A very good Article and very useful too... I like the idea of zoning of different storages.. I think it would be great having proper zoning of things pre-planed while planning of building floor plans ; interior etc. A free flowing i.e flexible interior spaces and storage zoning is a quality of a good architects who makes such plans called functional planning... :)

Ace Your Space

Some good tips although given space restraints sometimes it's a case of finding where ever there is spare storage. Our lounge has lots of storage so as well as the usual books & DVDs it also houses the bulk of our filing. We don't use the things there, it's on a different floor from the desk space but its all in one place.

My OH complains when I say 'storage'. What I mean is cupboards.
