Opening closet space eliminates harsh boundaries and creates the impression of more space. This approach is much easier to design and helps save money.

The kitchen is ALWAYS busy. Friends, family and guest all congregate in the kitchen. Therefore, it is important to create a kitchen that is functional and welcoming. Vertical storage shelving in your pantry is a good place to start. You should use drawer organizers for dry goods and food storage containers.

Also, narrower appliances will give the impression of more space. You should consider recessing portions of drywall or backsplashes. The key is to always take a minimalistic approach. Start by determining what items are absolutely necessary and what items you can do without. This simple step will help create the context for better space utilization.
