Storage Solutions: Organizing with Style

    (Provided by ABC Glass & Mirror, Inc. - Tuesday, June 21, 2016)

Storage SolutionsStorage solutions are a key part of making a house a lovely and functional home. They have an integral part to play in minimizing clutter, keeping your belongings accessible, and making it easy to find what you need.

However, the best storage solutions do something else; they add style and charm to your living space. Here are three ideas for simultaneously addressing your need for more storage and your wish for aesthetically pleasing space.

1. Open Shelving
Adding open shelving to a room is a popular storage solution in 2016.
The shelves themselves can give character to the space – as in the case of clear or frosted glass shelves – and they provide a stage on which to both store and display cherished items. If you have collectibles boxed up in your attic, attractive dishware stashed in cupboards, or hand-made items hidden away in closets, consider making the move to open shelving that keeps your items in sight and accessible.

2. Up-cycled Cabinets
This next item on our list of storage solutions will be a favorite among homeowners who love to hunt for great “finds” at flea markets, thrift stores, and yard sales. It’s also appealing for the environmentally conscious since it entails improving and reusing existing pieces instead of buying brand new ones.

Used cabinets such as sideboards, hutches, dressers, and wardrobes can provide extra storage for virtually any room in your home, and with a little TLC they can also become focal points in your décor.

Ideas include –
   •    Replacing damaged or dated door fronts with cabinet glass.
   •    Creating a distressed look and applying an antique-style finish.
   •    Sanding the piece and painting it a trendy hue.
   •    Switching to unique knobs and hinges that give the cabinet character and charm.

3. Cubbies
Don’t think cubbies are just for kindergarten classrooms! They can also provide cute storage solutions for children’s bedrooms, entryways, mudrooms, laundry rooms, homeschooling rooms, and more.

Well-made cubbies with a nice paint or stain finish add clean lines and visual interest to the space. They are also highly functional as storage units, allowing you to organize items by owner, purpose, season, etc, while keeping everything handy and visible.
