New Delhi | With e-commerce making its way into every aspect of urban livelihood, the arduous ritual of decorating or renovating homes during Diwali is now just a click away.
Several online portals now act as a single-point contact to attend to all possible requirements of redoing a house, sparing customers the trouble of hiring carpenters or browsing through magazines for ideas, to make the process less tiresome.
“Home decor is considered to be a tedious activity. So, the incoming of online platforms is a welcome change because it gives consumers the luxury of choosing a designer while sitting in the comfort of their home,” says Ritu Malhotra, co-founder of Renomania, an online platform for home designing and building.
The platforms make extensive use of technology to provide customers with a comprehensive yet compact service.
At a time when life is too fast-paced to even spend some quality moments with one’s family, online renovation not only offers a lot of variety but also saves time, making the process much more relaxed and user friendly.
With options of virtual reality (VR) and 3-D technology becoming increasingly accessible, it is only a matter of few clicks and customers are able to see the final images of their redecorated homes, even before the process actually begins.
This gives them an opportunity to decide what they exactly want.
Urban Ladder, for instance, has developed an interior design tool where furniture can be dragged and dropped to create a 3D view of the room in question. The tool has been connected to Google Cardboard for the customer to explore the room in VR.
