When planning and making selections for your new custom home or even for home renovations, space distribution plays a major role. Depending on your choices you can make efficient use of your space and create a sense of openness in your home. Sunset Homes, Calgary’s bespoke home builder, wants to share some ideas that will help make the most of your space.

Choose multipurpose rooms

Using fewer walls to divide your home is one of the best choices you can make to use your home space more efficiently. If you have in mind a two or three story custom home, your main floor could follow the open space concept and have your kitchen, dining room and living room all in one main area. This concept allows you to have more natural light in these areas as well as being able to keep an eye on your kids if they are in the living room while you cook.

Make your kitchen space stylish and organized

The most visited space in your home will definitely be your kitchen. You probably want your custom kitchen to look stylish and at the same time to offer you enough space to have everything you need to prep meals, and store and organize all your kitchen needs. You can opt for options like tall cabinets, big counter spaces, adding a cabinet cutout installed in a drawer, hidden spice racks, or built-in pantries.

Create the perfect atmosphere with lighting

Having different sets of lights and lamps in a room can make a big difference, also having dimmers will help you play with your custom home decor and make a room look more luxurious or open. You can learn some other tips in our blog 4 Useful Lighting Tips for your Luxury Inner City Home.

Personalize your closets

You can opt for built in, or walk in, closet space with multiple drawers and double rods. Plus special divisions for organizing your shoes and a space for laundry.

Choose an efficient laundry room

Your laundry room might be the last room you think about for maximizing space, but an organized laundry room with enough storage and drawers, can make your life easier and will help you do your laundry in a more efficient way. Allowing you to spend less time on this chore and helping you maintain and organize your home.
