Whether you’ve been following our Design Deep Dive series or visiting for the first time, Trilogy is excited to present our final life hacks tip. Since we started our business in 1967, we’ve collected design ideas to help make homes more functional. Our top suggestions range from creative kitchen layout tweaks to storage solutions. We love passing these on to our clients! 

Did you know almost 40% of Americans use a self-storage facility to store their possessions?

Whether it’s for furniture or appliances, more and more people are turning to self-storage. This trend is rising in popularity and is an indication many people don’t have enough storage space in their homes. 

Wishing you had more room for your stuff?

Trilogy can help you maximize the space in your home to include more storage ideas. For example, one of our top suggestions is to utilize the space underneath staircases for storage. Shelving, cabinets, and other design elements can be included to organize and store items. And If you don’t have a staircase, Trilogy can incorporate built-in cabinets and other smart storage solutions into your home design. 

If you think you need more storage solutions, contact Trilogy today. We can sit down with you to create an efficient home which works for your life. Find peace of mind in design with Trilogy! 

Welcome to Trilogy’s next Design Deep Dive! If you’re new to this series, here’s the lowdown. We’re sharing some of the most efficient life hacks for home design which we’ve gleaned during our 50+ years of experience in the building industry. Today’s focus is near and dear to our hearts, since it involves designing for clients who are looking at aging in place. 

What is aging in place? 

For those unfamiliar with the concept, “aging in place” means tailoring a home design to the needs of senior citizens, both present and future. With some planning, it’s possible to create a safe, functional living space for adults of all ages. These design tweaks allow the occupants to build now and remain in their home well into their golden years. 

A great aging-in-place life hack is a shower seat. 

Providing a spot to sit in the shower can be extremely helpful for those with mobility issues who can’t stand for a long period of time. It offers a safe spot to help seniors avoid falls and have a rest when needed. And when combined with a walk-in (or roll-in) shower design, and grab bars, it conforms with some of the top aging in place bathroom design recommendations. 

With over five decades of experience, Trilogy specializes in aging in place home design. If you are interested in this, contact us today to find out how to make your future home one to grow old in. 

When it comes to building a higher value, “life hacks” are an easy way to increase the quality of your build and the way you live your life in your new home. Simply put, these are design suggestions created to make your everyday life easier. From storage solutions to efficient design, there are so many ways to make your new home outstanding. Join us on a Design Deep Dive to explore some of the top tips and tricks to take homes from being functional to fabulous. 

When it comes to usage, it’s no surprise the kitchen is the most important room in the house.

It does double-duty as a workspace to craft meals and a gathering place for friends and family. As a social and culinary hub, it needs to be laid out well and look good, too. 

And one of the biggest enemies of efficiency is counter clutter. 

You probably know what we’re talking about: how toaster ovens, coffee machines, and other appliances come home to roost on the countertops for good, taking up valuable real estate which could be used for meal prep. Not only do they eat up space, some assortments can look like a garage sale, ruining the look of a carefully planned kitchen design. 

Enter the Appliance Cabinet. 

This life hack hides unsightly and bulky appliances like Kitchen-Aid mixers and more in their own dedicated cabinet. Don’t want to haul them in and out? They can rest on a moveable shelf which ascends and descends as needed. It will keep them clean and out of sight, allowing your kitchen design to take center stage and shine. These “appliance garages” are perfect for seniors, too, since it eliminates the need for stooping or lifting. Whether stored in a cabinet or combined with the moveable shelf, it’s a great design solution for those wanting to “age in place” in their home.
