August Newsletter: Refresh Your Home

        As we bid farewell to July, it seems like time as flying as we roll into August and another school year.  It's this time of year I love to think about refreshing spaces.  It's at this point, you can appreciate more functionality throughout your home with those hectic mornings racing against the clock.  Even more, enjoying the look and feel of your home can boost you more than your morning cup of joe and relax you more than a glass of wine after a long day.  So this August, we challenge you to take a look at your home.  How can you refresh your space to serve you better? 

        A face lift can be anything from rethinking your paint colors and accenting with soft goods or it can mean a total reimagining of the space with full renovation to boot! Seeing your space come to life through thoughtful subtractions and additions can create that polished look with all the comforts your require.

        Mud rooms continue to serve as a catchall for the house to keep your house decluttered but without thoughtful planning, this area can become it's own chaotic beast.  Identifying your needs can help you understand the changes to be made.  If you're an 'on the go family,' a pet-loving home, or gardening enthusiasts, your needs will be phenomenally different.

No matter your lifestyle, a little extra storage never hurt anyone!  The key to getting organized and staying that way, is to create dedicated storage that helps you cut down on the clutter and keep everything easily accessible.  Think hooks, shelves, cabinetry, baskets, bins, and cubbies!

Family Hub
When your mud room is located close to the kitchen, this can become the homework destination!  Close enough to ask questions and keep your eye on things, but removed to allow for concentration, creating a desk for homework or organized mail center can be just the ticket to a functional space.  

Have Fun With It!
While a mud room is an excellent utilitarian space, don't forget aesthetics!  It's the boost you'll get walking out the door in the morning and the deep sigh of relief when you return home.  Consider this in the context of your home's design style and grow from there.  And as always, don't forget the details!
