What Houzz contributors are saying:
3. Your space doesn’t work efficiently for you My ultimate goal is for my clients to love spending time in their spaces, surrounded by items they enjoy, with systems in place for efficiency. Home organisation should allow them to manage their daily routines with ease and should support their activities (such as entertaining, crafting or baking). In addition to making sure each room is used for the most pragmatic purpose, I recommend that clients incorporate ergonomics principles into their rooms. Your most used items should be within easy reach to maximise safety and efficiency.
Build a dividerIn this large space, the designers have created a nifty piece of furniture that does two jobs in one. Not only does it beautifully divide the dining area from the seating zone, it also incorporates masses of extra storage.The owners can use the internal shelves for glassware, tableware and any other pieces that won’t fit in the kitchen.
7. Combine a screen and storageIn this open-plan space, the designers have created an intimate living room area by separating it from the dining zone with a piece of carpentry. Rather than leave it as a simple screen, they’ve utilised the space by stashing storage inside. The wide screen opens up with a sliding door to reveal plenty of shelving for tableware and books.
