26 Feb 3 Ways to Maximize Space in Your Custom Home
Once your custom home has been built, it’s time to settle in. However, before you jump right into moving all of your belongings into your new house, there’s something you should do first, and that’s to maximize the space within it.
You don’t want to immediately move all of your stuff in only to find out after the fourth box (of your belongings) that you don’t have enough space. Before settling in, ensure that each room has adequate space for all your furniture, appliances, and personal belongings.
If you figure out that unpacking would leave you with limited elbow and leg room, it’s highly advisable that you take some time to plan and organize before moving in. Ending up with inadequate space for your belongings in your custom home is still a possibility even if you have careful planning alongside your design-build team. So, before that predicament comes up, here are some tips that will help ensure that all of your possessions fit in your new home all while maintaining a spacious atmosphere:
1. Choose the Right Color Scheme
The color scheme for your custom home in the Algarve or Portugal can make such a huge difference in the overall look and feel of your living space. One way to make your home look and feel spacious is by using light and neutral colors. Bright colors may make your space feel smaller and cluttered. Plus, neutral colors are easy to paint over if you ever decide to change things up later on.
If you’re a fan of bright colors, then you may consider using a unified color scheme. You can combine your bright colors with a neutral shade so that it can be toned down as well as create a cohesive look.
Another creative way for you to play with your color scheme is by using it to create partitions between rooms. This can make each space feel unique and add character to your home. However, you need to avoid using too many colors because it can end up making your home look quite garish. Instead, you can choose one or two bright colors and use them sparingly for pops of personality throughout your home.
2. Reorganize Your Furniture
One of the simplest and most cost-effective ways to maximize your custom home’s living space is by moving your furniture around. By doing so, you can create a more open and inviting atmosphere. When you do this, you’ll find that there may be too many items cluttering up the place, and perhaps you’ll even realize that the couch or coffee table looks much better and gives more space in a different area than its current placement. Rearranging your furniture placement can make a huge difference in how your space functions. By moving things around, you can test out different layouts and ensure that your home is both beautiful and practical.
3. Create a Functional Entryway
While your entryway serves as the first impression of your home to your guests, it’s also the same area where you and your family members take off your shoes and hang your coats before entering the main living spaces. That’s why it’s in your best interests to create a functional entryway.
If you only have limited space in your entryway, you can opt to build a cabinet or add a table. This way, you’ll be able to place bags, backpacks on top while the shoes, slippers, and other footwear can go underneath. As for the coats and keys, instead of a coat rack that usually just takes up too much space, you can place heavy-duty hooks on the wall. With a functional entryway, you can stay organized and clutter-free.
