If you have plans to modify or customize your house or cottages, there is a lot of work that goes into it. However, what some people may not know is that there are things that do not have to change. For example, the interior walls or kitchen layout can all remain the same. It is often things like this that help to lower the cost of the overall renovation process. So be sure to consider that when making your cottage or house plans.
It is also important, when making your plans, to figure out what size and shapes you want your future rooms to be and how much you'll need depending on the room's function. The shape of the room is also very important to consider as it could make a room completely nonfunctional if you make it too awkward of a shape. Simple and generic shapes are generally the preferred option. The scale of the room is also incredibly important, especially for cottages, as they often tend to be smaller than houses. A couple of questions you may want to ask yourself when designing these spaces is "Is this space going to be properly proportioned?" and "Is this space going to be balanced and functional for what I need it to be?"
