Storage Container Tips

You want to create space, without having your storage containers look like they’ve been force to fit into the room, messing up its serene environment. You want them to look as stylish as possible, while serving their purpose well.
You can use these tips to keep your home looking good with these containers around.

Be unique: You can choose to get storage containers that aren’t plastic (we know that plastic is probably the first thing you thought of when you read “containers”). You can get woven baskets or even vintage crates to add a unique look to your room. Experiment with different materials and see what blends into the room or what instantly attracts the eyes to it.

Don’t overflow: Keep them looking neat and know that overflowing containers don’t look neat at all. Stand back and take a look at your containers and if stuff is piling up into mini Mount Everests or if you remember how you had to recruit your whole family to stand on the lid of the container to secure close it, then chances are they’re overstuffed.

Create uniformity: Nothing can beat uniformity when it comes to neatness. Provide some order to the way you place your containers in the area you have designated for them. Give them a smooth streamlined appearance by simply adjusting them when they’re out of place – straighten them neatly, cover them properly, etc.

Don’t label: Labeling your storage containers aren’t very stylish. They don’t make them look like they’re just another cool part of the room – they just make them look like plain out storage containers and that’s not exactly the idea you want your guests to have.
