Summer has finally arrived in Wisconsin and that means it’s time to make the most of our outdoor living spaces. A recent Yale University study identified a widening disconnect between people and nature, even though research has repeatedly shown that time spent outdoors is good for our physical and mental health (a few highlights are covered in this article from Business Insider).
When we think of home storage and organization, we often think first of our indoor spaces, especially the kitchen & bath, laundry room, home office, closets and entertainment systems. This summer, Cabinet City would love to help you bring beautiful and functional home organization elements to help you get outside and make the most your outdoor spaces.
The possibilities are endless, but here are a few ideas to get started:
• Have you been dreaming of an outdoor kitchen? Even in small spaces the right cabinets and design elements can make this dream a reality. If a full cooking space isn’t in the cards, a small bar and serving area make entertaining a breeze.
• Make the most of your transitional spaces. From full mudrooms to locker and entryway systems, we can help keep your high traffic areas free of clutter for better flow between indoors and out.
• Give your porch purpose. If you have a three- or four-season porch, what do you most use it for? If it’s for entertaining, does it have the right service features? If it is more of a reading nook, bookshelves might be a must. For avid gardeners, porches can be a perfect place for potting with the right cabinets and workbench.
• As we wrote about last month, the garage tends to be the largest room of the house when it comes to square footage, but it is often underutilized. From custom bike racks to full tool storage systems, we can help transform your garage into a fully functional and organized space.
We’d love to help you improve and make the most of your outdoor living spaces this summer. Once you’ve got your spaces set up, you can have infinite amounts of fun decorating and accessorizing.
