Designing With Modsy: 9 Reasons Virtual Interior Design Might Be Right for You

Home design projects can be a fun way to get the most out of your space. Working with an interior designer can give your home a style upgrade and make your space more functional for everyday life. While traditional interior design is not without its perks it can be costly and time-consuming, making the experience not well-suited for many peoples’ budgets or needs.

At Modsy, we believe that interior design is for everyone, so we work to make the experience as accessible as possible. Plus, using our service is risk-free, thanks to unlimited design revisions and our money-back guarantee.

Read on to learn more from our handy list of online design benefits that prove why it’s an excellent option for you.

1. Try Before You Buy

Let’s say that you want to buy a new sofa, but you’re having a hard time deciding what would work best for you. Maybe you aren’t sure about the color, size, or if it will fit in your space? Regardless of the reason, we understand how hard it can be to choose a piece of furniture without knowing what it will look like in your home. With online interior design, you can see exactly how new furniture and decor will look (and fit) in your exact room! How? All of our designs are sent to you as photo-real 3D images (aka a 3D rendering). No more guesswork required.

2. Explore on Layouts, Without the Heavy Lifting

Have you ever spent a whole day pushing furniture around your room only to end up back where you started? With Modsy’s virtual interior design services, trying on layout ideas has never been easier. Once you’ve signed up for an account, we’ll walk you through some super fun steps and show you how you can make unlimited changes in a pinch. Plus, our design team is always there to help make revisions for you, all you have to do is send a quick email, and you’ve got a brand new layout ready and waiting for you.

Want to try out your interior design skills? Easily make edits to your designs on your own with our one-of-a kind, drag-and-drop 3D interior design tools (it’s kind of like The Sims but with real furniture and your exact room, all to scale). You can also experiment with our Live-Swap feature, which lets you swap in new furniture and decor into your design in seconds. Easy-peasy.

Either way, you won’t have to throw your back out, pushing a sofa around your living room all day.

3. Pay Per Room, Not Per Hour

Many working with a traditional designer service can be great for a super hands-on experience, but the costs can add up fast! Most designers charge an hourly rate, or others might require you to purchase a minimum amount of furniture through them. But with online design services like ours, you don’t need to worry about any of those issues because: you’ll pay per room and not per hour.

4. Design Your Home From the Comfort of Your Sofa

In today’s turbulent world, it’s so important to have a home that feels like a sanctuary. But, with social distancing in place, it’s impractical to hire a designer that requires a home visit to design your house. Plus, finding the time to coordinate a consultation can be tricky.

But using an online design service means you can work on your design anytime, anywhere. Our designers are always available to help, and you can choose the communication method that works for you. So you’re getting all the contact a traditional design service would provide without the hassle of figuring out an in-person meeting.

5. Discover Your Style

A lot of people have trouble deciding on an interior design style that fits their needs, hence the need for design assistance. A massive benefit of online interior design is learning to identify what you like. When you start your project, we’ll ask you a series of questions in our super-accurate (and fun!) Style Quiz. Your results will help your designer nail your style and deliver designs with furniture and decor you’ll love. Who knows, you may end up enjoying a style you never expected was right for you.

6. Share With Friends and Family

It’s so important to stay connected with our friends and family these days. A really cool benefit of our online design experience is getting to share your interior design journey with everyone, you know. With the touch of a button, you can post your designs to Facebook or Instagram for the world to see. This way, you get to let everyone know what you’re up to, show off your space, and even get input from your online community.

7. Design With Pieces You Already Own

Have an item in your home you love but aren’t able to work into your decor? Maybe there’s an heirloom piece of furniture, like aunt Marge’s credenza, that you’d like to work into your living room layout? Another benefit of working with Modsy is being able to see pieces from your home included in your design. This way, you’ll be able to see how your favorite keep-sakes will look with your new layout and style designs. So we can make sure to find a place for that credenza that even old Marge would approve of!

8. Shop Your Look in One Easy Checkout

Buying furniture for a whole room can be a real hassle. For starters, you aren’t sure what items will look good together in your space because you haven’t seen them in a single design. Sometimes you’re buying from multiple retailers, trying to coordinate all the shipping costs, apply any deals, and manage a million open tabs all on your own. What a headache!

With Modsy, you can shop items from multiple retailers in one secure checkout. And, to top it off, we offer members-only sales that you can apply on top of retailers’ best prices. It’s all about saving you tons and making the whole shopping experience easy-peasy.

9. Your Happiness (and the Best Price) Guaranteed

At Modsy, when you purchase your favorite products, we match the lowest advertised price the day you place your order, including any applicable sales or promotions. Before placing your order, we’ll always triple-check with the retailers for any last-minute deals and make sure you’re getting the best price for all your items. Find a lower price elsewhere? Let us know within 24 hours of your purchase, and we’ll match it!

On top of all that, we promise to work on your design until you are entirely delighted with your space. We also offer an excellent money-back guarantee if you don’t find what you’re looking for with us. Because the only thing that matters more to use than high-quality, affordable interior design is your satisfaction as a customer.

living room tips1. Ensure You Have Ample Seating

The first order of business when prepping your living room for guests? Making sure everyone has a comfortable place to sit and relax!

Consider whether a sofa or a sectional is right for you, and if you need additional side chairs to go with it. If you’re tight on space try incorporating flexible seating options, like poufs or a coffee table that doubles as an ottoman.

living room tips2. Find the Right Layout

One of the best living room tips doesn’t require purchasing a thing. Finding the right layout for your space is just as important as picking a sofa or rug to fill it up. Think about the ways you enjoy spending time with loved ones and then optimize your living room layout to make that happen.

Does your family like to watch movies together? Be sure your sofa is oriented so that everyone gets a great view. And consider an option with an extra deep seat for extra comfort!

Or maybe playing board games around the coffee table is more your hosting style. Opt for a large coffee table and a layout that puts everyone in reach.

living room tips3. Get Sneaky With Your Storage

We’re all about living room furniture that goes the extra mile. Opt for pieces that incorporate hidden storage to help make cleaning easier and faster.

For example, a coffee table with interior storage is great for stowing away big books, board games, and even kids’ toys. A bench behind the sofa adds extra seating and can also double as a hiding spot for extra blankets and pillows.

living room tips4. Carve out Designated Zones

A great way to navigate weekends hosting guests and extended family is to make space for different activities within the same room.

Try incorporating a play area for the kids, or reserve a reading nook by the fireplace for grandparents to relax. A cocktail area is also a great way to stay close to the action of the main gathering space, but give yourself a bit of reprieve.

living room tips5. Refresh Your Decor

The easiest way to give your living room guest-ready facelift? Refresh your art and accessories! Mix up your art for an instant change, or swap in new accent pieces to put your home in a more festive mood.

Feel like a more major change is in order? Try a new rug to totally change the look of your space.
