What is Space Planning?

Space planning is the preliminary step within the interior design process, it is the foundation of what your design is built on. It is about defining how the space will be used based on what will suit your needs best on a priority basis. Space planning influences how you will move around your home comfortably and with ease, it considers the relationship between each room, creating connections and functions to ensure the space is used to its full potential to meet your physical and emotional needs. There is often more than one solution to planning out a space for a home, the aim is to design a space that meets your requirements without compromising the flow and circulation of your home.

By taking the first step, request an ‘Ask The Expert’ call, you will be moving in the right direction to get the home that works for you.


We had decided to build an indoor-outdoor kitchen and socialising room, but we were struggling to get a good layout and flow for the space. Eleanor was able to look at the space with fresh eyes. She listened carefully to our requirements and was then able to guide us towards a practical and workable solution. We are about to start the build, and I am confident that the space is going to function well for our family.
Without Eleanor’s help and outside perspective, I think we would never have moved out of the planning stage. Eleanor has a gift for looking at spaces and seeing all of the possibilities. She can then help you to visualise how the space will look so that you can be confident in your decisions.
I wholeheartedly recommend Eleanor.

Living in a 2 bedroom apartment with 3 children is not easy. We were living in the middle of a mess every day and evening, the living area was closing in on us and it was getting me down. Eleanor from @cobelis.ie came to our rescue and all it took was one consultation and there was light, we took her advice and we have never looked back, it’s amazing how the little things can make a big difference.
Thank you Eleanor @cobelis.ie, you are AMAZING and your service is top quality, we’d highly recommend you and can’t wait until we meet again!

Eleanor did a fantastic job of designing our new kitchen. She devised a clever and functional design that made full use of the space available and radically improved the flow of the room, whilst still meeting our storage needs. We are delighted with the kitchen and couldn’t be happier with how well it works. Eleanor was professional, efficient and helpful throughout the process and we would absolutely recommend her.

Where to start, from our first chat with Eleanor right up to presentation day we could not have asked for more. Professional, friendly, knowledgeable and forthcoming with ideas and suggestions. Eleanor took our ideas and was in a position to show us a visual of what we could achieve. We would have no hesitation in recommending Cobelis for any of your design/redesign needs.
