Don’t add handles


If you’re going for an ultra-clean, seamless look, then don’t install pulls or handles on your cabinets. How will you open it? Integrated handles (cut behind the cabinet doors by the cabinet-maker or sash factory), magnetic latches, or push latches all do the trick.

If you’re a couple living together and all your belongings won’t fit in one space, then why not splurge on his-and-hers walk-in-closets?

Leslie has her own elegant space (above) with mirrored closet doors, feminine furniture, and a chandelier.

Meanwhile, husband Jedd escapes to his rustic “man-cave,” (above) with storage cubbies for his equipment for diving, fencing, badminton, biking, and more. “Having everything out in the open…makes it so much easier to pack for our outdoor activities,” he says.
