I'm finding myself of late more and more in need of storage space. Here's one of my recent solutions: there was a less than attractive space in a corner that served a purpose for housing piping, but offered enough space for storage. So to revamp the space, and add a bit of elegance, we removed the existing door and shelving and replaced it with beautiful wooden cabinetry that offered open shelving storage.

A far more aesthetically pleasing space, it is now used to store toilet paper rolls, towels and decorative storage baskets.

This solution would also work in any room of the house; in the kitchen for extra dishes or baskets, in a bedroom for storing books, or baskets, and in a study or family room to keep storage bins with toys or office supplies. The possibilities are endless.

You might be surprised to know that we used book shelving - the key is being creative and seeing things for more than they appear; so remove those blinkers and keep your eyes open for them. Shelving can replace side tables in a study, for example, and offer far more useful space solutions.

So look around your home and search for more of those savvy solutions.



Do you think an increase in JUTC bus fares is justified at this time?
