Space Planning Living Rooms
I am currently playing around with my living room. It is really hard to make the space flow as you want to be able to do so many different thing sin the space. It is a also a room where people come and go from different doors and they need to be able to move around everything. There are so many aspects to think about when space planning a living room. Chris has done a small computer rendered living room video of space planning. It gives you an idea of how to use bubbles to work out spaces and circulation, then how to put it onto a plan. Watch it in full screen as the writing is quite small and it will make things clearer. There is also an article on our living rooms website called planning a living room.
What are stairs?
They are a means to pass from one level to another. There is a lot of jargon used around stairs, that can complicate things when you are looking to design, renovate or buy a staircase. Do you know what a riser is, or a tread, a balustrade, a closed stairway, a stairwell, pitch, or nosing? A riser is the vertical distance from one tread to the next, and the vertically faced board connecting the treads.
