One of the biggest complaints people have about their homes is the lack of space. In reality, it’s often not so much a lack of space (as in, actual square footage) that’s the problem—it’s the way that space is designed and laid out.
There are a variety of ways that a home improvement project can help with organizational issues in the household. One of the most obvious (and popular) tactics is incorporating built-in features such as shelves, cabinets or little nooks. Clever, creative design strategies can also be a great solution for reducing visible clutter and keeping stuff out of sight—such as storage space located underneath a window seat, for example.
Layout can also make a big difference for how the home flows, and how clutter or cramped it may feel. Sometimes rearranging the way rooms are accessed or connected—by removing or relocating walls or doorways—can make a huge difference in how large or open the total area feels.
If you’re feeling too cramped or crowded in your home—or worry that the clutter makes you look disorganized and messy—discuss these concerns with your Scottsdale home improvement contractor. Most likely, they can suggest tricks for changing the layout of your space to help solve some of your storage challenges.
