Technology is always advancing, so why stay stuck in the past with traditional methods of designing your future home... Virtual Reality is shaping the way of the future in architecture and design and you can be a part of this change!!
What is not to love about being able to experience your dream home and walk through it as if it were in real life? Have you ever thought about it? Well, we have a list of 6 reasons why you should definitely consider VR when planning your next home or even just renovating!
#1 Immersive Experience
Yes, that’s right! You can walk through your building before it is even made. Whether in person or online, it can be accessed instantly and from anywhere. Virtual Reality has the capability of diffusing the barrier between real life and imagination to bring your own walk-through experience to life.
#2 Easy Communication
Whether a client, a builder or an architect, it has the possibility to allow for communication between everyone throughout the design process. Without having a background in construction reading flat plans can be difficult and hard to visualise. VR bridges the communication gap allowing collaboration and understanding for all involved, something drawings and words are unable to achieve on their own.
#3 Understanding Space
It can be hard to understand the space before it is built and often what you have pictured in your mind looks different in real life. Virtual reality lets you step into the space so that there are no surprises!! The walk-throughs allow you to understand each and every space and how they all connect. Even atmospheric qualities can be experienced to get a full understanding of the space at all times whether day or night!
If you don’t like a specific colour or finish, that can be modified to suit your needs! You can pick, choose and see the full finish whenever you need, making the process so much smoother. Choosing without seeing the final product can be hard to visualise. It is daunting sitting there looking at all these slightly different shades of colours or finishes for cabinets, trying to imagine what the space will look like. This way you can be completely sure before you go ahead with your choice and there are no surprises once it is all finished.
#5 Eliminates Misunderstanding
Having a full visualisation of the end product before it even begins, has a huge impact in the construction process. By laying out the digital and physical documentation, it will ease any doubt or misunderstanding to ensure better quality and outcomes for both builder and client. Errors in the design can be picked out early on, this way they can be avoided. There is a high chance that plans can be misinterpreted by the client and once it already gets built, it can be very costly to redo such errors. This leads onto my next point …
#6 Cost Saving
How, you might ask… Well, by seeing the full finished product before it is built, it can help with identifying errors or problems early on in the design process. This means you minimise any costs that can be faced towards the end of the project just because something was not the way you might of thought it was! Fixing any discrepancies encountered, or making simple alterations can cost you on average 10% of the total construction cost!! That is 10% extra on top of what you have already paid just to change or remove something that you had not noticed earlier.
If your thinking of building and want your vision to manifest before it gets built, follow the modern trends and digitalize your future home with Virtual Reality!!
