Most of us are in our homes a lot more than we are used to and noticing how our space functions, or rather doesn't. When thinking about how well your space works for you, you first need to start with these few points:
How do you move in your space?
How do you like to operate in this space?
What is visually important to you?
What systems do you have that are already working?
It's important to create functional space in your home that works for you. Customize it to your needs/desires by starting with these key questions.
