Minimalistic Design Transformations to Inspire Zen Living
Start To Finish Construction has been creating harmonious Zen inspired spaces throughout the Okanagan Valley in both residential and commercial spaces. In an era where many associate “stuff” with “success,” more people are feeling bogged down and wondering why. It is imperative to create spaces that offer functional, organized design in order to be able to allow your eyes to find a calm, peaceful vibe. When clutter abounds and there is loads of everything everywhere, it often makes homeowners and clients alike feel chaotic and uncomfortable. As we head into the colder seasons, what better time than now to transform your indoor spaces to reflect the Zen vibe you have been dreaming about! Start To Finish Construction in Kelowna has a multitude of excellent concepts you can incorporate into your new construction or redesign.
Clutter Free Living
One of the main hallmarks of Zen living is that everything has a place. Streamlined efficiency marries contemporary design. Think linear lines and clean finishes. Essentially, when you walk into a room, you are hoping to inspire a refreshing deep breath and not a wild-eyed sigh. Piles of mail, kids’ toys, copious household keys and random household items are not on display for the world to see. There are no messy books, dead flies on the window ledges or tripping layers of shoes scattered in the entryway. It is a great idea to take a notepad, walk from room to room in your home or office, and take note of the “scary” places that resemble moving day chaos and exposed junk drawers. While it can be overwhelming to tackle all in one weekend, you will have much better results if you create an action plan. Where can these items find an organized, permanent home? What is the state of your closets? Your bathroom storage? How is your storage room or garage looking these days? Be patient as you go into this process of junking, sorting and donating and promise yourself to keep an open mind.
Creative Storage Solutions
Enjoy the possibilities that creative storage solutions can bring to every room. We can customize bookshelves, recessed drywall alcoves, stairway storage and seating solutions that all offer compartments that you will love. Perhaps, a spice kitchen or pantry will help. Maybe a completely renovated kitchen, bedrooms or home office can address long-term storage woes. The Start To Finish Construction design team is happy to listen to your main concerns and come up with a variety of storage options to consider. Every space is unique and our team is up for the challenge!
Bright and Neutral Palettes
A huge part of your renovation and design project will be the colours and tones you rely on to create your Zen oasis. Whites, silvers and neutral tones provide a flexible background that often makes a space look bigger. Vaulted ceilings are another practical consideration when we are working with new construction or renovations. Even painting the ceilings, a brighter shade can completely enhance the overall vibe. This enables clients to choose the contrasting colours they wish to inject in terms of accent items.
Popular aspects of Zen design include interior and exterior water features that offer a soothing respite from traffic and external noise. Bamboo plants are a great way to add some green, linear lines if you adore houseplants. Lastly, be sure that the accessories you choose have a story and fit your space. This will help you address clutter concerns from restarting by ensuring that only pieces exuding positive energy are chosen to complete your harmonious new style.
