Mrs Wells are planning on moving to the rural seaside and having a house built on a block of land. Much to the surprise of the designers my preoccupations are not theirs. Keeping noise from getting out, not in, copious shelving for records, no I don’t have SONOS and, of most concern to me, the acoustics of the lounge/kitchen area.
Typically, modern houses are one big open plan rectangle , hard surfaces abound and it is one big rectangle. I don’t want that. Obviously we will be including plenty of soft furnishings and hopefully cortains too. But it is the shape of the room and the design of the ceiling that I am seeking advice about.
