Hanwell Whole Home (2021)
Growing family of four with mom working part-time shift-work outside the home and dad, a business owner, working full-time outside the home.
When they initially reached out, one of their priorities was to help to create a design in the newly added mudroom cleaning closet and seasonals closet that would facilitate their active cottage lifestyle.
Since the homeowners now had a proper cleaning closet in the mudroom addition, the cleaning products located in the existing laundry room / half bath were purged and relocated to the now blank slate cleaning closet.
The remaining items in the laundry room were organized inside these two overhead cabinets; laundry and medications using bins the client had on hand.
With the cleaning supplies purged we were able to design a closet to suit this family's needs. A kitchen design studio built and installed the system.
We gathered up all the inventory to be stored in the new seasonals closet and put it in the space so we could easily see what we needed to accommodate. I then designed a space that will allow easy access of seasonal items as well as a cottage in and out system. The homeowners had their kitchen design studio build and install.
Adjacent to the mudroom and laundry is the kitchen so next we went there and to the lower level back stock pantry where we knew we would find like and inter-connected inventory.
First we sorted and edited the spaces so that the client could clearly see excess.
Then, we measured and ordered product for the new system.
Next up is the kids bathroom. As is the case in many baths we work in, there were a number of forgotten products that we were able to purge. The clients wanted to simplify the inventory so that midnight bedsheet changes were efficient and stress free. We installed wire baskets with labels to keep the various size bedding together.
Since we were onto baths, next we went to the guest bath closet in the lower level. I sorted it. The clients edited (hard) and then we reappropriated a few pieces from the prime real estate in the upstairs linen closet to this one in the less accessible lower level.
Next to the guest bath is the guest bedroom. The bedroom itself was already in Love Your Space condition except the closet. Our client wanted a beautifully organized gift wrap closet.
To finish off the main level, we tackled the messiest room in the house; the storage room.
