A new TV series on Channel 4 called 'Project Home' is adding another dimension to property makeover shows by using virtual reality in the design process.

Hosted by TV and radio presenter Nick Grimshaw, who has previously worked on 'The Great Home Transformation', the show lets homeowners fully immerse themselves in their design ideas by creating a virtual reality walk through of them. Cunningly, it also means they can resolve any disagreements in taste without delaying work while options are agreed.
