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.

Why VR/360°?

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:

[1] It’s engaging. The experience of virtual tour alone excites clients.

[2] It becomes interactive with virtual tour.

[3] 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.
