For the optimal work and study hours a student must have a room designed to promote focus, functionality, and creativity. To achieve this a room should be as adaptable as possible, this will prevent it from "going out of style", loosing its functionality, and it will allow its resident to express himself or herself through the room.
(Maybe a good view will aid you in the design process) ;D ^^^
Step 1: Brainstorming
Here are a list of things that I find essential to a work room:
- Plenty of desk space
- Proper natural lighting
- Comfortable seating
- Plenty of materials to work with that are close by (ex. pencils, pens, markers, a 3D printer)
- A large white board
- Good heating, cooling, and ventilation.
- Power EVERYWHERE (electricity)
- Fast Wi-Fi
- Adaptable furniture
- Lots of shelve space
- Post ideas anywhere
- Easy to clean
Step 2: Designing
Once you have created your list you should start to think about how the room would look. A good way to do this is to go through your list and sketch (or CAD) each point individually, some points won't be so easy to draw so you can just note how you would incorporate it into other objects in the room.
I recommend doing some research on new technologies that you could put in your design.
Step 3: Putting It Together
Once you finish drawing or taking notes on the items in your list you can begin to incorporate them into one design.
A good way to do this is to turn your list of items into a check list. After that you draw your room and begin to add the things on your list. I suggest doing this a couple of times to make sure you end up with the best design possible.
The next section is my design, you can reference it if you get stuck or are looking for ideas. I hope this has helped you create you dream room and hopefully you've enjoyed the process.
Thank you and have a nice day!
Step 4: My Design:
Room picture (with walls): This is the overall shape of my room. The window is on the far side and can open to help with ventilation.
Room picture (without walls): In this picture you can see into the room. Many of the features that I wanted to include are easy to see (and labeled), others however are not. Side note about the bed: I have a bunk bed right now and I don't use the ladder to get it so I didn't add a ladder. Side note about the white board and shelves: both are magnetic so I can pin papers and other things to it with a magnet.
Lamp and rail (on the ceiling): This is the lamp and rail that would go around the metal rack. This is an important part of the room because, even though there is already lighting in the room, it is important to have light exactly where you need it especially when taking something apart or building something.
Adaptable table(s): This table was designed to lock to the black strip and the each other. I think it is important that they can be moved around to form different kinds of tables so it is easy to adapt to what ever is needed.
This would be the perfect room for me to focus on work, build, draw, enjoy a movie, play video games, hang out with friends, and of course, sleep.
