No More Picture Portfolio Please! VR Revolutionizes Interior Design Industry!
Chohero, an independent interior designer upgraded his business website with a VR kick. He, joining the frontiers, realizes the power of immersion when showcasing designs to clients.
Traditionally, interior designers showcase their creations via picture slideshows, like the one below.
With a simple tech upgrade, now interior designers can do this:
You can also create a virtual tour of the house via interaction hotspots:
Chohero mentioned that this trend started only recently. Now the top designers have all jumped on board. Interior design business is very competitive, and clients care a lot about designer portfolio. It’s a “necessary development,” as VR does a way better job at showcasing than traditional 2D medium:
 It’s engaging. The experience of virtual tour alone excites clients.
 It becomes interactive with virtual tour.
 It makes you standout among competitors.
In the end, Chohero summarizes, “it gives clients confidence in me and my products. My business conversion rate has improved greatly since I made the transition.”
If we take a step further, companies like Virtualhome specializes in virtual tours, for property investors, renovations services and those seeking to take a tour of their future employers, etc.
How to VR/360°?
There are many softwares out there. And VeeR has made lots of tutorials on 3D/360°/VR. Chohero personally prefers 3DS MAX because it’s easy, and fast. He said the process would take about the same, if not less, time than making 2D pictures.
