1 BHK Home Interior Design – Functionality

Functionality means how will something work, what facilities you require inside your home. Here we care about how something will work instead of how it will look.

Bathroom & Kitchen have more functionalities then living room & bedroom. Every room has set of functions to perform, or say set of facilities to offer.

For example Bathroom has below functionalities :

  • shower
  • WC
  • Wash Basin
  • Mirror with good light
  • Hot & Cold Water
  • Flooring Anti-Skid
  • Storage

Now these are common & must-have functions inside bathroom.

Depending upon your requirements more functions might get added. For example if you have senior in family, you require holding bar.

So depending upon your family need your set of functions will get bigger. Similarly Kitchen has to have set of functions, bedroom, living room etc. Basic Must have functions + more functions needed in your family.

Below are some Crucial functionalities that Home Owners should pay attention to while planning 1 BHK Home Interior :

Simple Storage
Sometimes homeowners try to get storage in to last inch of space. More complicated your furniture design is, more cleaning efforts will be required, more wear tear will happen. Always a good idea to go for simple furniture design.

Standard Dimensions
Everything inside house has standard dimension & best practice. Height of your sofa, height of your WC, space between bed & wardrobe, width of a door. Every home owner should buy a measuring tape & start understanding common standard dimensions.

Extra Electrical points
You are trying to save money but it is always good idea to have few extra Electrical points in all rooms, you never know when you would require new point. So have it.

Modular Furniture vs carpentry work
Modular Furniture is way to go. ONLY IF you have an extremely reliable & skilled Carpenter, you may consider carpentry work, but otherwise go for modular furniture. It will cost you 10% more, but it will give very good finish & save time.
