6 Clever Space-Saving Solutions for Your Home

Our remodeling team at HighCraft is dedicated to helping each homeowner make the most of their living space. When it comes to smaller homes, we know maximizing that space is even more crucial – and it can also be a challenge. Luckily, we love a good challenge!

Here are SIX of our favorite space-saving solutions from HighCraft remodels across Northern Colorado.

You can customize sliding doors through color, design, materials and hardware, adding character to any space, large or small.

3. DOUBLE-DUTY ROOM DIVIDERS

Room dividers are a great way to define separate living spaces and add interest without making a small space feel cramped, dark and closed in.

HighCraft designed a custom room divider (above) that pulls TRIPLE duty to save space in this Fort Collins studio-sized guest house. The slim divider defines the living and bedroom spaces, provides valuable storage, and includes a swivel-mounted television that can be viewed from either room.

4. SMART STAIRS

Custom Storage Build Under custom Stairs
HighCraft often relocates awkward stairs that take up valuable space in older homes, and our licensed architects can design creative new stairway solutions to access the second floor. We designed this half-landing staircase (above) against an outer wall to maximize space on the main floor of this Old Town Fort Collins renovation. Custom open shelving creates added storage under the stairs and keeps craft materials accessible and contained.

5. UNDER EAVES BATHROOM
