Bunnings Launches an Augmented Reality App to Help You Design Your Dream Outdoor Area


Ahead of longer days and warmer nights, Bunnings has launched an Augmented Reality (AR) Product Viewing App to help you visualise your dream outdoor space.

Anticipating a summer of family BBQs, pool parties and outdoor entertaining, the hardware giant has released the app with a curated range of more than 60 products from the Bunnings’ outdoor living collections.

By using the app and smartphone camera, homemakers will be able to virtually place 3D renders of furniture and accessories into their own outdoor areas, including Bunnings’ viral rattan chairs, BBQs, table settings, pizza ovens, and outdoor lounges.

According to data from Bunnings, the popular warehouse says its new AR app comes at the perfect time, while 75% of Australians have plans to update their outdoor zones ahead of summer.


“Once the warmer weather appears, customers get inspired to update and recreate their outdoor area, making it somewhere they can relax and entertain,” a Bunnings press release said.

“This app has been created to make it easy for customers to visually create their dream outdoor living space, virtually placing real products in their home from the palm of their hand.”

The free app is available to download now through the Apple Store and Google Play. Once you have had a play around and have found the products you’d like to add to your dream outdoor area, you can save the items to a shopping list and plan your buy ahead of your next trip to Bunnings, or make your purchase directly through the website.

Should you wish to get a second opinion on your outdoor design, you can even send your AR render to a friend or family member through the app for their tick of approval.
