"When you're working on a strict budget, cash doesn't usually extend to custom-made built-in cabinetry," says designer Anna Williams. "Instead, I've used a set of affordable and modern white bookshelves to create plenty of storage, without the expense." A bright abstract is a colorful focal point, while wicker baskets provide some hidden storage options.
This impressive walk-in closet is a fashionista's dream. Walls of built-in shelves provide the perfect place to store and display collections of handbags and shoes, and elegant chandeliers offer a sense of sophistication overhead.
Designer Claire Paquin created a space in the basement of her client's home that could function for young children, as well as space for adults. For the play area, carpet tiles create visual interest, color and warmth for kids to play on the floor. A bookcase cubby is a wonderful choice for toys and games.
To provide the home office space with stylish storage and display options, designers added a set of cube shelving to the space. Inside, the homeowners have a place to show off their books and prized possessions, while a set of paintings and three dimensional table lamps add a splash of flair.
The console table in the foyer welcomes guests with stylish storage and a unique display of art and candles. Designers added textured wallpaper and a soft rug to complete the design and give the small space a bit of dimension.
An assortment of bottle storage shelves gives a pleasing look to this wine closet. A vintage corkscrew display is a simple and fitting way to decorate the space. The warm wood is balanced by cool toned countertop and stone floor tiles.
The wall sconces allow the top of the nightstands to be used for displaying plants and framed photos, and for holding a three-speed fan made from African Sapele wood and high grade steel that provides cool breezes during warm nights.
A gold and white peony wallpaper covering a table top brings instant feminine flair to your dorm room decor. A tray and small storage containers help display items in an organized fashion. Vivid wall art adds even more brightness and color to the display.
To create shelving that fit the style of the kitchen, designers of America's Most Desperate Kitchens added some wood shelves suspended by metal bars to create industrial style shelves above the stove in this bright kitchen space.
Clear glass or plastic storage containers help keep cereal and other essentials fresh. Another bonus? They take up less space than boxes do, and add dorm room style to boot. Dress them up with stick-on paper or chalkboard labels.
