Interior Design and Technology: How Innovation Is Affecting Execution

Interior Design and Technology: How Innovation Is Affecting Execution

Modern technology has influenced and even transformed just about every aspect of our lives. Communication, work, wellness and even romance have all been impacted. A number of professional niches also went through massive changes in the past few decades. Interior design is one of them.

Home interior design is evolving as new technologies become available.

Smart solutions and new materials are making executions easier, quicker and much more personalised than ever before.

Software Opens Up a Whole New World

The first aspect of interior design project execution affected by technologies occurs before the actual home renovation even takes place. Computer software is enabling a whole range of possibilities when it comes to planning the execution and making sure it’s the right choice for the homeowner.

Various 3D design programs are already in existence. They’re readily available and reputable Singaporean interior designers work with such solutions to offer clients a sneak peek into the end result.

Many people find it difficult to imagine what their brand new home is going to look like. New software takes the guesswork out of the equation. In fact, some programs allow for the creation of immersive virtual reality models. These feel even more realistic than other illustrations of the interior design. Additionally, changes can be made on the go to accommodate for client’s preferences.

If you’re interested in getting to know your how your home  will look with the proposed new interior design before the project has commenced, you can count on solutions like HomeAlive 360 by Home Guide. To be able to see ideas visualized in 3D and also to be able to interact and explore within the simulated space gives you the chance to see if your ideas work, to make adjustments or to go back to the drawing board.

3D Printing – Everything Is Possible

We mentioned personalisation and custom-crafted solutions in the opening of this article. One of the technologies that enable personalisation like never before is 3D printing. It has a profound range of applications in the world of interior design. The good news is that 3D printing is becoming more common and more affordable with each passing day.

In essence, 3D printing turns three-dimensional models into actual objects that get “printed” from resin (other materials could also be available). The 3D printing technology has been used to create everything from musical instruments to camera lens and even working weapons.

Interior designers have been using 3D printers to create sculptures, furniture, light fixtures and a whole host of other items.

Just like in the case of 3D visualisation, this kind of printing makes it possible to create unique executions for the client.

In the past, one of a kind solutions used to be incredibly expensive. Coming up with a single piece for a client involved a lot of preliminary planning and material waste, which contributed to the expensive price tag. With 3D printing, the rules of the game are changing.

While using a 3D printer to come up with unique items for an interior design project is still expensive, the technology is paving the way for profound changes in the realm. Chances are that in the future, people will find it very easy and affordable to dream of some home décor item and have it manufactured exactly that way. Wouldn’t that be a great addition to a world that’s already capable of quite a lot of personalisation?

Space Enhancement

A smart home is no longer a thing of the future.

In fact, it is becoming the norm for many Singaporeans.

Smart solutions are impacting many aspects of interior design execution, from the selection of lighting to climate control and energy efficiency.

Today, we have access to technologies that would have been considered impossible just a few decades ago.

Smart fridges capable of creating shopping lists, intelligent ovens that can execute recipes on their own and modern security systems are all available on the mass market. Seamless integration is possible through a smartphone or assistant-enabled speakers, creating a central hub for remote adjustments and interactions with the intelligent environment.

Making your home smart will allow you to meet just about any goal through an interior design upgrade. From saving money on utility bills to enjoying an ambiance that’s in line with what you like (music, art), these are all possibilities to interact with your home thoroughly and efficiently.

New Materials

Last but not least, we need to mention innovative materials briefly.

Modern engineered fabrics are one wonderful example. There are already materials out there that can react to touch and even audio stimuli.

And this is just one example. So many other options are available – microcement (having a much finer finish than regular cement), alucore (an aerospace industry material that has already become available to regular consumers) and bricks made entirely from construction waste are just the tip of the iceberg.

As you can see, sky’s the limit when it comes to introducing new technologies in your next home renovation project.

When such modern solutions are chosen strategically, they can help you meet a number of end goals. This is why you need to team up with a team of interior designers open to innovation and familiar with some of the latest trends.

Home Guide is one such team. We can consult you, suggest the right mix of modern and classic choices and execute an interior design project that will surpass your wildest dreams. Contact us now to get going!
