What is the process?

Select the type of project you would like completed by submitting an order. We will reply sending you an email invoice. After payment has cleared, work begins and is sent via email. You then have the opportunity to give feedback or make further changes. Elevation illustrations, photographic and kitchen visuals include two free revisions. There is no limit on the number of changes you can make for each revision.

How long does a visual take?

Elevation, photographic and kitchen visuals are often completed within 48 hours (sometimes less). Floor plans vary depending on location as well as time and current workload. We suggest you contact us if you have a specific deadline.

What are the costs?

See the pricing page.

How do I pay?

All payments are made through Paypal. Invoices are issued via email with instructions on how to pay.

Are the colors accurate?

The colors we use are an exact match as specified by the various paint and color companies. However due to the differences between live samples and the colors you see on your monitor, we cannot guarantee 100% accuracy in a visual image. We recommend that you check your chosen colors against an actual sample of the product before purchasing.

Can you suggest colors for me?

We give general color advice in terms of matching colors and color theory. But not in terms of deciding specific color names or codes. For that, we suggest you consult with a color stylist or interior decorator. We can recommend Michelle Stokes of DeNovo Concepts who specializes in home facades and interiors.

Photo visual from elevation plans?

We get asked this a lot... "Can you do a photographic visual from elevation plans only?".  Unfortunately no. Photographic visuals require a photo of an existing building such as a display home or a building part way through construction. Elevation illustrations are more suited to people who are planning the design of their home.

Do you provide architecture or drafting?

No. We do not do any structural building design or advice.

What types of files do you supply?

All images are in jpeg format and 72 dpi by default. Floor plans are print ready Acrobat PDF files. For other formats please contact us if you have a specific file request.
