As you may have noticed, we’re very big on storage ideas at Go Modern. And the trickier the space presented to us the more we love it. There is a great feature in the March 2018 issue of Essential Kitchen Bathroom and Bedroom Magazine about this very thing… featuring a Q&A with … US! So here are a few tips and ideas below based on what we shared with EKBB (although do go out and buy the magazine – it’s always a very good read!).
Getting the right balance between storage and space in a bedroom is crucial. We often find clients need more storage than they have space for so we play around with ideas, trying to incorporate storage wherever we can.

If it’s bigger changes you’re looking for then wall units will definitely provide a long-term solution. There are lots of different styles to choose from, all modular, which means you can create exactly the design you want.
If there’s one thing that most of us agree on it’s that our homes never have enough space to store everything. It’s a modern day curse but, as we always try to look for the positive in things, the upside is that contemporary designers produce furniture that creatively uses every last available inch of space, producing designs that, for us, tick all the boxes – beautiful to look at, high quality and very practical too.
So, we’ve pulled together a small selection of some of our latest designs, all of which deserve praise for their quality and creativity – while sharing that great ability to surprise us with their ingenious hidden storage. Continue reading “Surprising Storage”
