Plan For Practicality

Think creatively to make every inch count.

“Country retreats are wonderful places to entertain friends and family," says designer Grace Castaneda. "When you’re planning your home, think about how to get the most out of the space, especially when it comes to sleeping capacity. Eliminate closets to gain more space, and opt for hooks, shelves or dressers. Building in beds and shelves can also achieve incredible efficiencies when space is limited.”
