Comprehending the work of your interior design team isn’t entirely reliant upon your understanding technical drawings.  Clever computer programs in the hands of skilled designers create the kind of photorealistic images that Rooms-Service boutique hotel clients have come to expect.  But even with a top quality visual it’s sometimes difficult to visualize the size of an object in-situ. 

My advice is to look no further than the morning paper.  Newspaper is an easy material to layer and layout in the exact position and external dimensions of proposed furniture.   Unlike the usually used small squares of masking tape the density of print on a newspaper also creates the illusion of mass.  This is particularly helpful in illustrating the effect of larger items such as reception desks.
