Tax time is here. It is April! Ugh! I hate tax time! It seems papers are strewn around for weeks!
Have you ever walked into a room in your home and felt pinned down or anxious? Do you go into a room like an office to accomplish a task to find you have to put stuff away before you can start? How does that work for you? Me, well, I end up distracted and defeated often. I just decide to avoid the mess until later. Then the undone chore bugs me. As each day passes I feel more overwhelmed.
Maybe the rooms in your house are spacious with lots of storage. Many New Hampshire home owners remark they need more storage. Often the only solution they consider is buying furniture to add to a room. That can be a great solution. It can also create a feeling of more chaos if it is not planned well.
Wow, do we have lots of stuff! Most homes become cluttered simply because creating an organized place to store our favorite things never occurs to us. What do I mean? Let's talk about books. toys, shoes, boots, winter coats, craft and sewing supplies, pet supplies, laundry area storage.
Sometimes stuffing stuff into desk trays, baskets, drawers, or closets can hide the clutter. At least it feels a little better. However, feeling truly peaceful seems to escape us with those solutions.
How can cabinetry bring peace of mind? Here are some examples:
A wall of base cabinets and book shelves is perfect. Adding the installation of these storage solutions in a family room or office space within view of the kitchen is perfect. A custom home look is the result when you choose to expand your kitchen project to include the wall of storage in the family room. Selecting the same cabinet door style and finish will add the wow factor and peace of mind.
Cabinets to store toys, books, videos, DVD's and music keeps it all hidden yet right at your finger tips. The impact of organized storage is priceless.
Two other spaces perfect to add storage cabinets in are your mudroom and laundry room.
Cabinets with drawers or pull out trays that can hide shoes, or winter gloves, hats, and scarves
is so much nicer to come home to than hooks piled high with too many items. The laundry room is the perfect room to add tall storage as well as more base and walls cabinets to keep everything hidden.
Offices with built in file drawers, cabinets, printers hidden behind doors on roll out trays are heaven!
In fact we can build you a custom desk especially designed with your particular purposes and needs in mind. It can really be the spot where "there is a space of everything and everything is in it's place."
Finally, isn't is marvelous to end your day walking into your peaceful comfortable clean bedroom for restful retreat and sleep. I love to read in bed. My nightstands are piled with books, reading glasses, pens and journals. It is not clean or peaceful. All that is needed is my project for this year. Borrowing the idea of a family room bank of cabinets and bookcases on one wall is the plan. My sleep and peaceful rest is going to be improved this year. One either side of our bed the walls will host 24" deep drawer base cabinets with bookshelves placed on top of shallow 12 deep drawers. I cannot wait.
I feel more peaceful just designing it.
I hope I am stirring up your imagination. There are so many possibilities to improve your life as well as remodel your home. We would love to be part of creating your personal retreat center!
