    For interior design, I recommend using the SketchUp Tree tool. You can drag your room layout into SketchUp and then turn it into a sketchup blueprint. One way to learn Sketchup fast (while enjoying the process) is to do some of these exercises here on that let you build objects that are useful in interior design, for instance this drawers exercise. The other way would be to simply read through this article with images from Anna Guest-Jelley's house tour and study each step as you go (or just download the files as they're self explanatory).

    This tutorial will teach you how to import your own model into SketchUp by first creating a simple 3D model in Google Blocks. SketchUp is an easy-to-learn, 3D modelling tool that everyone can use. Whether you’re new to this space or seeking a powerful design tool for your business, Sketchup makes it possible. You'll be able to bring any idea from the ground up with just four very simple tools: lines, segments, circles and rectangles. As great as all that sounds there's no denying the design process often feels cumbersome and time consuming.

    SketchUp is a popular 3D modeling software that I used in my professional design work for about 7 years. Sketchup is much simpler than other more complex programs such as Autodesk Revit or Maya, but it has all the necessary components to create floor plans and architectural renderings like these. To learn how to use sketchup fast, start with the basics and explore from there; if you are new to CAD modeling or just starting out, try this great tutorial by Nathan Penlington.

    The best way to learn SketchUp is with a guide, and there are some great tutorials on YouTube. They're very detailed and each video usually takes you through the process step-by-step. The first one I would recommend is this one from Animal Alpha:
    How to Draw a House in Sketchup - YouTube
    This video breaks down how to draw the basic sections of an interior design sketch (i.e., room walls, doors, windows). It starts by showing how to start a new model and create tree polygons which form boxes that will serve as railings around balconies for sitting or sleeping under.

    SketchUp is a free 3D modelling program. TechShop offers something like 1000 hours of classes to help with learning interior design. SketchUp is a free 3D modelling program. TechShop offers something like 1000 hours of classes to help with learning, some sketch-up oriented and some broader (make-a-throne, makerspace for real estate models). I learned using the "complete guide" book and I'm not an expert now by any means but can solve 90%+ of my needs using just that (plus following tutorials) so recommend starting there.
