You love your home, but sometimes, you wish it was a little more organized. It’s not always easy to have designated spaces when you have children, or when you’re busy, yet you know that could help to solve your problem. Although you love your home for the security and warmth it brings to your family; it’s sometimes nice to know that it has a purpose.
When you bring your work home and do the odd bit all over the house, you can sometimes feel like you’re all over the place. If your home is starting to feel a little chaotic, maybe having set rooms for things would help.
Giving your home a purpose and a clever design doesn’t mean you have to take the love out of it. You can still keep the style you love, and it will still feel like yours, but you can add in a little bit of control to each space to show that it clearly has a purpose. And then, you’re guaranteed to feel a whole lot more together.
In your main living space, you want to make sure that you can achieve the right atmosphere. Sometimes, your lounge will be the place that you all hang out and watch TV, but it can also be a room that you work in, eat in and where your children do their homework. That can add a lot of chaos into just one space. So, instead, try to see your main living area as a space to relax and wind in. To do that, you’re going to have to move the eating, working and studying elsewhere.
When it comes to your kitchen, it can sometimes give you a little anxiety. Whether you hate to cook, spend far too much time in there or are reminded of your fussy eaters, it can be a room that you love to hate. But, it’s time to change that. Instead, why not create a kitchen design, layout or look that you love. Depending on your budget, you could do a complete remodel, or just spruce of what you have to make it work a lot better. Think of the appliances and equipment you need to make it the right space for you to create incredible meals.
You may or may not have a home office at the moment, but you if work from home at all, it’s important that you do. While it might be okay to work on the kitchen counter, dining table, or bedroom for some, it’s not the most productive way to be. You should be associating your work with a space that stimulates your mind. Now that you know that, it’s time to spruce up that old study or convert a small room into an office space that makes you feel comfortable.
Having a set dining space can be ideal for families. Not only are you teaching your children the proper manners to have at the dinner table, but you’re also able to bond as a family. But, it’s not always an option logistically. So, you may have to judge things around a little. If you’re renovating, then you’ll have no problem, but if you’re not, it might be time for a good spring clean of a few spaces to create some room for dining.
When it comes to the master bedroom, you could see it for all sorts of things. It could be your place to sleep, get ready in the morning, do your makeup, read, do your work, watch TV - the options are endless. But, in reality, there should only be one or two - the main one being to sleep! If your master bedroom is messy and full of chaos, you might have trouble sleeping. Instead, transform it into a sleep-inspiring space with soft colors and comfortable bedding.
Your bathroom has a lot of functions, and the entire family uses it. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t make it into an incredible place. If you love to pamper and want to be able to relax in your bathroom, then why not think about transforming it into a spa? You can add incredible spa like features and designs that will add a level of tranquility and sophistication to create the bathroom of your dreams.
In the past, you may not have felt like there was a need to have a playroom in your house. However, as you’re trying to introduce purpose and functionality into every space in the house, you might also want to think about creating one. It might be okay for your children to play all over the house, but it could become a cleaning nightmare too. So, why not create a cool, fun and exciting room that they can play in and to keep all of the toys?
At the moment, your children’s bedrooms might have a design you love, or be cluttered with clothes and toys and be borderline out of control. Either way, what purpose do you want to create for each of them? Sleep is paramount, but storage doesn’t have to be (especially now that you’re warming to the idea of a playroom). And, as your children get older, studying will be an important activity too. Whether you choose to create a separate space in the house for this or do it their room, adding student desks can give your children a designated place to study and feel ready to work.
Adding purpose to your home doesn’t have to be kept to the inside, you can also add a level of practicality to your garden. You might already have a few spaces that you love, but you can always add more. In fact, your outside space can become an extension of your home. Without having to actually build an extension, you can make your garden into another room by using furniture. If you’ve always wanted an outdoor seating or dining space, now’s the time to do it.
