The dilemma: Your kids could really benefit from a quiet, productive space for doing homework, but you also want an inspiring craft space. Can't decide if you should devote your spare room to your kids or yourself? Consider a third option: combining the two. Since both are part-time activities, they can easily share a space with a little help from the pros. This advice can help you create a double-duty workspace that caters to both you and the kids.
Most interior hallways don't have windows, which means adequate artificial lighting is a necessity. Try adding hanging pendants instead of the standard surface-mounted lighting. The right pendant will light up your hallway while adding design flair, too.
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.
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!
