Obtaining a preview of something is highly useful and enables us to get a clearer picture of what we can
expect. For example, when we’re travelling to a city or country where we’ve never been before, we
might look up Google Maps or Street View to see just what the location looks like. When we’re spending
large amounts of money on renovating our homes, it would be nice to have a very clear idea of how the
living space will look post-renovation.
Virtual reality allows us to leave our imaginations aside and see a comprehensive preview of how our
homes will look after a redesign. It is worth making a distinction between virtual reality and augmented
reality; the latter allows us to mix realism with virtuality and distinguish between the two, while the
former is a whole new world where the lines of reality and virtuality are blurred.
It is no surprise that virtual reality is becoming so widely used in interior design when it can give us such
a clear vision of the results of a home renovation. There is just too much expense and effort invested in
renovation for you to make do with a living space that looks nothing like how you initially imagined it.
Eliminate the guesswork and embrace the virtual reality technology that exists today. It’s available, so
why not use it?
Below you will see an infographic from HalfPrice.com.au which explores the exciting new world of virtual reality in greater detail. Once you slip on
those VR goggles, you’ll never look at home renovation in the same way again!
