Ways to Incorporate More Storage into Your Home

There’s no such thing as too much storage space, especially in a city like Chicago. Whether you’re renovating your home or simply looking for creative ways to add more storage, our home contractors in Chicago can be of assistance.

Hang Things More Often

It’s important to take advantage of every square foot you have, and sometimes, this means hanging things like tv cabinets, towel racks, pot racks, coat racks, bookcases and other shelving units. This allows you to take advantage of the opened-up floor space, and it will make the room seem bigger.

Built-In Storage

Our home contractors in Chicago are experienced in thinking outside the box when it comes to storage space. This often includes incorporating hidden storage spaces in unexpected places. Benches, ottomans, beds and kitchen islands are a great way to add storage in a sleek way. You can also consider building a wine rack into your wall if space permits.

Nooks Are Your Friend

Many homes have nooks and crannies that you may be tempted to ignore. If you have a small corner of your home that goes unused, consider adding a chair and some shelving to create a reading corner.

Kitchen Renovation? Make Sure There’s an Island

If you’re in need of new construction in Chicago, MK Construction & Builders, Inc. is here to accommodate all of your needs. Kitchen renovations are especially exciting, as that seems to be the place where guests inevitably end up when you’re hosting an event or gathering. Kitchen islands are an essential part of both an aesthetically pleasing and functional kitchen. Here’s why we’re loving kitchen islands.

Extra Seating

Islands are perfect for extra seating during entertaining or everyday use. Small islands and big islands alike, they’re the perfect place to sit down as a family to eat breakfast before beginning your day or sit and have drinks and appetizers during happy hour.

Extra Storage

If you’re installing or upgrading your kitchen island, installing functional cabinetry in your island will make a huge difference when it comes to storage space. Think drawers, pull-out shelves, and cabinets. If you want to add an extra touch of character, you can make the cabinet doors clear for a decorative aspect.

Kitchen Center Point

Whether it be your intention or not, everyone will congregate around the island. It serves as the focal point of your kitchen. It’s the perfect place to prepare food, play family games, eat and mingle. It’s just as much of a social staple as it is a functional staple. Not to mention, it will make your kitchen look great as well.
