How to Increase Living Space for Your Custom Home

To increase space for your custom home, consider the following features and tips:

1. Create an Organized and Efficient Kitchen

The kitchen will be the heart of your home regardless of the layout and aesthetic style you choose. As the space where family members and guests gather, your kitchen requires significant consideration to ensure that it strikes a balance between appeal and functionality. While you may be tempted to focus on your appliances, countertop materials, and backsplash, it is equally important to consider the number of cabinets and drawers in your space. It is also crucial to ensure that your kitchen is organized in a way that is easy to cook in and move through. This will ensure that you always have enough space to cook while safely entertaining guests and spending time with family members instead of feeling cramped or confined in an appealing but inefficient space.

2. Construct Multi-Purpose Rooms

Modern homes typically utilize an open floorplan with fewer walls, creating a breathable and open space that is highly customizable. By opting for larger, open spaces instead of small and enclosed rooms, you can use certain rooms in your home for multiple purposes. For example, you can use one room as a home office and workout area with some built-in storage instead of using 3 different rooms for these purposes. This will allow you to reduce the number of walls required for your home while allowing for an open feeling and efficient flow between rooms.

3. Think About the Future

When designing your floorplan and choosing storage systems for your custom home, it is crucial to consider if your space will suit your needs 1 year, 5 years, and 10 years in the future. This will help to ensure that your home is still a great fit for you, your family, and your lifestyle even if they change significantly.

4. Creative Shelving and Storage

Creative shelving and storage solutions can drastically reduce clutter and free up floor space by giving you a dedicated space to keep various items. Consider utilizing aesthetic wall-based shelving, under-stairs storage, and unique cabinetry to maximize storage space while preserving the appeal and flow of your home.
