Most of us would agree that some parts of our homes are more attractive than others. We all focus on decorating the living room and dining room where we entertain, and probably even the kitchen if you’re a “come on in and make yourself at home” sort of host. We spend lots of time looking for just the right painter or carpet installers texas that can make your dream room come to life. Those living areas may even flow together into the ever-popular great room, so it’s all well-appointed and coordinated.

But what if a guest inadvertently steps into the laundry room looking for the powder room? Will you be embarrassed? Will they? Just because the laundry room may be “family turf” that’s no reason for it to be like the ugly stepsister. Every area of your home should be delightful for you and presentable to guests, including bedrooms, laundry room, entryway or mudroom, pantry and even the home office where clutter goes to die. Here are some ideas from Tailored Living® to get you thinking about beautifying your whole home with innovative and functional storage solutions so there won’t be any off limits or embarrassing areas.

Make the laundry room work for you
If your washer and dryer are the lone rangers against family laundry, step up your game with custom cabinets, countertops and a utility sink. Pull-out laundry baskets keep dirty clothes out of sight, laundry products can disappear behind cabinet doors and hanging racks keeps clothes wrinkle-free from the dryer.
3D design software lets you use all available space
Not sure how to configure a small space? Let D’VinciTM and a Tailored Living designer show you how to best use all that marvelous vertical space. Design cabinets and shelves all around your appliances to accommodate your needs for organization and storage. What you see will definitely be what you get.
Dual-purpose rooms mesh perfectly with custom design
This laundry room/mudroom is the perfect complement for a busy family. Custom design gives each family member space to stow their own gear with cubbies, hooks and drawers. Dirty, wet clothes, towels and socks can go right into the wash without tracking mud into the rest of the house.
Your entryway can be neat as a pin
Custom entryway design can keep your family organized despite full schedules and tons of activities. Keeping everything handy for “next time out the door” ensures that schoolwork, jackets, hats and laptops won’t be forgotten in a rush. And when the dog needs a walk, the leash is right there; no excuses.
Small mudroom, big storage
Even a small space can accommodate a lot of storage and organization with a custom design. Enclosed storage hides clutter and high cabinets store seasonal items that don’t need to be out year round. When the seasons change, swap out the cold weather garb for warm weather and eliminate confusion.
An open home office that's fully functional
Not every home office is a room with four walls. This top-of-the-stairs loft area has been converted into a multiple-user space for work, homework, crafts and more. Custom cabinets, drawers and desktops ensure plenty of work and storage space for every user, keeping clutter to a minimum.
Maximize a small space with innovative design
Convert awkward space under a stairway into a neat, petite home office with all the trimmings. Desktop space, lighting, shelves, cabinets and drawers will keep your home office ready for work. Custom cabinets and shelves can perfectly match the colors and décor of the rest of your home.
Create a professional home office
Maybe you work from home full-time and need a big office. Tailored Living can help you design the home office of your dreams to rival any corporate office. Custom styles, colors and finishes allow you to create exactly the look you want to promote your business and impress clients.
Pantry storage for the whole family to enjoy
Don’t let your pantry harbor mysteries and hidden dangers. Custom pantry design can accommodate easy access for the kids’ snacks and drinks, safe storage for appliances, open shelves making it easy to clean and check expiration dates, and higher shelves to store seasonal items, adults-only beverages and your favorite snack.
Customize your pantry with specialty accessories
Some pantries are just for storage, some are actual work spaces, incorporating countertops and labor-saving devices. Wine racks, spice racks and heavy-duty drawers with full-extension slides keep everything you need for food prep right at your fingertips. Pizza stones, crystal serving dishes and over-sized pans are no problem to safely store.
