Here, Vicky has selected five feature storage pieces in mesh metal and offers tips and advice on how to use them:
The Mish Mesh shelving range from Loaf offers a storage solution for every space. I love the 3 x 4 cube mesh unit and would use it to display my favourite books and magazines. As with most stylish storage solutions, it should not be cluttered or over-filled.
This rustic mesh storage cupboard is a practical solution for an entrance or hallway, offering plenty of space for anything that usually gets dumped at the door; bags, laptops, shoes, children's toys. Make use of the label slots too and give each member of the family their own compartment - I suggest using a vintage style label maker for name tags.
This is a perfect example of when mesh works brilliantly. Ideally, it should be used for not only practicality but style too. Your belongings should be ‘placed’ rather than ‘put’ in here because the contents are so visible from the outside. Light coloured objects work perfectly and when you use a cabinet like this, you have no choice but to be clutter free and organised.
These mesh crates work fantastically for a wide variety of more permanent storage items. If you’re dividing papers in an office, utensils in a pantry or displaying bottles and spices in the kitchen. You might like to add a liner in the bottom if the stored items might leak or spill.
I would use these shelves in the bathroom for crisp white, neatly folded or rolled face cloths and beauty products I use daily. But they would also serve as stylish open bedside storage. Never over fill these shelves or the look will be ruined.
I prefer my home to include just the right amount of furniture for the space that I have available and I deliberately choose storage designs that will limit how much "stuff" I accumulate. I would never buy additional storage to house excess belongings. Instead, I would declutter and reduce what I have to ensure my home is continuously streamlined and well styled.
