In 2022, make sure you steer clear of these 5 architectural mistakes
Every human has their own house planned in their head—much before one is actually capable of buying or building a house of their own, they have a blueprint of their house all set to go. Although eventually, the 'real blueprint' needs to come from an expert. As it goes without saying that we can't keep every important aspect in mind while being in our fantasy land. Therefore, homeowners must keep some important architectural aspects in mind before approving the final plan for the house.
Poor space planning
It doesn't matter if your planned house is a humble den or a mighty fortress, proper management of the space is often considered undemanding. Nobody can deny that ample storage is a necessity. However, the tricky bit is to be creative about deciding which space in the house should turn into storage without compromising too much with aesthetics or space.
A closet in each bedroom and in the main hallway should do the job for you. If you are planning to add a mudroom, consider adding cubbies or some other similar storage area. This will further enhance your spatial usage. However, don't spoil the living room with storage bunkers and closets, as it might ruin the aesthetic of the space.
Lighting could dramatically influence the overall mood and aesthetic of the place. However, people sometimes end up stressing a little too hard on artificial lighting and forget to make most of the natural light. Therefore, windows are to be installed in every room. Make them as large as possible. Proper proportioning of windows with proper blinds and window panes ensure the freshness of natural lighting.
Making vents and small windows further allows the proper exchange of air. Artificial lighting is equally important. Without overdoing the lighting arrangement, a calculated arrangement makes any room give the best vibe possible.
Over-accessorizing or over-theming the room
Over-accessorizing compliments over-theming. But it’s not always a great idea. Adding too much can ruin the very essence of the overall mood and theme of the place. In the modern-day, most experts suggest that a sense of minimalism must guide the act of accessorizing a room.
Too many things might grab all the attention and could even result in being distracting. Hence, shopping from the same store can become a problem. While doing so, you might grab a number of similar components that might make your room look over-themed. Bear in mind that a theme that defines you needs not the usage of excess to soothe down your senses.
Going overboard with family heirlooms and family photos
Nobody can deny family matters the most. So, family heirlooms and family photographs are bound to mean a lot. However, that doesn't mean they will go with the aesthetic of the room or the place.
The Victorian era clock or the gramophone has to be placed at such a position of the room where the vibe is not contemporary. Family photos too, need to be balanced with artworks and other wall designs.
Adding too much function to one room
A multi-purpose room, for example, one with a combined study and a bedroom or a dining room attached to a kitchen, is no doubt best for limited space. However, adding too many functionalities can make a room clumsy and make it brooding for a person. A well-planned room makes the best out of the space that is available for use.
Poor pre-construction planning and financial mismanagement make planning and building difficult. There are many other problems that we often overlook, such as exposed wires, pipes and outlets, too much minimalism, mismatched themes, improper HVAC systems, too many alterations to a particular thing —the list goes on. All these can be avoided through a proper ordering of the designing process. The best way to do so is to appoint an architect or a designer who will be able to guide the entire proceeding.
