1.Make the room approx 2:3 ratio-This not only makes the room look good, but improves the flexibility in usage
2.Try to consolidate doors-Try to bunch all the doors-from other rooms, external and internal-so that you have continuous furniture keeping space,
3. Alternate side windows-on opposite walls are the best-to create cross ventilation and health.
4.Kitchen Location-Should be opposite to prevailing wind direction.
5.Toilet Location-Should be away from kitchen and preferably on the cross wind corners.
6.L-shaped, long and irregular rooms impair the functionality of the house. Please consult your architect.
7.Try to scribble movable routes from room to room for all and ask your architect to minimize the circulation area.
8.Divide the house into 3 zones-Public, family and private. 1 & 3 should be exclusive.
