Let’s look at some design ideas that you can incorporate into your one bedroom floor plan:
Having a deck or a patio is a great way to increase space on your existing floor plan.
Incorporating a deck or a patio to your existing floor plan is also a great idea because it increases the equity of your home, additionally it also creates an additional “room” for your home where you can entertain guests.
If you’re someone who loves the outdoors, incorporating an outdoor living area can create synergy with nature where fusion can coexist between architecture and natural elements.
If you decide to go this route, you can add wooden structural elements like beams, or hardwood floors to really harmonize the interior space with the outside world.
It’s not surprising that open concept living has become all the rage in recent years. From a design perspective, closing off the kitchen, dining and living room area in a small home creates many nooks and crannies. This can leave a small home with many dark spaces.
When you’re working with a smaller home, it’s advisable to incorporate open concept living. Not only does it make the room brighter, it also makes the room look much bigger.
Rather than creating a cloistered environment, open concept living imbues comfort, openness and warmth.
The hanging loft concept is where a bedroom is suspended above the main floor. This is a great design idea for those that want added space to their one bedroom home. One of the best ways to do this is to incorporate high ceilings into your existing floor plan.
Many homeowners are incorporating this design element into their home and creating beautiful bedrooms that seem suspended in midair while increasing square footage. This is all done without compromising the house plan.
One of the reasons this design concept is so popular is because it allows you to add more features on the main floor of your house. It’s possible to incorporate a large kitchen, living area or even that spa bathroom you’ve always dreamed about.
Smaller homes have a tendency to absorb available light. That being said, there are a few design tricks that you can incorporate with mirrors to make your small home look bigger and brighter.
Before you design your floor plan, you need to think about the lighting you need to achieve functionality. Talk to your architect about basic lighting and then try and distinguish between functional and mood lighting for parts of your floor plan.
If you’ve decided to go with an open concept floor plan, some architectural features to incorporate are high ceilings, fewer interior walls, and numerous windows. Additionally, you could also incorporate glass elements to doors between the home and outdoor spaces.
Another thing to think about when you’ve drawn out your floor plan is the placement of sockets and switches. How will the placement of these elements work with light fixtures you plan on using in your home?
If this is done on the drawing board, it makes life much easier for all parts of the building process and stops you from going back to the drawing board to make changes if you don’t achieve your desired look the first time around.
