What mistakes should I avoid when designing my house?

Who does not enjoying creating and designing his own dream house ?! I believe that everyone does. Therefore, here are some tips that will make your house design successful and professional.

Neglecting the balcony

A house with a balcony is the body with a soul. Including a balcony in the house is one of its most benefits where you can enjoy viewing the outside as it will be your own resort when you want to connect with nature.

Not including an entrance lobby

Some designers forget or disregard the entrance lobby and directly open the main entrance door to the living spaces or guest reception. This could be uncomfortable for the residents who find themselves in a company with every stranger on the door; leaving no privacy for the residents.

Too many walls

Dividing a house into many rooms by building too many walls is something undesirable and can waste the spaces of the house, especially that the main trend nowadays goes toward the open spaces.

Dangerous stairs

If you plan to design a house on two floors, then you should avoid the dangerous and narrow stairs with sharp angles.
