For some people getting organized is scary and unpleasant that is why whether you are a designer or a consumer the best way to overcome and conquer is with specific storage solutions. From the closet to the kitchen having an organized home reduces stress, saves time, improves health, and reduces waste to name just a few. It is something we all need and use daily from the time we get up until we go to sleep, organization is a lifestyle.
On July 28th #KBtribechat and Rev-A-Shelf will host a discussion on the topic of storage solutions for an organized home. We will come together and tweet about the latest trends, how COVID-19 has changed our storage needs, and the accessories available to meet them.
Our KBtribechat questions:
Have you seen an increase post-pandemic, of clients asking for storage solutions? If so, what are they asking for?
Storage solutions come in a variety of colors and finishes, what is trending?
When you think of storage it can be for an array of items, what storage accessories are you specifying the most and what items are in need of accessories to keep them organized?
With bulk buying the request for pantries are on the rise. Are you designing/specifying walk-in pantries? If so, what is the average square footage? Share photos.
Besides accessibility an important part of organization is visibility, do you specify storage accessories with lighting built-in or add lighting to cabinets and drawers? What accessories do you wish had a lighting option?
BLANCO defines livable design as transitional in feel – but with organic lines that are naturally inspired and offer durability and easy-to-clean performance. It’s not enough to walk the line between traditional and modern… today’s styles must also be performance driven – they need to save water, last longer, be easy-to-use and easy-to-clean. They also need to offer organic lines – gently sloping and easy to match with today’s surfaces, cabinetry and flooring. Even modern cabinetry is reliant on nature’s palettes and textures so the fixtures must match.
BLANCO is sponsoring and hosting our January 7, 2015 KBtribechat.
