Properties / Re: Interior Architecture In Nigeria Is Very Bad by FastShipping: 4:58pm

My brother, You shouldn't give up, if you want to build your house to your taste, you need to get an architect that is like minded. choose a very easy to understand but beautiful house design, there should be less wall but large spaces,instead of demarcating the kitchen why don't u leave it with the lounge. thereby reducing expenditures. I saw a post by a man who claimed that such designs led to technical problems...what technical problem? angry we always want easy things which is not helping at all. we also have abundance of wood so i think buying cheap shouldn't be a problem. while building always inspect and correct few mistakes made here or there. And God bless if you are an interior designer. it will be quite easy to in corporate designs found on-line.

Glass! smiley, many people don't know what beauty beholds a house with glass walls and frame-less doors. the figure below shows example of smart designs with cheap expenditures. polished wooden glass walls and windows and doors will do, especially if you are building a bali styled house (fig Unit12 voor) . cheap but beautiful,you don't need curtains rather go for window blinds. by the way, do we use window blinds in Nigeria?, its definitely alien to most Nigerians (smh)

@fastshipping. can't you replicated this bedroom if you were to supervise a carpenter? (Fig 4-Bedroom-design) .There is nothing special there. its just the choice of design that made the bedroom stunningly beautiful with simple details. as you can see, the light made it more rich in colours. we must incorporate all these elements when designing a house. don't be afraid to try new things.

grin grin grin

Walls? I hate brick walls in any form. I love homes built with polished woods and thick aluminium with glass. The four sides of the home I'm building are not 100% walls. The front side of will be 80% glass. The side where the kitchen, lounge and nook are located will be 30% glass. I love thick plain white glass. I love them so much I can't think about waking up every morning and just have to see walls everywhere. Glass and less wall allow more space in the house. It is also cheaper to have less walls.

Who needs curtains in a when you have glass walls or large windows. Curtains are part and parcel of our people. I rather have a wooden made window blinds behind my glass windows. It is very rare to see a house in Nigeria designed with some good window blinds. Our architects and interior designers need to go out and see what is out there.

All I need is time to go to Nigeria and get things done with a good designer and builder. I have just been recommended a guy on nairaland. I will be talking to him shortly.
