“ Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful ” – William Morris.
Decluttering is often one of the most popular resolutions that people make at the start of a new year or the beginning of a new season, and as we approach spring it’s a better time than any to commit some time to harmonising your home. Not only will it put your home in order, thoroughly organising your interior design will make you feel re-energised and ready to take on whatever 2021 has in store.
Eliminating the endless list of things you need to sort out at home will positively impact upon your wellbeing. Connected health benefits can include:
Whether it’s a bedroom, bathroom or family entertaining space, transform your home into an organised haven of calm with some of these highly functional yet elegant storage solutions from our ‘Clever storage’ Pinterest board.
Floor-to-ceiling shelving or joinery is an obvious choice for smart storage however using accent lighting to illuminate rows of books, albums or personal objects in the alcoves can add warmth and character to the room.
Plenty of cupboard storage is ideal for storing board games, games consoles, magazines and other personal items.
Add a fun element to the design of your child’s bedroom by using geometric shelving or use a combination of open and closed pigeon-hole storage boxes, which can be painted in pastel shades or bright colours.
For the dressing area of our Richmond residential project, we took advantage of the exceptional height of the room to obtain maximum storage and fitted the joinery into the apex of the ceiling.
Consider smart design that also maximises every inch of space. The desk in our Richmond residential project can be discreetly hidden from view by a timber sliding pocket door, so there’s no need to keep the work surface clutter-free at all times.
For our Fitzrovia pied-à-terre project, we designed a bespoke ottoman to incorporate extra poufs, which can be brought out as required, allowing the open-plan living area to be kept organised and free of clutter during and after entertaining.
We hope you’ve gained some valuable insight to begin your own smart storage renovation project. Contact us today to discuss the vision of your desired home.
