As you may know, I'm in an interior design drafting class this quarter. I love it. This last Friday we received a new assignment. We were given this floor plan:
And must renovate accordingly:
The Gray's family are newlyweds and this is their first home! It's not too big, and they don't have children yet, so a small office area is sufficient. The goal is to make the space flow well and have it appear bigger than it is.
Keep all exterior walls, but completely rework the inside. (All interior walls are free game).
The porch must stay and the built in window seat must stay.
The windows can be moved.
There must be access to the backyard.
Only need to keep one eating area.
Must be at least one bedroom, one bath, with small office space nook or separate bedroom for den.
So, this is where YOU come in! I want to hear ideas! Where should I move the kitchen and living room? Should I do a great room (open floor plan)? Should I add a powder bath to add extra value to the house? I want all your thoughts! I have some ideas of my own, but I'm probably going to draft it multiple times before finding the perfect floor plan, so the more ideas the better! Come on ladies, tell me what ya got (:
Ready. Set. Comment!
