The best designs start with a lot of preparation. After all, before you even think about picking up a paint brush, you should have a solid design idea in mind. You should know what you want the room to look like, what it will take to achieve your vision and how much everything will cost. However, if you’re a little intimidated by this task, we’re here to help.
Duplexes are wonderful living solutions for urban environments, and this has been acknowledged as of late, the world over, from Manhattan to South Africa, Stockholm to Tokyo. Modern house design trends are especially visible in duplexes that have been remodeled from older dwellings - a two-story apartment in a historic building can receive a new lease on life, thanks to a few well-added design touches here and there. If you dream of the most elegant accommodation your city can offer, why limit yourself to a single story condo? Be inspired by previous designs, buy two apartments located one on top of the other and create your perfect duplex. There are plenty of successful such homes out there to inspire you.
Using a room as a corridor (hallway). We see this method use in the old shot-gun houses where you travel from the front room (usually the family room) through the bedrooms to the back (where the kitchen usually is). In this case, it is virtually unavoidable because the house is so narrow. Gallery style kitchens are used as corridors in tight design configurations also. These examples are the exception and not the rule when using rooms as a hallway.
Most people see this design concept as wasted square footage. However, if you live long enough, you will come to appreciate the home design and planning strategy of universal design. People who design their homes in this manner are simply planning ahead for their future. This design is actually a good investment that can help them save a lot of money in the future.
