Creativity is the answer to many of life’s problems, especially when it comes to the home. There are only so many places you can put things, so the more you can think outside of the box within your walls, the better. If KonMari-ing or major decluttering were easy, we would all do it. But since stuff—at least some of it— is important, most of us have to find solutions for storage. Small space dwellers are the best people to steal ideas from, since the struggle is particularly real for them. So, we looked to a few of our favorite tiny house and apartment tours to bring you some ideas and products you can use to be stealth about storage in your space.
Hi, Folks! It’s been one of the snowiest winters in memory, and none of us have been up to the mountains yet this season, therefore the workshop is closed until April 22nd – so we can go make some tracks before it all melts!
Hooks come in handy in many kitchens to keep utilitarian things like pots, pans, and utensils right within reach. They can also serve as a decorative element to turn your best-looking cookware and tools into part of the room’s flare.
But a blank wall is not the only place to hang hooks in your kitchen! Just about any surface will do. Try one of these overlooked places to hang hooks in your kitchen.
Decorating a tiny house? The only way to go is up. Not only does designing vertically create the illusion of a clean, clutter-free space, but it can also trick guests into thinking your home is bigger.
“Store items high and low, and out of the eye-line to make spaces seem bigger,” Spesard says.
Take advantage of the space underneath your bed and couch, and install a hanging pot holder in your kitchen.
They say “tiny house,” but on Russian Hill we know this is de rigeur for “apartment living.”
When it comes to making some of these ideas a reality in your studio or flat, we can help make that happen.
Many of these ideas were the inspiration for the start of Russian Hill Handyman Co. — if you’ve seen the loft bed in Rick’s apartment, you’ll know what we mean.
Two tiny house experts share their best decorating tips.
We give advice on a lot of subjects. Should I conceal the wiring for my wall-mounted flat screen in a rental? Can my ceiling support a ceiling fan? How can I eliminate drafts in my Victorian apartment?
But when it comes to where to take a date on Russian Hill, we defer to the experts over at Eater.
Paying homage to neighborhoods throughout San Francisco, Anchor is leading off the initiative with its tribute to Russian Hill and some custom artwork and apparel. Again from the Anchored in SF site:
We’ve partnered with SF local artist, Amos Goldbaum, to create custom artwork for #AnchoredInSF. During this celebration, you can collect limited edition posters and merchandise that represent the heart and soul of each neighborhood.
Loving Russian Hill as we do, we hope you’ll join us at this neighborhood celebration when it comes around on the calendar.
