7 Neat Storage Tricks In An Industrial-Style Condo
Ever tried hanging pots and pans as wall accents? Or what about stepladder drawers? Check out all the cool storage tricks here.
Homeowners Edgar and James have a 110sqm condo unit filled with stunning, raw-industrial details, but it’s the ingenious storage that had us floored. Here are the noteworthy storage solutions we’ve spotted:
A pots and pans “installation”
In the kitchen, this panel “art installation” holds most of the homeowners’ cooking tools, including pots and pans, spatulas and ladles, even chopping boards—the metal rods keep everything in place. The panel next to it is a handy chalkboard for writing down lists and recipes.
Different kinds (and sizes) of containers
If you get past the cool Starbucks coffee cup shelf over the range hood (a clever touch), check out the various food containers and catchalls on the kitchen island. In spite of the various sizes, the one detail that ties them altogether is that they are made out of glass. Find similar at Rustans, Abenson Home, and Make Room.
Bins and catchalls
Even the bedside tables get some storage love and organization by way of all-white bins to store desk accessories. You can find similar bins at Muji.
A combi of wire baskets and drawers
Edgar and James has quite an organized closet space in spite of it being open, because of the variety of storage options in the closet. Aside from the rods, there is an assortment of wire baskets and drawers with translucent fronts, so that you could easily see the contents at a glance.
Want to have your toiletries at hand? Then get a trolley for your bathroom, which you can wheel over to any spot you want. Add bins to organize it furthere. You can find these trolleys at office supplies stores and home depots.
The oldest, and possibly the most elegant trick in the bathroom storage book is to use a nice, small ladder to hang and dry your towels. You can find ladders like these at Kultura Filipino, the Ifugao handicrafts section of the Baguio market, or at Ils De Tuls in Quiapo.
A kaidan-dansu is a traditional Japanese step chest, where you can store your belongings inside. The steps leading up to the bunk bed in the guest bedroom use this concept, with generous storage cubbies underneath (there’s a seating ledge, too).
