The important things to remember when designing a home | Art of Clean

The first thing you should think about when designing your home is to understand how you are going to use the space and what you're going to actually use it for.  

In design terms this is called 'zoning', not to be confused with 'zoning-out', as that's something very different.

The approach to redesigning a living room is very different to designing a bedroom.  A living room could be constituted as more of a public space, in other words everyone in your family uses it , including your friends.  Where as a bedroom is very private, so you have to work out what each room means to you and that's how you'll get the best design out of each room.

We've all done it, torn pretty pictures out of a magazine and thought that is how I want to live, but it's suggested that you sit down and work out how you live, consider the children and if you have a nanny and how do they want to live in the space.  Keep that rule in mind as the most important thing to do when planning your home.

And then you can get creative and with all the images you've collected over the years, along with the sample fabrics and paint colour charts and stick them onto a mood board.  Now you need to give yourself a bit of time, usually a couple of weeks so you can make changes to your mood board.  And then everytime you go back, it's quite good to have a second look and take things off. You'll see things differently over time and notice things that you didn't see before.  Once you're happy with the final colour choices and fabric scheme etc, set it out onto a design where you'll cost it. 

But the most important thing is to remember how you live in that space.
