3 Tech Tips for Collaborative Interior Designing

Team Discussion

Interior design isn’t always a one-person job. It’s not uncommon for a team to tackle a project that’s tricky or overwhelming; different talents and ideas work together to make beautiful decisions.  

How? Here are 3 tips for using tech to make collaborative interior designing easier. 

Virtual Reality (VR) 

VR collaboration can be great, offering an immersive and interactive way to work together, even if you’re miles apart.

You want to:

  • Pick a VR platform that lets you hang out in a virtual space with your team
  • Upload your design ideas and 3D models into the virtual world
  • Brainstorm and tweak designs in real-time, just like you would in person
  • Get hands-on by manipulating objects and experimenting with layouts

Picture this: You and your design crew are scattered across different cities, but that doesn’t stop you from collaborating on a hotel lobby makeover. Thanks to a platform you gather in a virtual space, import floor plans and furniture models, and start brainstorming. You’re rearranging plants, testing sofa designs, and making on-the-fly decisions together. The result? A design that wows your client.

Online Moodboards and Design Platforms

Online mood boards and design platforms are popular hubs for gathering inspiration and sharing ideas for a reason.


  • Fire up platforms like Pinterest, or Canva, where you can create and collaborate on mood boards
  • Set up a shared board where everyone can toss in images, color palettes, and furniture picks
  • Chat and give feedback on each other’s choices using comments and annotations
  • Keep things organized by sorting your mood board into sections for different rooms or themes
  • Update the board regularly to reflect new ideas and project developments

Imagine you’re tackling a residential project with your team. You set up a shared Pinterest board where everyone drops in their favorite furniture picks, fabric swatches, and paint colors. And as the project evolves, so does the mood board; a living document that captures the essence of your collective vision.

Cloud-Based Project Management 

Cloud-based project management tools could be the glue that holds your interior design project together, keeping everyone on the same page and on track.


  • Take your pick from tools like Trello, Asana, etc
  • Break down your project into bite-sized tasks and assign them to team members
  • Keep the conversation flowing with comments, mentions, and notifications
  • Stay on top of deadlines and milestones to ensure smooth sailing
  • Adapt and adjust your plans as needed to stay within budget and meet your goals

Picture this: You’re revamping a corporate office space with your team, and you pick an app that functions as a virtual whiteboard where you can see who’s doing what and when. And when hurdles pop up, you tackle them head-on so that the project stays on track and client-ready.

Embracing these tech-savvy strategies—VR collaboration, online mood boards, and cloud-based project management—can streamline collaborative interior design efforts.  Try them!
