Planner 5D – an interior design application – offers virtual reality capability; data says the virtual reality market is on a path of fast growth.
May 12, 2017, When designing one’s home, it’s often difficult to imagine what a room will look like once it’s finished. A chandelier or an armchair might look impressive on it’s own, but creating an overall harmonious feel in a room requires a certain level of skill and experience. Often times, a homeowner suddenly regrets a decision they’ve made and will have to undo it, wasting precious time and energy in the process. Fortunately – this may soon become a problem of the past! Interior design applications like Planner 5D come with VR functionality, which allows homeowners to “Step inside” of their projects and explore every corner of their design while making sure each room blends harmoniously with the other.
Although there are other home design services out there – such as Decorilla – that offer similar services, people who use these services wind up paying fees that range from $400 to $1,300, and wind up relying on a designer’s final decision rather than their own. That’s why those who are looking to create their own interior design projects and save money in the process turn to apps such as Planner 5D. With VR capability, self-design becomes easier than ever and allows homeowners to “walk around” their interior design projects and get a feel for what the real house will feel like when it’s finished.
According to a report by Allied Market Research, the global augmented and virtual reality market was valued at $760 million in 2015, and is projected to reach $59,511 million by 2022. Though this market initially gained popularity with gaming applications, virtual reality has now ventured into the real estate field as well. For example, builders claim that virtual reality is the “future of home buying” – similarly, it looks like it’s the future of home design as well.
Planner 5D has already helped more than 18 million ameteur interior designers, architects and renovators worldwide to design their dream homes, offices, coffee shops and restaurants like professionals. With Virtual Reality however, this will become easier than ever! To create a room in Planner 5D, simply enter the room dimensions, then choose your furniture from a 3000+ item catalog that is constantly being updated. If that’s not enough, you can also alter the colors and textures of all furniture, walls, and floors, design your projects in detailed 2D and 3D perspective, create photorealistic images of your projects, and share your ideas with friends, family, and other ameteur interior designers through social media.
In an interview, Alexey Sheremetyev – one of the founders of Planner 5D – had this to say: “Video games are created by professional designers that take the player into their own Virtual Reality. With Planner 5D, people can create their own homes and are actually able to walk through them and experience them for themselves. With the virtual reality market growing at the rate that it is, we know that we’ve made the right decision to be one the pioneers in this field. In the current marketplace, people want to see and feel things. It’s not enough to just show them designs on a computer screen anymore.”
VR functionality is currently only available for Android. Other versions are currently in development.
