1. Use a traditional door setup. A niche that's used expressly for those plastic behemoths gets extra polish from a lattice door with an honest-to-goodness knob. Choose a lattice with a tight enough weave that it doesn't defeat the purpose.
4. Install a sliding door. Are barn-style doors ever not cool? They'd be particularly good at concealing cans — just push them aside and wheel the trash out.
5. Add an industrial edge. These corrugated units put an urban-chic twist on standard metal pails.
7. Use a gate as disguise. The panels that conceal the trash cans outside this home look like a classic fence-and-gate combo, thanks in part to the matching section that flanks the steps.
