Virtual reality to help design the perfect conservatory

Virtual reality technology developed for the games industry has been adopted by a Scottish home improvements company to give customers a whole new perspective on their dream conservatory or home extension.

CR Smith, which has been building conservatories for more than 30 years - and more recently orangeries and sunrooms - has introduced a new 3D Virtual Reality design service for all customers, which transforms its 2D concepts into fully immersive 360-degree virtual tours.

A customer can sit in their individually planned conservatory and visualise the furniture, the finishes and the view out across their garden before the project begins.

CR Smith is the first home improvements company to use this technology, which is growing in popularity within the housing market for its ability to provide customers with an interpretation of their new home.

The CR Smith design team takes photographs of a customers’ home and uses this to produce a 3D visual tour unique to that customer’s house and style. The design can be viewed either through a headset for the complete experience, or on a computer screen.

The 360 VR tour design service is available for CR Smith’s conservatories, sunrooms and orangeries and will show the layout, access points and fixtures and fittings to give the ultimate insight into how to enjoy the new room.

Gareth McCluskey, head of marketing for CR Smith, said:“Virtual reality adds a whole new dimension to the design process for our range of bespoke conservatories, orangeries and sunrooms. We are all familiar with the technology through the likes of Google Street View and it’s proved to be extremely popular with our customers as it adds to the excitement of designing the perfect space.

“It is easy to imagine the size, dimensions, colour of finishes, how the flooring will look or where your furniture will go when you can literally turn around in the space. You’re able to see yourself in the space you have designed and using the room, even before it’s built!

“This technology demonstrates our ongoing commitment to ensuring that every detail of the design process is thought through to ensure the perfect build for the customers’ home.”
