How to Design a Home for Every Season
“I’ve always loved how the design of the house depends on what’s happening around it,” says Jilli Rochon, a designer and founder of Rochons home design and marketing agency.
She started her career designing homes for people at a very young age, but she’s been thinking more deeply about the home as she ages.
“I’m not interested in a certain type of home, I’m interested in the home that I want to live in,” Rochont says.
“The idea is to help you understand what you need to have in your home to make it your own, and the home you want to make.”
What you need in your house: You need a big room for all of your needs.
You need room for a backyard, a patio, a deck and a living area.
You also need a place to put your clothes, but that’s not a problem for an entryway, so long as the room is large enough to accommodate a dining table.
You want your home’s entrance to feel spacious, but also cozy, inviting and inviting.
You can build a cozy living room that can accommodate a big screen and a desk with chairs or an open-plan kitchen with a sink.
You don’t want to have an entrance that’s too big to fit the space in your living room.
You’ll need space to set up tables and chairs.
You may need to get creative with where your furnishings and furniture are placed in your room.
The layout of your home will need to match your tastes and needs.
Your bedroom, for example, may need a smaller kitchen with space for a coffee table or a smaller living area with more seating for a couple.
If you want a more intimate space in the bedroom, you may want to get rid of the large couch you already have in the living room and get rid with the TV.
You might need a larger living room for your children to share with their grandparents.
And if you have kids, you’ll need more space for them to sit and play.
There are lots of ideas out there for making your living space more spacious and inviting, but these three simple ideas will work for almost any type of space.
“If you’re in the market for a new home, and you’ve got a great idea for a living space, but it’s too large, and it’s not large enough for your kids, then I would say you need a new room,” Ruchon says.
Rochond says her inspiration for designing a home with more space came from a trip to China when she was a child.
“They didn’t have the space for kids in a nursery,” she says.
But Rochonda wanted to give the room a bit of extra room for her kids to play.
“In the end, they ended up putting an indoor play room on the ceiling,” she recalls.
“That was a real breakthrough for me, because I didn’t want it to be so cramped.”
Rochondo says her most recent home design project involved adding a second entryway into her home.
“My kids like going into the living space and coming out of it, so it’s a great addition to the house,” she explains.
“And they love the extra space in there.”
Ruchons advice for anyone considering a new house design: “You want to think about what you’re going to use your house for, and then what’s going to happen in the house once you move into it,” Roshont says, adding, “There are tons of different designs that you can have.
And you don’t need to make a house for every season, you just need to try out a few different ideas.”
Rachonon says the biggest challenge she’s faced designing a new design for a home is making it fit your lifestyle.
“There’s a lot of pressure that comes with that.
You have to be flexible,” she adds.
“But the important thing is that it fits your lifestyle, and your family’s lifestyle, so you can keep changing it until it fits you.
And then you just want it beautiful.”
