Stylishly sophisticated joinery

Stylish storage covers all sorts of design ground. Depending on the room you’re working with, and the stylistic selection of elements, storage can take many different shapes and forms. When organising one’s home, a great place to get started is in the kitchen. Kitchens are notoriously messy, unkempt and chaotic, consequently causing a home to feel unordered and impractical. Spruce up your home’s aesthetic grace and flair by incorporating built-in storage.

But where should you start when attempting to create an elegant and tidy room? The pantry is an ideal area to overhaul, consequently creating a cooking space that is productive and dynamic. This example from Maple & Gray is a fabulous demonstration of stylish storage, since it brings a level of purpose and functionality to the cupboard.
