Go Vertical

Storage doesn’t have to stop at the tops of your bookshelves. Take advantage of the vertical space in your new home design and incorporate tall cabinets and shelves in the bathrooms, kitchen, closets, office, garage and even great room.

Staircase Storage

When building a multi-story home, install a closet, cabinet or drawers in the area under the stairs.

Attic Transformation

Instead of leaving an attic unappealing and bare, ask Oregon home builders to install built-in shelves, flooring and lighting. These small extras will make the attic feel more comfortable when you need to put away and retrieve the items that you stored.

Built-In Seating

If your new home includes a large window or a bay window, install built-in benches that double as storage spaces. As you furnish your home, look for other furniture items that can double as storage, like ottomans that open or coffee tables with drawers.

Butler’s Pantry

The ability to buy food and supplies in bulk can quickly congest your pantry and garage. Incorporate a butler’s pantry in your new home design as a place to store the extra food items and kitchen accessories that you use on special occasions.

A Big Garage for Your Big Car

You don’t have to try to squeeze around your SUV or car. Portland, OR home builders can make garages that are at least 22 feet deep and include a dedicated area for your workbench so you can use the garage for more than just storage.
