Creating storage is always a challenge: it shouldn’t spoil the interior while being functional and accommodating a lot of things. There are tons of solutions to try but if you don’t want to bother yourself with tricky ideas, make storage a part of your decor. How to do that? Here are some ideas to try.
Incorporate some storage into the kitchen backsplash design. How? Attach some railings and holders for pots, frying pans, spices, spoons, etc. Choose these railings and holders according to the kitchen design – brass, stainless steel, copper or something else that fits your color scheme and style, and they can be vintage or modern ones. One more bold idea is rocking a pegboard backsplash, which means that you can attach various shelves and holders wherever you want, and the whole backsplash becomes a functional storage piece.
Open layouts are a common thing today as they allow using every inch of space and create a spacious and airy feeling even if it’s not a large room. A nice idea to place storage here is to add a slight space divider with storage. A bookshelf, a large shelving unit or an etagere is right what you need in such a case. Choose its look and color according to your space decor and place it somewhere in between the zones. Such a space divider will subtly separate the spaces without making them look small, plus it won’t look bulky, which is essential if the space isn’t that large.
Reconsider open shelving! Open shelves are a great idea to show off your things on display and they don’t look bulky like closed cabinets, they live an airy feeling while accommodating all your things. This is a great idea for any space, they are timeless and elegant and will fit any room from a kitchen to a bedroom. Floating shelves make your space look more modern, and if you want an accent, go for a live edge on them. As for kitchens, try to match the shelves and the countertops for a more chic look. You can also highlight the shelves with some touches like metal tubing or framing on the sides to make them more decorative.
