Imagine “stepping foot” into your dream interior even if it doesn’t exist yet. Looking up, you spot a gorgeous new chandelier that instantly transforms your room. To the right, a loveseat sits perfectly against a new wall. You can easily spot mistakes before they happen, and it saves a lot of time.
Interior design in virtual reality does this. Joining other large companies like Google, Facebook, and Samsung that see the immense potential of this technology, Decorilla online interior design service aims to enhance customer experiences by bringing interior design dreams to life!
The new interior design virtual reality app, is the best way of previewing a design as it allows you to look around your new space before the design has been executed. The result is confidence in design and purchasing decisions and a lot of saved time! To get your VR project started or inquire about a partnership contact us at email@example.com
Taking a closer look, we sat down with Decorilla partner, Alper Guler of AR Pandora, to chat about the future of virtual reality and how VR in interior design is already helping designers and clients.
Q: It’s said that 2016 is the year VR is emerging in mainstream culture. What are the areas you feel people will experience most impact in their daily lives from its use?
A: Companies like Google, Microsoft, Facebook (Oculus), HTC, Playstation and many more are investing in VR technologies. In 2015 we have seen a great improvement on hardware providers. Entry level for VR is the Google Cardboard with prices $10-$30 and companies like Go4D, Homido developed a better looking and better lens models of Google Cardboard alike, products for $25 – $50. I think this segment will be the main stream for viewing VR for upcoming three years. On top of these models, Samsung has released their Gear VR Product which works with Samsung Phones for $99 which offers really good VR experience. In 2016 we will see upcoming products from Oculus and HTC Vive and Playstation, but with their price tags over $599 these products will target game enthusiastic and business solutions.
I think people will use VR to visit places they have never been to, just by sitting in their sofa. Gaming will be huge with VR. Social media will be in a whole different level, we will have avatars and meet in virtual rooms. Regarding music and movies, Madonna will give a concert to whole world and you will be able to buy tickets on stage and instead of selling 50,000 tickets, they can sell millions. Also in education and training, VR will be one of the daily usage. Architecture and interior design presentations will evolve with VR. Instead of looking some pictures of your future space, you will be able to imagine the whole area.
Q: Our clients love the fact our projects include 3D renderings to help them visualize their space. How does VR for interior design enhance the experience?
A: Today the problem with interior design presentations is interior designers usually send 2D renderings of their 3D projects to their clients. There is no easy way of presenting 3D models to your client, but with the Decorilla VR application there are three innovative viewing tools for customers and designers; clients can see a 3D dollhouse view of their future space where they can zoom and rotate. Secondly, they can use 360 renders using the gyro function of their mobile device. This feels like you are sitting in your future room and looking around. Finally, they use the google cardboard view to really feel like they are in that actual space.
Decorilla’s focus on technology makes beautifully designed spaces available and affordable to everyone. The company has always provided interior design customers with a 3D model of their spaces to better visualize what rooms will look like. Thus, bringing that into a virtual reality world was a natural next step.
