Entries in storage (6)
1. Think outside the box when it comes to settling into a small space. Start by asking what are the basics needed to keep you comfortable, functional, and safe—then wonder and research ways to make it work for you.
2. Keep it simple and edit to essentials.
3. When you have minimal floor space, go up! Loft a space if possible, stack hive or other storage units when not.
4. Let the light shine in for an airy, open, free mood—privacy considered, skip the curtains.
5. Choose furniture for maximum function in a minimum amount of space—the alpine bed with a nightstand/shelf integrated into the headboard is a perfect example.
6. When any storage is better than none, a narrow wall-mounted hyde storage unit in ‘dead’ space is sheer genius—bonus is that it also keeps counter-tops free of clutter.
7. Multi-use furniture, like the peekaboo console, can be used as a desk, an entryway landing pad, or a buffet when entertaining.
9. The torino grey side table not only fits into extra-small spaces, the storage drawer is a bonus!
10. Furniture on wheels makes it easier to rearrange small spaces for any event.
We love when our creative visual merchants get together for a store opening—you never know what they’ll dream up.
And many times, it’s simply a matter of seeing something from another perspective. Like a row of hive storage units behind the piazza sofa doing double duty as a storage unit and a convenient console—both are about the same height so it works perfectly!
