Make the most of your space with these stylish yet functional solutions.
Buying a home used to feel like a far-off life goal, but after years of renting — don’t even try to do the math on how much you’ve spent — you’re ready for a space you can truly call your own.
Imagine being able to choose the number of bedrooms and bathrooms that will work for you as you move into the next stage of your life, whether that involves moving in with a partner or making room for children. Investing in a property such as a Brookfield Townhome means paying roughly the same as you were when you were renting while also having the freedom to customize your dwelling. Plus, all of their townhomes include a private and secure garage, which means no more fighting to find parking or start your car in the dead of winter. Here are 10 storage solutions to help you make the most of your new home.
1. Use square shelves to display a combination of books and feature decor items such as framed photos or unique knick-knacks. There are also lots of great options for enclosing some of the shelves with a fitted bin or basket, or even a cabinet drawer to hide small or less display-friendly pieces.
2. A sophisticated mounted wine rack turns wall space into a display of sleek bottles (no matter their price point), leaving counters free for cooking or storing appliances such as toaster ovens and microwaves. But remember not to place the rack in direct sunlight, as it could cause the wine to spoil.
