Everyone has limited space on their residential premises; making creativity an essential virtue to utilise what they have. The following are some suggestions that can help you make the most out of your limited space:
The outdoor area of your house can help you implement your creative skills to choose the right structure to construct that will not only enhance your weekend experiences but also give your home an amplified aesthetic appeal. The following are few ideas that can help you utilise this space efficiently:
Gazebo & Pergola
If all your family members love to sit together and enjoy delicious weekend meals often, then a well-designed gazebo or pergola can save the day. It is a low-cost expense with results that can be very promising. Hire professionals to design a 4-8 seater gazebo or pergola for the outdoor space, do a little work on its surroundings, like adding green shrubs & flowers, to make the view appealing.
This is an age-old space-utilising structure which is still preferred for outdoor spaces because it offers a play area for the kids, and can be a cute-little hideout venue for them.
Deck & Pool
A lavish house needs to have a timber-wood deck with a heated swimming pool, preferably with an inbuilt jacuzzi to stay true to its word. Such installations will give you an option to shake off your stress every evening by sitting beside your heated pool with a beer in one hand and a club sandwich in another.
The kitchen space should be designed to provide convenience and comfort because this space will carry out most of your daily work, that is cooking meals and snacks. Have a double-storey dishwasher and dryer, a wall wine cabinet beside the counter, two-in-one kitchen & breakfast counter and rotating cutlery & kitchenware drawers to make the most out of your available space.
The ambience of this room is what matters the most because it needs to provide you with utmost comfort and relaxation for a good night’s sleep. So make sure the following two options have suitable amenities to prove the above statement:
Your kid’s room does not require a lot many amenities, but it should be adorable, and as per her taste, so that she feels safe and comfortable every night. A soft bed with cute little pillows and her favourite cartoon-ish bed sheet can be the perfect interior design for her. You can even install a study table on one side, and the bed can be elevated, and accessible with a small ladder, like a bunk bed-one, right beside it.
To utilise your bedroom space, instead of having a separate walk-in closet and bathroom, why not combine the two? Add a dressing in it too, and you are good to go. Inbuilt bed storage spaces are ubiquitous, under-the-floor storage spaces aren’t. Think about it!
The attic is just like your outdoor living space, which offers you a place to test your creative skills. You can turn it into a home theatre area, personal study or merely a storage room, or even install a floor bed with hundreds of pillows to make it the cosiest room on Planet Earth; the best place for your romantic movie date or your kid’s slumber party.
Garage spaces are the most underestimated places because no one cares much about the available space in their garage. Something you should reconsider quickly! Just like you install top-notch security features, like steel gates and grills, on your business premises, your house needs similar security upgrades to ensure the safety of your loved ones. There is much more to your garage space than just to park your car, such as:
Workshop & Storage
You can create a workshop space inside your garage if you design it carefully. Create decorative paintings or wood sculptures, and enjoy your hobby in your garage with ease. A small section for your workshop with sufficient storage space on the side can be what you actually desire for!
The living room space is something that you can add a lot too. A dining space on the side, a couch & some recliners in the centre, a huge LCD on the front wall and what not! Other add-ons can be a stairs-cum-bookshelf, a wine cabinet, a secret safe for your valuables and many more. What you need to be sure of is the fact that the available space is not wasted, no matter what!
Not every house is spacious enough to accommodate a basement, but if yours does, then enjoy the benefits. The following are some suggestions for your basement space; make the most of it right away:
The most common idea is to turn it into a storage area where you can dump everything that you don’t often use; from old furniture to your old luggage. It will help you clear off some space in your living area, which can be used for something more useful.
If you are fond of wines, then having a basement means you have the perfect place for your elite wine collection. Design a rustic, wooden wine cellar and carve spaces to make sure your wines are displayed beautifully and safely.
You can also turn your basement into your man cave by adding a pool table, foosball table, some vintage knives and swords, some antique urns or/and stuffed animals if you are into taxidermy. It can be the perfect place for you to hang out with your best buds!
