Here at Holland Homes, we understand that there is both a significant investment and a significant amount of stress that can develop during a remodel. Remodels are fantastic for a wide variety of reasons. The main reason being because they give a customer the opportunity to personalize a home to ensure it fits all their needs. During a remodel, people often focus on the larger and more exciting features like the kitchen, the bedrooms, the bathrooms and the basement. Although exciting, these larger features can often lead individuals to forget the smaller factors that are just as important in terms of functionality of your home. One of the most commonly overlooked features is where to consider and place custom storage. A home with poorly placed storage or a lack of storage space can significantly decrease resale value. There is a wide variety of locations within a home where storage can be added. Holland Homes wants to provide our clients with some information on the most popular and unique locations to add custom storage solutions throughout a home.
