One of the best tips about using a basement for additional living space is to raise the ceiling. Adding an extra foot (or more) in the height of your basement ceiling is much less expensive than adding an additional floor or expanding the overall floor plan, and the added height will eliminate that closed_in feeling you get with so many basements.
What is 3D floor planning? Imagine being able to see your new home or development project without it even being built! That's what 3D floor planning can do for you. It's basically a virtual version of the home or development you plan on building or renovating, but it also gives you so much more. You are given a birds_eye view of the architecture, with ceilings removed so as to show you the layout inside the home or unit or development. 3D Floor planning is used by architects, developers and home owners as it helps to ensure you get the best results for your project. Within this virtual view of the home you can see walls, doorways and the way a property will flow, it is a very beneficial tool.
Take some time out to visit restaurants in your area, this is another simple way to look at samples of restaurant floor plans. Carry a notebook to take notes on the floor plan you are reviewing, go buy a cup of coffee, and analyze their floor plan and ask yourself again, what is good and bad about the floor plan and what would you change to maximize sales and minimize losses for their restaurant. In doing this you are getting ideas on what to do and not do to your own restaurant.
A home is the result of the homeowner's strenuous efforts in finding the right balance between costs, designs and spaces. Designing a home that is customized to suit a family's needs calls for a lot of careful forethought to include all the elements that are required without tilting the balance too much.
