Attractive Storage Solutions for Your Home

July 20th, 2012 Bed and Bath

Let's face it - finding enough room in your home to contain the possessions you've accumulated over a lifetime can be a challenge. Even the most organized housekeepers can struggle balancing the functional and aesthetic qualities of a house that's overflowing with books, DVDs, kitchenware, children's toys, electronics, décor accessories and clothing among other things. However, with the right design strategies, you can create storage solutions that not only house your piles of stuff, but put them on display as functional décor. Here are some tips to get started.

Kitchen pot rack As some of the largest and most frequently used pieces of equipment in any kitchen, your pots and pans can present a unique challenge in terms of storage. With limited cabinet space, where can you find room for all your most important kitchenware? A kitchen rack offers a solution that is both attractive and handy. By hanging your pots and pans at eye level, you not only make them easily accessible, but they also become part of the overall aesthetic of your kitchen.

Bedroom end trunk As the hub of your life, it should come as no surprise that your bedroom can accumulate a lot of stuff. Between extra blankets, sheets, pillows, clothing, shoes and jewelry, the average bedroom is often overflowing. If you closet and dressers aren't enough, consider placing a trunk at the end of your bed for added storage. This will extend the length of you bed while also providing a surface to drape blankets or sheets for a functional appeal.

Wall cabinets In your living room, putting pieces of your life on display will help keep things tidy while also rounding out the room's overall aesthetic. Floating wall cabinets can provide a unique medium to store items like books, movies and general décor accents. You'll also save valuable floor space that would have been taken up by a larger, freestanding unit.
