WARNING- This is not a pretty post! But it is practical!
When we bought our house off plan, I immediately realised that the sacrifice to live in such a pretty place, would be that storage space would be limited.
We are a family that needs storage.
Therefore, within 24 hours of completing on the property, ‘The Loft Man” arrived
. Actually, three men turned up, boarded the loft, installed two lights and a ladder, then voila – one usable space was created!
Most things are packed into clear boxes so we can easily see what each contains.
Hanging rails contain dresses that I rarely wear.
Mulled wine glasses are safety stowed until the season calls for them.
There are actually two shoe racks and a box contains my ‘going out’ shoes.
I have a bit of a shoe thing, if you follow me on Instagram you might have seen that I have brought three pairs of the same shoes back off my holidays – sorry – not really ha!
Moving on, I now have somewhere to store the heavy winter coats, in the summer.
There are also hooks for various overnight bags and rucksacks.
First Communion dresses and a shared christening robe are carefully stored at the far end of the space, with the odd evening dress.
Finally, every loft contains Christmas decorations and ours is no exception.
These pictures might look a bit messy but I know where everything is.
This arrangement has made living in our little house possible.
Where do you store such necessities?
Have a lovely day!
