4 Ways You Can Customize Your Cabin Space
If you’re looking to build a cabin, it can be difficult to find a floor plan that meets all of your needs. At the same time, using a cabin floor plan as a base is usually much easier than creating one from scratch. Since customizing an existing floor plan is often the best option, here are some ways you can customize your cabin to help your perfect vision come to life.
Knock Down the Walls
One of the best ways to add versatility and space to a cabin is by opening up the floor plan. Knocking down any walls between the main living, dining and kitchen areas connects the rooms to provide the illusion of much more space. Opening up a floor plan brings the entire main area of your cabin together and offers more options for finishing out the interior of the cabin shell. Open floor plans often allow more kitchen space as well, which is a must for many families.
Let the Natural Light In
Some cabin floor plans come with only a few windows, which can make the space feel smaller and prevent natural lighting. Not to mention it blocks out the beautiful view! Adding as many windows as you can is a great idea for living areas and master bedrooms. Whether you choose a sunroom feel or add a cozy bay window seat, let as much natural light as possible into your cabin. The end result will be a brighter space that feels bigger than it is.
Build Extra Rooms
It can be easy to feel constrained to the stock floor plan, even if you’re customizing it. However, customization includes adding on extra rooms if need be. Some floor plans lack the storage and utility space you may require for your cabin, and adding extra space is the best way to meet those needs.
Some homeowners may add as little as an extra bedroom or bathroom or as much as a whole lower or upper level. Lofts are a great way to gain extra sleeping or working space, and they’re a popular feature in many custom cabins.
Add a Fireplace
Not every customization has to be as big as adding rooms or knocking down walls. Adding a fireplace to your cabin design is one of the best ways to make your cabin’s living area feel cozy and entertaining. It creates a gathering area when in use and makes a perfect addition to many cabins.
