  3. There can be no unified interior suitable for each accommodation. You have to start with the individual person and family and their preferences and lifestyles. Some people live at a frantic pace, come home to sleep and hardly ever cook for themselves. Such a person needs a comfortable bedroom, dressing room and possibly a study, but the kitchen and dining area to assign a minimum area. If you have a large family with a tradition of gathering around a bountiful table, be sure to allocate the main area under the living and dining room and carefully think of places for kitchen storage.
