Ok, it’s no surprise that technology is literally changing everything around us, but one industry that hasn’t had as much advancement over the years comes in the form of interior design. It’s traditionally costly, timely, and requires a designer to come out and basically take care of everything unless you’re one of those handy types. While that may always be a popular method, regardless of the tech being introduced, it doesn’t mean that there aren’t movers and shakers that are disrupting our typical outlook of the field to make it quicker and easier, while still keeping most of the power in the homeowner’s hands.
The service, called TapMeasure, focuses on quickly and easily measuring spaces and objects. You can create 2D floor plans and and simple measurements, as well as use it for “Smart leveling,” to make sure your pictures are perfectly straight. The service also features something called 3D Room Builder which basically lets you create a 3D model of your space quickly, where it can then be uploaded to 3D modeling software, SketchUp. You can add doors, windows, whatever you might have in the space, and generate accurate models of your room because TapMeasure is constantly measuring everything for accurate representations.
And then there is Hutch, which is kind of the amalgamation of the two mentioned above. While it doesn’t have the measuring capabilities of something like TapMeasure, Hutch does give users the ability to take a photo of a space and then upload it into the Hutch app. Once in there, you can browse through different furniture, patterns, artwork, you name it to create your perfect space. Once you’ve created your perfect space, you’ll then be able to purchase the pieces through the specific retailers.
