Tips for interior design and sharing at home
Do I need a table of 6 people in a house where only my partner and I reside? Would it be better to have a more spacious and participatory room considering that we are 6 in our home?
Like these questions, many arise depending on who lives in the house. And it’s importat know about tips for interior design.We could throw a whole infinite battery of questions, however these should be asked by each family or inhabitants of the house to be able to make according to what decisions.
To determine them, it is important to take into account key points such as the number of family members, their ages and routines, whether it is a first or second residence, professions of the person living in the home, etc.
It can also happen that for reasons of personality we like to share and frequent the common areas, or that you have so many friends that your house is more similar to an embassy. We all know someone like that!
1. Prioritize spaces
This point is important to determine before starting the interior design proposal. If for our customs we frequent more the common areas, providing them with more space and comfort will improve our day to day, thus prioritizing them in front of the private areas. In this way we will have a more collaborative housing.
In our trajectory as interior designers and designers we have encountered very different types of families.
Although it seems a minor detail, since in the end as professionals we must stick to the script chosen, knowing how it is and what customs they have helps us to take into account certain details.
That is why communication and good predisposition must always reign between the client and the professional, because the possibilities are extended when everyone walks in the same direction.
2. Reduce walls and bet on open spaces
For those whose privacy is overrated this would be a key point. Sometimes a poor distribution of origin limits the possibilities of a home. It would be good to ask whether all the walls are really necessary or if, by making a logical and technical proposal, some could be dispensed with and have more open and open spaces.
Houses with open spaces emanate an unmistakable feeling of oxygen, calm and freedom.
Open spaces does not mean large dimensions, we must know that there are several concepts that act independently of useful meters.
Broadly speaking, there are three main characteristics to follow; proportion, rhythm and balance. If we establish a correct symbiosis between these three elements taking into account the original dimensions and structures, we could affirm that it would be a good starting point for interior design.
3. Share on the table
Although it seems an unimportant aspect, the tables also play their role in terms of family habits. If space is available, betting on a round table improves integration, because at all times we have eye contact with all diners and it gives us a greater sense of community.
These are also highly recommended for small spaces, since circular shapes allow us to have practical and small tables. And at the other extreme, if the table is large or medium-sized, it should be borne in mind that the center of the table becomes useful or almost always unusable.
There are an infinite number of round table designs and a wide range of possibilities in terms of their characteristics, such as those that focus on the shape of the legs or supports.
We have seen in recent times how the legs in the form of crossed mikado are a trend, as is the case of our Victoria table, however, if what is sought is space optimization and avoid accidental silly blows, we definitely recommend the tables with central foot
