Augmented Reality (AR) is a developing technology and has proven to be greatly impactful and beneficial in many industries. This technology offers immersive solutions to many industries including the furniture industry, bringing newer opportunities and creating platforms for better user experience.
AR allows manufacturers to put their products on sale in much more effective ways than traditional methods, and allow users to get into in-depth details of the item they are buying. AR has been transforming business prospects in the furniture industry for years.
How is AR helping the furniture industry?
Through AR and AR-based applications, manufacturers can offer exclusive services to their potential customers. The 3D features of furniture models will help capture every detail that would allow customers to analyze every angle of the furniture. The features allow users to have a better visual idea of how the furniture will look in the space you are going to install. It will measure the size, design, space, and other aspects that a customer might need; to fulfill the customer’s every need.
For customers, a 3D view of the product to understand their space and furniture requirements by visualizing it through AR will lead to a more secure and informed buying experience. And this is what every customer wants; a hassle-free and convenient shopping experience that fits their needs.
What are the benefits of Augmented Reality in the furniture industry?
Since we are running towards utilizing smartphones for greater uses, AR applications seem to be a promising technology and have great potential to enhance many industries such as the furniture industry. Here are multiple ways that the industry can benefit from augmented reality:
- The furniture industry has challenged physical barriers in many forms over the years, coming up with foldable furniture, multipurpose furniture, etc. What has been missing was the fact to fit the furniture into the space their customers have intended for. AR applications for furniture allow and help the industry to overcome physical barriers.
- Through AR applications available on smartphones, customers can try the furniture virtually anywhere and choose according to their choice and need. This potentially increases sales and demand.
- No one would keep furniture that doesn’t fit, and return is the only option. Pre-purchase indecisions and post-purchase return costs can be significantly decreased with AR applications.
- With AR applications, features to personalize products can be offered which would attract more potential customers.
Augmented Reality has done a great deal to create better user experience applications that would educate customers about the products they are going to purchase and give them a virtual view of them. It is a smart technology to use and engage potential customers in a meaningful way. An AR application for furniture would allow users to browse through collections of the desired furniture in the comfort of their own, measure the space they have and find the best furniture that would fit and look good, customize according to their preferences, and enjoy the hassle-free user experience.
