Storage Solutions for your Q Lofts Condo

Wed, 25 Sep 2013 by Polycorp

Q Lofts is a condo in Halifax Nova Scotia that celebrates elegant minimalism without giving up comfort or style.  You can include unique storage solutions to maximize space in your condo. Read below to find out how.

Instantly add extra storage to your kitchen with hooks or a wall rack to hang your cooking utensils, pots and pans.  They’ll be easily accessible when it’s time to cook; this solution also frees up space in your cabinets, drawers and island for other kitchen necessities. One of the best places to locate hooks or racks is on the back of a door - front door, back door, cupboard door, bathroom door, bedroom door.  They’re all great places to store things so that they don’t take up floor space!

Floating shelves are another great solution for adding storage to your condo. They’re colorful, come in different shapes and pretty much can hold everything from books to knick-knacks to décor and photos. A wall organizer with hooks and cubbies located conveniently near the front door will come in handy for holding your keys and mail.

The flex room wall is great room to turn into a book shelf or for floor-to-ceiling shelving.  If you’d like to add a seating area to this space, invest in multifunctional furniture like an ottoman or bench.  Not only will you gain extra seating but you can also use it for extra storage.  If you’re going to use this room as a second bedroom, purchase a bed with storage right in the headboard and under bed storage drawers.  These drawers are ideal for storing items like extra linens, cleaning supplies, seasonal décor or out of season clothes.  Or you can mount the bed up high like a bunk bed with a desk or storage underneath.

Transform the space under the stairs leading up to your loft into usable space.  If you’re a wine aficionado make this a wet bar or a place store wine or unique craft beers.  A cozy sitting nook or workstation with shelving can work well in this area as well.  Another option is to hang your bicycle.  It’s a unique solution for parking your bike while adding an artistic element to your Halifax Nova Scotia condo. 

We hope these clever solutions will spark ideas to help you add storage to your condo.  Stay in the know for what’s happening with Q Lofts and Polycorp by following us on Twitter, liking us on Facebook or subscribing to our newsletter.
