10 errors to avoid when designing your sustainable home plan layout: part 6


First-time modern home builders soon realize that, while their spaces look great, they have nowhere to put stuff.

Apart from basic usage areas like kitchen, sitting area, office, every house needs those additional spaces specifically purposed for storage. Built-in storage is also a great way to avoid hallways. Any mismatch in the way walls meet up can become the perfect storage room. But watch out, built-in storage becomes a fixed feature of the room: try to keep your layout flexible enough that you can still use the room if its function changes.
