The world of interior design has undoubtedly gone through an upheaval over the past couple of years ever since the introduction of interior design software into the industry.
While we started one or two tools that were only able to come up with a basic floor plan at the most, today we have far better and more complex tools at our disposal, ones that can render stunning interior landscapes and even present the entire view in virtual reality?
Yet despite the software’s overwhelming functionality, it would seem some people are still on the fence about whether or not they should use such software.
Are you one of those who can’t make up their minds too? Well, here are three reasons why you should use interior designing software:
A quick and easy preview
Interior designing software strives to replace the need for interior displays in real life. Instead of renting out a showroom to display your best furniture, all an interior design company needs is to carry a tablet PC around and use the software to render stunning previews to potential customers.
These previews can easily be ported on to brochures, saving the extra cost of hiring a potential photographer. Furniture no longer need be kept out in the open and can be stored safely in warehouses until a customer selects the item they want once they approve the preview they see on the software.
Almost every customer who goes interior shopping will want to visualize what the item they want to will look like inside their home and will want to try a dozen or so styles before settling on one they like.
Before interior design software, this process was lengthy, time-consuming and frankly a pain in the neck. Now, all it takes is a couple of clicks, and you can quickly move around objects in a virtual interior, adjust the lighting to the desired level, and add or remove any decorations or items in the room.
Take kitchen design software for example: would you slightly move around a heavy stove just so that your customer can see what it looks like in different corners of the room, or would you just let them play around with the positioning on software until they’re satisfied?
Previews and flexibility aren’t everything interior design software has going for it; efficiency is a big plus too. The software automatically keeps track of any items added to the room, and it takes only the push of a button to obtain a VERY accurate estimate of the room cost.
This tool is especially important for shoppers on a budget (so basically everyone) who can easily design the best interior within their budget constraints and save time doing so.
