Thinking outside the box for storage
One thing you can never get enough of in a family home is storage and at Horizon Homes we can help you build clever storage options into your home during construction.
Every home has its own storage challenges. It could be that you need a home office with provides storage for your paper files. You might need large cupboards to store sporting equipment out of sight. Sick of not having enough linen storage? You might need temperature controlled storage for your wine collection near the entertaining area. Or perhaps you are dreaming of a luxurious dressing room, that provides beautiful storage for your clothes.
Plan carefully. It may sound obvious but if you are creating custom storage for something special as part of your new home build, measure it. Exactly how long is that kayak? How much wine do you have for your wine racks? Will your antique vases fit in that custom display cabinet?
Consider aesthetics: Do you want to make a feature of storage with open shelving? Or do you want your possessions out of sight? Is the custom joinery a feature of your home? Or are you after a more streamlined look, with hidden storage options?
Kitchen: What appliances will you always have on your bench and what needs to be hidden away? Be mindful of your chosen combination of drawers vs cupboards. Drawers are often a more practical way to store items. Pull-out shelving can be built into narrow spaces.
Bedrooms: Your walk-in robes need a combination of hanging space, shelves, drawers and overhead storage.
Bathrooms & en suite: Under-vanity cabinetry with shelving and/or cupboards provides the bulk of your storage in the bathroom, but you could also consider additional towel rails, floating shelving and recessed open shelving.
