Does your home have adequate traffic flow? Traffic flow is how people move around a room, and can affect how well a room functions. Well designed homes or remodeled rooms are easy and enjoyable to use. However, rooms without good traffic flow can present 'traffic hazards. If your kitchen is the path to the living room, the cook might be interrupted several times during meal preparation. Doors that open onto hallways may cause injury. Correctly planned traffic flow helps make a home convenient and safe. One easy way to achieve good traffic flow is to consult a 'Certified Professional Building Designer.' Your designer will begin with guidelines for comfortable sized hallways, convenient work areas and efficient distances between appliances. Now the designer may begin to blend the elements into a plan created just for your home. This can include handy storage, easy access to utility areas and special organization hardware in cabinets. Finally the designer will try to ensure predicted traffic patterns allow for the activities your family enjoys most. Careful planning can help create clever traffic flow that can improve your enjoyment of your home.
