You know you’re living the dream when you have a storage room in New York City.
So when this busy, working mom called, I couldn’t wait to jump right in. I quickly realized that while the space was fantastic… I mean, a storage room with a window?! It was going to need some work.
First, the family needed to do a bit of purging. Luckily, they handled that process like champs.
Second, they were going to need some shelving to make the space fully functional. Enter my favorite solution: the elfa system from The Container Store. We designed open shelving along all sides of the room to maximize the space.
We divided up the two sides of the room with 1) items the family uses on a regular basis on one side and 2) home improvement and renovation items on the other. Success!
