Home Decor: Kitchen
As the hub of the home, the kitchen is the room with all the action. It's not just the place to prepare and cook food — it's also used for entertaining guests, storing gadgets and eating family meals. Your design needs to accommodate all these activities, which is why kitchen remodels are more popular than ever.
Home Decor: Living Room
Depending on your home layout, your living room can serve many different functions. If you have a family room, it is often a formal sitting area or parlor used for reading, relaxing and entertaining guests. If it's the only living space you have, it's also used for watching TV, playing games and spending time with family. Regardless of its purpose, any good space has a comfortable sofa or sectional, a coffee table and a focal point, such as a fireplace or entertainment center (maybe even both!).
Qualitative Lighting Design
Light plays a central and manifold role in the design of a visual environment. Work and movement are only possible when we have light to see by; architecture, people and objects are only visible if there is light. Apart from simply making our surroundings visible light determines the way we perceive an environment, influences the way we feel and the aesthetic effect and atmosphere in a space.
Management during the Design Phase
Project cost and time control actually begin during the design phase. In the initial design stages, estimates such as annual cost to the owner and total life-cycle costs of the facility are made. Technical job standards are weighed against cost, function, maintenance, and appearance with the objective of minimizing the full cost of constructing, operating, and maintaining the new facilities over their useful life.
