Upgrades for Everyday Spaces
From your bedroom closet to your laundry room and your guest room, it seems like space is always at a premium at home. But with some strategic design tips and clever home organization solutions, you can make any room feel more spacious, organized, and versatile. Get started with these ideas.
PLAN THE PERFECT MASTER BEDROOM CLOSET
Sharing a closet with your partner can be a challenge, but if you follow a few simple steps, you’ll find there’s more to love for both of you.
Consider how much space each of you needs for everything in your wardrobe.
Split the closet into two sections with a central tower of drawers or a hutch to mark off your space.
Use double hanging rods to keep your everyday clothes within arm’s reach.
Include drawers that act as a built-in dresser to hold undergarments and socks.
Add a fold-down ironing board for last-minute touch-ups and a pull-out hamper for worn clothes.
Use adjustable slanted shelves to keep all of your shoes and boots on view.
SAVE TIME IN YOUR LAUNDRY ROOM
Ever wish you could spend less time doing laundry? Here are six quick ways to update your laundry room that will make this everyday chore faster and easier.
Take advantage of vertical space by adding a custom organization system with cabinets, shelves, hampers, and baskets.
Use pull-out laundry hampers to organize laundry as it comes into the room, and empty it into the washing machine when the hampers are full.
Try a space-saving fold-out ironing board that’s easy to stow off the floor and out of sight when not in use.
Add built-in hanging rods to air-dry delicates, and a slide-out valet rod to hold freshly ironed clothes.
Treat yourself to an open countertop where you have plenty of room to fold clothes.
MAKE ROOM WITH MURPHY BEDS
Looking forward to overnight guests or kids coming home from college? Turn any room of your home into a comfortable place to sleep with a space-saving Murphy Bed.
There when you need it and conveniently out of the way when you don’t, a Murphy Bed lets you get more use out of any space.
Bi-fold doors open wide for access to the bed, which holds a standard mattress to give your guests a good night’s sleep. Special locking hinges keep cabinet doors folded when the bed is down, and the doors close neatly to conceal the bed when not in use.
