Virtual Reality: the next frontier in Interior Design

Date: Jun 20

The gradual inclusion of Virtual Reality (VR) in the designing and rendering mainstream creates immense opportunities for 3D interior design rendering experts. Virtual reality is literally breaking into the mainstream these days. Things we used to see only in sci-fi flicks are becoming a reality with each day passing. Samsung and many other technology giants have already come up with miniature VR machines for their consumers. While the road is definitely long and dusty, VR has started to show signs of progress. There are reasons for us to believe that VR for interior designers will completely change the course of 3D interior design rendering techniques in the near future. Why do we believe so? We are going to explain it now.

What is Virtual Reality?

Virtual Reality is a form of media that can send you from the present reality to a virtual one. You need to wear a headset, with a pair of goggles attached to it. This transforms your eyes to another world. This experience is not anything new, except for the fact that VR is now being used in different fields, with 3D interior design rendering being one of them.

VR for interior designers

How Can the Architectural Design and Construction Sectors Benefit?

We anticipate that VR for interior designers will soon become a powerful tool for the industry we belong to – the 3D interior design industry.

While the application of VR in 3D architectural rendering is still in a nascent stage, the technology is surely making inroads into the world of architectural rendering.

What Are the Benefits of VR for Interior Designers?

“If your grandpa doesn’t understand what he is looking at, you have probably failed” – this is what we tell our rendering trainees for motivating them. It is highly likely that the people who are seeing your architectural design have no idea how a triangular composition can be analysed from a two-point perspective. If you are an interior designer, you will probably want to show your prospective design to your client who would easily ‘get’ the design. In other words, interior designs are not just ‘cool’ designs.

Therefore, if you are eager to explain the merit of your design, you need to show your prospective clients a little more than just a realistic depiction of an interior. Virtual Reality can make your design more intriguing as your potential clients can walk through your design.

VR helps us in producing a powerful and compelling design. Imagine a real estate agent is trying to sell an unconstructed home. Usually, real estate agents use static images to explain interiors. With VR-powered 3D interior design rendering, you can convince your potential clients faster.

Computer-based simulation is the way forward.
