Oh, how we love a storage solution! Especially when it’s one of yours.
A reader shares clever storage solutions.
Stephanie’s small but very organised laundry has loads of storage along with clever style elements that keep it streamlined and clutter-free. To make the most of a small space, Stephanie chose white for the walls, cupboards, shelves and benchtops and “injected some zest and colour” with splashes of yellow.
Open shelves show off “pretty” linen and towels. Features like the white tiles, goose-necked tap and stainless steel square sink add a modern yet timeless quality.
A stylish wicker basket, with its strip of bright sunny yellow, keeps laundry essentials such as detergents and fabric softeners easily accessible but out of sight.
“In a functional place such as a laundry, I think greenery is important to bring some life into the space,” says Stephanie. An array of pots provide colour and texture.
Sliding doors hide the combined washer/dryer on one side and more storage on the other. The bench was custom-built so it would house any standard size machine.
This utility room was built against the back wall of the renovated bathroom. “I love that we packed so much storage into such a small space.”
