In the wake of our 3rd birthday, the mydeco community has nearly hit the epic milestone of creating 300,000 3D rooms. Not to brag or nothing, but that’s the equivalent of building a virtual city the size of Oxford. Plus, if you’re the lucky member who creates the 300,000th room, you’ll win £100 of mydeco boutique vouchers – let the countdown begin!
This gigantic achievement, of reaching 300,000 rooms, really is all down to our loyal, creative and home-loving mydeco community members – we’re thanking all of you for this accomplishment. Our 3D tool has given everyone a place to showcase their creativity in exceptional ways. 300,000 rooms is like one in every 20 people in the UK building a virtual room.
Since the launch of the 3D tool in March 2008, creativity has flurished. The tool is no longer used for beige, boring, rooms; its an artistic tool used to create jaw-dropping beauty. Users such as 3rdfloor have been here since the beginning and their skills of 3D building have grown with mydeco.
3rdfloor‘s orginal 3D room living room designs, back in the day, were fairly standard four walls, fireplace, sofa combos.
But his most recent designs use giant glass walls which enhance the shading of the entire room. I’d like to live here, wouldn’t you?
Frankham is one of our more prominant designers and community members, she’s fourth in our top 20 list of 3D room creators. She has soley produced an astonishing 1, 673 3D rooms.
When told she was in the top 20, she said: ‘ The 3D tool brings my designs to life. I like the diversity of the site, I can see whatever my imagination creates in an instant (well almost) and have constructive comments from like-minded people. Being in the top 20? I’m gobsmacked, but quietly pleased.’ Checkout our other top 20 users here on facebook.
With all these rooms being created – what is the most popular room? Well, it seems the whole community just love designing bedrooms – 28% of all rooms created feature snuggly beds and wonderful wardrobes. This is closely followed by the ever so popular living room with 25% off all users creating their dream lounge.
But there’s too much chintz and floral in these rooms because only 1.6% off all 3D rooms are categorised as masculine. Man-up and help mydeco create a larger catelogue of 3D rooms with some more manly abodes – remember if you create the 300, 000th room, you could win £100 of vouchers.
This room, by saralee, is apparently categorised as ‘masculine’ but I’m pretty sure this room still has a woman’s touch; to be honest most men might find this a bit intimidating.
With endless inspiration and no limits or bounds creating a 3d room, you think the most popular rendered item would be something like this multicoloured chest by Cotterell Light Centres.
However, it seems our community members prefer this TV, it’s the most popular of our items and has appeared in over 13,000 rooms! It’s not exactly inspiring but it’s a focal item to point the furniture at.
mydecorati members love their accessories and it appears they like nothing more than OKA’s hurricane lamp. It’s appeared in over 8,000 rooms – appearing on community members’ table tops and coffee tables.
It’s not only our 3D rooms with high numbers; over the past three years you’ve filled our picture library with nearly 400,000 inspiring images.
You’ve pasted and positioned our stocklist onto nearly 35,00o moodboards.
You keep gabbing away in our forums asking over 2,000 questions and giving over 12,000 answers. You have helped make mydeco one of the leading sites for interior design – providing a wealth of knowledge and motivation to everyone.
Keep the inspiration coming and continue to use our design tools to create more outstanding 3D rooms. Goodluck to the participant that makes the 300,000th room. And hey, here’s to the next 300,000.
