Ways To Maximize Space In Your New Custom Home
When designing a custom home, many people want to dive in and start adding rooms and concepts left and right. However, it is important to keep in mind that your home has functionality as well. Storage and space is something that many people find themselves wanting more in their homes and this is best accomplished when designing your custom home! There are plenty of innovative ways to maximize space in your new custom home; from open concept designs to choice of furniture and decoration, working with the right custom home builder will give your new home all the space you need! Here are some great tips on how to maximize the space in your new custom home before and after it is built!
One of the most commonly used tricks of the interior design trade is that mirrors make rooms appear larger and more bright. Adding a mirror to any room is a great way to add space while also adding functionality to your home. There are countless styles and types of mirrors, too, so you can add a different flare or feel to each room.
It may not sound conventional, but keeping your windows uncovered, or even just lightly covered is a great way to let in some natural light and sunshine, which helps lighten the mood and add some brightness and shimmer to your new custom home. Uncovered windows have the benefit of making a room feel a lot bigger than its size, while also providing a lot of natural light throughout the day. An open and airy feeling home is a welcoming home.
One of the best ways to maximize your living space in your new custom home is by designing extra living space outdoors. Designing a patio, porch, or lawn area is perfect for entertaining and relaxing while reaping the outside environment. There are even innovative ways to cover your outdoor space to keep it comfortable and inviting. A covered deck with custom built seating is the best way to entertain your guests for any occasion, from the Sunday football game to your weekly book club session!
Off The Floor
One of the best ways to maximize space in your new home is to not hide the floor. Keep items stored within closets, cabinets, or even in attics or the garage rather than on the floor. A clutter-free floor not only helps make the space look larger, it is also a lot easier to clean.
An Organized Kitchen
Despite all of the space in your new home, there is still a lot of time spent in the kitchen, whether by you and your family, or while hosting – kitchens tend to be a major gathering spot. A well-organized kitchen not only makes things a lot easier on you while cooking, but it will look cleaner and cause less stress when you are not cooking. As well, remember to routinely do fridge purges to make sure that you’re not stocking old, or expired items.
New space-saving beds are a great option for adults or children. There are now a lot of wonderful bed options that have pull-out drawers or built-in cabinets to add a little extra storage to your bedroom. These are great ways to keep your bedroom clutter-free while not getting rid of everything you need.
While there are plenty of great ways to help create space on your own, the majority of it will come during the home design process. An experienced custom home builder will be able to recommend an endless variety of design solutions that will never leave you wanting for space.
