With technology affecting design, gone were the days when all you need is an eye for color or detail. Today, various modern tools can be used to create breathtaking interior setups for your taste. Here are some ways that technology can help you decorate with confidence:
Technology Saves You Time and Effort
Computer-aided design programs, also known as CAD, save you a lot of time. This gives you confidence in the decoration process, knowing that the design process will take weeks and not months. Thus, you can set a timeline for your home improvement project and actually meet it.
Having trouble imagining what your home would look like after decorating? You no longer need to leave everything to the imagination. Thanks to Building Information Modeling (BIM), interior designers can now show you a “digital twin” of the design. This way, you’ll be able to see how everything will look like beforehand. You can also request changes before your designer does the actual hands-on work.
Technology Helps You Find The Best Interior Designers
You may now vet interior designers online prior to meeting them. For example, you can request a digital portfolio of their past home improvement projects. This will help you quickly shortlist potential designers, without spending a lot of time on inquiries.
Designers who work only with sheer talent and eye for detail still exist. However, it is becoming more essential to work with home decorators that also utilize technology. This will help you become more involved in the decorations and see how everything unfolds.
Technology Helps You Communicate Design Goals Faster
The initial, exploratory stage takes the most time for you and the interior designer. The decoration specialist will usually ask you about the kind of design you would go for. Without any clue about what you want, the designer might find it difficult to suggest decoration ideas.
On the other hand, the initial talks would be much faster if you know what you want. You can simply hop on sites like Pinterest, Houzz or Instagram for inspiration. Once you find some interior design that inspires you, you can just hand it over to your designer.
As time goes on, we can see technology affecting design in more ways we never thought possible.
