How do home furnishing experts study an interior space?

Monday, August 14, 2006

Dear friends, have you ever entered an empty room,
without any furniture in it. Such a room always looks
spacious, but lacks a "personality".

The moment you start adding some furniture, the space
starts to attract a face on itself. Depending upon the
volume of the objects being put, the space gets altered in
a dynamic fashion.

A typical home consists of a living room, bed room(s), kitchen,
toilet blocks, family room, study room etc.. All these
spaces have their own specific function from the user's
point of view.

When these spaces get furnished the previous identity of
an empty space get blocked by the objects being placed.
The face of the furniture object, is the new face of the
room. Whenever you enter these rooms, you see the new face
first, since the furniture occupies quite a bit of floor
and wall space.

Any habitual space also has one more important aspect
attached to it. Every habitual space always has windows
as a necessary functional arrangement. Depending upon the
function of the room the space can have doors as well.

These openings in walls create a kind of attachment of the
interior space with outside natural world. This is a very
powerful aspect in any design project. If the outside flora
and fauna is densely populated with natural elements such
as trees, water, mountains, this reflects clearly and
directly on the choice of furniture the designer would
make in the inside spaces.

If the home is located in a crowd urban cityscape, the
choice of design theme would be different. The choice
of furniture is directly related to comfort level of every
individual. Selecting furniture which goes with the
entire theme as well as satisfies the person on the
comfort scale can change the way the room feels.

So the personality of an interior space is largely dependant
on what's happening outside the space, rather than the space
itself. The outside events such a presence of seashore,
flowing river, mountain ranges, snow falls, or even a
highway full of traffic can greatly alter the furnishing.

For example if your home is just next to a busy street, you
might want to use cane curtains on windows which would
cut-off all the noise easily. So the use of curtains has
altered the face of the room to some extent and thus forces
the designer to make appropriate choices for other objects
in the room, which would easily merge with the texture,
color, finish of the cane curtains.

On the other hand if your home is on a sea shore, you
might go in for curtains which block the heavy wind, but
don't block the beautiful view. Here again the room would
have a different face and the entire theme makes a shift
on itself.

I hope this article was helpful for everyone.
