When it comes to homes, whether you’re purchasing one, extending the square footage, or even just trying to do some interior design within the home it’s so important think about space planning. Everyone wants to have a home that is going to reflect their personality and their style. The home is where the heart is but that’s where the comfort and security lies as well. You want this place to reflect you, who you are, and you want to maximize it to it’s fullest potential.  You may not realize it but space planning can really make an impact on your home. It may have been something you were doing without even realizing it. Whenever you’re rearranging your furniture, adding décor to your home, or doing a complete renovation to a space you’re most likely putting space planning into consideration.  


What is space planning and why is it important? 

Space planning is creating a space that is used efficiently. This is organizing the furniture and decorative accents in a space where it’s functional and helps the flow. Essentially, it’s about making a space look and feel efficient. This is a practice that many architects and interior designers use, but this is commonly used by people at their homes by doing something as simplistic as rearranging furniture within the room. Having the right space is simply something that cannot be avoided as the home is a major part of your life. Space planning is going to allow you and everyone else in the home some calm within the surroundings. This is not only going to make the space look good, but has the impact of making the space work well. 


What to think about when space planning 

There are a lot of things that must be put into consideration when you’re planning out the space in your home. These are often questions that we will ask our clients. Space planning is all about making the space as comfortable and efficient as possible while still reflecting the overall personality of the household now and into the future. 


Here are some things to really think about: 


  • How long are you going to be in the house? 
  • Do you plan to live there for more than 10 years?
  • Do you plan to start a family at this house?
  • How compatible is the space for aging in place and is it wheelchair accessible?
  • How many people do you expect to live here?
  • Is it an ideal space for relationships?
  • Is the space pet friendly, such as for a dog?
