Building your new InVogue home is an exciting time filled with many decisions and choices. How will you make your kitchen dining and lounge room flow? Or will you wall colour match the flooring and the cabinetry you’ve chosen? There are so many important and impactful decisions to make but there is always one thing that is over looked and that is the storage space. Storage is important and differs from each room. The lounge room storage for blankets, photo albums or even the classic DVD’s. Storage in the kitchen is much more than just for food. Want to know why? Read on.
The kitchen is the heart of the home and a place where people gather to socialise and to feast. A kitchen that is clutter free is a kitchen that has ample storage solutions. From under the bench top storage to the overhead cupboard storage spaces. The walk-in pantry providing many shelves of storage or even the butler’s pantry where all of your appliances will be stored. There are small additions that can be added including the slim line slide out cupboard big enough to store the everyday cook essentials inclusive of the cooking oil, herbs and spices, breakfast cereals and much more.
The lounge room is a place to gather, rest and entertain. There is no better way than using the furniture as storage. You can simply use the entertainment unit as a place to store games, movies, board games and other digital devices. By incorporating baskets into the room, it is a great place to store blankets and extra pillows. Lastly, simply choosing your furnishings to include storage for example a couch that lifts up can store other blankets. There are simple and effective storage solutions for the lounge room.
The laundry is often overlooked when it comes to storage as we see it as only being a space for the washing machine and dryer. Times have changed and it is now time to build storage into the laundry. By building in laundry baskets keep the clothes contained and out of sight. The laundry is also a great place to store arts and craft in the overhead cupboards. There is no need to have a linen cupboard in the hallway, you can store all your towels, linen and much more in the laundry. PLUS, have hidden electrical points throughout the laundry for the iron and other electrics.
To keep it mess free you’ll need your bathroom to stick to being minimalist. By installing under the basin storage and/or a simple mirror cabinet is an effective storage solution. The under the basin storage will store your hair dryer and other large electrical items, while the mirror cabinet will store your toothbrush and toothpaste, makeup and every day creams. Both solutions are easy to incorporate and are easy to use.
If you are building a two-storey home, you will have a stair case within the home. Instead of having it as an unused space, you can build in a small storage area perfect for the broom, electrical appliances you do not use often, extra board games and so much more.
