One of the most fundamental aspects of interior design is space planning.
Whether the space in question is a studio apartment, a large home, or a commercial office building, space planning ensures optimum functionality in an aesthetically pleasing environment. The result is a space that feels both natural and surprising at the same time.
Our team creates a scaled floor plan of your space, whether it’s a single room, an entire home, or an open-plan office. This map helps us determine the type and placement of furniture and other objects that promote the functionality of the space, making maximum use of the area while ensuring it looks appealing.
This requires an understanding of the space’s function, how many people typically inhabit it, and the type of mood you prefer the area convey. For example, designing a space plan for a family living room is dramatically different from planning an office space, although the steps to accomplish both are the same, for the most part.
Consulting with the client helps our team understand the feelings you want to convey in a space. Do you have particular requests regarding furniture, lighting, and design style? Is there a preferred focal point for the room?
If this is a workspace, is your goal increased productivity, or are you more interested in promoting a creative environment? Do you expect your organization to grow? An office plan must create an environment that both impresses clients and promotes productivity, without wasting space, while also leaving room for expansion. It sounds like a tall order, but Design to Reflect thrives on planning the perfect space for clients.
With your input, we begin filling in pieces of the floor plan, similar to assembling a jigsaw puzzle, making optimum use of the available space so that it flows well and looks natural. Every item goes into the scaled floor plan, and we may create several versions until we arrive at the perfect plan.
Of course, space planning is only step one in the interior design process. With the perfect plan in hand, we then begin the work of creating your perfect space. Ready to begin? Contact us today to schedule your consultation.
