BUNGALOW by Valentinapenta They do a bad render copy for a nice render room just to have their logo on it ! The only thing I hate more than anything is (...) like here and i know it is possible that this is my last comment here but i HAD to tell that to the community. Sorry. I think that a biseness is a biseness : we never have to pay ??? I like this community and hope i should do rooms again with you, but just for fun, if...

Please search this tutorial : you may find answers at many basic questions. Thank.
Have you added any items from the "New" tab? occasionally we have issues with brand new items
Is the darkness/brightness over the whole room or in one area eg the ceiling area is very shadowed?
Which side of your plan are the windows?
I have tried everything which I know...but for me doesn't look right. It is too bright even the window on the right on the back wall was not there before, and it was only one behind the camera, maybe it is something to do with wallpaper...
Or could you make the main windows slightly smaller without making a huge difference in the overall look - they are definitely flooding the room with light looking at the shadows.
Or add a blind to each of those windows - look for one that is not the full drop and put it high up so it only masks part of the top of each window.
I was looking at your home theatre room - which is very nice as it is - and wondering if replacing the two doors on either side of the stage with windows the same size might even the lighting out in that
I have to agree I have tried more opitions here changing the position of the windows, different blinds and sceneries. In the end I deleted one back window on the right and put back window behind the camera, changed the scenery for the darker one, put window opposite main windows as you said and painted ceiling more darker colour and changed the curtains completely. The result is:
This is really quirky room...
Home theatre has definitely got a light boost from the changes - but not where I expected it ... it is still grainy right at the back. Still a really nice room.
If you mean a picture you downloaded and use as ''wallart'' on a wall you select the wall where is the picture, at left you will see the shape of the wall with the picture.You can reposition it with you mouse and at the right bottom corner there is a little square.When you put you mouse on it, it will change as a cross.Click and drag to resize it.
i need a few tips, How do i change the size of an item? are there people we can put into the program to reference size? How can i export a 3D look to my computer or email?
There are screen capture softwares as well but I have never needed those.
and it looks beautiful, How can I get the landscape outside and the light entering through the window in the room?? Thank u!
Asking since I'm doing my internship now for MCA and wanted to do similar project.. It will help me if you'll tell
I tutorial in questa discussione siano pervenute nel corso di diversi anni di e non posso correggere i collegamenti spezzate (questo mi rattrista) - che abbia chiesto al personale (Roomstyler) se può essere risolto da loro.
Non si utilizza Microsoft Windows 7 o 8 con Google Chrome - questo ha conosciuto problemi e, a volte congela il programma. Altri browser Internet sembrano belle, anche se con Windows 7 o 8
Since today I'm having problems on that.
Try to clean my Chrome cache but the problem still remains!
This way is impossible to do anything :(
If you don't have Windows 7 or 8 then check you didn't accidentally press the scroll lock button on your keyboard.

I've changed to IE and works fine.
Thanks so ever :)
I have a Mac and in the IE on Mac this does not happens.
But still, this only starts to happen today. Yesterday it worked fine on this PC and I did not do any changes, no upgrade, nothing new in this PC.
Scrool works fine in other websites and this just happens in the catalogue.
For architectural items, I would suggest you use the general categories instead.
There you will find a new category called in fact 'Architecture', and once you click on that one, you will see the following:
All is much more neat and organised by subcategories easy to browse for the users.
Hope this helps with your designs
And this one for many tips about the planner.
The second link form Bibiche is this thread - in here the technique you need is referred to as "Applying Scenery"
If you want a wall shelf with thing on try this work round: Place a dining table with an extending leaf outside the room so just a 'shelf' sticks through the wall. Use one of the white pedestal items (architecture) outside the room to change the height of the table (shelf - now items will stand on your shelf.
If you want things to stand on the shelves of a book case do the same thing with a glass dining table.
It takes a little practice to get right but it looks great when you work it out. I will come back shortly a link a couple of rooms where I did this so you can look and see.
Here is one way to manipulate your scene before you upload the photograph. Open the picture in a picture editor (this could be Powerpoint, Microsoft picture gallery or a free download like the GIMP if you do not have photo editing software). Stretch the photograph out horizontally so it is 1.5 times longer than the original. Save and upload.
Your room is grainy because it needs more light. To fix this,we have to cheat and add windows behind the camera or where we will not see them.Even it might be a real floorplan of a room that exist, we cant really design it as it is without a bit of cheating, specially about lighting.This is why when you opened my design ''breakfast nook'' you could see windows on every walls. When you use blinds or curtains, it hides part of the sunlight too.Dont worry about doing exactly the real room (if it exist) the way you put the camera will hide things behind it so nobody will see them. (windows)
- not enough light coming into the room: solution: add windows behind the camera
- using curtains or blinds: Solution: as above add more windows
- Camera touching a wall: Solution: Move the camera off all walls
- the direction the windows are facing on the planner - light comes from the top left so if windows are facing a different direction the lighting will be compromised
I suggest that you browse through ''discover''' at the top of the page and find an outside design you like, open it to see how it has been done.
If you cant do that it means there is something wrong. Post again here and we can try other things.
why does the paint or wood or anything else can't be shown in floor or added
please give me solution and thanx ^__^
Pinkie Pie is dark because you have covered the windows with a mural - check out page 11 of the manual *at the top of the forum) to see how to make a scene but not using a mural.
Brown Room is dark because you have the camera touching the wall.
Bluebed is dark because you have three tiny windows on the right side of the room - maximum lights comes form the top and left of the planner
You have some nice ideas - keep practising with the planner to find out how it all works and you will be showcasing great rooms.
I have a modular "IKEA" kitchen. I used a "kitchen island since they best represented my counters. the problem is that I cannot find a single kitchen sink that will sit showing on top. they all disappear. the closest i got was one that left the faucet fixtures showing. i ended up using grey place mats and a bathroom faucet to represent the sink (yuk - but better than none) any idea to get around this?
You are right.There are not many kitchen sinks to add over a counter. What I usually do is find a bathroom sink with vanity of the right height and slide it under the counter or a sink hanging on a wall and do the same.But I have to adjust the camera angle so we dont see too deep inside the sink because we will see the counter.(since there is no hole for the sink) As you said, it is a way to get around it!
might look out of place might look out of place... I will set my 2 or 3 best renders to public... they aren't done for any contest it is ppretty much how my house looks in life so try not to wiince since they aren't contest worthy. i just love seeing my little kitchen and other rooms when they show up in my email all rendered. It is like having a little dollhouse version of my home to play with. One render was a glitch in my office where an accidental picture of my cat was made into a wall mural when i removed it it left the pic inside the window frame instead so it looks like a giant cat is peering in a dollhouse., funny.
Thanks for the tips I will try them tomorrow while i am at work. Let me know what you think I had to work hard to line up the counters and over head cabinets over lapping nicely so it didn't look weird it took me quite awhile since i am still learning to work with the program.
A tip to find interesting things in the data base though it won't give you the results you think it would . Enter one letter of the alphabet in "search" it is amazing all the stuff I found. I started with "A" and just scrolled through to see all the things i had no idea were there!
On your profile you have a fist go at a garden - suggest you don't make it inside a room - learn to "Apply Scenery" and make the garden outside a room or even on an empty planner grid. The lighting will look more natural and so will the scenery with no hard edge round the sky.
My favourite random search is not letters - that can still bring up a huge range but random words - and the less connected with furniture and interiors the better!
I experiment some as well to see how renders turn out with different effects and ranges of lighting. so my page looks disorganized for now. this all started out as a single room endeavor to find a better layout for my home office and it just got addicting and next thing i knew i was doing my whole home. mostly to just better utilize space but I had so much fun picking out furniture and fixtures that it is taking on a life of it's own. I will try the random search the way you suggested it should yield some really interesting results. The data base is much much larger than i imagined initially. At first i was disappointed i thought there was a limited number of items to work with but am finding that is not so at all. Such fun!
the reason why the scene looks so unnatural is because it is a windows desktop and a digital embellished picture. i just didn't have time to find a real scenery to use but wanted the look of something other than the black matte background. soon i will have a variety of pictures of outdoor areas to use all sized nicely. Like i said at first i was attempting to reorganize my house now i am a full blown interior design junkie.
When I want to leave a space open like a front yard let's say... i have been drawing walls which i apply: architecture - door - opening :and make it the same width and height as the wall i just drew. Am i to understand that you can apply scenery to an open grid?
I guess I really need to crack the manual so i know what i am doing instead of winging it so much. since i am going to get into this I should do it right. I've been so busy redecorating my house I never stopped to read the instructions. it is a very user friendly interface.
You can make a porch the way you have described OR you could make a porch by adding beams/architrave/mirror ceiling and pillars along with decking and railings OR by using the Meier Balcony OR with clever use of one of the summerhouses or gazebos OR ... OR ... they will all give you very different looks but generally an outdoor scene with a ceiling doesn't work so well.
The ceiling hole is well worth mastering - but you are right to try and get to grips with understanding the programme first. It is not difficult to make the hole but if you don't understand the workings then it is easy to find you filled it in by mistake and you cannot get it back.
Have you been adjusting the light slider in your rooms? if so we suggest you leave it in neutral and use windows behind the camera to add or reduce the light for good renders - having said that apparently there are some strange renders coming out at the moment because of some testing of a new render server.
Any suggestions would be appreciated....... I think the waterwalls in all the corners looked kinda neat though I don't know if anyone else appreciated it.Stilla work in progress. much fun!! also need a pedestal that won't take up the entire pool!!
For a small pedestal look in the architecture tab under staircases and there is a singe step which might do. Alternatively look at some coffee tables and you might find one that suits; or there are some mirrored plinths that you could use
Adding a view page 11
I would recommend starting again rather than deleting the room.
Also how come when I try to get the dulux color extractor it says too busy try back later?
I haven't tried the Dulux colour extractor recently so not sure if this is a glitch
I haven't seen the room history option for a while now so it may have been withdrawn on more recent rooms.
You can find a half wall in the architecture section.
A tip: when you put furniture against a wall push it a little further into the wall otherwise you get a gap.
To get an idea how other people make their designs check them out by clicking on remix. :)
My tv won't drop to the table.. it stays on top of the first shelf..
What can i do ? :)
Check though that you have deleted any previous searches and you are searching the entire catalogue. If you have any previous searches in the search box there is a little x when you hover to delete and there may be a previous search listed in a yellow box just underneath the search bar - again it has a little x to allow you to delete it.
I'm so new... so green. Does anyone know if we'll be able to eventually import 3d objects? Google has a nice 3d warehouse. :)
Thank you for any assistance that you can provide,
You will not be able to delete any already entered in contests though.
If you need to delete several rooms at the same time there is an easier way:
+ Open the 3D planner tool
+ Select "Your 3d rooms" at the top right and then you will get a page of thumbnails
+ Hover over each thumbnail you want to delete and you will see a delete option
+ Wait for the screen to reset before deleting another
Walls disappear when they are not joined together - we sometimes refer to these as "floating walls" or "stub walls", This is a result of a bug in the programme but it is a bug that is very useful in some situations.
I see you have managed to get a room with walls but now the floor is 'messed up' - this happens when you make a complex floor layout and add rooms in a particular way which confuses the programme. This can be avoided but not usually corrected.
I recommend working through the manual (set at the top of the forum) with a simple room to get to know the programme. Then look in the forum for "S is for ...." and "T is for ... Tips, Tricks and Tutorials" - finally this thread will help you avoid the floor problem http://roomstyler.com/forum/discussions/6395 BUT please learn the basic techniques first to reduce the frustration for you.
Look on the architecture tab for the items called "Sloped ceiling" or some of the staircases have a white slope on the reverse so they can be used to make a sloping ceiling
For a beach do a search for some fo the following to make sand - "silkies" (there are some beige rugs); sheepskin rugs can be used for sand or for the froth at the edge of the waves - the mohair blanket can be mixed into to give texture for that area too.
Look at thinks like cork bath mats, rugs or bath mats with stones or pebbles ... I am sure others can chime in with item suggestions. If you scroll through some of my designs you will find quite a few beaches - feel free to open them and play around to see how it is done. Another designer who I remember doing beaches is Bibiche and although not a beach look on starsector's profile for the house with a stream running through the snow
Remember that just because a picture is available online does not mean you are allowed to use it - and you are responsible for checking copyright before using it.
Alternatively (a tip which if I remember correctly was shared origianlly by Theadora) draw a single line of wall outside your room and then move it to be just inside your room wall. Add the TV to the single wall (if it goes to the wrong side of that wall click on the ends of the single wall in turn and drag each one to turn the wall to face the other way) The single wall will magically disappear when you render and the TV will appear to be on the wall you wanted it on.
@ Yham, It looks like you have moved, deleted and re-drawn a lot of walls. This will give you problems with floors, ceilings and walls. Besides asking questions in the Forum it might also help you to read Roomstyler's Manual located at the top of the Forum.
L = 15 degrees left (so six clicks on the key turns the object 90 degrees)
R = 15 degrees right
then if you use the following key combinations:
SHIFT+L (or R) the item rotates in 5 degree steps)
Workrounds: If the shelf doesn't have a back (you can see the wall behind it) search for wall mounted items and position them on the wall to look like they sit on the shelf OR read this which I have copied from further up the thread rto help you
"It brings our designs to life to add items to shelving - but the programme limits some objects to not supporting others - how do we PUT A VASE ON A FLOATING SHELF OR BOOKS IN A BOOKCASE? This tutorial shows the basics of cheating with a glass table and the "Pedestal" items from the Architecture Tab. http://u.mydeco3d.com/media/data/rooms/images/wvhnlyxxmuoh2d6n.jpg "
(1) Your room isn't rendered - did you just use "save" instead of "save as"? if so then you do not get the High Photo Quality render (that would give you a milky white background instead of the dark grey)
(2) You need to "Apply Scenery" - take a look at the manual (up at the top of the forum) for that the technique to use a photograph to make a scene.
(3) Once you use "save as" and render with the photo as a background you are ready to add items into the garden/yard - you may need to add some kind of ground cover (paving or decking or a rug that looks like these) otherwise items like plants will float.
The entire office floor is grey carpeted but the upper floor for small lobby and manager desks look somehow weird because it's brightly white.
Million thanks in advance for your great advise :)
Thank you for your kind advise. Aha, so I can use some rugs, good to know! :)
In this case, I will do searching by myself which type of rugs I can apply to the pedestal, no need to give me the list :) I know you are very very very kind by putting extra effort on answering my question but this is not urgent and not that important so I will discover by myself the suit rug types. Once again, many thanks for your great advise, Nonehpets! Good luck for your great upcoming designs and thank you for contributing massive helps to this community, especially to a moron newbie like me, jejeje... :) :) :) :)
Take a look in this room - open it up to explore the left hand side of the planner (the room and the rugs to the right don't include any that work it was just a place I was playing) - http://roomstyler.com/users/55634/rooms/8496935 - not all of the items are rugs but there are place mats which can be duplicated and used to cover a pedestal; a deck tile, some table runners and then there is a stone plinth which carefully placed and duplicated works as long as you are not showing the edge of the pedestal. Along side these demo pedestals are the two main rug design that sit on the pedestal items - the pebble one is useful in outdoor designs and especially to disguise a pedestal raising water plane level.
Thank you for your great advise and sample, indeed very helpful for me. I will try to use one of them and see if it will make sense in terms of color mix-matching with the carpets and surrounding environment, furniture etc (because if I'm not wrong, these rugs and some other helpful items work only on the top of the pedestal instead of covering or if I can say 'coloring' the whole pedestal)
Thank you once again, Nonehpets! :) :) :)
Check under the search box that you don't already have a keyword in a yellow box - if you do then delete that with the small cross at the end of the box and try the search again
Next Apply Scenery (look at the manual at the top of the forum for the way to do this)
Finally I (and many others here) do not recommend adjusting the light slider (found when you use "Take a photo") because the results are not very controllable.
Countrymusic - how many items come up in the list when you click on the category bathrooms? I see over 2000 with lots of baths and showers/shower components in the mix including some new ones I haven't seen before. If you are not see over 2000 in that list then you maybe should contact the Roomstyler team using the "contact us" option at the foot of any page. Give them a link to your room and tell them about the browser and OS you are using
Les secondes défilent dans le rendu mais pas d'images
merci de m'indiquer comment résoudre ce problème
If you have specific questions (this thread and the manual at the top of the forum) do contain many answers already please do ask them and there is usually someone with knowledge around to respond within a few hours
Although this looks great it is difficult to then make it look like any furniture is sitting on that raised floor.
Looking at your profile I would recommend that you learn the basics first before you try advanced techniques like this one - although it might seem to be too slow to learn later on you will find the benefit. Start with the manual (at the top of the forum) and when you fully understand that start trying the tips and tricks in this thread which will help you build on the foundations and by then you will start to be able to dismantle a room like the one you have shown and understand how to replicate.
People are easy - type "people" in the search box at the top of the catalogue or type "alberto" to get the Roomstyler tee-shirted guy
I'm unable to move anything, like someone else above have stated in both Chrome and Microsoft Edge.
But it works in Internet Explorer.
1. making curved and sloped handrails, for white stairs especially.
2. making curved wall or adding other shapes of curved and sloped walls
3. making opening wall. I think this option would be good if someone wants to have the interior wall in one color, and the exterior one in other color or something else. It doesn`t look good, if I have to add two windows or doors in the same place, one to the exterior wall, and one to the interior wall. This is my opinion. Any way, I`ll understand if some things can`t be done now, if at all. I don`t expect you to do it right now, That are only my suggestions,
One more thing. I still don`t know how to make another floor or how to make it seem to be a second floor especially, when I want the camera look upwards, not downwards. If somebody let me copy some ideas with mezzanine, just to learn i`ll be grateful to them.
I don`t know if my english is still good to be well understand, I hope you have understood what I wanted to propose. Greetings
Trying to remove floor texture (that was automatically fill up) after deleting walls and couldn't do it(
And where I can find ruler tool?
Secondly, use "save as" to render your room even when the camera is counting down - the room will save and usually render even when the counter is stopping the preview. There were also some posts this week in the forum where Roomstyler provided a secure browser address starting https:// - which seemed to be solving some problems
Thank you in advance.
I am facing problem in some of the thread.
Some links are really very helpful.
But some link are not working.
1) What is the link to the tutorial series? I can't seem to find that.
2) I see in some of the beautiful designs everyone is doing that there are items like fireplaces, artwork, etc. that I do not see available in the current selection of products. Is that just because the products change periodically or is there somewhere to look for more or can you somehow add products?
3) How in the world do you do a finish for one wall and then another wall in a different color or material? I just see that moving the wall element you want over to either WALLS or CEILING. I am not seeing where to apply it to only that particular wall?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. There are some really talented people on this site. ;)
Appreciate it . . . . thanks so much.
We can sometimes get an item made by the Tech team, specifically 'TV Renders' who is the 3D modeler, but he is extremely busy with projects and cannot honor all requests: https://roomstyler.com/forum/discussions/7290
Here are a couple of great examples -
I have seen a lot of nice ways to do it but to actually have a second floor is not possible in the program as it is now . . Hope that helps.

daniellabloemberg, you'd have to delete the floor in order to delete the ceiling, but if you want to keep the floor, you can extend the walls to a very high height.
How can I add furniture that isn't in the gallery?
You cannot do that yourself. There is a thread in the forum for member suggestions for new items - post an image of what you are looking for there
Is there a way to add big window sills? I want to create a room that has big window sills. There's 3 different windows in that room and the window sills are all different sizes. Is there a way to do that?
hello, working on DMLights, impossible to upload any image (JPEG nor PNG) in order to apply scenary.
does any one have the same problem?
I have deleted my floor and now it will not let me add flooring? What to do? it shows up on the 3d as no floor and no walls...yikes!
new user - trying to change size of my room but it moves the whole room. i move mouse over wall and click and drag but whole thing moves .. suggestions?
PippyLStocking delete any wall and redraw it - this should replace the floor.
sbradley9451 try using a different browser - there are some known issues between certain browsers and certain operating systems. If that makes no difference are you using a trackpad on a laptop? for some this take a little bit of practice to grab the wall accurately.
All finishes (wallpapers, wood etc) are now sorted by date, with the latest addictions on top
It`s a very good idea, it`s clear which material is new, thank you very much.
This is my first day trying to use "RoomStyler". Sorry for not already knowing how to use it, but I am a beginner. Thus I am clueless!
I cant find ANY way to get a kitchen started. I know I can save a simple room as type kitchen, but there are no kitchen related objects in the default view. I can however see livingroom furniture and gardening objects.
I know there is a way to do this, and I have been through the "user manual" which covers some basics. Well what if you wanted to create a room that isnt just a bunch of blank walls and windows.
There really is no explanation, but lots of examples of beautiful kitchens that others have done without even an attempt at a step-by-step set of instructions.
Firstly - lower the height of your camera so you see the room.
Secondly there are many kitchen items - there are some on the "new "tab and then look on the item catalogues fo the kitchen category
TV Renders said "All finishes (wallpapers, wood etc) are now sorted by date, with the latest addictions on top"
lol, you're right! It is an addiction!
That's very helpful to have new textures on top. But I think it would have been better to post that info on a new forum thread, rather than buried on this one, thanks!
the 3d picture view is working for me, I cant see my room is 3d (or I don't know how) I just need help.
Hi, I need help with putting things on te wall, like a floating shelf. With all my walls it works except one. With this wall it places the floating shelf outside the room instead off inside the wall. How can I fix this? Thanks
Try deleting that wall and then redrawing it making sure it connects fully at both ends. This is described multiple times in the forum ... search for keywords "stub wall" "invisible wall" think either of those will bring up tips to fix this plus if your scroll up this thread there will be tips about it too.
Hi, this actually my first time actually trying this, and I was wondering if there is a way for you to delete all of the furnitures at once. I made a mistake and didn't save the blueprint separately, and I have two save files. I just want the no furniture version of the blueprint. Is there a way I could do this?
How do I get wood off the walls and ceiling?
With an attitude like that you're lucky to get an answer!
Answer: To change wall/ceiling apply another texture like paint, etc. over top.
Read the Roomstyler Manual at the top of the Forum page to learn how to make a design.
Sorry you can only delete individual items.
@Stefan van O.
Sorry, you can't make multiple stories. Some members have made designs hat look like they have. You can Remix their design and take it apart to find out how they did that.
Thank you David for putting this thread back up.
I know that some of the tips and tricks are now old and out dated. I see that people are coming and asking questions on a thread that was never intended for that purpose but I and other experienced community minded members have continued trying to answer those questions when we can.
This was created as a resource when we did not have one from the original owners and while the Roomstyler Team were moving in and getting their feet under our table. It was a gift to the community to fill a gap, created with love and thought. I did not ask for it to be a pinned post - that was Roomstyler's decision ... but here is the thing twice now I have had to ask for it to be unspammed and opened again. PLEASE if you are peeved at not getting speedy response go and add your own question in the forum (it is easy to do ) and that allows this resource to remain available to others who are happy to wait or search through to find their answers.
Theadora thank you for those last few answers before it was spammed again. :D
I don't know if this has already been asked but does anyone know how to make a circular room? I have had a play around, and it seems impossible. Am I just missing a button?
You are very rude you know that right?
SapphireMouse - you can make almost circular rooms and I am sure this is covered above (1) draw your own walls to make a circular room out of short sections of walls; but this can be tricky so alternative is drag a square room onto the planner and then successively split the walls and move the joins outwards in equal steps.
Finally you can give the impression of a circular room using the curved wall sections in the Architecture section. Have a play with these techniques and have fun.
https://roomstyler.com/users/oliviastauffer2424 as the saying goes "it takes one to know one" you are the one being rude and disrespectful of those who voluntarily answer questions in this community forum. The majority of answers here are not from paid staff but from those of us who enjoy the free programme and have fun using it and sharing our knowledge.
Of course if you are so expert at not being rude feel free to start your own helpful forum threads.
Thank you very much! Sorry for replying back so late...
Can someone explain to me how I can put landscapes out of the room? thanks!!!!
Can someone explain to me how can I put landscapes out of the room?
Look at the manual at the top of the forum - there is a whole section on Applying scenery using photographs
How do you make the closet door slide to put you clothes in the closet?
i split my wall and didn't notice , how can I make them become one again ?
Miica Uemura - delete the two sections of wall and then draw the wall in again - being careful to join it at both ends to the other walls.
