Interior Design today is all about customizing your built environment with conceptual planning, aesthetic sense and technical solutions applied to achieve the desired result. It goes beyond just the visual or ambient enhancement of an interior space, it seeks to optimize and harmonize the uses to which the built environment will be put. Between you and me, this jargon simply means dressing up your closed spaces to make them look their best. And just as you would dress for the occasion, your interiors need to be "dressed up" for a specific intended purpose or use. And that is where technical expertise really helps.
Interior Designs should reflect your needs.
Each space is unique with its own dimensions, construction, design potential and, of course, - limitations. Are you going to use that space for work or leisure, entertainment or learning, worship or healing? Can you create the ambience that you wish to convey ? be it power, authority, wisdom, and achievement, a sense of security, playfulness or serenity, as required by that space?
Consider the practical aspects. Is access easy, lighting adequate, acoustics soothing, and seating comfortable? And have you worked out strategies for wise storage space without forgetting special needs ? especially health and safety? Sounds a wee-bit difficult, isn't it? Despair not! You as user are the only one who can come up with all the right answers. Look for interior design ideas ? they are available aplenty. It's just this small matter of putting things together judiciously. Who knows? There could well be a Le Corbusier hiding somewhere in your persona!
