Tailor to fitOnce you’ve identified those items you’re going to keep, you can then start planning storage for them. “Group like with like and decide in which part of your home it makes sense to store each category,” Jane says. “Consider what you do in each room and what you need nearby to support your use of that space.”“Work out what you need the storage unit to contain and design it accordingly,” Nimi says. “Think about the details: for example, work desks and TV units need a lot of cables, so it’s often neater to locate the cable route and drill holes into the storage to conceal them.” “Consider ergonomics, especially your own physical needs,” Jane adds. “A height of between 800 and 1800mm is easiest for most adults to access. If you struggle to crouch down, you can use drawers for lower storage to make it easier to get to things, especially at the back.”

The disrupterTo some, this is a neat, uniform way to stack books that have either already been read, or are clearly organised in indexed categories, without all the visual noise and stimuli of the coloured spines. For others, however, this arrangement is a total no-no. Where do you stand on this debate? Here are a few different points of view to consider.

Style it upA generous amount of open storage is one option for this space, and as the stairs are low it’s a sensible one. The pitfall with open shelving is that it can easily look messy – especially in a hallway where we tend to dump things as we come in. Pull-out baskets are one solution, but if it’s books you want to store consider this stylist’s trick of turning most of the spines away from view, showing instead a lovely range of neutral hues. Finding the book you’re looking for may be a challenge, but sometimes style has to come first.

um yeah. we have way too many books not to do this. i think it will look tacky if you don't keep it "staged" all the time, esp if it is visible to the living room
