Efficiency in Design: Space-Optimization Techniques for Custom Homes

Jan 30, 2024

These days, space optimization is one of the biggest topics in the custom home design world. Everyone wants to make sure their new dream home has the proper amount of storage so that keeping the house clean and tidy is a more manageable task. In fact, if you landed on this page, you’re likely one of those soon-to-be homeowners who is looking for the best ways to incorporate storage and save space in your new home. So, let the experts at Steamboat Home Specialists help. Here are some of great space-optimization techniques we’ve found useful for custom homes: 

Multi-Functional Furniture Is Always a Plus 

One of the keys to optimizing space is investing in furniture and décor that can be used for multiple purposes. That can mean incorporating a sofa bed into the design of your home, or it can involve ottomans with storage and coffee tables. Furniture that can double up in function can save you from having to plan for separate storage pieces that take up space (and give you an extra piece of furniture to dust and clean!). 

You Can’t Go Wrong With Built-In Storage in Custom Cabinetry 

Custom cabinetry and shelving is not only a great way to optimize space and add storage room, but it can also bring a new level of visual interest to your custom home design. Recessed storage takes it one step further, with niches and alcoves being other options to consider. Ultimately, that’s the beauty of designing custom cabinets, as it gives you a chance to build them in a way that best suits your needs. 

Get Creative With the Available Space You Have 

You don’t need to fill up every inch of your home’s square footage in order to optimize space. However, take advantage of the available space you have and get creative. There are plenty of ways to utilize the different corners and awkward spaces within your home without making it look cluttered. An experienced custom home design specialist can help you with that, of course.

 Josh recently replaced all my windows and doors and I couldn’t be happier! He was communicative, very professional, gave great recommendations, and the end result far surpassed my expectations. I would highly recommend Josh. I had a great experience working with him, especially as an out of town homeowner. 
 I've worked with many contractors on my rentals, Joshua by far was the most pleasant experience I've had in working with a contractor! I've referred him to my HOA as a solid point of contact for any and all contractor needs! 
 In Steamboat Springs, Material is hard to get and most home companies are quite unreliable. These guys on the other hand were very good. Josh is a man of his word. His work is clean and solid. His experience shows in how he plans a project. We are very pleased.
