Shelving may seem simple at first, but there are actually extensive options to choose from when it comes to shelving. Shelving can be incorporated in any part of your home from the kitchen, living room, bathroom, laundry room, everywhere! 

For your kitchen you may consider open shelving in combination with traditional cabinets to go for a trendy look. For the living room, you may want to add shelving to the sides of your TV as a place for decorations or a home library.

Another option would be to add floating shelving in the laundry room to store your detergents and other products. Moreover, you can add shelving to the bathroom to hold extra products or as a place for decor. 

Our home designer can help you through this process with picking out the functionality of each room and what would be accommodating for your household’s lifestyle. Schedule a consultation with us.

Central Vacuum System

Want to avoid carrying a heavy vacuum around your home and having to dump it out after every few uses? A central vacuum system may be the perfect feature for you.A central vacuum system is basically having a vacuum that is set into your walls. There’s a container that collects whatever you vacuum that is located where you choose for it to go (usually the garage).There is a portal on your wall that you connect a hose to. That hose then attaches to a vacuum that is specifically made for a central vac system, so whatever enters the vacuum will go through the hose, into the portal and then sent to the designated container area.For more ideas on what to incorporate into your home, take a look at “How to Increase Your Home’s Value”.
