Today’s homeowners are looking for as much storage as possible. With more people working from home, people are looking to maximize the amount of storage. More organized spaces for office items or home gym equipment (as well as all those online purchases!) has become crucial to homeowners and potential buyers.
Here are the three most in demand storage solutions:
- Separate pantry in or off the kitchen to store not only food but those items and small appliances that are used not as often to keep counters clear and tidy
- Hidden storage and custom built in cabinetry to hide kids’ toys and other daily items
- Bigger closets – and more of them!
For new builds especially, buyers are looking for a large primary walk-in closet. With home design shows, Pinterest, Instagram, or even getting a peek into celebrity homes through reality television, people have become more in tune with luxury master closet design in recent years. Homeowners are looking for a master closet with a quality built-in storage system that is both beautiful and functional, by providing as much storage as possible to keep their spaces neat and organized (think Netflix’s Home Edit!).
Many of the new storage solutions we’re seeing are inspired by the rising popularity of tiny homes, which need to utilize every square inch as efficiently as possible. Many of the unique ideas for storage in tiny homes are being implemented into regular home design, like hidden built-ins under staircases or more closed storage/shelving.
