WHEN DESIGNING A CUSTOM HOME, there are many design factors to be taken into consideration in the design development process of your New Custom Home. Such as a Custom Homes Toronto on a CITY LOT, the home size is limited to the zoning height, width & length allowances. Facing the sun is generally limited to the front or rear of the house depending what side of the street you’re choosing.
Of course if you are on a LARGER LOT for your new Custom Home & have a choice you can site the home the way you would like it; then thoughtfulness will apply. One of the key issues is making sure that the axis of the rooms will capitalize on the key focal views & sun direction. For example making sure the kitchen/breakfast room takes advantage of the sunrise in the East; Bedrooms are on the quiet side; Pool faces in a southerly direction; Living room is primarily an evening room and should have a view of the sunset in the West facing the pool and so on.
DETERMINING THE STYLE is very important when space planning & conﬁguring the room layout. Some simple examples: A Georgian house would be a basic rectangle & on the other hand a French Country home would be designed with additions tied together, giving the appearance of being added on over time.
SIZE gets combined with “Style” because again, Georgian would be basically equal on both levels; whereas a French Country home would be largely on the main level with secondary rooms situated on the second level, mostly within the roof line. These are simple examples & by no means cover the multitude of factors that go into designing an enjoyable Custom Home with the desired style & liveability.
SPACE PLANNING has to incorporate the room function, comfort & most of all the furniture requirements. Furniture placement layout is critical in determining the proper room size before ﬁnalizing the space plan.
