Whether you prefer elegant lines and the spartan look of modern architecture, or charming antiques and shabby cottage chic frills, nothing spoils the aesthetics of your home faster than out of place objects and ugly furnishings. With all your interest in minimalism, you may feel that the only option when it comes to creating an orderly home is to clean up all your belongings.
Fortunately, building hidden storage spaces allows you to maintain a visually stunning home while also allowing you to store items that you don’t want to display. Especially in very small houses and apartments, adding a hidden storage space can visually increase the available space by separating unused items.
Kitchens are perhaps the easiest room to add extra storage as they already contain cabinets and shelves. But by adding hidden drawers for legs, a hidden knife rack, or even a hidden folding table, you can expand your available workspace. Items such as laundry can be more difficult to store. If you can’t install a laundry chute, you can still camouflage mountains of dirty clothes by using hidden baskets and ironing boards.
