Smart Storage Solutions: Enhancing Your Space with Innovative Home Remodeling

Posted by Lane Cooper on Mar 26, 2024 8:23:34 AM


In a city like Portland, where the charm of historic homes meets the needs of modern living, maximizing space can be a challenge. As leading experts in home remodeling in Portland, we understand the importance of thoughtful design and creative solutions to transform your home into a functional and organized sanctuary. One of the key aspects of any successful remodel is incorporating innovative storage solutions that not only optimize space but also enhance the aesthetic appeal of your home. 

How Do I Maximize Storage Space With Home Remodeling?

Let's explore some storage solutions that our Design Build company can build to elevate your living space:

1. Custom Built-In Shelving

Say goodbye to cluttered bookshelves and hello to custom built-in shelving solutions. Whether it's a cozy reading nook, a stylish entertainment center, or a functional mud room, our team can design and build custom shelving units that seamlessly integrate with your home's current architecture. By maximizing vertical space, we can create storage solutions that not only showcase your belongings but also serve as a focal point in any room. If you are looking for a fresh, modern take on built-ins, consider floating shelves. They are great for showcasing family treasures while keeping a clean, trending look.


2.  Outdoor Storage Solutions

Portland's temperate climate encourages outdoor living, but limited outdoor storage space can be a challenge. Our remodelers can design and build custom outdoor storage solutions to keep your patio, deck, or garden area tidy and organized. Imagine incorporating built-in benches with hidden storage or custom sheds and pergolas with integrated shelving to make the most of your outdoor space.

3. Clever Closet Systems

Closets are often overlooked spaces that have the potential for significant storage enhancements. Our team specializes in designing and installing custom closet systems tailored to your needs. The creative possibilities are endless: walk-in closets with built-in shoe racks and jewelry drawers, reach-in closets with adjustable shelving and hanging rods, or custom hat and tie racks. Every inch of space can be maximized to keep your wardrobe organized and easily accessible. Do you travel a lot? Consider a luggage island in your walk-in. Built to store your suitcase when not in use, you can also use the island top when it’s time to pack.


4. Multi-Functional Furniture

In small or multi-purpose rooms, choosing furniture that serves dual purposes is essential. Our team can give you resources to get custom multi-functional furniture pieces, such as storage benches, built-in window seats with hidden storage, or coffee tables with lift-up tops. These pieces not only provide additional storage but also help streamline your living space, making it more versatile and efficient.


5. Under-Stair Storage Solutions

Don't let the space under your stairs go to waste! Our designers can transform this often-overlooked area into valuable storage space. Whether it's a built-in wine rack, a cozy reading nook with integrated bookshelves, or pull-out drawers for shoes and seasonal items, we'll work with you to design under-stair storage solutions that are both functional and visually appealing.

6. Kitchen and Bathroom Cabinetry

The kitchen and bathroom are two areas where efficient storage is crucial. We specialize in designing and installing custom cabinetry that maximizes storage while enhancing the beauty of these spaces. From pull-out pantry shelves and corner lazy susans in the kitchen to built-in medicine cabinets and vanity storage in the bathroom, we'll help you make the most of every inch of space.


7. Garage Organization Systems 

The garage is another area ripe for storage innovation. Our team can install custom organization systems to keep tools, sporting equipment, and seasonal items neatly stored and easily accessible. Popular choices include wall-mounted shelving with overhead racks and specialty storage for bikes and kayaks. We can help you reclaim your garage as a functional extension of your home. 

8. Attic Conversions 

Many Portland homes feature attic spaces that often go unused or become a catch-all for clutter. Our remodelers can transform these areas into functional living spaces with clever storage solutions. Are you dreaming of a cozy loft bedroom, a home office with built-in shelving, or a playroom for the kids? We can design a custom solution that maximizes space while maintaining the architectural integrity of your home.
