  • Stylish storage solutions

    Oct 18, 2011

    With it becoming increasingly expensive and nigh on impossible to move, we’re all looking for ways to maximise the space we currently have.

    One of the best ways to make your rooms seem larger is to invest in practical storage solutions. From built in cupboards to shelving, useable storage is a must for the modern homeowner.

    However, storage needn’t be unsightly and there are some stylish and inventive storage solutions for every type of home.

    Give disused or vintage items a new lease of life by making them into stylish storage solutions. This ladder has been given a revamp and is now a practical but interesting shelving unit. A guaranteed talking point!

    There are also plenty of companies who are offering bespoke storage for awkward spaces or if you have specific storage requirements. This service is a great way to ensure you’re making the most out of the space you have.

    Decorative shelving is a wonderful way to display your favourite items and often acts as art work in its own right. We love the Baroque shelves from the Found Home Store and the seaside hut-shaped shelves from Cloudberry Living. There are numerous shelving and storage units available to suit every design scheme and budget.

    Wheeled units are a clever way to make your storage flexible. The wheeled furniture can be moved from room to room, depending on where the storage is needed. It is also a great way to move larger pieces of furniture to another room if you are entertaining, for example.
