Digitizing Interior Design

The use of technology is becoming popular in all forms of art and design. The latest emergence is by interior designers, who can expand their creativity while making homes practical at the same time.

Technology can be used before a house is even built. Even during the planning stage, 3-D screening can help visualize space and floor design. With either a 3-D camera such as Matterport or scanning apps on devices, designers can quickly scan a room and replicate it. There can be adjustments made to suit one’s preference, with minimal error and more accuracy. Architects can even collaborate with designers through software (Miro, Gather, etc.). This makes brainstorming easier, allowing clients to give their feedback and be a part of the design process.

Another huge part of digitizing interior design is embracing “smart homes”. This refers to technology being integrated within the house itself to improve comfort and efficiency. There are a wide variety of technological-based features. Firstly, you can use smart sensors such as smoke or heat which send notifications on your phone and calls emergency services. This is incredibly useful if you are not at home and an emergency arises. Smart motion sensors can even detect movement to prevent intruders from entering. Lighting is another option that can be entirely digitized. You can adjust dimness, number of lights, and even color depending on your mood. If you want to host a party or disco night, no fear – the ambiance can be switched in an instant. The same thing is possible with electronic blinds. These can further be soundproof for maximum convenience. Another cool feature that is available via technology is smart locks. These are integrated into homes and allow doors to lock and unlock remotely. For extra safety measures, one can connect biometrics i.e. their fingerprint to the lock directly. Overall, there are multiple innovative designs out there and even more, are being developed to make house life even more comfortable and practical.
