When planning any interior space, you not only want it to be beautiful – you also want it to be functional. For this reason, space planning may very well be one of the most important aspects of interior design and cannot be overemphasized. Without proper planning a room can end up awkward at best or disastrous at worst. Therefore, space planning can have a very strong impact on the success of a room.
All rooms are first and foremost functional spaces. Before you can create the perfect room, you need to focus on how you live so you can maximize your home’s potential. If the room does not meet its first critical criteria of functionality, it really won’t matter how beautiful it looks.
When working with high end interior designers you’ll need to begin the planning phase of your project by answering some basic questions about your needs and wants, as well as your creative ideas for each room.
Purpose and Function: Whether you’re designing one room or an entire house, you and your designer must be clear on the direction and purpose of the room. Is it to be a multi-functional space? Do you want a formal dining room or something cozier?
Focal Point: Regardless of the purpose for which the space is intended, it is important to remember that every room should have a focal point. Does the room have its own character, or do you need to incorporate one in the design?
Atmosphere: How do you want the room to feel, space-wise? Do you prefer open and airy, cozy, minimal?
Last Wishes: Ensure you carefully consider all your points and relayed them to your interior designer so that the space turns out the way you wished for.
Once you’ve established the purpose of each room, sit back and watch the master’s work. Your high end interior designers will transform a blank space into a beautiful, comfortable and tasteful home.
