Storage Sorted: A Room-by-room Guide
Every year it is always the same – new year, new me! The resolutions are rolling in and we’re all hopeful that we can stick with them to adopt positive habits and improve our lives. We find that it is easier to stick to your resolutions and goals if you’re in a well-organised and efficient space. There’s plenty of reasons why; it all seems a little less overwhelming in an organised space and everything is just easier to find. In turn, an organised space will save you so much time which will be better spent achieving your goals.
It’s a lifesaver – combining two of our all-time favourite things, portability and storage! Ideal for things that are regularly moved from room to room, like refreshments while entertaining, as well as kids storage (packing up kids’ toys and carting them to the bedroom to pack away in the toy box). They are just perfect for cleaning up odds and ends that make the room look cluttered.
Like with like, this is just a great general rule for every room, but because the living room is the place where family members come together it is easy for a wide variety of items to land up here. Grouping and storing similar items together makes them easier to find when you are looking for them because you already have a general idea of where it should be.

Pedestals are pretty much the standard these days, everyone has them. They don’t take up much space but they are so important and serve a great purpose. Find out which pedestal you should be using – match your pedestal with your personality.
One of the most important, and not always spacious, rooms in the house is the bathroom. If you have limited storage in your bathroom we recommend adding a floating vanity to give you that little bit of extra storage space to pack away toiletries.
