Architectural design offers the opportunity to enhance any space in a unique and special way. With that said, there are a few simple yet often overlooked architectural design tips worth considering. For example, one of the most basic and most essential parts of any architectural design project is to simply think ahead. Thinking ahead, and planning ahead when redesigning any room in a home or office will ultimately result in a more impressive and more complete “finished” product.
More Attractive And More Functional
Another often overlooked yet essential part of any architectural design project is to always ensure that storage is incorporated into the design. One of the biggest mistakes planners and architectural designers make is to simply not allow for enough storage. Taking full advantage of every bit of space in a room can ultimately result in a more attractive and more functional finished product. From overhead cabinets that reach to the ceiling to extra deep drawers that allow for more storage options, planning ahead with regard to storage can enhance any interior design or renovation project.
Under Cabinet Lighting
In addition, lighting is an important aspect of any architectural design project and should never be overlooked. Overhead lighting as well as the proper placement of electrical outlets should be well planned and well thought out. Every fine detail when it comes to lighting should be considered. This includes even how shadows will be cast throughout a room. Kitchens are particularly susceptible to poor lighting. Plan ahead when designing a kitchen to ensure that under cabinet lighting, canned-lighting and other types of task lighting are carefully incorporated into a project.
Good Architectural Design
Another important concern when it comes to architectural designing is to ensure that the right type of electrical power is available in rooms that require different sources of electricity. For example, a kitchen, utility room or even an outdoor-deck may require a 220 outlet or other specialized types of electricity. Working carefully with an electrician well in advance of beginning any project can ultimately make a big difference in how functional and how enjoyable a room actually becomes. Finally, a good architectural design project will typically incorporate a generous amount of counter space. This includes kitchen projects, bathroom projects and even outdoor patio spaces.
