What Do Women Really Want?

Women know this and I know this as a Seattle interior designer. Women are the primary decision-makers in most home decisions. And when it comes to the layout and emphasis of the home’s features, four areas emerge… Where are you in this mix? Or do multiple features attract you?

Entertaining

Homes with options for entertaining around food are important

Kitchens are the main attraction

Adaptable Living Spaces

Blurring the division between rooms in your home is a leading trend

Bridging Two Rooms

De-Stress and Relax

Seattle designer says bedrooms should rejuvenate

Relax and rejuvenate in a peaceful setting

Storage Solutions

Seattle luxury designer says organized closets are a must

Great custom closets are a sweet spot

Here are some observations and comments from my clients to keep in mind:

  • Don’t place the laundry room near the garage entrance. Reminders of work to do and clutter are better out of sight.  And laundry rooms near the bedrooms makes better sense.
  • Instead of a ‘mudroom/laundry’ area consider a well-organized area for shoes, backpacks, mail, keys, etc. that transitions between garage and kitchen and family room.
  • Open kitchens for entertaining need to be clutter-contained.  So pantries are re-emerging that blend pantry with butler’s rooms. Think sink, small appliances, extra dishwasher (drawer?). More ideas for entertaining.
