Where better to write your to-do list than straight on your office wall? Nothing important will slip through the cracks when you use some colourful chalk to jot down the day’s agenda at your desk. The best part? It can be wiped off and changed every morning.
Chalkboard walls are perfect for kids – keep some chairs and a box of supplies handy and let them go crazy, with minimal cleaning effort involved.
A magnetic wall is surprisingly handy – just think about how crowded the fridge door can get.This concrete-coloured wall is perfect for a home office, with magnetic plaster creating a neutral background for clipboards and notes. Brighten it up with maps, wall art and colourful quotes.
Craft rooms are prone to clutter, so keeping as much as you can off the floor is important. Wrapping paper rolls and ribbon racks mounted on the walls make supplies easily accessible and will save you rifling through drawers, while a magnetic strip keeps smaller items in order.
If you’re short on storage, why not hang your pots and pans from the wall? Linear racks and wall hooks are great ways todisplay a prized collection of copper cookware, and make for stylish features in the kitchen. Bonus points if you pair yours with exposed brick.
In addition to being a big space-saver, hanging your pots at eye-level means you’ll spend less time rummaging through the cupboards looking for the right one. Screwing hooks into a customised wooden board and mounting it in the kitchen is a damage-free option if you’d prefer not to drill holes directly into the wall.
Hanging plants up the wall is a simple solution to a lack of garden space. Succulents, ferns and ivy work particularly well. Vertical brackets are a popular choice, but you could also use wall hooks or even lattice secured to the wall.
Wall hooks are one of the simplest ways to maximise space in any room of your home, and are especially handy in hallways and entrances where there is often very little space for storage. Hang hats, coats and bags within easy reach, while keeping the walls from looking too stark.
