Made to measure storage to order online
For a while now, we have wanted more storage in our bedroom. We had been sentimentally holding on to a vintage linen cupboard that has been with us for years but that is now in the guest bedroom as it was beautiful, but not so practical for everyday use. So when we were approached by Tylko to check out their new Type 02 shelving in some of our signature colours, the timing couldn’t have been more perfect. It can be hard to find the right storage in a victorian property with odd shaped alcoves and this collection offers the flexibility of made to measure without any hassle. Just put in your measurements, pick a configuration that give you the maximum/best storage for your space and place the order to be delivered. Then you just have to watch Marie Kondo on repeat and get ready to put your most joyful things on display and in the drawers (everything visible of when you open it, of course) when it arrives.
Shelves that stand out because they fit in
We have chosen the navy blue option from the new colour palette to bring out the detail in our floral curtains.
One upright shelving unit fits perfectly into the alcove and the sideboard on the opposite side is great for storage.
You can choose from open shelving, drawers or cupboard doors and all are flexible in colour...we have stuck with the block colour for impact.
Buckley is watching on as we style it up, from his favourite vantage point...our bed.
We love the options available and it is a great way to get bespoke sizes with easy online ordering and delivery. You can choose more random configuration of shapes, but we love the grid impact of this square design. It is also available in Terracotta, Sand and Midnight Blue, White, Mint and Forest Green (we struggled to resist this too) and in the previous range (type 01) you can opt for exposed ply in the mix too. We went for the all over, wrap around Midnight Blue.
It is a great finish and we put it together ourselves. The only thing you need to think about is that you have to attach brackets to the wall for taller units to make them totally safe. This is standard for tall units, so no concern, just something to factor in if you are not savvy with a drill and screw.
The design edge of this brand caught our eye and it give the bedroom a new layer of coherence. It got us in the mood for a good bit of tidying up and will enjoy filling all the drawers and cupboards slowly, ‘Kondo’ style.
