Fairfield Interior Design Series: Design & Functionality: Strike the Perfect Balance

Fairfield Interior Design

Considering hiring a Fairfield Interior Design company? Work with us for creative design for storage and functionality.

Welcome to my Fairfield Interior Design Series on striking the perfect balance between design and functionality.

I believe all of my Fairfield neighbors should love coming home, and that a beautiful home doesn’t have to be expensive. I also believe that Functional design is imperative in a home. If you live in a small space, each piece of furniture should be functional and beautiful. A pedestal sink may look pretty, but gives you absolutely no storage capability. A beautiful mirror is nice – but a pretty, functional recessed medicine cabinet gives you somewhere to put all your “stuff”. You can never have enough cabinets in the kitchen. A place to put things away leads to less clutter and chaos. Which in turns leads to less stress.

The biggest complaint I hear from my Fairfield Interior Design clients is the lack of storage space.  I am a firm believer that less is more.  A clean and organized home provides peace and harmony. I love these under cabinet storage solutions. They are perfect for small kitchens that are tight on storage space and any size bathroom.

Almost all cabinets have this extra space, but it is usually covered with molding. In the kitchen, you can use it to store baking pans, roasting pans, kitchen linens, seldom used utensils, placemats, anything shallow. It can also be customized for pet food bowls.  In the bathroom, it almost takes the place of the medicine cabinet. A scale would fit perfectly in one of these drawers.  Extra towels and toiletries could be stored nicely.

The idea of tapping into wall studs for more storage is also ideal for small kitchens. It would be an awesome pantry.

So when it comes time to renovate the kitchen or bathroom, remember this extra storage idea.

I have a unique ability to help clients identify on an emotional level what they don’t like about their homes and what they wish they could have. I am able to help them articulate the problem and then translate the dissatisfaction into a concrete solution. Most of my Fairfield area clients are unhappy with aspects of their home but don’t know why or what to do about it. Considering hiring a Fairfield Interior Design company?
