The Science Behind Space Planning for Interior Design Projects

Space planning is the crux of any kind of interior design projects. It is a distribution and allotment of the space as per the requirements and comfort of the client type.

With an increasing pattern of space occupancy around the globe, there has been a huge inflation in the cost of per square foot.

This intensifies the importance of “space planning” in the architecture and interior design to make it more useful.

A quintessential and thoughtful space planning brings out the major difference in the way you live or work.

In the residential space planning, you have to involve various crucial factors which would take it to the successful path.  For instance, you have a small bedroom to fit in your favorite bed, study table, cupboard and other furniture pieces.

How would you accommodate everything and still have a space to walk comfortably?  Similarly, if you clutter your living room with the glut supply of furniture, then you might end up messing with the free logical space and make your living room confined and restricted.

Moreover, an unplanned space allocation might not allow you to utilize the space for your interior as per the demands and needs. The only logical answer to this is space planning.

Space planning helps you utilize the area at its maximum potential efficiently keeping your requirements at priority.

People spend an immense amount of money in planning and styling their space as it is the most crucial step in shaping up your interior design.

“Every foot is worth a penny, we got to use it wisely”.

Space planning is equally important for both residential as well as commercial projects.

A perfect example has an intelligent space allocation, breathtaking interiors, and desired comfort.

Let’s understand the factors help you in achieving your dream project.

Space Analysis & Purpose

One should start any project with the analysis of the area and thoroughly understanding the purpose of that area.

In previous days, every room space was specifically designed for the special purposes. But now people like multifunctional spaces (even in residential homes) such as a kitchen with the dining area attached or a bedroom with the attached dressing room.

Firstly, you need to pick the measuring tape and learn the width, height, length or depth of the room. It helps you to exactly understand the measurements of the available working space.

We recommend you double check your measurements to avoid any errors. After this step, you get the time to understand and decide the purpose of the room keeping the current trends in mind.

Once you have decided the purpose of the area, this leads you to move on to the next step, selecting furniture based on your floor plan.

Select Furniture based on the Floor Plan

Now you need to create a floor plan based on the measurements along with the room design and furniture requirements.

For better space planning, you need to map the floor to get the clear ideas for selecting the right furniture.

A virtual floor plan helps you better in arranging your furniture pieces and gives you a liberty to analyze the empty space left.

What if the space left is not enough for you to walk around comfortably? What if you open the cupboard door and it is banging on your bedside table?

Or, whether you need to fit the couch for 2 or 4 people in your living room. You get the virtual view of judging whether you like the minimalist style or maximalist style.

In this step, you would realize the ways and the corners to place your furniture.

Equilibrium and Visualizing

You need to attain an equilibrium between creativity and comfort.

Whether it is for your home kitchen or the walking bay at your office, every corner needs a proper attention of space planning, design, interior, color choices etc.  

A visual appearance of the space should be in a way that it allures people at the first sight.

Achieving an ideal vision of the space is like composing a song of perfect lyrics syncing with magically the music.

For instance, when you walk into a dining place for the first time, you either love it or hate it. That’s where visualization plays its part.

Give Client’s Interest a Priority

A good interior designer would always understand the client’s personal style and preferences while designing the space and the interior.
