1. Install his-and-hers workstations

Whether the both of you are working from home or just need an office space for occasional use, having a loved one at your side makes any difficult task seem like a breeze. Plus, it never hurts to keep things organised with separate work areas.

2. Keep things organised with a shared wardrobe

Walk-in wardrobes are nothing new, but there are always ways to make them more useful. In the case of this well-thought-out bedroom, a front-facing shelf forms part of the walk-in’s entrance for space maximisation. Meanwhile, the wardrobe’s glass sliding door doubles as a see-through shelf barrier.

3. Have a bedroom ‘island’

No, islands aren’t just for kitchens. These build-ins can be adapted for bedroom use – both as a convenient surface and as a see-through display case to keep each other’s belongings organised and in full view.

4. Create a bathroom for two

Seeing a partner going about their private business may be anathema to some, but if you’re comfortable around each other, consider including a his-and-hers vanity in your renovation plans; the pros will outweigh the cons – if they exist – because having two sinks is going to be a blessing when the (inevitable) morning rush hits.

5. Build a practical (and stylish) kitchen

There’s a reason why they say the best way to anyone’s heart is through their stomach: Aside from sharing a delicious meal, preparing one together is another way of building a closer relationship. And for that, a practical kitchen is going to prove helpful.

If you’re thinking of upgrading your kitchen, be sure to include useful features such as overhead shelves (that’ll keep your favourite spices on hand) and an efficient hood (so that you won’t have to end off a romantic dinner with an icky cleaning session).

6. Include a side-by-side breakfast counter

What better way is there to have the most important meal of the day than enjoying it with the most important person in your life?

Side-by-side counter seats are the home inclusion that’ll make your morning breakfasts more romantic. Plus, they can be a replacement for a dedicated dining area, especially if you need the space for something else.

7. Add warm bedside lights

With ceiling lights installed in your bedroom, you may be wondering about going through the trouble of adding built-in bed lamps (especially when they seem to be little more than fancy accessories). But the truth is, they can be pretty useful in situations when you need a night light, minus the overhead glare.

8. Save some space for a cosy corner
