Online Interior Design: Crowdsourcing Concepts for Great Living Spaces


Need a home makeover? For those homeowners who cannot afford the professional help of interior designers there are plenty of online resources offering DIY tips and basics for re-transforming spaces, work with colors and light, and create personalized and trendy spaces. However, going from the inspiration to the application is not always a straightforward path and most home projects are left uncompleted. Arcbazar offers an innovative web solution to decorate beautifully inspired and functional living spaces.

Arcbazar addresses the home interior design challenge by crowdsourcing architectural design. Each project is launched online and designers worldwide compete and submit concepts for the new space. Clients can then choose the solution they like most, based on their initial evaluation criteria. “Our goal is to make high-end design possible to regular homeowners with everyday small-scale home remodeling projects. We want our clients to be able to create their dream spaces in an easy, affordable and fun way,” says Ana Batista, co-founder of Hundreds of clients around the globe have already used Arcbazar for successful home interior design projects. “We have helped clients re-configuring layouts and create functional rooms, increase smart storage, and create modern and comfortable living spaces. We have also help build great kitchens, bathrooms, basements, living paces, or just redoing hardscape and landscape.”

Susan S., a homeowner from Washington, wanted to re-purpose and maximize her upstairs and downstairs living rooms and “get the opportunity to take two mis-managed spaces and make them work for a family of four”. Susan run a design competition on Arcbazar, received quality proposals with alternative layouts and with specific details on furniture and decor items, and opted for a concept from Nathalie Torossian, a designer from Armenia. Chuck L. had a similar experience. He needed help redesigning and decorating his Texas “single-guy home” and get ” a nice, comfortable place to live and entertain friends”. Chuck’s project received twelve entries, and he elected the solution presented by Ken Howder, an architect from Indiana, USA.
