Storage or the lack thereof is becoming an all too common problem in our homes today. If you are in the midst of planning to build a new home or even to remodel your current home, this is the perfect time to look at your storage needs and plan accordingly. Having ample storage helps you to not only stay organized and tidy but also saves space. There are many ways to store items, whether you want them to be on display or out of sight. Having built-in bookcases or shelves is a great way to store items that you want to be seen. Built-ins can be decorative and add character to your home while being useful. You can store anything from books to pictures to trophies. You may prefer to have a built-in with doors to store such items as your TV and media devices so they are not seen. Storage cabinets built in under the stairs are another area to contain items that you may want to keep under wraps. Adding furniture that doubles as storage such as buffets, tables, and ottomans are functional decorative furnishings. Either option would be a great addition to any living area.
There are several opportunities to gain storage in your kitchen and bath. One way is by having kitchen cabinets that go all the way to your ceiling. The top shelves are a good place to store small appliances or items that are not used frequently. Adding open shelving to your kitchen or bath can look good while providing storage. Having your drawers deeper in your kitchen and bathrooms will also give you more usable space. It’s also helpful to add cabinets to your laundry area, or organizers with shelves and drawers to your closets.
