Presentation Features


2020 Design Live is the only software in the industry to use our proprietary rendering engine, EZ Render. No more adding and adjusting lighting to get a realistic rendering. EZ Render automatically applies and calibrates the highest-quality lighting and true material finishes in a fraction of the time. That may sound great, but words don’t do this feature justice. See some of our favorite photo-realistic renderings below or check out this gallery of award-winning renderings made with 2020 Design Live.

Presentation Features

In addition to EZ Render, 2020 Design Live will boost your presentations to the next level through:
  • Stunning visuals with the right lighting effects and realistic textures.
  • Fully immersive views with our 360° Panorama Multi-point feature.
  • Unique collaboration and sharing options.
  • More post-processing effects with new filters.

Let your clients explore their future space through a 3D panoramic experience or immerse them even further in your designs through Virtual Reality glasses. With the 360 Panorama Multi-point feature, you can display your designs from multiple perspectives.

2020 Design Live also makes sharing easy. Collaborate in real-time with your clients through the Live Share feature. And once they’re happy with the results, they’ll be able to post their 360 panoramic designs to social media to share with their friends.

Design Features


There’s nothing like 2020 Design Live when it comes to design features.

Through our interface, you can draw walls, windows, cabinets and ceilings with ease. And our smart design wizards are always there to help you place items like toekicks, moldings, doors and windows. You can even customize surface materials.

But what really sets our design features apart is the way in which 2020 Design Live allows you to try multiple designs quickly and generate perspective views automatically — right from the plan. That means you can print plans with detailed dimensions and labels, ensuring you’re always on the same page as your installers and subcontractors.

Here are some of the other ways 2020 Design Live helps bring your ideas to life:
  • Generate detailed elevations and represent multiple walls in a single elevation.
  • Use the Countertop Wizard to automatically add countertops to cabinets and cutouts for sinks and faucets.
  • Make your designs appear as realistic as possible by easily importing surface textures from your vendors or choosing from our library of textures from the industry leaders.
  • Increase efficiency while dimensioning a floor plan or elevations through our multiple dimension tool.
  • Once you’re happy with a design, save your favorite elements in the Idea Center library so that you can access that perfect kitchen island in your next plan.

2020 Closet


With all the unique requirements of the home storage design market — from the irregular shape of spaces to trying to fit components into defined areas — closets can be one of the most challenging aspects of home design. It doesn’t have to be that way, though.

2020 Closet, only available as part of 2020 Design Live, allows you to design closets and home storage systems quickly and accurately with software tailored to meet specific spatial demands. Easy to learn and use, 2020 Closet lets you drag and drop pre-configured items onto a floor plan, and then mold the set of components to fit even the most irregular storage areas.

The best feature I have come across is being able to change colors of cabinets without having multiple catalogs downloaded and installed! I have been known to have to use up to 4 catalogs in one drawing. This should help save me a lot of time when clients are asking for changes.

I love that there are easy ways to change colors on multiple things and edit multiple items dimensions at the same time. It’s also easy to maneuver lighting and the sun effect.

I use the 2020 Cloud Decorative Items catalog all the time. Its ease of use is the best part about it. The items capture all the industry trends and make it easy to put customer presentations together.
