    Hi Gillian

    Thanks for your kind words. the living space in this image is about 4.9m long (from glass doors to edge of stair just off to the left of the image) and it's about 5.2m wide overall. The joinery is only about 300mm deep. It's design is to house a few services behind the bottom doors. Things like the hydronic heating head unit. In spaces like this you need to use every last millimetre of space. Let me know if I can be of any further assistance in your project. I'm more than happy to discuss further. Cheers

    Michael Montgomery

4. Declutter the entire homeAll three experts interviewed for this story were unanimous regarding the importance of decluttering. “As much as it’s your home, you’ve got to take all the personal stuff out to make it look more appealing and spacious,” Sims says. Think minimal: clear crowded shelving units, keeping only a few key pieces on display. Magazines, papers, toys, phone-charging cables – move them along. You’ll be amazed at how clearing all the horizontal surfaces can transform the look of a room. Tip: The Marie Kondo method sounds brutal, but could be a great way to declutter when preparing to sell. The idea is to keep only items that ‘spark joy’. This means you’ll throw away an awful lot of stuff, and (theoretically) you’ll be left with only your most beautiful, open-home-worthy pieces. Or, you could just shift all non-essential bits and pieces into storage while your home is on the market. The art of decluttering, Japanese style
