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 placed our categories in the spaces they would eventually live in, so that we could easily see what we needed to accommodate. I then designed a space that would 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, leading us to work there next. We went to the lower level back stock pantry as well, where we knew we would find like and inter-connected inventory to the kitchen.
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.
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.
