Interior Designers Now Use VR for Their Job

The job of an Interior Designer may seem like an easy one, but that’s not quite right. In fact, the designers of this type are usually geniuses who need to take various things into account in order to make a perfect interior. This is especially difficult when they are making an interior for big objects, such as hotels, theatres, and more.

In the last two decades, interior designers have redefined the way they approach their job. Instead of trying things out in real life, they started using computers and various programs that could help them explore new possibilities. Programs such as 3D Max and other similar pieces of software help them visualize things better. In fact, they even make an entire visual representation of the interior this way.

Why is it important to design interiors on a computer first? Well, there are a lot of new objects being made every day, and one of the ways to showcase your work to potential and existing clients is to use this type of visualization.

VR and Interior Design

This leads us to the latest technology used by interior designers — VR. One of the most interesting uses of it is for VR casinos. People who want to play casino games using the virtual reality equipment are mesmerized by the interior of these virtual buildings. They are all made by skillful interior designers who have made a lot of progress in this aspect.

You probably wonder what one such experience feels like. If you have not had an opportunity to be a part of Virtual Reality, we will briefly explain how to use it and enjoy virtual places made by interior designers.

How to Use VR?

The first thing you need to do is obtain some equipment. If you are a client who wants the services of an interior designer, you shouldn’t worry about equipment as the chances are they already have it.

The equipment consists of VR goggles and a pair of headphones for a completely immersive experience. Naturally, you don’t have to use headphones if you are just going to look at an interior, but some great music can help you experience it better.

Once you put on your goggles, make sure to strap them well so that they are firmly attached to your head. Put the headphones on and get ready for something that will completely change the way you perceive reality.

Once the interior loads, you will notice that you are probably “located” at the center of it. All you have to do is turn your head, and you will notice that you are actually turning inside the virtual space.

Some VR equipment also features a sort of joystick which you can use to point to things inside the virtual space (much like a mouse works for PCs). Many interior designers will also include an option to move inside the virtual space by pressing arrows on the joystick.

A word of warning, though! Trying on a VR set for the first time may cause dizziness. It’s something that your brain and body are not accustomed to. Being in there for a couple of minutes is more than enough to take a good look at the virtual interior. If you want to look at it again, make sure to pause for ten or more minutes before you put your VR set on once again.

Conclusion

To sum up, VR is very entertaining, and one of the most powerful tools for interior designers who will be able to help their clients a lot. VR is actually already in use in a lot of industries, and the gaming industry is the one that makes the most out of it.
