Create Storage with Style and Design!
When you think of storage, what comes to mind? Heavy trunks with brass clasps or plastic boxes, with hinged or clip on lids, maybe?
Whilst these storage solutions can have their place, quite often they are not the most stylish or versatile of solutions. But what is? How can you create storage solutions that are functional and stylish?
Know what you are storing… and where!
Quite often, when it comes to storing things, we are not always sure what we want as we are not sure what we have thus, we nip out and buy a box because you can stack one on top of the other, if nothing else.
If boxes are the perfect solution, look for robust cardboard ones, with label holder at the front and choose colours that either blend with your interior design, or stand out, whichever you prefer.
Look at the space that you have to use – and maximise it all!
Those awkward alcoves or quirky features that you love about your home can be useful storage spaces but you will probably need to build in to the space, rather than trying to get a piece of furniture to fit.
To maximise the space, make shelving as deep as you can and also as high as you can.
Many people don’t make as much use of the height of their rooms as they should, meaning that they miss out on important storage space.
However, one aspect of this is that you may be tempted to pile things up there but this is where you need to be super-organised. Use rattan baskets or pretty boxes to store you stuff in and label them clearly too, so that you can see what you have stored in them.
Things at height should really only be the things that you only need to occasionally reach and make sure you have thought about this important aspect – how you can retrieve or store things up there safely.
Intersperse stored things with ‘pretty things’
Just because you have thousands of CDs or a massive library of books to store doesn’t mean that it has to look like a blanket wall of cases and books. Intersperse your items with pretty things or ornaments so that your attention is attracted by something nice. This is also a great way of making sure that you ‘hide’ things or make them less obvious too.
Storage is not boring – or it shouldn’t be! Many people when creating and designing their bespoke storage solutions with us, love the idea of using lights in their storage display, making it into a feature. Why not try it?
Sometimes, you just don’t want to be sat looking at your stuff which is why sliding doors is a great way of adding style, colour and elegance to a room. With loads of finishes and colour options to choose from, you will be really stuck for choice…
