No stor­age? No prob­lem

These so­lu­tions make putting things away easy

I F YOU have a room with ab­so­lutely no wardrobes or stor­age – don’t worry! It’s a blank can­vas for some easy do-it-your­self op­tions. Take a master bed­room that is com­pletely de­void of stor­age. Not so easy to live with, but def­i­nitely easy to fix. Start with a flat-pack wardrobe that can be per­son­alised to in­clude the right com­bi­na­tion of hang­ing space, draw­ers, or shelves.

You can choose your doors as well – from ei­ther white, mir­rored, or a com­bi­na­tion of both.

The great thing about flat-pack is it’s de­signed to be put to­gether your­self, but you’ll need a few helpers to put it in place.

If you have the space, think about adding some open shelv­ing. This is a way to mod­ernise your stor­age, giv­ing it an ex­posed look in line with a New York loft style.

You can mix and match shelv­ing sizes, or add hang­ing rods to suit your wall space and stor­age needs.

These stor­age sys­tems are es­pe­cially good for smaller rooms be­cause they give the im­pres­sion of a larger space, by not tak­ing up room with a bulky wardrobe. Stor­age cubes hold just about any­thing. And they’re ver­sa­tile so they work in an of­fice, rum­pus, lounge or even a bed­room. And for some­thing dif­fer­ent, you can turn it into a bed­head.

Ex­posed shelv­ing gives the il­lu­sion of space to smaller rooms, and solves stor­age is­sues. PHOTO: IS­TOCK
