What is Interior Design?

So what is Interior Design? Interior Design means how to design a MODEL  and LAYOUT for a room so it meets the needs and desires of the owner.

What is Interior Design?

There are several things that should be considered while designing a room:

1. Room Functionality
We need to know what the function of the room is, such as a karaoke room, dining room, study room, etc.
2. Furniture Model
All things in the room are called FURNITURE, such as cabinets, chairs, tables, panels, beds, and shelves.
3. Material Quality of Furniture
The furniture quality can be seen at the furniture finishing, such as fabric, wood surface, etc.

Three points that I mentioned above, can help you to create a comfortable room that make the owner feel comfort in doing the activities in the room.

What is Interior Design and Why You Should Learn?

Interior design is useful yet powerful. Many things can be achieved with interior design, including:
1. Efficiency
A small-size room for example, can be made to a comfortable room with the
dimension setting or model and size of the furniture.
2. Atmosphere
Rooms with well designed interior are able to bring the atmosphere / different feeling every
time we enter it, which can make the owner feel warm, or even feel proud when there are guests enter the room.
3. Identity
Room with a good design has the identity that can be differentiated by the other room – for example we can clearly see a difference between “Living Room” and a “Family Room”.

Until this part, I guess you will ask this: “How can I have a room that fit the above criteria?”
There are several ways to get a good interior design, such as:
– Look at interior design books
– Ask for an Interior Designer
– Find interior design ideas online, as you see in this blog.

By reading interior design books / interior design blogs, they will help you to create a great inspiration and ideas on how to create your “own” design.

However, after get the idea, the next question is: How to make it happen? Does my room fit with my idea? Can I change the material that mention in this book? I want this model, but can it be simplified? How to combine two models that I love into one room?

Well, actually this is the role of Interior Designers who have the deeper knowledge about interior design.

A Good Interior Designer will help you to:

– Realizing these ideas into your own room.
– Set a budget according to the owner desire.
– Suggest a good furniture finishing, and the last is..
– Make it happen.

Corner Computer Desk – Making the Most of the Space in Your Home

Corner Computer Desk – More and more people are working from home these days, and even more regularly use a home computer on a daily basis for shopping, socializing, and a wide variety of other uses… The trouble is, many of us don’t have the space to dedicate a whole room to a home office, and instead try to cram the computer into the smallest space possible. A corner computer desk could be your ideal solution.

Specially designed to maximize the use of space, whilst remaining as unobtrusive as possible, there are a wide variety of corner computer desks available to meet a range of needs.

What sort of corner computer desk is right for me?

Before searching for an office desk, ask yourself a couple of simple questions:

    • How much space do you need? Will the desk be used for a desktop computer, or a laptop?
    • Would you like extra storage?
    • Would you like to be able to shut the computer away?
    • Would you like the desk to have cable runs, so you can tidy away the cables to you computer? How about a sliding tray for a keyboard?
    • What style would suit blend in with your existing furniture? A wood corner computer desk, or a more modern metal or glass one?

If you’re buying a desk now, ask yourself if it’ll meet your needs in the future – will you be buying more computer equipment; a bigger monitor; or need space for extra file storage? Thinking these things through now could eliminate the need to upgrade in the years to come.

Small desk, limited functionality… right?

Wrong. Just because the desk might be small, you’ll be surprised at what can be packed into it these days… it’s not unusual for a corner desk to provide space for a monitor, keyboard, computer tower unit, printer/scanner, disks, and filing.

Shutting away the home office

If space is at a premium in your home, you may end up with an L-shaped desk in your lounge or bedroom. This is fine while you’re spending your day working, but at the end of the day you may want to forget about work, switch off and relax – many corner desks allow you to do this. Simply close the doors and you’re left with what appears to be a cupboard unit, hiding your office equipment away until the next time you need it.

Buying online?

As with buying all pieces of office furniture online, check first with the seller about their delivery charges – office computer desks can be heavy and as such usually attract a premium delivery charge. If you need to bring the desk through an area of restricted access, make sure you check the dimensions before ordering. While you’re looking at home office equipment, you might want to check also the option of assembling the furniture by yourself since this might save you some money. IKEA for for example offers plenty of computer desk types.
