There are several different options when it comes to storing your possessions in a stylish manner, from free-standing units to custom built real wood furniture that will blend in with your other items. Take time to consider your requirements and then perhaps have a serious de-clutter before putting your favourite items on display. So what options are there that can make a difference to your home? We asked Chelmsford based Priest Brothers.
If you have items that you are proud of and want to display for everyone to admire, take a look at the idea of using several wooden bookcases together to create one larger unit. Alternatively you could go for storage cubes instead that are available in a range of sizes and a choice of finishes and different woods to compliment your existing decor. Using several different sizes together, you can create a look at is unique to your home. Of course if there is nothing out there that fits your particular space, there are companies that are more than happy to manufacture a bespoke item to suite. For a truly stunning look why not frame a large window with made to measure units or storage cubes adding a custom made desk to make the most of the view outside? Oak or walnut would make a good choice.
If you don’t need to push your settee back against the wall, why not make the most of the space by using a storage unit, shelves or bookcase to display your favourite items. Use the upper shelves for the things you are proud of and the lower shelves to store things out of view that are maybe not so pleasing.
Of course if floor space is in short supply, you could always add a unit or two to a wall which will not eat into your existing small space.
