Using Augmented Reality to Make Decorating Decisions
If you’re shopping for apartment décor, you might be hesitant to purchase an item without knowing how it will look in your home. All too often, people love how couches, dining room tables, and bedroom sets appear in the store but are overwhelmed once the pieces are delivered, since they look so much larger at home than they did in the showroom. And, showroom lighting can make colors appear differently than they would in your home. Did you know that there’s an easy way to see how furniture and other décor will look in your apartment? It’s true! By using an augmented reality app, you can get an accurate idea of how new apartment décor will look and confidently make decorating decisions based on that information.
How Does Augmented Reality Work?
Augmented reality (AR) involves overlaying digital images onto real-life environments (this is different than virtual reality, which is entirely generated by computers). There are a number of AR apps available to be installed on your mobile device. Once you’ve downloaded the app of your choosing, select the furniture, appliance, or décor you’d like to try out. If you’re thinking of purchasing a specific piece, certain retailers offer their own AR apps, and other companies have their items featured on third-party apps. Otherwise, you can try out generic pieces similar to the apartment décor you have in mind.
Next, scan the room where the object will be located using the camera on your phone or tablet. The app might instruct you to include certain portions of the room — such as the floor — in the scan to ensure accurate dimensions. The app will then integrate the selected item into your room so that you can see how it’ll look in those surroundings. You can also move the object around so that you can visualize how it fits in one spot versus another.
