Space Organization Introduction

Space organization is the essential starting point of creating your niche. As a guide, it involves giving thought to how you live and the relationship between well-chosen objects within any room without compromising its comfort.

Take a look at my space planning guide first before moving on.

Another point to note is that it is not only the objects themselves that help create the uniqueness but also the mass of void between them and the spatial dimension – the height of the ceiling in comparison to the flooring, the size of the windows and the doors.

Practical Tips on Organization

I’m a firm believer that a home’s interior also needs to be practical. The space needs to suit the personality and needs of its owners' pattern of living – although a new blueprint may develop as their tastes and situations change.

The first step when designing a furniture plan is recognize the characteristics and benefits of the room. A well-planned room greets its inhabitants with all the information they need in terms of comfort and hospitality. So a dining room set will say ‘eat here’, the upholstered furniture will say ‘sit here’ and so forth.

For a family that enjoys preparing food and entertaining, a simple solution is to have a kitchen and dining room adjacent to one another or, in a smaller space, a galley or ‘ship’s kitchen’ as part of the dining/living room. But if the family dines out exclusively, then they may eliminate the kitchen in favor of a clean counter-top.

Beautiful interior spaces also take into account:
