Virtual Worlds has said that research suggesting more than a third (35%) of UK homeowners experience buyer’s remorse when it comes to home improvements, will allow 4D technology to really take off.
The survey showed that 39% of Brits admitted that the kitchen is the room most in need of a revamp, yet for almost half (42%) of those asked, it can take up to five years to be completely satisfied with the state of their home.
Nathan Maclean, Managing Director of Virtual Worlds, explained: “A new kitchen is a big investment, financially and emotionally, so it is understandable that homeowners can be hesitant. With so much choice available, settling on the right look can be daunting and difficult to visualize.
“This is where 4D technology has a massive advantage. Consumers can walk around the space freely via a specially-designed headset. This tracks their body and hand movements and relays them on to the screen, enabling them to interact by opening doors and drawers and getting a genuine feeling for their new kitchen.
“Our software is all about providing customers with peace of mind, giving them the information at their fingertips to ensure they have an informed decision throughout the design process and putting an end to buyer’s remorse.”
