Roomdesign Rauchenwald is a Brisbane-based interior design business, specialising in creating modern solutions for both new build houses and the renovation sector.
The dining and living rooms are the most used areas of our homes when entertaining our guests, or taking time to relax ourselves. Coming home and being able to relax and leave work behind, isn't that what life's about?
Creating an appealing living room area depends on the right use of furniture. A room designed from a concept, containing custom built furniture, where everything has its place, can transform your "house" into a "home".
Your living areas should reflect a little of yourself. It should also be designed to accommodate the way you want to live. Perhaps it could contain an appropriate area to drop off the items you have been carrying around all day; maybe a display area where you can show off some of your "special treasures", a custom designed unit to contain your home entertainment centre. The list goes on.
Entertain, celebrate or "party hard" in your new home bar or entertaining area.
Yes, size does matter! When designing a bar, the size of your room and the size of the parties you are going to cater for must be taken into consideration. Is it to be the classic bar design or a more modern themed design?
Everything is there: the fridge, the beautifully presented wine display, the bar sink, the dishwasher, the microwave and oven. Together we can design your entertaining / bar area to incorporate any or all of these wonderful things.
The kitchen and the bathroom are the rooms that we interact with most. Whether you are a regular user of the kitchen or not you will appreciate a well thought through layout that suits all needs. It all comes down to utilising the space available to create a layout that suits the room and your routine when preparing meals or entertaining your family and guests.
Designing your bathroom doesn't need to be a difficult task. The size of the bathroom can however limit its ultimate layout. A shower or combined bath/shower, a vanity or a toilet only works with their minimum requirements for space. If for example we use the smallest shower, the smallest vanity, and the smallest toilet in a bathroom with a window, we know how big this room has to be to accommodate all of these items and still maintain a functional room.
When is the right time to think about putting a room concept together for a kid's room? Is it a toddler, a preschooler, a primary schooler or a teenager?
When designing a nursery, the question should be raised: for how long will this room concept be suitable for my child? As a rule of thumb: Children under 6 years of age will not necessarily require a custom designed concept.
It begins when your loved ones start attending school. You have to think about where homework will be done and how to create a room that your child loves to be in. The next challenge will arrive when your child turns 12. This is when we need to create a room suitable for your teenager. You have to rethink the bed size, wardrobe space, study area, space for their friends to "hang out" with them, the list goes on.
We humans spend 1/3 of our lives in the bedroom. Taking this fact into consideration, we really should be giving this room more creative thought.
Let your imagination run wild and we can design the bedroom of your dreams. Imagine a bedroom decorated like "the Safari room", or "the Arabian Nights room" with glowing stars on the ceiling. A creative and decorative surround in your bedroom gives you back the "good morning" you deserve.
Your home office can be more than just a workstation and constant "battlefield" where you struggle to maintain order. In combining the available space with your requirements, you could enjoy a room where everything is designed to your expectations. Your new home study can be designed to fit your needs and your personality. If the size of the room permits it may also be a haven where a little library in one corner or a nice reading area can cater for those rare quiet moments in life.
I am an interior designer from Austria with a background in cabinet-making. Once I finished my apprenticeship I realised that the only way I could fulfil my dream to create "complete room designs" would be to start my own business.
I have always been a strong believer in the idea that a room and furniture are closely connected, and that a room should be a total concept that incorporates furniture into the overall design. My desire to create complete room designs, combined with my theoretical knowledge and practical skills has transformed me into a unique interior designer whose work is informed by the individual needs of each client.
My aim is to work closely with my clients to "unlock" their imagination, and to provide innovative design ideas through drawing and discussion. In particular, I like to focus on developing detailed furniture designs that maximise the available space and create an appealing environment.
As with all things, your circumstances will dictate your needs. Whether you are a family with three kids, a young couple who have just moved into their first home, or an older couple embarking upon retirement, designing an interior and layout that suits your individual needs can be a very enjoyable experience.
