You are no doubt extremely excited about building your new home and while it is indeed a very exciting experience, there are a few things that you will need to think about and remember when building your new home to make things move smoothly during the building process and to guarantee a problem free stay in your home for the next few decades.
One of the most important aspects to think about when building your new home is to build in as many unseen storage spaces in your home as you can. The reason for this is that through the years you are likely to collect a lot of things in your house from clothes to shoes to toys and not having the right amount of area to store things means that they are likely to start lying around your house causing your house to become cluttered and difficult to live in.
Be creative with your home and interior design
It would be useful for you to look online at creative furniture that has hidden, unseen storage space in it. This way, you will not need to have five cupboards and wardrobes taking up space in your home to store you things. For example, when choosing your couch and chairs, choose furniture that are box shaped and have the ability to store a drawer under the main seating area. Another example, is to have a bed that is designed with number of drawers underneath it. The trick is to choose places that would normally go unused and unnoticed so that you will be able to store things without anyone recognizing them to be storage units.
Above eye level
While it is advisable to avoid having numerous cupboards, wardrobes and other such units in your home, if it is an absolute must that you have one, it is advisable that you have those places above eye level hung on your wall. This way, your house will not be likely to look cluttered because there is space on the ground that is unoccupied.
If you have children or you intend on having children, it would be a great idea to have bunk beds in your home as opposed to regular double beds as they can take up a lot less space and give the illusion that a small space is much larger than it actually is. You may even have small cupboards used as the bed head of the bunk bed where your children can keep their essentials in order to avoid them getting misplaced and thrown around the house.
