Our 101 interior design class will need to open up to a simple concept; drawing. No one can be called a designer if he or she cannot draw. There are many types of drawing involved here, however, even a not so perfect drawing can work in this step. So what will you draw? The answer is simple, just the room you want to decorate. The catch here is the scale upon which you are supposed to make your design. It is simple to learn and even simpler to apply but is the name of this scale?
Our scale is called the 1/4 inch scale and how it goes? The formula goes this way; 1/4 inch = 12 inches or 1 foot. This means that every 12 inches or 1 foot count only for a 1/4 of an inch which on a grid paper will be a side of a square. So if your room is 10 feet by 12 feet then, on a grid paper and with the quarter inch scale, it will be 10 squares by 12 squares. If we calculated every furniture piece dimensions and tried having them put in place in our drawing, we will have a perfect miniature for the room in question.
