Today 3D Cloud by Marxent, the leader in 3D e-commerce for furniture and home improvement, announced the rollout of a game-changing new kitchen design automation feature for enterprise home improvement retailers. Apply styles from inspirational kitchen photos directly to a custom floorplan then swipe through a complete range of possible layouts in seconds. The all-new “Design from Photo” instant, one-click design feature is available exclusively to enterprise 3D Kitchen Designer subscribers.
An extension of the 3D Cloud by Marxent “Design from Photo” patent, one-click kitchen design allows designers to focus on upselling and consulting with customers. DIYers can pick a photo they love, then instantly apply styles and layouts to get professional results in seconds. Shoppers can then click through all the possible permutations. Instead of spending time placing cabinets, designers and DIYers can spend time on details like finishes, upgrades and drawer options.
“Kitchen design hasn’t changed much over the past 20 years. It is still a time-consuming process that can take several in-person design sessions and go on for weeks,” said Beck Besecker, 3D Cloud by Marxent’s CEO and co-founder. “It’s a slow, manual process that can leave both designers and their clients frustrated.”
“After watching both kitchen design pros and consumers struggle through the painstaking process of laying out cabinets, we tasked ourselves to make designing a kitchen as simple as applying an Instagram filter,” he said. “The new instant, one-click design feature delivers on this vision.”
Here’s how it works:
- Create a floor plan. Pick a template or draw your own. Add windows, doors, and utilities.
- Select a style. Browse inspirational photos within the app, find one you like, and click the auto-layout button.
- Watch the magic happen. See the styles from the photo, including wall and cabinet colors, applied directly to the custom 3D floorplan.
- Swipe through layout options. Test all possible layouts and select the one that works best for your lifestyle.
- Finalize finishes. Change styles, paint colors, tiling, flooring, and more until the kitchen is picture-perfect.
“The team behind the ‘Design from Photo’ instant, one-click design feature has put several years of research and effort into solving this industry-wide problem,” Besecker said. “It’s the disruption that the kitchen design industry has been waiting for.”
