It’s summer, which is often a time we try to de-clutter, and “air out” our homes. No one wants to be crammed into an overpacked, stuffy room during these hot and humid months. One way to cut the clutter–use furniture with multi-purpose!
It’s time for your #DSTipOfTheWeek! This is where our expert interior designers offer simple, easy tips that you may have never thought about, or have overlooked. This week’s tip comes from Decorating Solutions designer Dawn Adamec, who calls our Waukesha store home.
Dawn uses this Juno Storage Cocktail Ottoman as an example, and explains, “This is a great piece. You can sit on it, put your feet on it, or set an oversized tray on it and it becomes a coffee table. The best part… remove the top and it becomes a great place to store pillows, blankets (if you have that AC set on high!), magazines, and toys.”
Furniture… it’s not just pretty, it can also be functional! Check in next Monday for another #DSTipOfTheWeek.
When it comes to interior design, sometimes it’s best to go the unconventional route.
For example–the coffee table. It’s been a living room staple for years. But who just sits around and sips coffee or tea anymore?
That brings us to this week’s #DecoratingSolutions Tip of the Week. It comes from Waukesha Interior Decorator Rhonda Vivoda.
Rhonda’s words of wisdom: “Instead of a coffee table use a big ottoman or a couple smaller ottomans. Ottomans are great because they can act as additional seating, footrests, or you can put trays on top and still use them as coffee tables. Sometimes an ottoman can be a storage unit as well!”
So put your feet up and relax, or sip your tea from a tray. The all-purpose ottoman is ready for you! We post a quick and easy decor tip each Monday. Check in next week for another #DSTipOfTheWeek.
It’s Monday, and you’re probably feeling tired and a little uninspired. Well, here’s your Steinhafels #DecoratingSolutions Tip of the Week to give you a burst of motivation!
This week we look at ways to make your storage stylish. Just because it’s functional doesn’t mean it can’t be fun and trendy.
That brings us to our tip from Interior Decorator Laura Hoffman of our Appleton store:
“Incorporate storage wherever you can. It’s easy–just measure the space and add fun baskets, containers, or other organizers. These were just plain shelves at the end of a kitchen island before I transformed them into a fun and functional focal point!”
