As you all know, I have been living on my own for the last 3 years. The apartments I moved into were not furnished but I like it that way because then I can shower the place with my personal touches. The apartment I am living now in Pullman, WA has a really cool shelving space that I want to share with all of you.
I was very surprised when I saw this shelving space for the first time. Most college apartments don’t come with this kind of storage space. The idea for the space is like an open pantry where you can keep all of the extra stuffs you need for every day cooking. Till this day, I am still very glad I got that space to fall back on since my kitchen leaves me no room for storage after all the dinnerware are in the cabinet.
The shelving is built on an empty wall right next to the space designated for the dining room. There are 5 shelves total so the room for storage is endless. It has really helped me with keeping things organized which is great.
I filled the top shelves with the stuff animals I collected over the year. I know it sounds weird that a 21-year-old girl like me still has stuff animals. I am too short to reach the top shelf on a regular basis so the permanent stuff animals keep the shelf look nice and cozy. Plus, they are very cute to look at. The following shelves are filled with the dry goods and extra appliances that I can’t fit in the cabinet.
So if you are redesigning your kitchen and want some more storage space, you can totally put up a shelf like this one. If you want it to be closed, you can always put a sheer curtain in front of it which can make everything look very pretty.
