Use closed storage to your advantage Too much clutter in the living room can make it hard for us to relax. So, on an open bookshelf, try mixing in shelf inserts and boxes to hide away small or messy things that you need but don’t want to see.
Get creative with storage for small spaces Shrinking homes with little dedicated storage mean we need to keep adapting our storage solutions. Every nook is an opportunity! Here, wall-mounted shelving, a trolley on wheels and different-sized baskets make the most of an awkward space.
Embrace open storage Many of us would benefit from homes that are clutter-free but filled with things we love. Resist the temptation to hide everything in boxes – organised open storage can make it easier to find what we love and use often.
Streamline your hallway It takes most of us well over an hour to leave the home after waking up. A handy hallway shelf (here the brackets have been painted white and hooks have been added underneath) might just make getting out the door a bit easier. Coat, bag, scarf? Check.
Hang your outfits Did you know that 58% of Shanghainese pick out clothes for the following morning the evening before? An open hanging rail may be just the thing you need to make your morning dressing routine run more smoothly.
