When you are building a new home or renovating a home there are few places which look not so important and interior designers tend to leave those places. The places which are not so prominent in the house might take less attention or may be because of the tight  budget constraints these spaces are considered under afterthoughts. This blog brings to you the 5 most common spots that you may miss out when designing your house.

Laundry room

When remodelling house, Laundry rooms or dry balconies are among one of the most commonly ignored spaces.

Laundry room does not require a lot of space, the main focus should be given on creating an efficient space. There has to be a designated space  for a washing machine, a small sink and a cabinet.


The space below the staircase can be used in many effective ways. It is the perfect spot to make space for extra storage of your footware, can be turned into a well-organized pantry, if you are tight on kitchen space, you can install large drawers for extra ration storage or can be assigned to bookshelves, if planned thoughtfully.

Bedroom lounge areas

While planning a bedroom we mainly focus on bedside of the room and ignore the remaining space. We need to have some space for reading, or for our work as we cannot spend a whole day sitting on the bed. Make your cozy spot, place a lounge chair with an ottoman, optional, and pair it with a nice sleek bookshelf. Every bedroom is different if you don’t have a corner to commit, use the end of your bed for this space.
