Steve Jobs once said, “Design is not what it looks like, design is how it works.”

While all designers and architects are working towards increasing the aesthetic appeal and usability of homes, no one knows your needs or lifestyle better than you. It’s important to consider these time-tested design practices before you dive into setting up home.

  1. Maintain the workflow Golden Triangle in the kitchen: Especially for one-cook kitchens, it’s essential that the layout of the space is planned for easy workflow and maximum efficiency of available kitchen space. It all depends on the layout of the three most used spaces — cooking (stove/oven), preparation (sink), and food storage (refrigerator). Make sure there isn’t any major traffic flow through the central hub of the kitchen. Don’t let a tall unit or appliance come in between two focal points. Also good to know:
  • All sides of the triangle should be more than 1.2m long and less than 2.7m long
  • The sum of all sides of the triangle together should equal between 4m and 7.9m

  1. Make height considerations before installing cabinets: For all modular units being installed in your new home, ensure all the flap-up units stay below 7’ in height. This will ensure easy everyday access and applies to kitchen cabinets and other storage units.

  1. Get rid of the tangled mess of wires behind the TV: The entertainment zone in your living room is bound to have many things plugged in — TV, DVD player, speakers, set top box, gaming consoles and more. That’s a lot of wiring! We recommend you get wall panelling done for your entertainment section so that the tangled mess of wires is out of sight. What’s more, it’s easy to clean and adds character to the room.

  1. Hinged versus sliding wardrobes for small spaces: Urban homes are becoming smaller and it becomes challenging to make every inch count. As far as bedrooms go, make sure your room dimensions are equipped to handle the shutter width of your wardrobes. Often, people wind up with wide doors on the wardrobes in small rooms, restricting movement and occupying a lot of space. If you want to stick with a hinged wardrobe, just add more doors to decrease the width of each. We recommend sliding doors for smaller rooms if you’re willing to pay a slightly additional cost. It will prove effective over longer periods of time.

  1. Declutter the seating arrangement in your living spaces: This one tip can go a long way in ensuring you have a more spacious room with an open and fresh vibe. When we add too many elements or pieces of furniture, chances are, you will keep bumping into them and the room ends up looking cluttered. Stick to the less-is-more approach and you’re good to go.
