Our lives are making a swift transition from the real world into the virtual world. And the world of home designing has also been under its influence from quite a while. Also more and more design professionals are beginning to extend their services virtually making the home designing process easier and less hassled. Here’s how you can also make use of these virtual tools while taking up your next home improvement project.
Skip paper, go for PDF’s
When your situation and location doesn’t allow you to meet your architect to see hand drawn sketches for every minor change or discussion, then floor plans made out in designing softwares and saved as PDF files is the easy way to go. You can see and review how the designing process is going about without the need of piles of papers coming in your mail.
Give them a clearer PICTURE
Verbally telling your architect how you want your new home to be isn’t going to work that well. But you can build up your own image library filled with all the ideas and inspirations of your home and share it with your architect to let him know what exactly you are looking for.
Arrange virtual meetings
Virtual meetings can help a great deal when real meetings seem difficult to happen. You can have video calls with your architect where you can simultaneously share content with him and discuss the progress and details of the project. It is easier and definitely more effective than phone calls.
Working with 3D models
Virtual reality and 3D models are one of the most powerful tools of an architect which he can use to give you a virtual experience of walking in your new home which hasn’t even been constructed yet. While choosing an architect check if they work with 3D models, and if they do you can efficiently use it for reviewing and asking for changes without paying unnecessary cost and effort.
