Home plan: how to share volumes

The construction of a house must be well thought out both in terms of its overall design and the layout of the rooms. It is necessary from the beginning to share the pieces by adopting the right volume for each. Our tips for delineating your parts.

The delimitation of rooms on a house plan

As a general rule, a house has a day time and a night space. Some will also enter a workspace if they work at home.
These spaces are to be defined on the house plan for optimization of the construction and thus reduce the loss of surfaces. Determine all the parts you want before you start delineating the pieces.
To delineate your surfaces, you can either take appropriate software or shift the plan of the exterior walls of the house taking care to separate each level.
Your parts must be functional and useful.
Try to keep the night game intimacy when you arrange your rooms, avoiding the passages regularly frequented by your family or friends. For example, rooms should not be close to a hallway that leads to the garage, or a hallway between kitchen and living room, ...
Sharing surfaces in a house

For a level house, the traditional distribution is usually:

On the ground floor, the living rooms: the living room, the kitchen, the living room, a toilet. For comfort, you can provide an office room and a small shower area. Also provide clearances for storage space.

Upstairs, the night rooms: the bedrooms, the bathroom, a second toilet and storage rooms depending on the square.

The plan of a single-storey house must separate the different living spaces. The bathroom will preferably be placed between the parents' bedroom and the children's room for convenience and for better sound insulation of the rooms. The toilets will be installed between the night and day part always to preserve the privacy of the night space.

Once the parts are defined, here is an estimate of their surfaces:
  •     25m2 for the living room / stay
  •     15sqm for the kitchen
  •     10 to 15 sqm for each room
  •     9m2 for the bathroom
  •     2m2 for a toilet

These are medium surfaces for good freedom of movement. These surfaces are naturally to be adapted according to your budget and your overall home surface. It should be noted that the main room cannot be less than 9m2 or 20m3 and that the other rooms must be greater than 7m2 to be considered as such.

Tips and tricks for sharing spaces

In case of insufficient rooms and impossible extension, you can take the larger room and install Japanese panels or thin partitions in the center of it. This low-cost facility will be perfect for having two children's or teenagers' bedrooms. Cut down the walls of a house if they are not porters to open your kitchen on the living room and thus get a larger living space.
