Have you ever fallen in love with a paint color, envisioned how it would complement your existing furniture and decor, only to find out that it was too red/brown/grey― or simply not the right color at all? Or splurged on an accent piece only to find that you’ll now need to redo your entire room to incorporate it?
So have many of our clients. In a world of pandemic home projects and avid DIYers, it can be beneficial to enlist the help of online interior design experts. Not only will you still save money through DIY, but you’ll know what you’re getting into before you dip your brush into the paint or start sanding.
What is Online Interior Design?
Digital interior design is very similar to virtual staging in that the digital artist will work from high-quality photos of your home to show you what your room will translate to in real life. These artists will use various 3D virtual rendering programs to remove undesired elements of your room, then show you options according to your specifications.
Here are a few ways you can use online interior design.
Play With Color
Digital interior design is a great way to determine a color palette, quickly compare options, and discover the best way to tie in your statement pieces. You could have repeated trips to the hardware store for new paint swatches, agonizing over painted patches and trying to imagine the full effect, then picking one and seconding guessing your choice after hours of painting. Or you could skip the drama and hire a digital interior design company like VINTEREX.
Pick Your Luxury Items
You may want to play with luxury wallpaper with gold leaf, large chandeliers, or faux furs, but not know which one will make the impact you want for the price. This is a great time to play with luxury decor. A great interior designer will be able to show you how to combine these luxury highlights while being able to recommend more cost-friendly substitutes for your out-of-budget favorites.
Optimize Your Floor Plan
Another aspect of digital interior design services is the ability to remove walls, add windows, and rearrange the space any way you’d like. You may have specific ideas on paper, but it can be hard to know what you’re looking for without an idea of the finished product. This way, you can avoid costly mistakes and rule out the wrong options.
You may even find out that your layout is already what you need; you simply need some fresh ideas on using the space with the proper styling. Again, great digital interior designers can help you through all of those steps.
Can I DIY Online Interior Design Too?
You definitely can try out digital interior design on your own first. However, the programs that virtual interior designers use can be expensive. Then you’d have to spend time (and likely more money) learning to use the powerful capabilities of the rendering software.
Again, this all depends on how extensive your remodel or renovation is. If you’re simply comparing paint colors, you may be able to do a fine job on your own. However, if you are trying to map out wall removal, new windows, or other structural renovations, you will benefit from a professional designer. Not only will they be able to create a much more sophisticated rendering (like accurately filling in what will appear behind the removed wall), but they will have a better understanding of what these kinds of remodels will require.
