STORE IT! Where to Put All the Things You Need to Keep by Mervyn Kaufman After pulling everything you own off shelves and out of closets and cabinets—and disposing of what you don’t need and won’t ever use—your next task is to figure out how to store what’s left. Mervyn Kaufman, author of Store It!, leads you through every corner of the house, from entry to attic, exploring ways to expand storage and eliminate clutter. You will see how consoles with drawers and benches with bins can help you hide essentials. In living and dining rooms, Kaufman explains how a wall of shelving can help you store all your books or collectibles, and how discreetly positioned cabinets will keep platters, big bowls and table linens where you need them but out of sight. Kitchen storage can be amplified, and storage in tiny rooms and in bathrooms too. Kids’ rooms, like home offices, seem to invite clutter. This book will show you how to contain it so it won’t overflow elsewhere. Last but not least, bedrooms and closets get a thorough examination. Store It! offers space-stretching ideas from gifted designers. What you see, and are invited to adapt, will vary in scope and complexity, yet is focused on one goal: to make your home comfortable and uncluttered, with everything in its own accessible place.
