Guesthouse, Pool House and Garage Apartments

March 25, 2015 l Topics:Blogs l By K&N Sales Staff

Garage apartments, pool houses and guest houses are typically small spaces that serve a function. Homeowners often overlook these spaces during renovation or purchase because they are not part of the main home. We have a few tips and tricks to turn your extra living space into a more prominent part of your home.


The Kitchen

kitchenKitchens in these extra spaces are typically small. Bosch has a variety of smaller appliances that will fit in congested spaces. Their 18" Special Application Bar Handle Dishwasher is the quietest in its class with nine possible rack positions and InfoLight displays on the floor so you know when it’s running. The small width of this dishwasher makes it easy to put under you counter.

  Smaller refrigerators are also a necessity in any home no matter the size. The GE 11.6 cu. ft. Top-Freezer Refrigerator is equipped with an ice maker, LED interior lighting, three adjustable spillproof glass fresh food shelves and three clear fixed door shelves which makes it perfect for storing food for guests in your extra space.


The Decor


If you are planning on renovating, we have our favorite trends for home interior in 2015:

  • Open Spaces: An open floor plan has long been popular, but it is perfect for your space. Removing the wall between the kitchen and living room will add an openness to your home.
  • Specialized Storage: Storage is not limited to extra space in your closets. There are great storage spaces that serve two functions. Our pick? Ottomans and benches that provide seating as well as open up to provide storage underneath are perfect for small spaces.
  • Coral Shades: These bright shades reflect optimism and add light to any space. While we suggest you refrain from painting every wall coral, an accent wall will be a nice touch to your home.

We have mentioned a few of our favorite small space trends and tips this month. Do you have any of your own that you wish to share?
