28 Tuesday February 7 2017 SELWYN TIMES Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections in the Selwyn District Factor in your storage needs Storage requirements for any home are dependent on the number of people living there, their lifestyles and individual personalities. While some prefer a minimalistic environment, others may be collectors with interests and recreational pursuits presenting the need for space for bikes, fishing gear, wet suits, surfboards and more. Outdoors, a boat, caravan or motorhome may need to be housed. Some sub-divisions have covenants relating to where these may be parked so check this out before selecting a house design for a new build and choosing how to site the house on your section, to ensure these can be parked up in a compliant manner. Indoors, a home is tidier if possessions can be stored effectively. Organising the garage with cupboards and places for bikes, kayaks and the like, by perhaps hanging them on a wall or from the ceiling, will allow more space, as will locating the lawnmower and gardening tools in an outdoor shed. Attic trusses are another economic way to gain more space in a home. Usually sited in the roof of the garage, they offer a place where less used items can be tucked away. Install an attic ladder and you have a place for possessions that might be needed more regularly. The roof shape and pitch will influence whether trusses can be fitted; attic trusses may not be possible with a low pitched roof. Hall cupboards and storage rooms are a place for linen, blankets, the vacuum cleaner and a myriad of other miscellanea. If the hot water cylinder is sited in the roof cavity this will also increase the cupboard space. Alternatively, gas hot water means there is no cylinder. Wardrobe sizes vary. When looking at house designs: consider the size of these; what furniture will be needed for extra storage in a room; and whether there will be sufficient space given the floor area. In the kitchen, pantries are now desirable features. Have a mix of cabinetry with shelves, drawers and cupboards for storing breakables or items you do not want on view. Plenty of bench space will allow regularly used kitchen appliances like the toaster, electric jug, cake mixer or food processor to be left by a power point for quick and easy use. Consider too, an appliance cupboard, which can assist fast preparation especially with the first meal of the day. Where there are corner cupboards, a Lazy Susan might be fitted for better access to items stored within. Economics may determine whether you have a separate laundry or site this in the garage. In either case, if space allows, include a bin for dirty laundry and cupboards for storing soap powder, cleaning products, brooms and mops. Visiting show homes will help you gain an idea of space, storage options and how they fit within particular house designs. Wardrobe sizes vary between house designs. Hall cupboards offer extra storage capacity. Have a mix of shelves and cupboards in the pantry. In the laundry area, include a bin laundry and storage cupboards.
