The dimensions of an one car and a two car garage


Garages are generally used to store in one, two or even three cars and as storage spaces for tools, bicycles, woods, etc. When it comes to the issue of best garage size or standard measurements the opinions differ. In fact, the ideal garage size depends on three major factors: Car size, storage needs, working in the garage.

Car dimensions:

The dimensions of a car, especially, the car length vary significantly between several models. However, the width is more standard, since all vehicles have to drive in the same lanes. According to the book "Architect's data" by Ernst & Peter Neufert (p. 437) the standard car size is, length=4.50m X width=1.80m. In practice, most cars are longer and wider than these measurements so, in the following examples we have considered an average car size of 4,70m to 1,90m. 

To find the best garage for your car, add to the width of the car a clearance of 2’-6’’ to 2’-7’’ (76cm to 80cm). This clearance is necessary for circulation between vehicles, and between vehicles and other obstacles.

Wabi Sabi: From poetry to interior design


wabi sabi materials, wabi sabi surfaces, wabi sabi objects

Wabi-Sabi is not a decorating "style" and it is not a set of rules about arranging furniture in our homes. We can’t just hang crystals, or place mirrors or rearrange our bed and expect to change our lifes. Wabi-Sabi, unlike Feng Shui is not a set of rules, but it is rather a mind-set, a way of living modestly with a deep and true appreciation of daily life.


Double bed position in the bedroom


The double bed is placed against the center of the wall rather than the corner of the room, so as the long sides of the bed remain free. Otherwise, it is difficult for the sleepers to use the bed, lie or get out off it, while it is almost impossible to make the bed and clean the floor below.

The double, queen-sized or king-sized bed can be placed: 

  • Against the center of the wall with the headboard opposite the main door. With this placement the headboard becomes the center of attention as someone enters the room.
