  1. Sliding Storage

    Hide

    Normally used in kitchens, a pull-out pantry becomes a shoe closet when the shelves are installed at an angle; professional assistance is recommended for this project. Nonskid shelf liners prevent pairs from sliding when the unit moves.

  4. Plant Swatch

    Hide

    The next time you make a trip to the nursery to fill a gap in your garden, take along a bundle of clippings from the surrounding bed (bind the stems with a piece of twine). Having samples of your plants will help you choose new flora that fits right in.

  5. Squeeze More Room Out of Small Quarters

    Hide

    In the compact laundry workstation and storage area of a small bathroom, the stacked European-style washer-dryer set economizes space. A shelf between units pulls out for folding items fresh from the dryer, then slides out of sight. A matchstick shade lowers all the way to the floor, gracefully hiding the utility area when guests are expected.

  6. Hiding Supplies

    Hide

    Keep laundry supplies tidy and out of sight with built-in shelves and a curtain that can be pulled across them when the laundry is done. Mothballs and cedar chips are stored in canning jars, and little bars of soap are kept in airtight containers. Towels for drying hand-washables are stacked on one shelf. Special stain remedies are kept together in a galvanized metal box; detergent is in a large plastic container with a scoop for easy measuring.
