Last week, MOSS unveiled our latest and greatest step forward in the remodeling industry with the unveiling of an innovative tool that is one of its kind around the world. MOSS 360, the virtual reality design capability that will change the way homeowners remodel their home, was officially introduced to the public at the Superior Design Experience, an exclusive event at our Chantilly office.

Virtual Reality Meets Remodeling

The event focused on many elements of design, from choosing your selections, to on-site solutions, but the event was centered around the unveiling of MOSS 360 and the virtual reality concepts that MOSS 360 Expert Tyler Tappan has been perfecting. “It’s really exciting to see our customers’ eyes light up when they see what the technology can allow them to do,” said Marketing Manager Carly McAlister.

MOSS 360 Design Technology Tried and Tested

Our first ever MOSS 360 user was MOSS Customer Betsy Illidge, who found herself shocked at every turn by the capabilities it had. “I was stunned by the level of detail and the ease of use,” Illidge said. You can see her using the technology for the first time and her reaction in the video below.

MOSS 360 Features and Capabilities

As shown in the video with Betsy, MOSS 360 has a wide variety of design features that make touring your potential remodel feel extremely realistic.

Real-Time Lighting

For each MOSS 360 project, MOSS expert Tyler will do a sun study to determine how light will fall into the remodel. This is a common quandry homeowners have that can determine a lot of the design choices they want to test out. For instance, if you’re not sure how a paint color in your living room will differ from 12 pm to 9 pm, MOSS 360 allows you to see that difference within the space in real time, potentially saving you time and money from having to repaint if it’s not the look you were going for.

See your Space

While this feature may seem self-explanatory, there is a big difference between visualizing a space and actually walking through it. If you have concerns about how big a hallway is, or the door-swing to a small bathroom-- or maybe you are concerned about whether your kitchen will hold your whole family during the holidays-- MOSS 360 allows you to see for yourself whether or not those space issues are real or not. Feeling whether or not a room is too small (or too big) is no longer something you determine after the remodel has already finished. With MOSS 360, you can feel how your space flows before construction has even begun-- an invaluable feature for homeowners who are deep in the remodeling and design process.

Selections Up Close

One of the capabilities that may surprise homeowners using the technology is how customizable MOSS 360 can be. Instead of just visual representations of selections-- for instance a standard kitchen sink faucet or kitchen countertop-- homeowners can choose exactly which brand selection they would like. If you want to see how a certain kitchen sink will look (say a Kohler Apron-front sink) MOSS 360 has the ability to scan in that exact selection and place it into your space.

Likewise, if you have an exact slab of granite that you want to see how the light reflects off of it, Tyler can place that exact slab of granite into the MOSS 360. The customization available to homeowners with MOSS 360 will allow them to not only see how each individual selection looks, but how cohesive the selections look together by walking through and seeing them in a real-life setting.

The Future of Design with MOSS 360

As the Superior Design Experience showed, there is a lot of excitement around this new design capability and how it will help our customers visualize their remodel. We are excited to see how MOSS 360 is able to transform the lives of our customers and simplify the remodeling process in a way like never-before.
