Hoarding is a natural human instinct – but admittedly some people are worse than others! However, there’s a fine difference between being a collector and being a hoarder, and many residents of Singapore find that they do not have enough storage space in their homes to adequately supervise all their material objects and collections. So here are some incredible storage ideas you can use to satisfy the hoarder in you!
1. Customized shelves
Customized shelves are designed specifically for whatever you want to store or display in them. If its designer bags that you want to display, then each shelf must be large enough to accommodate the typical size and dimension of a bag. Similarly, if you’re designing a storage shelf for your watch collection, then make sure to emphasize the display as well.
2. Vanity storage
The storage area of a vanity is one of the most underrated parts of the whole bathroom interior design. While there’s some piping down there as well, you need to focus on designing separate store areas for towels, soaps and other bathroom paraphernalia. So whenever you opt for a customized vanity design, always look at a lot of options on how you can enhance its storage capacity!
3. Sitting units
Originally conceived as bay-window units, these have seen a definite evolution in both design and aesthetics. You can definitely design an in-built storage unit camouflaged as a sitting underneath glass walls, indoor windows and partition walls. It’s a great way to get some extra sitting and storage space at the same time.
4. Customized kitchen drawers
Customized storage spaces are all the rage in Singapore these days, and you definitely need to keep an eye on them if you’re renovating your kitchen. You can always build extra drawers around your in-built appliances and create a personalized cabinet arrangement that complements your cooking style.
5. Custom wardrobes
You always have some extra design leeway with wardrobe designs because you can customize both the internal storage and door leafs. So whether you want a small walk-in closet inside your bedroom, or whether you’re hung up on a specific door leaf design, you can always have your way with it!
