By now, everyone’s heard about Pinterest’s new Home AR function, which lets you virtually place furniture in your room to see how it looks before you buy it. As excited as I was to try this out, I was also skeptical that something that seemed too good to be true would end up not being true at all. But boy was I wrong! The feature works well and actually makes the furniture shopping process easier and more fun than ever before! Plus, if you’ve never shopped around on Pinterest before, this will get you hooked on using the platform in the future – let me tell you why.
When you are looking at new furniture to buy, it can be difficult to tell whether a style will fit in with your other furniture
Pinterest’s new home AR function is a total game changer! You can now see how a piece of furniture will look in your home before you buy it, which makes shopping for furniture so much easier. Plus, it’s just really fun to play around with! If you’re looking for a new piece of furniture, definitely check out this feature. It can take the guessing game out of shopping for furniture and make the whole process go by quicker. Happy browsing!
To use home AR, all you have to do is click on an image of a product that has an add to cart button – then simply place your phone over where you would like that product in real life. A bar at the bottom of your screen will show up, allowing you to adjust where exactly you want that product.
This feature might be super useful if any online orders haven’t quite met expectations in terms of size or style – or if you need help visualizing what some assembly-required pieces might look like once they are put together (or even with certain types of decor).
It’s not just about furniture either: many other retailers are starting to implement these features as well.
The new home augmented reality feature makes this process easier
With Pinterest’s new home augmented reality feature, you can now shop for furniture and see how it would look in your space before you buy it. This is a game-changer for anyone who likes to shop online, and it makes the process of furnishing a new home much easier.
Simply select the view in my space option when viewing a product on Pinterest, and then point your phone’s camera at the area where you’d like to see the piece of furniture. You’ll be able to see how it looks in real life, and decide if it’s something you want to purchase.
Place the photo over your floor plan
Trying to imagine what a piece of furniture will look like in your home can be tricky- will it fit in the space you have? Pinterest’s new home AR function lets you see exactly how a piece of furniture will look in your home before you buy it, making shopping for furniture easier than ever. With this tool, you can place the photo over your floor plan, or use an iPhone or iPad to paint the room with different colors and get an idea of what that sofa would look like in various color schemes.
Take a photo of your room
Trying out Pinterest’s new home AR function is super easy and totally addictive. All you need to do is take a photo of your room, and then the app will show you how different pieces of furniture would look in your space. You can even save the photos of the different furniture arrangements for later. This is a great way to see how different pieces of furniture would look in your home before you buy them, and it makes shopping for furniture so much easier.
Drag items around
With Pinterest’s new home AR function, you can now shop for furniture right from the comfort of your own home. All you need is an iPhone or iPad and the Pinterest app. Simply point your camera at the room you want to shop for, and Pinterest will show you a variety of furniture options that fit the space. You can then add items to your shopping cart and purchase them right from the app.
The best part? You don’t even have to leave your house to do it! It’s especially helpful if you’re on the fence about whether or not a particular item will look good in your space, because you’ll be able to see it in person without having to buy something sight unseen. And this augmented reality technology only makes furniture shopping easier – which doesn’t seem possible with our current supply-and-demand crisis situation.
Move items into your shopping cart
With Pinterest’s new home AR function, you can now add items to your shopping cart without ever leaving the app. The process is simple: just select the item you want to buy, and then tap on the add to cart button. Once you’re done shopping, you can review your purchase and check out all in one go. This new feature is totally addictive and makes furniture shopping easier than ever before. You can also use it to find new pieces of furniture that fit into your room and choose from an endless list of product options from top retailers like Crate & Barrel, Pottery Barn, and more.
