Solution 1

I don't know how you are going to design your database. I don't have your requirement specification document. But I can suggest you to go through the links which will demonstrate "What will be the best for you".
SQL SERVER – 15 Best Practices for Better Database Performance[^]
Best Practices for Database Schema Design[^]
SQL Server Database Design Best Practices for Good Performance[^]

You should use these Three Ways to Plan Database Design[^].

You need to take care about Ten Common Database Design Mistakes[^] also.

You might wanna talk to God, maybe you'll get him to do it for you.

Other than that, you might wanna start reading on Database design[^], while avoiding common DB design mistakes[^] (which I don't fully agree with, but it's ok on the whole).

And if you want to design it in a GUI interface, well, there's a few solutions that may actually help, but SQL Server Management Studio comes to mind first (you did specify SQL-Server).
