Dwell Dome Interior Designs by Pacific Domes

The open floor plan and vaulted ceilings of a Dwell Dome offers a warm sunlit space for your unique interior design. Depending on your usage, you might decide to work with an open space, add a loft or interior walls to separate living spaces.

If you plan on spending any length of time in your dwelling place, going completely rustic may not suit your ideal lifestyle. You can build freestanding interior walls to partition rooms, like living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens and bathrooms.

Partition walls can also become the structural support for your Dwell Dome loft. By installing a kitchen and a bathroom on opposite sides of a shared partition, framed walls offer a way to consolidate plumbing and electrical wiring.

Go modular with freestanding walls that balance privacy with an open floor plan

Lofts can be enjoyed by kids and adults alike. A Dwell Dome loft makes use of high ceilings to maximize living space. In larger domes, attaching a loft above partition walls is a cozy and functional way to create additional storage and sleeping quarters.

To retain that open spacious feeling, the ideal loft size should not exceed a third of the interior. Although lofts, walls, or dividers should be self-supporting, this can be accomplished by using a little construction know-how and ingenuity.

Stairs are an obvious replacement for ladders and can serve a two-fold purpose. Storage space can be hard to fit into the interior design, so if you can build closet or storage space into your stairs you’ll be taking care of two design elements at the same time.

You can create a separate living room, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom by sectioning off four freestanding interconnected walls in the form of a cross. The partition walls are further strengthened by attaching a staircase and adding a loft.

There’s no shortage of eco-friendly housing building materials to suit your lifestyle. One of the superior products we’ve found is offered by U.S. manufacturer, JetBoard™.

JetBoard™ is flameproof, moisture-proof, mold & mildew-proof, insect-proof and has both interior and exterior applications. You’ll find JetBoard™ being used for walls of showers, bathrooms, kitchens, as well as platforms and floors.

JetBoard™ is made with naturally occurring magnesium oxide, a non-toxic and non-carcinogenic mineral. It’s the construction material of choice for those with chemical sensitivities. 

Dwell Dome Living Room

Interior wall design and furniture placement can optimize your Dwell Dome living space. Designers frequently use rounded furniture to make rooms appear larger.

A rounded room has style built into it and offers limitless design opportunities. A curved wall creates an optical illusion to make large furniture appear smaller.

Dwell Dome Bedroom

If there’s any place where you want to imitate the simplicity of a luxury resort, it’s in the bedroom. The challenge of creating closet space can be overcome by building the loft staircase off to one side of the bedroom.

Dwell Dome Kitchen

The kitchen deserves your careful planning and attention to detail, as it is one of the most utilized rooms in your living space. Combo kitchen units sold to RV and boat owners are an affordable option for creating Dwell Dome kitchen spaces.

You’ll want to physically outline your kitchen design on the floor surface by masking off your space limitations to get a good visual. If you plan on cooking, your kitchen will need moisture-proofing and ventilation, such as a range hood.

Dwell Dome Bathroom

When it comes to bathroom privacy, subdividing your space is a no-brainer. You’ll want to ventilate and moisture-proof your bathroom for steam from showers.
