Make the most of storage space!

Storage is essential in every home, but we always seem to find ourselves falling short for space which is why it is important to learn how to work with the space we have. Adrian discusses some simple quick tips to help you utilise your space around your home:

The Living Room

The living room tends to be the messiest room of the house but that’s because it is the room that sees the most traffic. Make the most of your living room by investing in multi-functional furniture. For example; a coffee table that also includes draws. This will give you extra space to utilise but with the added benefit that it is hidden and won’t clutter your room.

 The Kitchen

Make your kitchen easy to cook in by maximising your space. By using vertical space in your kitchen, it enables to use all the space you have in the room, this will help by reducing clutter on the sides and help keep your kitchen looking neat and tidy!

The Bedroom

Maximise your under-bed space! Utilise the space you have by storing underneath, it’s one of the easiest ways to add a whole area of storage – no one must know as this can be incorporated in your bed design. Splash out on a wardrobe wall! Installing shallow wardrobes along a wall will help you to create a cosy feel whilst giving you a whole heap of added storage. It won’t feel as bulky and cluttered than if you were to put a wardrobe or cabinet there! A light colour will also make the room feel more open and less claustrophobic.

Space saving ideas for your Bathroom

It’s common for a lot of people to wish their bathroom was bigger and more often than not, it’s normally the smallest room in the house but it is one of the most functional alongside the kitchen. Bathrooms are used for multi-purpose – from getting ready quickly of a morning to unwinding and relaxing  in the evening. Achieving a space which allows you to achieve both can be a tricky task. We use a lot of products, and as families grow, the amount of bottles used can leave bathrooms feeling cluttered. If you’re looking for your bathroom to feel like a sanctuary for relaxation, here’s our top tips of how you make the most of your bathroom by optimising space:

Hanging Space behind the Door

Hanging your towels on the back of the bathroom door frees up some space and keeps them out of eyesight which can help when creating a spacious environment to relax. Invest in a good door towel rail so your wet towels dry.

Use Wall Boxes/Cabinets

Wall boxes will give you the same amount of storage space as traditional shelves but will help you to disguise the clutter whilst giving you a clean and modern look and feel. Bespoke cabinets can be made and fitted to give you the storage you need, and have it fit perfectly.

Built in Storage

Storage underneath sinks and baths make the most of wasted space underneath and will give you more storage – even in the smallest of bathrooms! You can even have custom-built storage underneath the sink and still have it floating which will leave your bathroom feeling stylish and not looking cluttered.

Medicine Cabinet

Cabinets are a popular way of hiding away all your items but can take up space. By fitting a bespoke mirrored medicine cabinet you’re able to have two in one – you’ll have the look and the storage!
