TUCSON, Ariz. -  A virtual design tool that realistically presents flooring, cabinetry, countertops, backsplashes, and other home design elements in place, was launched by Richmond American Homes of Arizona. The Virtual Designer personalization tool portrays home interior options and renderings accurately for buyers before they order. 
 
Richmond American Homes of Arizona, Inc. a subsidiary of M.D.C. Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: MDC), recently debuted Virtual Designer technology in Tucson. The online personalization resource is intended to help homebuyers better prepare for appointments at Richmond American's Home Gallery design center, says M.D.C. Holdings, which says one of the first users was an out-of-town buyer, who changed his color selection after reviewing designer recommendations emailed from the tool.  
 
Richmond American prides itself on using the latest technologies to build exceptional homes that reflect each buyer's unique personality and design aesthetic. After buyers schedule their complimentary design appointment at the Home Gallery, they will be granted access to the innovative Virtual Designer tool, which will allow them to select and personalize finishes for a virtual kitchen that closely resembles that of their new home.
 
The Virtual Designer tool focuses on the kitchen not only because it's the heart of the home, but because it typically offers more design options than other living spaces. Homebuyers can use the state-of-the-art technology to select flooring, cabinetry, countertops, backsplashes, appliances and more and email a copy of their dream kitchen to their Home Gallery design consultant. The tool also includes a model home picture gallery for buyers seeking design inspiration.
