Smart Ways To Position Your Doors And Windows To Give Room For Better Sitting Room Arrangement.
Welcome to Plan market. Today i will be sharing with you smart ways you can position you doors and windows during your building development to give room for better sitting room arrangement.
Nowadays most building construction lacks proper doors and windows positioning. This may be as a result of oversight on the part of the designer or poorly design work.
Be that as it may, it is very important to check the position of your doors and windows before the actual construction.
I will be explaining with five different building illustration in other to give you a guide or clue on what to check out for and how you can arrange your sitting room
to give room for free movement to others areas of the building.
1 For a Square Sitting Room
The arrangement of doors and windows should be position in a way that at least two windows should be position in opposite direction to each other. Avoid positioning
windows in places where electronics is likely to be position.The doors should be position to align with the lobby door connecting the bedrooms and kitchen. The image below shows the arrangement of the sitting room and the positioning of doors and windows.
2. FOR A SITTING ROOM with large area of square meters.
CARE should be taken to position the windows adjacent to each other and remember to position the door in a way that will not affect the sitting arrangement.
The image below illustrate the best way to position a door and window that will create maximum comfort for the occupant of the apartment.
3.For a Two Bedroom Commercial Apartment.
Most commercial buildings in Nigeria are victims of this common mistake. At times the front door is position in a way that will not give free movement within the
sitting room environment you are considering building an apartment for rent always remember to position your front door in a way that it will be in the same
direction with the lobby door to create free space for the sitting room. An illustration is shown below.
4. For a Four Bedroom Apartment.
The positioning of the door and windows in an apartment that is pretty big enough depends on the shape and other factors. if you have a big sitting room and if it will
not be convenient to align the front door to the lobby door, try as much as possible to create a free walk way around the sitting room in a way that it will not interfere
with the sitting room arrangement.
This might not be too important to many home owners and builders but from my experience i really do not feel
comfortable seeing beautiful homes from the outside only
for me to go inside and discover i have to walk through the center of the sitting room before i could go to any part of the building.
To me i feel is not proper and is a common mistake that we normally ignore in building practice. If you are a homeowner take pain to find out the position of your
front door in respect to the lobby door. Check if the movement from one point to another is as free as possible. If not try planing it very well in your next House plan. Feel free to contact us for Free House plan tips before construction work commence.
