Many of us lead very busy lives, and that is where good design can make an immense impact. Not only should our spaces look good, they should function spectacularly. And what constitutes good function for one person may not work for another.
That is why a plan tailored to your personality and lifestyle is critical. Here are some things to think about before you plunge into your next project.
GET SPECIFIC ABOUT HARDWORKING SPACES
The places where we concentrate on tasks deserve a lot of attention. Kitchens, bathrooms, offices, closets and utility rooms are used heavily and are often the places where clutter and frustration accumulate. Mundane tasks can become much more pleasant when the space is planned for you and the way you live. You may be inclined to fill the space with storage, thinking you'll make it work. Instead, get very specific about what you have to store and how you like to store it. That old adage "a place for everything, and everything in it's place" should be your mantra.
