It’s all about space, and large spaces are not always better. The arrangement of the horizontal surface is the key. In this discussion, I want to talk about the space between the horizontal surfaces.
There are always horizontal spaces in our world that either work, or cause us to work harder. Examples are the kitchen or bathroom counter tops, the dining room table, dressers, the desk, even the sink. Even the bed is a HS raised to a level easier to access. All these items increase functionality by bringing the horizontal surface up to a better altitude.
When I go into a home, regardless of its square footage, if the horizontal surfaces are not utilized or inadequate, there is waste and disorganization. This, ultimately, leads to chaotic living.
In storage spaces such as the bedroom closet or the kitchen pantry, the key to a more manageable organizational system is maximizing horizontal surfaces. If the shelves we place items on are vertically over-spaced, things get stacked and lost. Other examples of chaos, found in the closet, are the clothes folded and stacked and lost or the shoes piled on the floor.
In summary, don’t skimp on horizontal surfaces. Whether it’s shelving, drawers, or any of the other numerous options More Space Place is able to work into your design, maximizing horizontal surfaces is key to creating an organized space. We’re passionate about maximizing space. We work with clients with homes of varying sizes, but we are always ready and able to design an organized space, regardless of size.
