How to organize the rooms in the house? Above all, your builder will have to understand your lifestyle, your habits, your needs and your desires. The land and the budget will also condition the surfaces and the addition or not of certain rooms. Objective: to have a well-appointed house, with a functional interior where life is good!
When designing the plan of your future home, the designer projects himself into the daily use that you will have of the different rooms. He distributes them for a fluid circulation between the different spaces, all this while optimizing the surfaces so that each square meter is useful.
The designer will differentiate the living spaces in the future home: day space (living room) / night (bedrooms, bathroom), parent / child space (parental suite separated from other bedrooms) and group the rooms into zones according to their functions. The day space will be separated from the night space to limit noise pollution and optimize heating management.
To distribute these different spaces, exposure to the sun will be an essential criterion. While it is common to think that a house must face south to benefit from the maximum light and heat offered by the sun, it is however preferable to orient the night part to the east or to the south. ‘West for a comfortable temperature beneficial to sleep. So-called service rooms such as the pantry, laundry room or garage may be exposed to the North.
To avoid the loss of living space, it is necessary to limit the corridors and other halls, also called clearances. Although sometimes unavoidable, they should only represent a small percentage of the living space and be used intelligently to include storage for example.
Likewise, making use of the space under a staircase will avoid wasted m², while a cupboard in the entrance to store coats, shoes and bags will optimize an entrance hall as well as possible.
Beyond the practical and aesthetic aspects, the design of the plans of a house must take into account the rules established by the standards in force (RT 2012 and soon RE2020). For example, for a room with a large volume and a ceiling height of more than 2.50 m, the heating requirements will not be the same as for a room with more standard dimensions. The use of increasingly efficient materials for insulation and the installation of large, well-oriented windows will naturally compensate for these heating needs.
When the designer develops the interior plan of the house, he must at the same time take into account the different exterior spaces: these will be the extensions of the interior of the dwelling. The terraces will be in continuity with the living rooms for easy movement between inside and outside. The parking of the various vehicles will be anticipated when drawing up the 2D and 3D plans for a rendering that is both practical and aesthetic.
Each future owner has his own specific amenities! Some people will want, in addition to the main rooms (kitchen, living room, dining room, bedrooms, bathrooms), additional rooms, for the practical side (garage, office, large laundry room …) or for leisure: sauna / spa , games, sports, music room or workshop
These bonus pieces will complete the existing one and give a more sophisticated aesthetic to the exterior appearance of the house. This is the case of the house below whose spa of 19 m² adjoining the parental suite, as well as the cellar and the garage of 71 m² between them create sets of volumes thanks to blocks optimized for optimal comfort. .
When the budget and / or the surface of the house are limited, it is essential to make the best use of every m². A minimum of clearances, an arrangement of living room optimized for the stay … Discover for example this realization of terraced house of 90 m² with a modern design that we have made comprising a living room of 47 m² and 3 bedrooms with closet in the floor.
For more conviviality, better circulation or to meet the wishes of the future owners of the new house, the designer can provide open spaces such as the kitchen open to the living room and the dining room in order to enjoy his guests when one receives. Conversely, rooms can be partitioned for more privacy.
The interior design is a subtle balance between practicality, aesthetics, energy savings / various standards and of course the lifestyle and wishes of future inhabitants.
