Country storage ideas – 10 of the best

Are you trying to declutter your home, or are you looking for a laidback country style that is cosy, not chaotic… We can help you organise your living space in an inspirational way. Get inspired by our range of ideas from built-in shelving to bedding storage.

Make a feature of your hallway by adding a floral curtain to the door to stop hallway drafts. Add a stylish coat stand for country walk essentials such as a hat and Barbour and add a console table to the area to store keys and post. Incorporate a row of hooks so items are not piled on the floor. A lamp with a floral lampshade will tie in with the floral theme against a backdrop of neutral walls.

Display your china in an armoire (open cupboard) for a country storage look. Paint the walls and furniture in delicate pastel shades of lavender and pale blue. Team the room with floral curtains or cushions – accessorise with a simple posy of English flowers.

In your bedroom proudly display the favourite pieces of your wardrobe for some country storage style. Hang belts and scarves from picture frames and proudly display your favourite footwear in a cubbyhole-style cabinet on shoeboxes or on shelving.

Create a vintage to your kitchen with an enamel bread bin and mugs. White, mint green and duck-egg blue crockery displayed on open shelving will complement this look perfectly. Finish the country-storage style with a jug of in-season flowers.

In the bathroom display your lotions and potions in a wire, three-tier caddy for some country storage style. Add features such as a curly metalwork towel ring.

For laidback country storage in the living room, make the centrepiece of the space a large vintage-wood chest – fill it with throws, board games etc. Expose the floorboards and create a laid-back vibe with a daybed piled with floral cushions. Use vintage-style suitcases to store extra cushions and throws, stacked on top of each other.

For a dining room make a feature of an open wall cabinet with a backdrop of striped wallpaper. Fill it with mismatched china above an aged-wood sideboard displaying everyday items such as a bowl of fruit and condiments.

Colourful living room armoire

Give a living room armoire a colourful twist by painting it in a soft violet shade and edging the shelves with a lavender trim. Team with a contrasting painted chair then hang a jolly floral curtain and bring in a bright lavender rug for impact. The creamy-yellow painted panelling helps to ground the scheme and give it some warmth.
