DECORATIVE STORAGE PIECES
Sometimes smaller spaces may necessitate storing items in view plain view so why not select a storage piece that compliments the rooms décor? Identify the hues in the room and then find a hook or shelf to match. Here, rolls of essential papers and wraps are stored in a decorative storage piece that accents the metals in the Kitchen.
A study or home offices may be difficult to create when space is tight but here some strategically placed bookshelves offers a practical and beautiful space. The stool tucks away under the work surface and the laptop can fold out of the way too.
Rather than stacking items directly on top of each other, subdivide open spaces for better organization.
Narrow or short shelves can give you extra surfaces to store items in easy reach. Plates and glasses that are used frequently do not necessary need to be kept behind cabinet doors.
Natural light helps make small rooms feel bigger, but windows also gobble up wall space and potential storage spots. To get the best of both worlds, consider a strategy used in this kitchen: a mid-height shelf for a few short bowls, and a hanging rack near the ceiling for essential pots and pans.
