The 4 F’s of great home design (do you know what they are?)

What are the fundamentals when it comes to designing your home? The ones you must get right?

Let’s get down to the fundamentals. This episode introduces the “four F”s I like to consider when designing any room in your home. And in designing your home overall.

What are these four Fs? They are:

  1. Functionality
  2. Flexibility
  3. Furnishability
  4. Flow

(There’s a secret fifth F too!)

I’ll share with you what each of these mean, and how to use them to create a home design that suits you now, and always.

I’ll also outline what ‘design’ actually means. This isn’t an elite, unrealistic or unachievable design. This is the design that makes your everyday life in your home better, simpler, more convenient and more fun. Sometimes the measure of it is that it’s so good, you don’t even notice it.

This episode sets the stage with the core info you need to know before we dive into the rest of the season. As we move forward to discuss each room or space individually, you’ll have a framework to help you get it right.

This episode also begins to answer one of the most common questions I receive:

How do I create a design that works? Especially when I plan on being in this home for 10 to 15 years? How do I predict what my family will need in the years to come, as well as be great for us now?

Listen to the podcast now. You’ll be on the way to getting it right in your design for your home.

And if you want to learn more about how to design your home, I’ve created a special (and free!) e-guide for you. It’s called “How to Design a Home: 5 Simple Steps to Getting it Right”. Just click on the image below to get your copy.
