Our lives are changing everyday. As a result, there has never been more of a demand for designing your home around your needs. For instance, some people are moving to larger homes from busy cities. Their need to furnish extra rooms with furniture, to scale with their new home is important. On the other hand, some people are moving from larger suburban homes to condo’s or townhouses. They need to downsize the amount and scale of their furniture and accessories.
Interior Design is the study of Designing around Your Needs
Great design starts with a floor plan. Therefore, if you are moving from a two or three-bedroom apartment in NYC with 2000 sq. ft. to a larger suburban home of 4500 sq. ft. and up. Your furniture wouldn’t be on the same scale and size of your new home. Also, colors look different in the country then they do in the cities. As an interior designer working in both New York and Naples FL, I know just how different color is experienced in both locations. Planning out the location of all your families design needs. Before you move into your new home will go a long way in creating a lasting design everyone can live with comfortably.
Now imagine it the other way around. The children are all grown up and moved out on their own. In addition, you and your husband are thinking of selling the big house and /or are approaching retirement. You want to travel more so a condo with no outdoor maintenance sounds heavenly. Your larger scaled furniture may not work in your sleek new condo. However, if you are working with a floor plan you can see just how everything will or will not fit.

re Design Needs
If anything has become more apparent recently has been how important our homes have become. Above all, they are our place to unwind, relax, and find comfort. But they have also become our home office, our children’s home school, your yoga studio or exercise room, and the full-time family dining and TV watching location.
Thinking about your home and the multiple uses we have for each room. In other words, designing a home you feel comfortable with, that works for you and your family, and is designed around your needs.
