Well-planned storage isn't just about everyday organization (though that's crucial) but also takes into account the space needed for rarely-used items like holiday decorations. These homes feature bonus rooms, attics, and extra storage in the garage.

Full of modern amenities, this stone-accented home is a great choice for a family. An island with a snack bar adds useful counter space in the kitchen. Owners can head to the great room and relax by the fireplace, or find quiet in the den (this can become a dining room instead, if desired). The first-floor master suite boasts a large shower and corner tub. Upstairs, three more bedrooms access the vast unfinished bonus space. See more images, information, and the floor plans.

Tons of Storage on the Lower Level

This striking Craftsman home offers up a truly impressive amount of storage space and other useful amenities, including workshops on both levels (main and lower). A game room, guest suite, wet bar, and more storage add fun and functionality to the finished walkout basement. On the main level, the master suite surrounds owners with luxury, including a deluxe bathroom, walk-in closet, and sliding doors to the deck. The second bedroom sits close enough to the den to use it as a semi-private living space if desired (perhaps for an elderly parent). The rear deck provides indoor/outdoor living to the great room and dining area. See more images, information, and the floor plans.

Here's an elegant blend of traditional styling and modern amenities. Families will love to gather around the kitchen island, which flows into the family room, the breakfast nook, and the vaulted screened porch beyond. The master suite offers the ease of first-floor living, but with plenty of privacy thanks to a foyer that buffers the bedroom from view of public spaces. The office on this level could easily become a guest room. Upstairs, three spacious bedrooms each feature a private bath and walk-in closet. A study loft and optional bonus area add more room for work and fun. See more images, information, and the floor plans

Bonus Room Upstairs

This attractive Craftsman design nicely fits four bedrooms into one story, with a flex space adding even more possibilities. A coffered ceiling draws eyes up in the great room, while the kitchen's snack bar offers a place for casual meals. In the master suite, owners will appreciate double vanities and walk-in closets, plus a jet tub and separate shower. Extra storage in the garage will come in handy, with a large unfinished bonus room upstairs providing even more space. See more images, information, and the floor plans.
