04 November 2015The modern home is free from clutter, and always immaculate. So the aspirational home magazines would have us believe. But real homes are lived in, and often messy, especially if you have a family.
One of the primary reasons for this clutter, day-to-day aside is lack of adequate storage space. If things are hard to put away, often it won't happen! Fortunately there are many new methods for keeping homes tidy and organized. Perhaps you're a minimalist or maybe you just need additional options for storage. Either way, here are five ways to 'everything in its right place'.

For the modern staircase this is a spin on the classic 'under the stairs' storage option. Store a winter woolies, linen and whatever else you fancy. Sealing off with a timber hinged door.
Hide away your toiletries and kids toys, for a beautiful bathroom that you can actually relax in, and one that looks cleaner - longer!
Another bight idea for your bathroom, and for your little ones is to include a pull-out step in the bottom of your vanity cabinet. No more late night trip over the bright blue plastic hippo!
