We all love to have beautiful spaces but what is the point if they don’t function?

Space planning is an art that most designers have mastered but there are a few things you can do to help your space function for you.

Take a few days to see how your family uses the spaces in your home. Does your family need a formal dining room? What are the high traffic areas? Noting these things is the first step to space planning.

Let’s say you’re planning the living room. It’s where people gather and where your family spends a lot of time. A few tips: make the entire room walkable. It should be easy to get from one side of the room to the other. Also, have a surface for each seating area for drinks or snacks.

 

Warmly,
