Handy soap niches add storage space inside the luxe walk-in shower. “It was a challenge because there is the guest bathroom on the other side of the wall,” says build manager Dan Faires. “Originally the architect drew much larger niches there, but we reconfigured the niches so we could still have storage and also accommodate the medicine cabinet in the guest bathroom.”
In addition to the cabinets and drawers in the U-shaped double vanity, the master bathroom also offers vertical storage above the vanity with a tall column upper cabinet for easy access to items like extra rolls of toilet tissue and personal care products.
With an expansive wall of cabinets and an oversized island, this enviable kitchen offers plenty of storage space. A clever built-in bookcase caps the wall of cabinets, creating a charming spot to display and store cookbooks.
Oversized drawers and a clothing rack line the wall and offer convenient storage space in this transitional double-duty game and utility room. A Ping-Pong table sits nearby, with other assorted sport and recreational equipment within easy reach.
Turn the area below an elevated deck into storage space for outdoor equipment and garden supplies like McLean, Virginia's Land Art Design did for a client. The wide doorway gives easy access when it's time to fetch a rake or trowel, and a padlock keeps everything secure.
