Virtual and Augmented Reality is the Hottest Interior Design Tools

Interior DesignInterior design companies from all areas of the industry are now using virtual reality in their standard operating procedures. The integrated virtual technology is said to decrease the overall production cost and efficiency of planning out designs — much more effective than previous cutting-edge 3-dimensional models.

Based on the statements of top design companies such as Decorilla, the advantage of using a virtual reality for interior and architectural design can be as simple as showcasing the floor plan or better yet the whole direction of a particular room.

The Unprecedented Amalgamation of the Virtual Technology

The quality of 3D rendered are excellent, however, the customers can’t really feel what it’s like to be in the actual room said Wilk, co-founder of Decorilla.

Thanks to the ease of access and in-depth capability of virtual glasses prospective clients can immediately see the actual renderings of their apartments and surrounding properties in front of their eyes.

Dimensional and Spatial Advantages

One of the hardest things in the interior and architectural design industry isn’t in the design or creation process, but the part where a designer tries to convince by guiding them through the idea. Fortunately, with virtual reality, this won’t be a problem anymore.

Via the use of special glasses, the designers can now literally walk the client inside their creations. Other than this, the listed advantages of virtual interior design presentation include the ability to:

  • Freely customize and adjust the original dimension set by a client based on their actual experience
  • Make final selection of selections faster and in a more economical way
  • Avoid unnecessary alterations once the construction commences
  • Visualize the space before moving on to bigger projects

What Other Interior Design Companies are Saying

Julia Dzafic from Havenly used 3D rendering from the firm to help make the interior elements.

I could really get a feel for what it would be like to be inside that room without walking into it or touching or physically seeing anything, which is cool said Dzafic.

Most of the interior agencies and firms today are already developing their own ways to make this technology native to their processing inputs and outputs. Apart from the fact that it’s a great tool for client satisfaction, it’s also an exciting and effective way for design companies to be in the zone of their craft.

Another Use for Interior Design and Virtual Reality

There is also an augmented reality type of technology for mobile applications, which indirectly helps in the staging of interior designing.

Inspired by the augmented reality technology of Phab2 Pro from Lenovo, iStaging is an Android and iOS device-compatible app that enables users to quickly sort out and rearrange their furniture without breaking a sweat.

The app uses smartphone cameras to give life to augmented pieces in which the users can freely use to plot out where a specific item will go.
