As the homeowner of a new custom-built home, chances are you have given a lot of thought to the features and aesthetics of your new living space. You will probably want to get rid of a lot of old belongings, which aren’t needed or don’t fit into the modern look of your new home. Moving into your new home will provide you with a great chance to declutter and start fresh but keep in mind, there will still be a lot that needs to be stored, shelved, and set up.
At Fretwell Homes, our team of expert home builders in Volusia County, understands how every homeowner wants to maximize space in their new custom-built home. Here are some of our top tips on helping you make the most out of your space in a creative and stylish way:
Choose Multipurpose Furniture
Homeowners today love the airy and seamless flow in their home that comes along with an open floor plan. Without walls dividing the various rooms and areas of your home, your home appears spacious and brighter and gives you an opportunity to get creative with décor. Along with well thought-out placement of your furniture, it’s also beneficial to choose items that serve more than just one purpose. Coffee tables and side tables with drawers are great for storing small items while ottomans can work as seats and footstools with room for storage inside.
Utilize Shelving and Storage Cabinets
One of the most wonderful parts about building your own custom home is being able to have a say in how much space you want to dedicate to storage. Along with that, you get to choose what kind of a look you want to for your shelves and cabinets so that storage spaces don’t ruin the appearance of your living space. Plan out your storage with your trusted home builders at Fretwell Homes so that you can have enough room for all your daily belongings, seasonal décor, kitchenware and children’s books and toys among other items.
Make the Most Out of Your Entryway
Where you want to keep the entrance of your home open and clutter-free, you also want to make sure you don’t let all that precious space go to waste. To keep your entryway clean and tidy, install floating shelves and wall-mounted hooks to place items you need to access when you’re heading out. Placing a mirror in a strategic position in your entryway can also give the area a more open and brighter appearance.
Maximize Your Kitchen Storage
While countertops, appliances, lighting fixtures and backsplash all play a significant role in the look and design of your kitchen, your cabinet and shelves are equally important as they will help keep your room decluttered and organized. Kitchens are usually the busiest rooms in the home so you want to make sure that you design your cabinets and open and closed shelves in a way where everything can be easily accessed without crowding your counterspace.
