The disclosure describes virtual reality (VR) techniques to create a virtual home for visualizing an appearance and functionality of a home setup. Per the techniques, a home can be visualized in virtual reality before completion or at any later time. The techniques, which can be implemented in a smart home application, enable users to preview furniture, appliances, etc. as placed within their virtual home. The user can virtually place furniture in their homes, examine different furniture placement styles and make an informed decision before making a purchase. The techniques also enable testing smart home device automation behaviors in the virtual home. The use of virtual reality offers an immersive experience by allowing users to interact with a digital environment in three dimensions.
