Storage Solutions for Luxury Homes

One of the most common questions our clients ask is how they can get as much storage as possible into their new home. 

Whether it is the kitchen, laundry or even the garage, maximising storage throughout the home is almost always included in the design brief. And the luxury of having a custom home builder is that everything – including storage – can be tailored to suit your needs.

Each room has the potential to provide practical, yet well-appointed storage solutions, and here are our suggestions on where you can add that extra space.

 

 

Bedroom

A stunning, walk-in robe may be every girl’s dream, but it is also sensible. A cleverly designed fit-out customises the amount of hanging space, shelving and drawers you need, as well as providing a place to house shoes, handbags, belts and jewellery.

With organisation taken care of, the luxury factor can really be upped with the addition of feature lighting or a dressing table.

 

Kitchen

The kitchen is the heart of the home, and while there are a lot of practicalities that go into it, our clients also want their kitchen to look incredible.

With appliances, glassware, crockery and so many other things to fit in, getting as much storage as possible into this room is vital.

This is easily achievable through an individually designed fit-out with quality cabinetry that looks great and allows your kitchen to be the functional, workable space it should be.

The addition of a scullery is also convenient and practical, providing the perfect place for a dishwasher, wine fridge or to store large appliances and hide the microwave. Extra bench space and a sink makes it simple to prepare meals while leaving a clutter-free kitchen, especially when entertaining.

   

 

Study

Whether you work from home, want a conventional study or even an area for the kids to do their homework, there are some necessities when it comes to this room, including bookshelves, drawers, filing cabinets and desk space.

Up the luxury factor with attractive built-in cabinetry in a beautiful finish, with a custom design guaranteeing the organisation, space and storage you need.

 

 

 

Laundry

One of the smallest, yet busiest rooms in a house is the laundry, so organised storage is key.

Maximise storage with well-appointed closets, cupboards and shelving so that everything from cleaning products and equipment to linen can be kept tidily.

And if you are sick of finding somewhere to keep that bulky ironing board, consider installing a fold-down one to save on space.

Garage

Not just a place to park the cars, the garage is a great place to store gardening equipment, tools, bikes and sports equipment.

An easy way to double your floor space is to look up. Over-head storage a great option in the garage or shed, which often gets quickly cluttered with objects that are indispensable, yet used infrequently.
