How to do open storage in your home >>
- Delivery & Returns
Does the minimalist trend of hiding your belongings behind closed doors feel impersonal to you? Are you proud of the pretty things you have collected over the years? Well, then open storage solutions are definitely for you. Open storage will give your home that unique touch and add bags of character. Here are our tips and ideas on how to make it work in your home.
Embrace open ladder shelving
This extremely versatile open storage solution is perfect for any room. Lining two, three or more of these metal and oak leaning shelves adds gravitas and can really energise a simply decorated room. Display your best crockery pieces in a dining room, liven up the display with eye-catching trinkets you may have collected on your travels. Group similar colours for a harmonising effect or scatter pops of different colours for a dramatic effect. In a kitchen-diner space, add potted plants or living herbs to create a homely atmosphere.
Create an intellectual heaven
Open shelving is perfect for bedrooms and office spaces. You don’t need a library room; you can create a relaxed book heaven in your lounge with a pair of modular open shelving units and a bean bag. Arrange the books in interesting patterns rather than traditional vertical positions. Wrapping all books in the same colour will give your open shelving a minimalist twist and make it look tidy, but you can add an interesting wall decoration and lighting to liven it up.
