Summer Space Savers

It’s Summer and time to declutter and create fresh, open living spaces

Unboxxed thought it an opportune time to showcase our absolute favourite storage and space solutions to inspire you to create a more harmonious home this festive season.  From creating the impression of more space through to clever choice of flooring to actually adding storage to unused spaces –  here’s how you can achieve a clutter free home!

CLEVER SHELVING – Shelves are always practical and they can transform empty walls into functional, decorative spaces.

BANISH WORKTOP CLUTTER – Toaster, kettles, coffee machines and cooking utensils all make for untidy surfaces.  Modern kitchen design accommodates for our desire to have clutter-free worktops by including large cupboards with a section of worktop inside.

 NEAT STUDY AREA – Scandinavian furniture is ideal for creating a clutter-free and simplistic look.  We love this elegant and funky table by Elijahleed.com.  Its neat design means it can fit into almost any space to provide a conservative, yet practical study space.

UNIFIED FLOORING –  is a great way to create a coherent look.  Certain materials such as stone, concrete and porcelain can even be continued outdoors.  We love this example by Loyn & Co Architects.

STAIR STORAGE – Under your stairs is generally a dormant, wasted space so utilise this by creating stair storage drawers – ideal for coats, schoolbags, scarves, hats and wellies.

CLUTTER-FREE BATHROOM – Keep your bathroom calm and clutter free by keeping essential towels only to hand.  Stockpile the rest in another room or airing cupboard handy to your bathroom. Store shampoo bottles, shower gels, toothpastes and accessories in accessible vanity units – out of sight and out of mind.
