Storage and Efficiency in the Home: 2022 Recap

This past year has been a rollercoaster for homeowners everywhere. The world of storage and efficiency in the home saw some serious innovation as WFH shifted the need to design specific storage solution to suite WFH demands. From improving existing ways to store items to introducing new concepts, the main characters of 2022 were the kitchen, the bathroom, and the laundry room.

The kitchen is the centre of attention when it came to storage and efficiency. With butler pantries becoming more and more popular, homeowners found ways to maximize their multi-use storage capabilities. From built-in shelving to custom-built cabinets, the pantry was not only functional but also aesthetically pleasing.

2. Bathroom Storage

This year, a more popular trend for bathrooms was to incorporate creative storage solutions like concealed storage behind stone wall and architectural shelving in showers. This way you can easily store things like towels, toilet paper and other small items out of sight which creates more space than traditional towel racks. Not only does it save on space, but everything is still within reach when needed!
