Whatever type of space you are designing, similar principles apply when choosing a layout, colour scheme and aesthetic style. However, there are particular considerations and potential pitfalls that need to be taken into account when designing different types of spaces. For example, kitchens are used for cooking and storing food and so the layout needs to ensure a convenient space in which people can prepare their meals. An office environment will need to be practical and storage-focused, a bathroom needs to be designed with privacy and water resistance in mind and a bedroom should be a calm oasis. Living rooms offer the most flexibility. With experience, you will soon come to appreciate the specific questions to ask a client as you begin designing their new space. In addition to the intended purpose of a space, it is also crucial to think about accessibility issues. The UK Government has passed legislation and released in-depth documents, offering builders and designers guidance on how they can make sure spaces are accessible to all. Measures such as choosing door handles that are easy to open, selecting open-plan designs where possible and limiting the risk of sensory overload are just a few potential modifications that will produce inclusive spaces.
