The traditional boring bathroom cupboard has been replaced by a colourful eclectic feature in this home. How’s that for keeping your bathroom uncluttered and tidy, whilst maintaining some character?

If you value minimalism, then a neutral and contemporary layout is probably more your style. These modular shelves are an elegant choice for displaying and storing personal items and accessories.

7. Decorative and practical

Arranging these shelves is all part of the decorative experience. Opt for this wall-placed layout to free up floor space, turning your home into a relaxing haven.

8. A different take

It’s important to assess your storage needs when planning the shelves for your home. Go for shelves at various heights and keep your home organised, with dedicated storage for each item you own. The dark blue hue of these shelves is an amazing choice for a more vibrant and interesting abode.

9. Division of space

Living in a studio apartment doesn’t need to limit your storage. Divide your living space from the sleeping quarter with some modular shelves, and your home will feel a lot less cramped.

10. Kids' space

Shelving can be used to store those office essentials and files, or even your child’s favourite toys. So opt for colourful shelves that work well with their bedroom theme, and their room will be a stylish space that can be adapted as they grow up.
