Residential Design in Sutherland Shire - Ways to add extra storage space to your home renovation and extension

Our residential drafting design services in Penshurst explain that more storage space is on most homeowners’ wish lists, so why not factor it into your next home renovation?

Here our residential drafting service consultants explain how to practically add extra storage into your home renovation.

The place where you’ll want to make the most of your storage in obvious…your kitchen! Make sure you take a good look at your kitchen space before home renovations begin, and notice any ways in which the layout and cabinetry fit-out could be improved. Adding an island bench, if your kitchen space allows, will create bench preparation space plus under-bench storage. When it comes to cabinetry, drawers can be a more practical way to store items and come in all shapes and sizes. Overhead cabinetry is another handy way to utilise wall space to your advantage.

When it comes to the bedrooms, storage in the form of built in or walk in robes is vital. Making the most of your wardrobe means built-in robes sectioned with shelving, hanging space and overhead storage too.

For your laundry, you will need to make the most of the space you have. These days many people have their laundry looking like a mini kitchen, with ample bench space and cabinetry. Make the most of wall-space with a combination of overhead cabinetry and open shelving. Ensure you have the correct storage for ironing boards and clothes airers too.

For your bathroom the size will of your space will dictate just how much storage you can create. Consider under-vanity cabinetry with shelving and/or cupboards, additional towel rails, floating shelving and recessed open shelving. A feature cabinet can make a focal point while acting as storage for your bathroom too.

Your garage is full of opportunities to add handy out-of-sight storage during home renovations. Floor-to-ceiling shelving and wall hooks and floating shelving to the sides of garages make great storage out of an otherwise unused space. Storage cabinets on wheels may be a more practical and flexible option for your garage.
