More headspace

Now the work-home-life lines are becoming more blurred and with more of us working from home than ever, having the right storage solutions is an essential part of the new hybrid life, whatever the size of space you have.

Questions to ask yourself

Where is the storage to go?
How much space do you have and do you want it built in or free standing?
What is it you need to store? Do you want to be able to store items away or have them on display?
Open or closed storage?
What style would fit in with the decoration in the rest of your house?
Does the size of storage look in proportion to the room or space?

Storage options

Installation

Take time to consider where the storage is going to go, if its shelving that will be fixed to the wall consider the type of wall, whether its flat and what weight the shelf with its contents will be.
