Interior design is an art that enhances the environment and gives an artistic touch to interiors of a building. Interior design software is part of engineering, architecture and construction software and it is used by architects, engineers, and contractors to design the interiors of buildings. Interior design software helps to check interior design quality at early stages of the designing process to avoid future mistakes in construction. Quick-start ready templates and easy formatting tools are important features of this software. It also helps designer to access, monitor, and identify the difference between the proposed interior design and the real interior building work. The software helps interior designers to improve their productivity by reducing the dependency on paperwork and documentation of interior designs of buildings. It also helps companies to speed up the process of designing and reduces the time and cost involved in interior design work.
The interior design process involves concept development, field research, space planning, architectural design issues, and interior design execution. Interior design software is used to determine accurate work analysis and also improves the efficiency of designing work of specific projects. For better customer understanding of the interior designs, interior designers are using this software to represent designs in 3D format. 3D designs gives a complete idea of flooring pattern, ceiling structure, color combination, and furniture work. Hence, this software fastens the decision making process according to the interior structural requirements of customers.
The global interior design software market is primarily driven by increasing preference for attractive interior designs and decorations. Besides, infrastructure development in both developing and developed countries are boosting the growth of the interior design software market globally. Increasing government initiatives to promote and develop real estate and construction industry coupled with the need for higher productivity in design work is expected to further fuel the growth of the market over the forecast period. This software helps designers to reduce the time required for remolding and rebuilding the designs. Rising adoption of smartphones and tablets is creating opportunities for solution vendors to introduce more advance mobile application based solutions in the real estate and construction industry. Interior design software also plays an important role in designing the ventilation and power source structures in a building, which is very important for designers to take decisions regarding proper ventilation system design. This software helps companies to increase their return on investment and revenues by reducing the errors in designing and construction.
