Storage doesn’t have to be sterile. Here are ingenious, eye-catching ideas for every room in the house. By Heather Summerville
Does the disarray of your shelves send you into despair? This wall-mounted organizing tool makes piles pretty, with artful
compartments that help you divvy up contents by size and shape. Whether used solely for books or to display a mix of objects,
it guarantees a striking “shelfscape.” In fact, two units side by side (or above and below) can solve myriad storage woes
while creating a stunning focal point for a room. Industrial-metal wall-mounted bookcase, $299, cb2.com.
Prefer to make over the shelves you’ve got? First take a look at what you need to stash. If books are not a storage challenge in your home, recast your bookcases for other uses: Lighten the load on jam-packed cupboards by moving everyday glassware into a bookcase. Use one in the basement as a spare pantry (cans won’t go missing on shallow shelves). Devote a small bookcase to your kids’ collection du jour (Pokémon, ponies, Transformers), and earmark the bottom shelf for critical projects in progress, like Lego sculptures.
