SPACE STANDARDS IN INTERIOR DESIGNING
Interior design depends upon the relationship of the following three aspects:
The given space is always fixed. The area and dimensions cannot be changed except marginally. however narrow spaces can be made to look spacious by providing mirror walls. It is only an optical illusion and does not increase the real space. When the space is inadequate and small, minimum area should be provided for circulation or movement of the people.
Activity is the task that is going to be performed in the given space. Normally an interior design is asked to design within given space. The given space may be adequate or inadequate. If the space is inadequate, then the activity should be squeezed within the given space without affecting the efficiency of the activity.
Ex: railway compartments, aeroplanes and ship for squeezing an activity within a given space
- To perform any activity within a given space, some furniture is required.
ex: in a dining room: dining table and chairs, etc.
- Based on the available space and number of persons to be accommodated, the size and shape of the dining table should be decided.
Similarly for a bedroom :- the bed and wardrobe should be properly planned.
