Whether you’re building a new home or considering a renovation, it is important to think about the best use of space for you and your family. No matter which route you decide to go, we will work with you to ensure the best use of space for your family. At Greystone, we encourage customization. If you’re building new, start with one of our floor plans as a foundation and then add-on your dreams. In this blog, we’ll help you get started with some of our favourite ways to maximize space in your home.


Our top 5 ways to maximize space in your home!


Built-in shelves, closets, and bookshelves are a great way to maximize space and create beautiful design features. When you start your new build or renovation, start by considering your space and how it could improve. Are you constantly staring at kid’s toys scattered all over the living room? Stuffing things in your closet with abandon? We have storage solutions for you.

2. Open concept living

Taking out a wall during your renovation can create longer and airer spaces with clear sightlines extending from one end of the house to another. You can make the most of an open concept style with these three tips: 

  • Utilize a large centre island:

    A large centre island can be a storage area, a prep area, and an informal eating area for you and your family. What kind of island will suit your family best? Better get to your pinterest board!

  • Create intentional spaces

    Create spaces using rugs, lighting, and furniture. Lighting is a really great way to create unique spaces in your home, and we can work with you to choose fixtures that will really shine.  

  • Hidden storage:

    Hidden storage can help eliminate clutter, whether it’s cords, the family board game collection, or blankets. Maybe you incorporate a breakfast nook with a built-in bench that doubles as a storage solution, a galley-style pantry, or a clever bohemian basket for those extra cozy blankets. How can we maximize your space? 

3. Innovative closet solutions

How can we customize the closets in your home to best accommodate your needs? No need to cram or stuff or shove –– we can get you the walk-in closet of your dreams. Our floor plans also prioritize closet space, so you don’t have to worry about how you’ll accommodate your shoe collection!


4. Double up!

Save yourself the hassle of sharing space in your bedtime routines. A double vanity can have a big impact on your experience of your bathroom. Double kitchen sinks are a great way to make your kitchen routines 100% percent easier. Maybe you need double ovens too? We think yes.


5. Extend those cabinets

You can maximize space and storage by taking your kitchen cabinets to the ceiling. Not only does it look chic, but it also eliminated the need to clean the tops!
