What Houzz contributors are saying:
Make a wine storage statement. Take a cue from the creative book Living in a Nutshell, by Janet Lee, and install floating shelving in a zigzag shape to hold your favorite bottles of wine. Painting the wall behind the shelving is a nice touch — guests won't be able to resist perusing your collection.
DIY built-in wine rack: Take the clean and modern look of open shelves and give them a quirky twist by installing them in a zigzag pattern for wine storage. The result is a fresh and unique built-in storage piece that frees up cabinet and shelving space in the kitchen.What do you think is the most important thing for a small-space owner or renter to keep in mind?Don't take a size-ist attitude towards your space. You don't have to decorate with small junior-sized furniture and accessories. You can go bold with color and pattern. A small space comes with a list of flaws, but if you find a way to highlight them as quirky design features, then guests will be so dazzled, they'll forget you live in a box.
