Building Your Home With Interior Design in Mind
In the very old days, homes were usually built with non-specific floor plans. The entirety of the home was laid out in rooms, but the intended purpose of those rooms changed: they were blanks. A few decades ago, homes changed. Rooms started being built for specific purposes, such as bedrooms, reading rooms, and studies. As you build your home, you might want to consider your interior design.
The Beauty of 3D Renderings
Today, many project management companies can display a full interior design using 3D renderings. 3D renderings let you "walk" through a property digitally and see where everything is going to go. You'll be able to figure out where your couches, televisions, beds, and end tables all fit together before your home is even built, and that gives you more freedom and flexibility.
Blocking Out Areas
If you don't want to do 3D, or if it doesn't feel right to you, go to a large open space and use chalk or tape to outline rooms. This will give you a better perspective of what each size of room looks like and where everything will go. You can go to your developer's model homes and do something similar with painter's tape. You'll know immediately whether the rooms are laid out right for the things you want in them.
Looking at Magazines
Magazines, online and offline, give you a good idea of what type of interior layout you want. Work with an architect to find the room layouts that will work well with the interior designs you love. For instance, you might want an interior design that focuses around a large fireplace and mantel—that's something that would need to be planned architecturally.
