Despite the growing popularity of augmented reality technologies in many different industries, there is still an untapped opportunity for its implementation in the realm of interior design. Consumer needs and demands evolve constantly, and with that comes the need to develop augmented reality applications that focus more on the users' experiences and specific preferences. This research paper presents a framework for creating a mobile AR design application that will allow its users to explore the home designing process with their own hands. A SWOT analysis of the current AR applications in the field is provided to justify the need for the novel invention. Overall the research aims to democratize the AR technology, making it more accessible to the general consumer and adding value with features missing from the current augmented reality app developments in the design sphere. The paper also presents opportunities for future developments of the application that would further enhance the user experience.
