When you build your own home, you have the unique position of being able to design your new home with whatever features you like. There are a number of considerations you should make in the design of your home, but one of the things that many people overlook is their storage spaces. Often the biggest complaint that people have when they move into a new home is a lack of storage space, but you are in a position to make sure that you have all you need. Here are three storage tips to consider when designing your home.
Make Storage Adaptable
Chances are that the storage needs you have now will change over time. If you have small children, their closets will need to be able to adapt as their clothing gets bigger. If you have adult children, you will want to be able to convert your storage spaces to new uses when they go to college or move out. Our closet and storage solutions can be made to easily convert to additional uses as your needs change.
Make Use of Dead Space
You can add different storage solutions to dead spaces in your home. Dead space is any space that does not serve a specific purpose. It can include corners, between a wall and mantle, or other locations in your home. Even a small closet or shelving unit can make a huge difference.
Hobbies and Storage
If you have a lot of hobbies such as sports, collections, crafting, sewing, or knitting, you’ll need places to store all of your belongings. Having large open closets may not be the best solution. Closets that have built-in shelves and drawers can make storing everything for your hobbies much easier. If you stop the hobby in the future, the storage systems can easily be adapted to another use.
