Technology has seeped in through practically every area imaginable. We’ve seen it improving the field of education, communication processes, the marketing industry, the world of business, and the gambling niche you name it!
The interior design industry is no exception. In fact, to be conversant in this area, you needn’t really be an interior designer. What you do need, however, is to keep yourself abreast with the latest trends. Notwithstanding, keeping up with the latest trends isn’t enough, because living in a technological world means understanding how decor needn’t be pigeonholed into your traditional DIY project. Just take a look at storyboards.io, they have not only designed a fantastic product but have done so using top-notch technology. All this while providing an interactive experience for customers to create their own wall tiles.
What role does technology play in this example? Simple. When buyers choose to purchase the sticky wall tiles offered by this particular vendor, they can use digital tools that provide them with an immersive, personalized experience and full control over the end product. How so? Let us explain better.
This company’s product can be bought online, and their platform allows you to choose the number of tiles you’d like to order and the specific image you’d like to have on each tile. It will then provide real-time feedback about the uploaded pictures (for instance, ‘image has poor resolution’), and it will also allow you to change or edit the images, add other images to your wall tile, or remove any unwanted ones as you deem fit. In this way, prior to making your order, you would know exactly how your wall tile will look once you hang the tiles at home, thus preventing any unpleasant surprises. Still, this company offers a 100% refund to anyone who isn’t happy with the delivered product, no questions asked.
This is simply one example of the many vendors out there who are leveraging the power of technology to offer their clients optimal service. Let us explore three other technological tools that can help you in your project of designing or revamping a room.
These apps are there to help you visualize how a particular piece of furniture will look in the space you intend to place it in. The way it works, you simply take a picture of the particular room you have in mind, superimpose the piece of furniture in your desired spot and – voilà! – you have it right in front of you, and you can tell whether it will look the way you imagined it. Then you’d be able to make the necessary adjustments accordingly. This is a brilliant tool to experiment with different positions, colors, sizes and materials until you find that sweet spot that simply does the trick!
A planner tool works in a similar way to the tool just mentioned. The only difference is that it’s not intended to use a visual of your personal room. Instead, it simply aims at giving you an idea of how a particular layout will look like, using its own template. Take, for example, a kitchen planner tool. This will allow you to explore different cupboard layouts until you end up with the kind of aesthetic you want to portray. Such tools can even project tiny details to give you an idea of how for instance, the positioning of the chairs will look like and what effect different lighting will have; and you can even add little accessories to your virtual kitchen to have a better picture of the kind of vibe it will emit.
Virtual Room Painter Tools
A virtual room painter tool is designed to visualize how a particular color will look on your walls. By taking into account the different characteristics of your room (such as lighting conditions, shadows etc.), it will provide you with a realistic projection of the appearance of a specific hue or a combination of hues in your desired room. This is a priceless tool because it allows you to test out colors and explore different palettes without even having to visit a paint store! You can keep experimenting with different tones and accents until the final color scheme matches the kind of ambiance you’d like your room to have.
