How to furnish your condo

DUBAI: In this age of connectivity and fast-evolving technology that has easily been coming within reach, overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) are spared the daunting task of furnishing their condo units to monetize them by way of rents.

And as the Independent puts it in its Home&Property section, the best way to avoid expensive mistakes as you give your home a redesign is to experience the new look before you start any work.

“This is the purpose of the latest 4D visualisation technology for home makeovers, which allows you to see your newly designed home in impressive detail before you commit,” wrote travel and lifestyle writer Clare Vooght in her piece for The Independent.

The ways she put it makes it sound close to magical, indeed, saying all you need to do is put on the VR goggles “and see walls take up new positions as your space is transformed.”

Vooght said the technology not only allows you to see new room configurations, it can show how the light will change in them throughout the day. “Close your eyes and imagine the staircase in your home in a new location, then mentally rearrange internal walls,” she said.

It’s difficult. But virtual reality software, or VR, stretches your imagination and illustrates ways to improve your daily life through better layout and design, added Vooght.

VR software is increasingly offered by architects and design retailers, too.

Meantime, Nathan Maclean, managing director of Virtual Worlds, leaders in interactive VR design software, says it makes communication between architects and designers and their clients easier and saves a lot of expensive mistakes and disappointment.

Back then, he said, the designer would have to used a standard CAD program to produce a 2D drawing on a computer screen, leaving much to the consumers’ imagination.

“Now 4D technology is so immersive that if any element of the design doesn’t look quite right, adjustments can be made with a click of a button and importantly, consumers can gain a sense of spatial awareness,” the Independent quoted him as saying.

Designer and founder of interiors and property company 1.61 London, Alex Christou, who works with both homeowners and larger-scale developers, agrees:

“It saves everyone money on the project, and they have the comfort of knowing what it’s going to look like at the end. Changes have become a lot rarer since we’ve got this technology,” he said.
