Digital Interior Technologies in Hospitality

Today's 3D interior design tools allow us not only to create unique and realistic designs but to immerse the viewer into a 3D version of hotel life long before the visit - virtual tours, virtual experiences of visiting attractions, participating in virtual exhibitions and even making money from virtual properties. This is our new future. But let’s go through digital innovations step by step. The focus of digital tools in the hotel industry can be roughly divided into two types - User Oriented and Owner Oriented - how hotel users take advantage of digital opportunities and what benefits the digital world brings to hotel owners. But there are some products and technologies that create unique benefits for both parties, which we will focus on:

1. Interactive 3D interior design tools. 3D interior design is a great design tool for owners creating their new perfect getaways. But how many times have we as interior designers heard from clients how inspired they were after visiting some stunning hotels? That made us think of a new service. The hotel could suggest a 3D interior design model of the room/space client likes with the possibility to interactively change the space by adapting it for the client's apartment or room. That can help the client renovate his/her space in accordance with the hotel style with the help of a professional interior designer.

2. Virtual reality is the technology of immersing the visitor (client or owner) into the 3D world of the hotel: using glasses or just an application on the phone, a person can explore all the hotel spaces and amenities, enter the restaurant, see what a particular room looks like, and visit the spa and other areas. Today, many hotels also integrate navigation outside the hotel into their virtual service (in 3D reality or with the help of Google maps integration) - users can see in VR the way to the beach, the distance to the nearest attractions, a virtual visit to the museum or galleries nearby. Virtual reality can also serve as a technology for Hybrid events organisations, which allows clients to attend and organize virtual events - meetings, expositions, concerts, and for hotel owners - to sell the VR space and technology for such events.

3. Metaverse. Essentially, the metaverse is a digital world, where social interactions can take place through the use of an avatar. The metaverse then serves as an interactive, virtual world. Traditionally, hospitality has been associated with physical guest visits, but technology and the hospitality metaverse have changed this. More and more businesses want to be represented in the metaverse, and hotels are not an exclusion. The opportunities for hotels in the metaverse are super wide - from the organization of virtual events and meetings to selling rooms for work, spaces for games, tickets for expositions and many other virtual and real products. Metaverses today look like a primitive game, but step by step they develop the technologies and in the near future virtual world could look better than the real one - that’s why it is important to pay attention to the realistic 3D design starting today.

As you can see, 3D interior design technologies can not only help us to renovate a space, but also be our guide in virtual reality discovery. The concept of the metaverse hotel can offer great working, entertainment and advertisement tools for clients and owners - through virtual reality, augmented reality, and similar technologies. Let’s get there first!
