Drink cart or…

Drink carts are a good way to store beverages, of course, but they can be used for other storage too. Some are so well designed with great aesthetics that they can be placed somewhere just for the look.

It’s stylish & smart alternative for small spaces, that do not have good storage space – & the cart is easy to move when it is time to clean.

Simple separation

There are many clever solutions to room dividers. Whether you build them, custom made, or perhaps created via furniture placement or by removable wall screens. It all depends on the layout of the room & the architectural features. The difficult thing is to decide what you want & need, what material to use & whether it is temporary or long term. I am talking about simple separation of different surfaces depending of need & function.

Open sesame

Storage – with simplicity, stylish & functional solutions, it’s no easy task to achieve. It’s not always that cheap either. Using cabinets with doors combined with open storage is a good solution. Closed storage for things that you don’t want to be seen & highlight your everyday objects – in good order. They should be easy to reach & easy to use. Whether it’s for the kitchen or for other rooms. It should be easy for you to live your everyday life.

An alternative is to maximize with shelves either on consoles or screwed directly into the wall. It’s super stylish & super easy. Keep it together in one place & not all over the place. Letting things lie visible creates a homely feel depending on how you make it or how well you do it. Or else, the impression might be messy instead of interesting or inspiring. The amount of variations & solutions is endless … use your creativity & adapt after your needs. I am right now cleaning up & storing things way but also storing things visible. Getting there – slowly 🙂
