    Before learning anything about the tools, start by understanding how to read a space. If it's already been designed and you're just looking for inspiration, draw an outline of the space and then sketch in some furniture. Then think about what is important to include in your design: function (a place for everything), lighting, volume, different textures or colors. Be sure to consider room size when determining pieces like couches or sofas-too big? Too small? How will they fit in this environment? Finally, take into consideration what your end goal might be - do you want people to gather around the coffee table, do you want a bedroom that feels open with lots of airy light coming through windows.

    There are many great programs available for beginners who want to start learning how to use a computer for interior design. Here are two of the most popular ones. Adobe Photoshop is definitely the easiest way to learn, as it's enough like Microsoft Paint that people familiar with Paint can start using it immediately The tutorials on YouTube and other video sites are readily available to teach anything from basic tools, typography, and image editing within this program. This program also has versions of itself that were tailored specifically for designing web pages and designing 3d objects in space or adding animations to videos.

    Unlike other design software like AutoCAD or SketchUp, Revit is a huge program that you cannot just pick up and use. It takes years to become well-versed in it but there are many tutorials online that may get you started. A good place to start would be learning the fundamentals of how an interior works and what kind of principles are applied when designing different spaces. You should also research through the internet about important components in an interior design, like light sources, high ceilings, furniture placement etc as they can differ depending on the space type. Once you feel comfortable with those basics, you'll want to start working on your understanding of shapes by doing basic math problems.

    The best way to learn design software is by teaching it to yourself. This means approaching the program as a complete novice, trying out every tool available (or even just those tools that look interesting to you), and then assigning them some kind of functional or "learning" meaning. You should be able to describe how each one works and why you think it's useful, otherwise your learning won't stick. It will also mean having an open mind about all shapes of functionality not just what the designers in movies are using, but also about tech tools like image editing.

    The first step is to find the right software for your needs. There are a number of different options, including free/trial versions, small programs, and large suites. As you browse through prices and features, you'll have to decide what's really important to you for example if time is of the essence or not.

    This depends in part on the software you're using, but as a rule of thumb, there are four basic steps to learning it. The first step is to get used to the interface (for example Sketchup). The second step is to search for videos or tutorials that can teach specific tasks (e.g. UV mapping) and watch them over and over until you slowly start remembering how to do them yourself without having someone else telling you what buttons to press. Next time when something pops up that you don't know how/why it works, instead of clicking away from it in frustration go ahead an click every single option possible until one of those options becomes clear.
