What Houzz contributors are saying:
Work in some wickerStorage baskets are the easy option for most of us. They give the impression of order without requiring us to endlessly sort out all our bits and pieces into carefully assigned homes. In the bathroom, use them for spare toilet rolls, or to sweep up half-finished toiletries. In the kitchen, use them as a home for kitchen roll and clingfilm or packets of coffee, and in the living room gather up unruly toys at the end of a long day. They also work in hallways for shoes, and in bedrooms for magazines.Which home accessories lift your spirits? Share your thoughts in the Comments below.
Weave in some wickerInvesting in a few simple wicker baskets can be a fast way to add traditional country style to a kitchen. Use them on open shelves or rest them on top of units. As well as providing a handy home for everything from kitchen roll to spare packets of pasta, they add texture and character, especially if everything else is white or cream.
Shelves line the corner of the scullery area, with recesses for vegetable baskets below the counter. Attractive jars and a vintage-style food mixer give it a comfortable, rustic feel. Bins are housed in the cupboard to the left of the sink, while a professional dishwasher is hidden behind the door on the right. “It has a very quick glass washing cycle,” says Peter. “So it’s perfect for entertaining.”Want to give your kitchen a designer feel?
