This work presents the features of using virtual reality-based technology as a medium to visualize the interior of a building before it is being built. Interior design in virtual reality is considered important in making its interior look more realistic and appealing to the user. The paper explains how virtual reality along with the latest software and hardware can be used for an immersive and interactive user experience. Virtual walkthrough was developed using Unity 3D software and the head mounted display called HTC-Vive. The user can move around the space and visualize the assets in the building. In addition to creating virtual walkthrough, interaction is also enabled so that the user will be able to change colour and texture of the assets in the building. The effect of aliasing is negated through polygon reduction of the models in 3D modelling so as to provide a seamless user experience. The merit of this work is discussed in the conclusion chapter.
