Interior Design 201: Storage Secrets

A happy Friday, everyone! It’s the end of the week again before we know it! And to think that it will be November already in just a few more days! It’s really crazy how time seems to be flying faster than ever. Next thing we know it’s already Christmas, and then it’s the New Year! Oh boy…

Anyway, recently I just finished a series of posts on home design basics, so from this week onwards I’ll be getting a little more advanced/specific with some key aspects of interior decor that shouldn’t be overlooked. Today I’d like to talk about storage.

With designers getting more creative and efficient, there are now numerous ways in allotting storage space for your home without actually having to create a separate room for it. Doors and windows are a good example. Instead of it being just a flat, useless surface, you could use that narrow space in the wall next to the hinges for books, trinkets, and other small decor. The same can go for nooks and windowsills as well.

It’s also become a familiar concept nowadays to use wall space without it necessarily touching the floor. Just like in the creatively placed cabinet turned workstation above, you can utilize the vacant space at the bottom for other items.

For multi-level homes, also consider using that space under the stairs. Even a small desk can make a big difference and help in organizing your things a little bit more.

Nooks and crannies are often overlooked, but with the rise of small living due to rapid urbanization in bigger cities, people have become increasingly adaptive and creative in utilizing what limited space they have. Of course, this mindset can still prove very useful even in the suburban family home, don’t you think?
