Remodeling Your Home So It Works for Your Family

Hi, I'm Veronica, and welcome to my blog. I first realised my home was no longer suitable for us when I went to a friend's house for dinner and she finished cooking a whole hour quicker than I would have! My house was great when my husband and I were the only inhabitants, but it just didn't work for a family with three kids. Luckily, our next door neighbour, Toby, was a remodeling contractor. Toby taught us so much about home remodeling and eventually renovated most of the rooms in our house so they were fit for our family. I'm eternally grateful for the information Toby shared with me, so now I'm passing on the good deed by posting the advice here for you.


5 Custom Cabinets to Help Keep Your Home Tidy

There are all kinds of custom cabinetry you may want to consider for your home. In particular, if you want to keep your home as tidy as possible, the right cabinets can help. Consider the following designs.

1. Built-in Laundry Bins

Get piles of laundry off the floor with custom laundry cabinets for your laundry area. You can opt for a tilt-out design. When closed, it looks just like a cabinet, but when you pull it out, you basically have v-shaped bins that you can put dirty clothing into. Ideally, you want at least two spots—one for colours and one for whites.

Alternatively, you may want pull-out shelves that you can place plastic laundry bins on.

2. Pull-Out Shelves

Pull-out shelves aren't just for the laundry room. You may want to consider this type of custom cabinetry for other parts of your home as well. In particular, pull-out shelves work great for food and pantry items. When you can pull out the shelves, it makes those areas easier to keep clean. You don't have to worry about bits of flour, bread crumbs or other items collecting in the back of your cabinets.

3.  Small Broom Cabinets

Most homes have a large closet where you can put brooms, but if you want cleaning to be easy, you may prefer a small cabinet that keeps your brooms and mops within easy reach. For example, some people put custom broom cabinetry next to their fridges. Basically, you want a thin cabinet with hooks you can attach the brooms to.

4. Built-in Cabinetry for Your Dog

If you have a dog, you likely have to deal with the occasional bits of dog food and spilled water on the floor. To keep these items tidier, talk with a cabinetry expert about putting in a special built-in area to hold food bowls. Additionally, you may want built-in cabinets or nooks where you can place dog beds. That keeps them from cluttering up the floor.

5. Cutting Board Slots

Large cutting boards tend to not fit easily into standard kitchen cabinets. As a result, you may often have a cutting board messing up your space, especially if you do a lot of cooking. To keep it out of the way, consider having someone build a custom slot where you can store your cutting board. Alternatively, think about putting in a cutting board that's attached to a track so you can pull it out and use it as desired.
