Many home owners feel helpless on keeping their living areas clean and cluster free. Troublesome to keep the living tidy daily is a unachievable tasks to many of us. This make us feel desperately not able to inviting friends for gathering at our home.
One solution is to have a separate guest and family living. This will be easier for us to maintain a comfortable guest living for visiting guests.
For small home with limited space, it is a good alternative idea to treat our dining area as family living too while having the main living as guest living room.
Well Thought Out Space Planning
Let us explore various ways to create separate guest and family living. First and foremost, we will need to determine a correct space planning and furniture layout for these two areas.
One main guideline is to visualize the walking flows around the guest living and family living areas. This will help us to determine the appropriate position for main furniture like TV cabinet, storage cabinets and sofa seating.
Try avoid placing things on the main walking flow zone to ensure smooth free flows between both living areas and adjacent areas like dining area, lounge and stairways. This will increase the comfortable and interactive ratio between these areas too.
Space Planning is the Key to achieve comfortable bedroom setups
Base on the existing bedroom set up by developer such as room shape, doors and windows position, we proposed a new timber divider at the middle of the room to define the room space into 2 activities zones. As a result, we can easily access the walk in wardrobe and bathroom at the right hand, or the sleeping and study area at the left hand area while walking in from the bedroom door.
This is a bedroom for a professional young man. So we positioned the bed set and working table near the window for maximum natural light at the sam time ensuring an unobstructed the walking flow in the bedroom.
Kitchen is one of the main area in our beloved home where is the place we spend a great portion of our time while we are at home.
A well design kitchen can be a multi purposed space that we can carry out many different activities here. For instances, we can treat it as our quick breakfast place. Mom can invite neighbor for a social chit chating while sharing baking session together right at kitchen too.
Family members can use bar counter at kitchen for study place or ad hoc working area too with a cup of coffee and great background music as complement.
Soho Unit has been converted mostly for airbnb home stay in Malaysia. Yet the small build up areas of soho unit actually is a good paradise for young citizen to treat it as private home or weekend home as well.
