I have seen in episodes over the years Bob Vila comment how a rooms dimensions are ideal or classical. I believe one time he mentioned a width to length ration of 1 to 1.5 so a 10 foot wide room should be 15 feet in length. While this formula if I remembered it correctly would work in some rooms what I would like to understand the architecture theory behind room dimensions of length and width to ceiling height.
I am sure all can agree that the ratio of these dimensions contribute greatly to feeling someone has when entering and being in a room.
I have searched and searched the internet and cannot seam to find any guide that gives suggested dimension ratios for various rooms types and the feeling your trying to create (formal, casual, cozy, grand, intimate, etc etc).
Bob, if you are reading this, I think this is something that would be of great help to people when they are designing their homes.
Thanks for your help.
