Maybe you’ve heard about online interior design services but you haven’t made the jump to check it out because you don’t really understand what’s involved. We get it! If you’ve never worked with an interior designer or used an online design service, this might seem like a foreign concept. But choosing online design services to help with space planning or home design can help you take your home to the next level.
Today, we want to pull back the curtain and show you what a Modsy design project looks like and why it might be the best thing you’ve ever done for your home! (See how Modsy stacks up against traditional interior designers if you’re still not convinced!) To help you visualize the process and benefits, we’re showing off a sample design project and walking you through what the Modsy design experience is really like.
How Modsy Works
But before we dive in, you might be wondering how Modsy works. You start by choosing a design package and taking a style quiz to help us determine your interior design style. You’ll also give us the scoop on your budget and needs for your space and send us some photos and measurements of the space you want to design (eight photos and three measurements, to be exact). And we take it from there! (Meanwhile, you can kick back and explore some home design ideas or catch up on our podcast, The Render!)
We use some pretty cool technology to take the photos and measurements of your space to create an exact, 3D version of your room that’s built to scale. We sometimes call these “3D renderings” but all we mean by that is that we’ve designed a 3D version of your room so that you can better visualize what can go inside of it. We call it the Modsy 3D difference.
Once we have the model of your room built, your designer will get to work on your first two designs. They’ll show you two different layouts, color palette options, and real furniture and decor ideas all based on your preferences. This will help you see how different pieces will fit in your space and how the whole look can come together.
Of course, these are just the initial designs—your designer will continue to collaborate with you until you’re 100% happy with your design! And, along the way, all your designs will be in one place so you can see them all side by side and figure out what elements you like best.
Peek a Modsy Design Project
Ready to see what Modsy room designs actually look like? Peek inside some real Modsy design projects and discover 4 reasons why it’s the best way to design your home.
1. View your space from every angle (including a view from the top)
Recognize this space? We helped Monica and Chandler from Friends design their iconic living room—and we can do the same for you. Each design in your Modsy studio features a catalog spread of lifelike images showing your newly designed room from each angle—including a bird’s eye and 360-degree view of each design. This lets you see your room’s design from every angle, helping you really understand how every piece of furniture and decor will work together in your space. The top-down view is great for layout planning, and the “on-the-ground” views help you feel like you’re standing in the space.

2. You can see real furniture and decor in your exact room
You can buy furniture and decor in-store or online—but sometimes when you get a piece of furniture home you realize the size or style of the piece doesn’t work in your space. That’s because understanding furniture and decor within the overall context of your home is so key.
Your Modsy designs are created with real furniture that’s sourced from hundreds of different brands. This includes more well-known brands like West Elm or Crate & Barrel, as well as a ton of brands that only interior designers can access. This lets you see how real furniture and decor will work together and fit into your space—AKA a total interior design game-changer.

3. Swap in new furniture on your own
Skip the hassle (and 300-pound effort) of trying on sofas in real life. Once you have your initial Modsy designs, with a few clicks you can swap any item in your design for something new. And it takes less than a minute! It’s a fun way to sit in the designer’s seat and try out different items from the Modsy catalog. But don’t worry—your Modsy designer is still here to help and can lend a hand with additional design revisions if you want to see changes.

4. Shop your whole look in one cart
We know you have better things to do than run around to furniture stores all day. Since all of the items we use to design your room are real, the whole look is completely shoppable and lets you shop hundreds of brands with one cart. So, Modsy can also be your one-stop-shop—taking your designs from the screen to your actual room. To make it even better, we also honor all retailer sales and you can even apply Modsy-exclusive savings on top of those! Convenience and the best price around? What’s not to love!
