Designing The Perfect Room

There is going to be a specific room in our homes that we want to be just perfect.  This will either be the first room that people walk into when they enter your home or it will be a room that you use all the time.  No matter what room it is, you want to make sure you design the room perfectly.

Flooring

The flooring of the room is going to be key.  The floor will help set the tone and frame the way the rest of the room looks.  When it comes to having a wood floor, most people will prefer a higher quality of wood that shines in the sun.

Layout

The layout of the room will also help determine what it is you are doing.  If you are going to have a wide-open space, then you want to have larger areas that stand out.  If the room is going to be smaller, find a focal point that you will be where you put most of your time and effort.  From there fan out and develop the look and feel of the room.

Lighting

What is the lighting going to be in the room?  What is the direction of the lighting and what will it be focusing on?  The way light plays in a room will also help with the design.  If you are going to have a lot of bright light then you will want to have the room reflect that with lighter colored flooring and wall colors.  If you don’t have a lot of light, you will want to see where the light falls and where it doesn’t make those brighter areas.

Play around with it

At the end of the day, play around with the room.  Don’t be afraid to experiment and see what different things you can do.  Eventually you will stumble upon the perfect configuration for the room.
