Example text

Are you formal, or more relaxed? How tidy are you (be honest)? Consider the architecture of your home, and its location, too – an Art Deco seaside home suits a different style to, say, a Georgian townhouse, while a rural cottage lends itself to yet another look. Architecture aside, however, you should also think about your own taste and personality. When you flick through a book or magazine, watch a television programme or walk round the shops, what styles appeal the most? Do you yearn for a romantic retreat, full of ornaments and pretty colours, or hanker after a tough, industrial look in minimal black and grey?

2 When creating an open-plan kitchen, dining and living area, you will either need a separate utility room or a super-quiet dishwasher and washing machine. A lowdecibel extractor over the cooker is vital, too. 3 In any room that has more than one function, the furniture needs to blend from one area to another. Create an overall style that works as well for comfy seating as it does for kitchen units. 4 Delineate areas within the open-plan space by varying paint colours and using clever lighting – different circuits are best, controlled by switches or dimmers.

Designing a room layout ▶ Measure the room as carefully as possible, and draw a scaled-down plan of it (as if you were looking from above) on graph paper. Draw in the current positions of windows, doors, built-in cupboards, radiators, plug sockets and light fittings. ▶ Think about whether all the architectural elements are in the right place. Perhaps it would help if you took down a wall, moved a radiator, re-hung the door so it opens the other way, or added some extra plug sockets?
