This is Episode 8 of Season 1.
This season has been all about what matters most in designing your new home or renovation.
Many homeowners dream of a home that feels spacious. And they fall into the trap of believing that this means their home has to be bigger.
And it’s understandable. Especially when we’re renovating or building family homes. Often the need to renovate or build will be brought about because we feel we need more space. This might be because of the addition of new family members. Or it will be because our existing family members are growing and becoming more active.
So ‘spaciousness’ becomes about creating ‘more space’ or ‘extra space’. Bigger rooms, and extra rooms.
There are a few ways to achieve spaciousness. Even in the most compact of homes. And not all of them are about ‘more space’ or ‘extra space’. In fact, it’s worth knowing that ‘more space’ won’t necessarily bring a feeling of spaciousness to your home.
Amelia believes that when our homes are designed well, they make our lives better. Simpler, more convenient, more beautiful, more fun. They work so well, and enable us to seamlessly integrate them into our everyday live. In short, our homes get out of our way. They support us being the best version of ourselves.
It may be hard to imagine this is possible if you’re living in a home that is a daily inconvenience. Where your home is another hurdle you have to overcome each day to go about your life of juggling family, friends, work and other commitments.
It is possible though. It’s actually the aim.
Listen to the podcast to learn how to use volume in your home to create spaciousness. Amelia will outline 3 mistakes homeowners make that are volume killers, and 4 fantastic design tips to get it right in your home.
