Explore the templates and other features available to homeowners within Design Studio

Updated over a week ago

Design Studio provides an easy and intuitive way for you to see the possibilities of your home. Built specifically for homeowners, Design Studio is an exploratory tool for you to use when you want to better visualize new colors and material options for your renovation projects.

Start with design templates and color palettes, then further customize the look of the walls, roof, trim, windows, and doors!

Templates and color palettes

When you open a 3D model of your Hover job, you will see a left side menu displaying multiple template options.

Selecting a template will immediately apply it to your 3D model, and you will see the the option to choose various color palettes as well. Choosing a different color palette will not change the design template.

Additional customizations

Once you've chosen a design template and color palette you're happy with, you can further refine the design with the other icons shown in the left side menu.

Click the arrows to expand or collapse additional information:


If multiple materials exist on a home (ie, siding and brick), we are aware that you may not intend to apply one material to all the exterior walls at once. Design Studio has the ability to detect if multiple materials exist on the walls and will group them appropriately so you can select exactly which materials and walls you want to re-visualize.

  • Click the Walls icon to see a summary of the grouped materials.

  • Click Edit below the particular material type you would like to change.

You can filter by type, color, brand, or style:
