Create Your Oasis: A Guide To Custom Outdoor Living Spaces

by milton ferrara CEO

The design of an organized house begins well before the construction while the architectural plans are being drawn up. Small details must be considered because, in the end, they will make a big difference, bringing economy and comfort to your residence.

If you are still in the planning stage and are already concerned with the good use of rooms and rooms, read our article with everything you need to know before building your house. Following some design and civil engineering principles with Zenith Design + Build for example, in-built houses can make a difference. See the tips we brought to help you with the task of planning your home space:

1- Position The Rooms Thinking About The Solar Incidence

Imagine the following situation: your office faces west. Consequently, it will receive light more strongly from midday to dusk, the hottest period. Therefore, working in this location will likely cause discomfort and headaches.

Thinking about taking advantage of natural light in the planning phase of construction from scratch or from custom outdoor living spaces or just a renovation is one of the main factors determining whether you will have a good quality of life in the future in the environment. Not to mention the savings this can bring to your electricity bill!

2- Think About What The Ventilation Will Be Like

What's the use of not suffering from the heat in your house but feeling in a stuffy place? Taking Rio de Janeiro as an example, where temperatures and humidity tend to be high, taking advantage of natural ventilation is a great resource. It could even be said to be fundamental for life not only in this city but in Brazil as a whole, even more so if you consider the increase in electricity costs lately and you are thinking of saving by reducing the time that the air conditioning is on.

Have you ever heard of cross-ventilation? This type of ventilation involves placing gaps such as doors and windows in opposite or adjacent walls and in the orientation of local winds (e.g., north-south, east-west). Do you realize how good it is? If not, think that this way, you place the places for the entrance and exit of the winds in the direction of their flow in the region of your construction.

3- Don't Leave The Bathroom In Common Use Areas

Just imagine you receiving visitors, and you decide to shower at some point. When it's over, you wrap yourself in a towel and head towards your room, passing right by where the visitors are. Or else, take all your clothes to the bathroom and change clothes there. Both situations are unpleasant, agree?

A common mistake made when designing the layout of a house is to place the bathroom overlooking common areas. Care must be taken when planning your floor plan so that the bathroom door does not face the rooms or the kitchen. Ideally, it should be close to the bedrooms, in a hallway, for example, and if it's just one bathroom for the whole house, it should also have easy access for visitors. This way, you guarantee the privacy of those who use it and avoid discomfort for those present.

4- Group Wet Areas

Hydraulic installations account for 7% to 11% of the total value of the work. However, using some tricks, the cost of hydraulic piping can be reduced.

For this, wet areas, that is, bathrooms, kitchens, and service areas must be closed. In addition to this proximity, when two of these rooms are adjacent, sharing the same hydraulic wall is also an economical alternative. Another important detail that reduces costs is the positioning of the water tank. This should preferably be done near these wet areas. Thus, the water pressure in the equipment will be higher, and the expense of piping for distribution will be lower.
