Low cabinets make your room look more spacious and less 'full’. Same as cabinets floating above the floor, it gives optical space.

      Multifunctional wall

      Whether you have a teenager in the house or a preschooler, they are somehow…euhhh, less tidy in their cleaning behavior. Your dining table is full of schoolbooks. At night you scream when stepping on a sharp toy, and on weekends your living room looks like an exploded nursery and playroom. Where do you leave everything? A cupboard wall is a great solution in a spacious living room. Besides the fact that you can also store a lot, you also have the possibility for a small desk, your television and wall shelves for decoration. You may want administration, school supplies and remote controls behind doors, personal objects or photo frames you want to show. Dare to play!

        Show it off

        Are you in need of more storage but don’t want a full storage wall? Combining open and closed doors or cubes are a playful and personal solution. The space between the cubes can be used either for storage or to display things you like. Give it a personal touch!

          Out of sight

          For more serenity in your living room it’s smart to keep some belongings more out of sight but still easy to grab. A nice hidden spot is behind or underneath your sofa. Place a shelf of 10 cm below the edge of the backrest between your sofa and the wall. In this way you create extra space for practical, fun or beautiful things such as games, books, candles, plants and your favorite photos. Other items such as books, magazines or your cozy plaid you place in bins or drawers underneath your sofa. Easy does it!
