When consumers purchase the interior building materials, they sometimes complain about the difference between the catalog goods and the real ones. This problem seems to be because of that when they decide to purchase the interior building materials, they rely only on the visual, not on the touch. In this study, we investigated physical parameters which have an influence on visual and haptic perception by sensory testing using various woody floor material. In addition, we analyzed the influence on the impression by physical parameters which influence the visual and haptic perception. The physical parameters from visual perception have “colors”, “surface gloss” and the physical parameter from haptic perception has “surface roughness”. As a result, it was found that human feelings are affected by the difference from visual and haptic perception and by kinds of physical parameters.
