Considering a Substantial home Renovation? Here's Why It's Important To Begin Designing the Spaces With the Furniture in Mind.

Renovation Planning & Interiors | July 24, 2020 | Home & Real Estate


The architectural design of a space is important. However, creating the right interior spaces in your home is a bit more than just the architecture. Renovation Planning & Interiors knows the furniture layout should be at the forefront of the designer's mind. We’ve all been spending a lot more time together in our homes than ever before.


There is a renewed interest in flex spaces that work equally well solo and for family activities. A successful space should adapt to all these moments. A detailed furniture layout is a significant part of laying out the space from the beginning. So often in the architectural design process, it can become an afterthought. For example, assuring the fit of a standard-sized sofa, creating a seating area for conversation, including ample space for a children’s study area or a private space to curl up and read a good book. These are best defined in the beginning architectural-design phase. Furniture layout and even early-thinking on color, texture and form, makes for a home that best fits the occupants' lifestyles.
