home design

Designing your home all by yourself can turn out to be a very exciting attempt. The process of home design is a complicated act, so there are some rules that you should keep in mind when trying to design your own home.

When working on a renovation or on a new home, professional designers are always thinking in 3D. They are taking away and integrating design ideas in a 3D form and in plan at the same time, constantly. This skill is instinctual, for some people, but it can very well be learnt over time.

Having a 3-dimensional thinking is a complicated skill to possess, especially when it comes to transforming your 2D home design plans into a good form and pleasing building in terms of aesthetics. Even if you possess this skill or not, it is essential to always have a clue about how your ideas will look as a resolved construction form, because there is a possibility, a risk, that your building will look like a plan with forced out walls and a roof stuck on.

If you want to use more than two sorts of external cladding, you must be very careful, especially at the same elevation (plane). Research precedence to see if the materials you want to use work together, because, if they donโ€™t, it could end up in some water leaking inside the house and a messy facade. Make sure that the material connections are detailed like they supposed to, and also make sure that the constructor figured out how these materials will go with one another while they perform their crucial waterproofing characteristics. The construction types you choose must suit your building style, site, and of course, your budget. You will have to begin to think about construction types (during the design phase) to make sure your building form will look similar to the type of building you are envisioning and that it will be affordable.

Using unsuitable building types can conclude in a high-priced building foundation and it can make the home lose that light weight look you were searching for.
Seriously considering things as symmetry, repetition, and proportion is what makes a home design successful. What you must understand before committing to the design is the fact that the building should not look too big or too small (out of proportion), that symmetry assures the building a visually comfortable look, and that visual strength is provided by repetition (doors or windows).

Be aware of deck sizes and locations! Another rule you should keep in mind is that placing decks in unsuitable areas can lead to the decks not servicing their intended purposes. If the decks are not located in the bedrooms, unless there is a kitchenette close by, they will rarely, if ever, be used. Decks facing the windows can ruin the view because you will be looking through flooring and balustrades. Their size is also very important: decks that are less 2000mm cannot be used.
