A drawing room is considered one of the most important spaces to be designed, when it comes to Pakistani homes. Homeowners often decorate their drawing rooms with the most luxurious and expensive pieces. It is considered a formal space, where you entertain your guests. In Pakistan, a formal dining area is also attached beside the drawing room for added convenience.
When it comes to placing the drawing room in the layout of a house, people mostly opt for the front of the house, right beside the lawn. But there are some smart people, who utilize this space for the living room and place the drawing room beside the car porch or sometimes even in the basement. But then again, this choice varies with people and their different lifestyle.
In this blog, we will investigate how to create your drawing room interior and transform it into a pleasant space, which is not only formal and luxurious, but is also inviting and welcoming.
1. Architectural Elements
Think about including architectural elements that reflect Pakistan’s customary style during the construction phase. Elements like arched doorways, decorative areas, and detailed jali in the form of a screen can add a welcoming touch, while paying homage to the country’s architectural history
2. Space Planning
Efficient space planning is essential to maximize the functionality of your drawing room. Work closely with your architect to ensure that the layout is conducive to conversations and relaxation. Consider the placement of seating around focal points like a fireplace. Make sure to add seating in the form to create groups. It should be a place where conversations happen. The seating arrangement should neither be scattered, which might discourage communication, nor should it overcrowd the guests in a confined space.
3. Quality Materials
Select high-quality building materials that will stand the test of time. Marble or wooden parquet flooring are both elegant and long-lasting options for flooring. Wooden panels, intricate carvings, and ornate mouldings decorate the walls and ceilings.
4. Lighting Integration
Plan the lighting layout carefully, allowing for a variety of lighting options to create the desired ambiance. Consider using cove lighting, chandeliers, or pendant lights to compliment your interior design while highlighting the architectural beauty of your room. During construction, proper electrical wiring and outlets should also be completely integrated.
5. Built-in Furniture
Custom built-in furniture not only saves space but also adds a touch of class to your living room. Built-in bookshelves, cabinets, and entertainment units can be designed to blend in with the architectural features of the room, providing functionality as well as style. For rest of the furniture, select something formal but comfortable. Make sure you aren’t going overboard with something too comfortable and choosing sofas, suitable for a living room instead.
6. Fireplace Design
Make your fireplace the focal point of your drawing room. A well-designed fireplace adds warmth and character to a space. Whether it’s a traditional stone fireplace or a modern, simple version, you can customise the design to match your interior style.
7. Ventilation and Climate Control
A comfortable and inviting drawing room requires proper ventilation and climate control. Ensure that your space is well-ventilated and has an efficient cooling and heating system during construction. This will help to keep the atmosphere pleasant throughout the year.
Elevating the space of your drawing room interior in Pakistan during the construction phase is a creative process. You can create a space that is not only visually appealing but also functional and comfortable by combining architectural elements that reflect Pakistan’s heritage with modern design principles. Quality materials, efficient space planning, and the incorporation of lighting and built-in furniture should all be priorities during the construction process. Finally, the finished drawing room will be a testament to your taste as well as Pakistan’s rich architectural heritage.
