How To Maximize Space In A Small Family Home
How To Maximize Space In A Small Family Home. we were looking for a house and this house it’s in the really nice neighborhood family-oriented I see mother’s walking around all the time with their kids and I was pregnant at the time it’s a small space and we weren’t sure whether we could stay for a long time because we don’t want to have just one kid but it was the only thing that we could afford at that time the first thing we tackle ways we remove the wall papers everywhere in the closet and the floors were finished then we said oh you know what if we put in this much work with me as well just do the whole thing so we just got it out of my favorite room in this house is the kitchen and the dining room just because it’s so multifunctional the kitchen was actually in the back where the barn door is right now so it was way too small.
So we have to move it into this room and the kitchen is just something that I always wanted with a white kitchen we need a table that fit into this space and it was long enough for us to use and rock really likes one that so then he built a table and this is the line that we like because it’s just simple and modern enough for the space the bench is actually from the old mental the woods on the omental is come with I don’t think you can find come with any more but we just didn’t want to throw away the mantle solrock reconfigured it and made into a bench and it’s nice because you come and you look out and you see the window right way and the fact that we salvaged the leaded glass window from our mudroom and framed it and then we put it up so it’s something that reminds us of the old has so right off the kitchen in the back is a mudroom and the powder room and I wanted to have a door that when you come and you see it and we didn’t have the space to have a hinged door so it has to be a sliding door so i really love the barn to idea and we just couldn’t find barn door hardware anywhere so then rock just decide to build it we have a company called 1925 workbench and because he built the barn door hardware if i’m looking for something like that people must be looking for something like that – and that’s how we started the business we make custom furniture such as the console and the table here in the bench and also the custom doors and the barn door hardware in the family room we have rocks favorite piece which is the Douglas fir because that was something that he really wanted was a solid table so he built the coffee table just so that it looks like it’s a solid piece of wood I think solid wood has its own feel and it would never go our fashion or our style and then.
I needed work in space at Rock built this walnuts and baltic birch plywood workspace for me and we built this long piece of built-in book bench we call it because you can put books at the bottom and then people can set the top and the baby actually can play on top too upstairs we have two bedrooms and then and kai shares that one bedroom and we have a Bedford and equipped for kite we actually also have a barn door up there because then you don’t have to swing the door open and that becomes a space where we can put shelf ins and thanks for chi the other room is our bedroom it’s a really small room you know it fits the bed and a little side table but we’re happy with it because it’s really bright so it’s nice the favorite part is actually creating custom furniture and it’s nice that once it’s done you have it in your house way when you get to see the finished result and you know you you feel good because you you did it right and it’s if it’s your home and it was made for the home if I could find a word to describe this house it would be home eat clean comfortable it is a dream house but because of the size and the babies i can tell that they’re getting a little antsy but it would be completely difficult for us to leave it I think we’re so attached to this house
