I don’t know if it’s because I’m getting older, but lately I have been listening to my wife more. She’s asked me to pause my old rock and roll habits and to do some more “family man” shenanigans. She asked me if we could spend this pandemic lockdown time period making our home more snazzy. I researched some design ideas and methods and I wanted to share what I learned.
No matter what decor theme or design ideas you have followed, every home is in need of some additional space. Whether you live in a small apartment or a large detached home, it is always important to maximize space and create a welcoming and spacious feel. Your ideas should not be limited to any one room, instead, it is necessary to think creatively about almost every part of your home. There are many creative strategies that you can try for enhanced home improvement.
Create a more open entryway
The entryway is the most important area of your home where you come home after a long day and welcome your guests for parties and weekends. Therefore, the foyer of your home must be functional and efficient. You can maximize space by arranging storage vertically. For example, you can hang shoes on the shoe rack and use wall-mounted hooks to hang clothing. Consider adding a large mirror, as this naturally creates visual space expansion.
Add functionality to your cooking and dining space
In most homes, the kitchen is the busiest space. Cooking can be stressful, but you can make cooking breakfast, lunch, and dinner easier by adding functionality. Try to maximize space by using vertical storage arrangements and use drawers or cabinets to store food items. In addition, add shelves for pots, pans, and cooking appliances.
Expand your bathroom
This is the space that most see first in the morning and last at night. Getting ready for work in the mornings can be a nightmare if your bathroom is cluttered and tight. It is possible to maximize the space in the bathroom so that you can get ready each day in peace. For instance, shared bathrooms may require more shelves and drawers to store items in a more organized manner. Consider adding drawer organizers and dividers to keep makeup, skincare, medicine, and other self-care accessories organized.
Elevate your living room
There is no doubt that sometimes your living room may be the messiest room in your house. As the living room is usually where most of the activity happens, this is the space that people like to focus their home improvement efforts. If you are in need of more storage options, you can maximize space by adding multifunctional furniture such as a coffee table with drawers and open shelves. You can also get creative with sofa arrangement to add more space.
Revive your bedroom
Sleep and rest are critical. Your bedroom should create a relaxing and rejuvenated feeling. After all, this is the room where you come to sleep after a long tiring day. It is best to treat your bedroom as a sanctuary. As the adage goes: “out of mind, out of sight.” If you don’t have one already, consider building a walk-in closet. A painting or mirror on the wall adds luxury instantly.Read Johnny B.‘s review of Inspired Remodels on Yelp
