Treasure every corner: Transforming small spaces

 

Laundry Refresh

Every home has a different tale to tell, but it's typically the small details that set them apart. It's time to create new space and give life to these hidden nooks, which are often dismissed as awkward or overly cramped. From utility room ideas to ingenious hallway storage, here we reveal how to add function and beauty to these overlooked spaces. Once a cubby for odd socks and dirty mops, an elegant yet functional utility room or cabinet can be created with a little organisation. Choose thin cabinetry with a minimal footprint for utility room storage so you can move about freely. Tallboys and single larders offer a compact combination of drawers and shelves. This way, linens or tea towels can be stored directly from the dryer and away from the kitchen. Reserving the centre of the home exclusively for entertaining family and friends. Woven laundry baskets add depth and warmth to the functional purpose of the space. Hooks, on the other hand, are a lightweight alternative to utility room shelving, making use of wall space without taking over. Once a cubby for odd socks and dirty mops, an elegant yet functional utility room or cabinet can be created with a little organisation.

Reading Retreats

Allow your living room's cosier corners to thrive as cushioned retreats for hunkering down. Take the time to pick an armchair and footstool in a fabric that compliments your current themes. Bookcases come in a variety of sizes and can provide a soothing backdrop for favourite literature and colourful book spines. Even open alcoves have the capacity to elicit feelings of warmth and comfort. Install a few shelves to display family heirlooms, as well as ambient lanterns and candleholders. Finish with plenty of rugs, cushions, and layers of mood lighting for a cosy embrace.

 

 

 

Hallway Hideaway

Every family home needs a hidden storage area. Repurpose landings and hallways into storage areas for miscellaneous items. Streamlined consoles provide a convenient hideaway in one compact location. Slide rustic baskets beneath table legs to bundle extras inside - a favourite of ours for creating texture. Finally, don't forget to bring some life into the space with hanging frames, bright blooms in pots, and light-enhancing mirrors.




Under stair revival

With sloping angles and limited headspace, it's easy to overlook under stair space. In fact, these useful alcoves are most typically found next to your home's door and can help to create a welcoming first impression. It's all about finding discrete storage, whether you stash, fold, or stack. Shoe benches and blanket boxes are ideal for hiding filthy boots and other outerwear. They are topped with plush padding and provide a comfortable perch to kick off your shoes or prepare for the day ahead. Scarves, hats, and umbrellas can look disorganised when piled high on hooks. To keep the look tidy, hang them inside a tote bag beside a well selected assortment of coats. If your stairs are very narrow, try a sleek shoe cabinet with minimal hassle.



Hidden Home Offices

With more of us working from home, there has never been a greater demand for an efficient and inspiring workspace. Having an entire office to oneself, on the other hand, is often a luxury for most of us. Whatever your working rhythm is, storage-rich corner workstations with slide-out keyboard drawers find promise in every crevice. We adore a writing bureau, not only for their nice appearance, but also for their ability to transform neglected corners of the home into motivational zones that pack away neatly at the end of the day. Furrow stationery into their shelves, then fold up neatly next to a supportive office chair. Nature has been scientifically shown to increase our happiness and creativity. So, for a healthy homage to the outdoors, why not incorporate landscape artwork and low-maintenance houseplants?

 

 

Love your larder

A kitchen, as the social hub of any home, demands storage that can withstand the hustle and bustle of hectic family life. Fill tall cubbies with narrow larders to maximise space and free up worktops. Keep herbs close at hand on their convenient door racks while maintaining an ordered interior with discrete containers. You can also store dishes in their drawers for special occasions. If you have a small kitchen, shaker cabinets or farmhouse shelves filled with complementary jars and cookbooks are ideal. Making your regular culinary chores and morning coffees a little easier.
