We all know the saying that a house isn’t a house until we make it a home….. but how do we undergo this transformation? Designing your home with your hobbies and interests in mind will help to ensure that your home is designed around your lifestyle. How can you do this? Well it’s time to transform that “extra room” or clear out your child’s old toy room and bite the bullet and buy the Pelton you have always wanted or a full line of recliner chairs to make the home theater of your dreams. Beware: Once you voice your ambitions to your other half, you might need to have a multi-functional space in mind as they, too, decide that a dedication to their passions is also due.
Particularly if a multi-functional space is the anticipated usage, storage is pivotal. No longer only the bulky, unattractive tubs that your holiday decorations currently reside, there are a plethora of options for storage. From built-ins customized for your needs to furniture with secret build in storage you can find something that fits your needs and style.
Don’t forget to ensure all your furniture and accessories fit your home; you want durable furniture that can withstand the test of time and the intended usage. If you have pets or children (or messy spouses!) you want to get durable fabrics that can easily be cleaned; if you have a high traffic area, you want to ensure you pick the optimal flooring so that it can hold up.
Don’t think you have space for your, well, space? In an earlier job, we transformed an unfinished basement into an oasis for grandchildren and extended family to stay. This transformation allowed our clients to fulfil their interests of having their family around more often. Using efficient space saving design and built in storage, we were able to assist them in creating an ideal location for family gatherings and overnight guests.
If you’re ready to create a one-of-a-kind space perfectly suited to your daily life, reach out to us. We can’t wait to hear about your project.
