Rotate books to spark new interests. Once your bookshelves are neatly ordered, whether by subject, color or another method, it can be all too tempting to leave the books alone (they do look nice!) — but what’s the point of having a wonderful collection of books if you don’t get them out and read them? One suggestion for making the most of your home library is to periodically walk through and pull from the shelves a pile of books that currently interest you. Place these books around the house where you will notice them — on the coffee table, in a little pile beside your bed, etc. — and enjoy!
As you can see, it’s just a few steps from the dining room to the drawing room in this home. Think about where you want your guests to gather after dinner — whether in your living room, family room or rec room — and make sure the spaces encourage an easy transition.
Cabinets provide storage but also delineate spaces and create privacy in place of walls. The large center island helps define the kitchen from adjoining spaces and includes lots of well-organized drawers with dividers and racks on the back side. The built-in bench seen at the right side of this photo includes a handy shelf below for storage of cookbooks.
Mix up the lighting. Natural lighting is best, but it’s not always ample enough to effectively light a space as active as a game room. “Try to have at least two to three additional sources of light,” says Green. “Traditional pot lights, sconces and lamps work best.” Be sure all game tables and areas are appropriately lit with task lighting from above, so everything from the King of Spades to a cue ball can be properly seen.
