Delightful Design: Creative Storage Solutions.


Every homeowner knows that regardless of how much storage space your home has, it never seems to be enough. When the cupboards are at max capacity, and every closet is accounted for it’s time to get innovative with how you store your items – and sometimes that means putting it all out on display. In this edition of Delightful Design we’re taking a look at creative storage solutions for the rooms in your home that need it the most.
For the Kitchen

Aside from adding a unique and rustic element to your kitchen, a set of painted shutters can be utilized to hang anything from cooking utensils, to dish towels, and spices.

Put your Food to Work

Instead of taking up space on the counter or in the pantry, try showcasing your groceries. Use an assortment of jars to store dry pasta and grains, or gather all your countertop fruits and veggies into a large bowl to create a colourful centerpiece.
For the Bathroom

Choose Purposeful Décor

Bathrooms are already the smallest rooms of a home – save yourself floor and counter space by taking full advantage of the walls. Hang tasteful baskets to store toiletries, or install a series of racks to store towels.
For the Bedrooms
