We love this sleek black unit from Ikea for its simple design and practical use. The FALSTERBO wall unit is made from coated steel and would work really well in a hallway or kitchen. With three shelves, three drawers and hooks along the bottom you can fill it up to the max.

What’s even better is that it’s a really good price of £70, so why not get two!

We love a diy project when it’s simple, but extremely practical and looks good. We spotted this tutorial for a magazine shelf on themerrythought.com.

Using plywood for the main structure and a leather strap to hold the magazines in place, this make will look great in an office or living room. Adapt it to hold cookbooks in a kitchen or reading books in a kids bedroom.

Gone are the days of hiding everything behind cabinet doors and wardrobes, it time to embrace what you own and show it off.

This Autumn furniture is to be admired not only by how it looks but also whats on it. Open clothes rails instead of wardrobes in the bedroom, doorless cabinets in the kitchen and drinks trolleys in the living room is where its at.

Going for this kind of look will obviously mean some serious de-cluttering and organising. Pick your favourite pieces to display on shelves, your best dinnerware out for all to see in the kitchen and neat hung clothing on rails. Its much more of a curated feel, almost shop like with minimal designed pieces of furniture.

Of course there is still a need to for some closed doors for those items you just cant live without but perhaps are less appealing on the eye. But generally if you can invest in some key storage you will start to embrace it and destress knowing you have a place for everything, and it looks good at the same time.
