When you’re looking forward to planning out your new home, you’re often hit with a design dilemma – do you prioritize looks or function in your space? Interestingly enough, right the right mindset and an eye for what works in your new home, you don’t have to sacrifice great design for a very useful space! When you partner with Vanacore Homes – your premier builders in Palm Coast – to build your dream house, it’s easy to take advantage of all the best that your beautiful new space has to offer. Read on for a few tips and décor ideas to help you get started!
Storage Opportunities Abound
Are you hoping to keep your space looking as clean and uncluttered as the day you walked in? That may seem like an unachievable goal when you begin moving in all your possessions. However, it’s an easy task to find new spaces for storage in unexpected places – like the furniture you choose! Opt for pieces which incorporate more hidden storage. This might mean adding in storage ottomans, which can double as a quick place to stow living room clutter. Alternatively, storage-focused side tables might be a great option – like metal basket tables that make a perfect home for that extra knit throw blanket or set of decorative pillows.
Make Your Entryway Effective
To find one of the most important spaces in your home, you don’t really have to travel far. In fact, you’ll encounter it right when you walk through the door! Amp up your entryway with some décor that’s sure to make a good first impression – and that will welcome you home in a very practical and convenient way each day. Add some wall hooks or even cubby space if you’re looking to store coats, shoes, umbrellas, or any other outdoor items that you don’t want to bring further into the home. For added practicality, add in a bench or comfortable chair for removing shoes, as well as a table to place keys, mail, or anything else you might need to quickly drop off on your way into or out from the home.
Take Full Advantage of Shelving
Shelving might be the most obvious place to store things in your space – but, we’re not always using it effectively or in the best-looking way to accent our décor! If you’re working with kitchen shelves or another storage space, remove the hassle of sorting through boxes of different sizes by keeping clear storage boxes or jars handy. This way, you can achieve a clean, cohesive look for the space while also making it easier to find the items you’re seeking! But beyond this, there’s plenty of other tools to help beautify your shelving storage. To mask contents from the public eye, try adopting some basket storage to help conveniently sort your items for later use. Some items – like your favorite mug collection – deserve to be better seen. So, opt for adding some hooks to the bottom of a shelf, elevating them to create even more storage below!
