1 ROOM AND FURNITURE DISTRIBUTION Paula Vicent, Rachel McGeachie, Sophia Ryan Room Distribution- What´s important? Sunlight Air Circulation Logic of the Rooms Road Noise Open Floor Plan

2 Sunlight  Bedrooms, living rooms and kitchen areas should be closer to sunlight.  You have to think about where the sun is during the day and where you need sunlight  This way you can save electricity (lights, heating, air conditioning)

3 Air Circulation  This has to do with open floor plans and how your ventilation system should be placed.  Bathroom must have ventilation  Air should be able to circulate even if doors are closed.  Doors should not be right next to a window because air will just come in and go right out.

4 Logic of the Rooms  When distributing rooms in a house you should think about which rooms should be beside each other and which rooms should not.  Example: Kitchen should be next to the dining room but not next to a bedroom. Bathrooms should be close to bedrooms.

5 Road Noise  Bedrooms should be put away from the road so that you don´t get as much noise.

6 Open Floor Plan  When distributing a house you should think about not having too many walls when you walk in the door.  You should be able to see rooms when you first walk in and not just walls, this also helps sound to travel more easily. This is a closed floor plan. As you can see, you walk in and see a wall. This is an open floor plan, from the entry you can see most of the rooms in the house.

7 Necessity and Size of Rooms  The basic rooms in a house are kitchen, living room, bathroom and bedroom.  Dining room is not necessary because you can put a table in the kitchen or living room.  The living room should be bigger than the other rooms.  Normally master bedrooms are bigger than other ones because two people generally share it.  The size of other rooms varies depending on the scale of the house.  Example: Bedrooms should be on the smaller size and bathrooms should be small but not so small you feel cramped in.

8 Distribution of Furniture  The first thing you should take into account is the size, the proportion of the space, placement and distance between pieces of furniture.  Furniture should not be blocking any entrances or plugs.  You should be able to have a clear path to get to each piece of furniture.  It is also important that the distribution allows entry of natural light and a comfortable flow.  Choose a central point in the room and focus the rest of the furniture around it. It could be a couch a tv, a fireplace or a window.

9 A Different Way to Look at Furniture and Room Distribution: Feng-Shui  Feng-Shui is an ancient Japanese belief that you can balance a space’s energy by how you distribute the space.  It says that if the space has bad Feng-Shui it gives off bad luck and if it has good Feng-Shui it gives off good luck.  The main guideline for Feng-Shui are: Clean out your clutter, Have good air and light quality, Define the Bagua (Which rooms are connected to your life)  Feng-Shui is all about energy and relaxation within your home.
