Tareq means in his speech that elaborate planning from the moment the decision is taken will lead to what is supreme in terms of aesthetics and functionality.  The most important thing to start with our design is to put the basic markings for the route of our journey, and to start with the correct engineering planning of the spaces, so our carelessness to this point at the beginning may be an obstacle to not getting what we want, so it's something we do not want to happen.

The right light can bring color to life or create a relaxing atmosphere, while the inappropriate light can turn your home interior into a stark and unwelcome space.

Make the room appear larger than it is, using the illusion and some tricks to deceive the eye, for example, choosing vertical lines extending from floor to ceiling gives the impression of spaciousness and height. In addition, floor-to-ceiling curtains can make the room feel extra luxurious. Keep the decor within a reasonable proportion of the space. For example, use a narrow shelving unit in the bathroom to avoid creating a feeling of crowding. Shiny things give the tight spaces the ideal perfection while we might use a slightly opaque finish for larger spaces.
