Storage With a Purpose

Storage areas are not just a corner of the basement anymore. They can often be found in different part of the home, where it makes the most sense to store certain items—such as cleaning supplies in a kitchen pantry, and cabinets in the garage that house the family’s sports gear, including the sometimes odorous hockey bag!

Many homes have an area in the back entry or mudroom that serve as  “drop zone” for everyday items that would otherwise end up on the kitchen counter. Keys, cell phones mail, magazines, and work items can be kept close at hand and easily accessible, but out of the mainstream areas of the home, with a simple wall niche or counter area at the side entry of your home.

Ensuring your builder has a good sense of your family’s everyday needs and lifestyle will help them plan out storage solutions that will work for you.
