Whether you upgrade an old piece of furniture or design a custom closet system from scratch, make room to hide your laundry baskets to keep the bedroom clean and clutter-free.
- Dress up basement columns with crown molding
A simple column can add architectural interest to a finished basement with an added detail like crown molding. To add extra character, consider painting the column with a bold accent color.
- Camouflage the thermostat
Hide your thermostat in plain sight by surrounding it with small framed art and family photos!
- Draw attention away from that A/C return grill
A small, turquoise table adds a splash of color to this foyer, and draws attention away from the air-return grill. It also provides a convenient place to drop mail and keys on the way in.
- Disguise those distracting cords
Use Command hooks to run the lamp cord along the back of the table to keep it tucked away. Also works well for phone chargers and other gadgets!
- Cabinet doors = extra storage
Take advantage of every inch of space in your kitchen by storing small items on the backs of the kitchen cabinet doors.
- Hide lesser-used kitchen appliances
For those heavy appliances that aren’t used every day, install a swing-out shelf within a cabinet. It keeps the counters free for workspace, while helping avoid heavy-lifting!
