Storage Solutions

by ercol on January 28, 2016

Traditionally, the start of the year is a time to ring in the new, cast out the old and make the most of your living space, and more and more people are choosing this time to set up their own ventures at home. While the kitchen table may be a useful starting point, any growing home-based business will need efficient space for essential equipment and good quality storage which is easy to manage.

Here at ercol we’re fully aware of the increasing trend for working from home. We’re offering an attractive range of solutions which are not only practical for the working day but also provide a home with beautiful and versatile furniture which can be adapted for different uses.

To create a handsome home office with ercol furniture, there are three key pieces to consider: the storage cabinet, the desk and bookshelves. For discerning home businesses ercol offers a variety of pieces which will work efficiently together. Bookshelves and sideboards from ercol are perfect for offering plentiful and multi-purpose storage and the Bosco range, with its exposed joints and curved edges, is an excellent example of furniture which is functional while still looking good within the home.

The contemporary curves and sophisticated craftsmanship of the Romana Highboard make it a stylish and incredibly practical piece of furniture. Made from pale oak and finished in a clear matt lacquer to both protect the timber and show off its beauty, it’s the ideal solution to home-owners who are looking for maximum storage on a small footprint.

The Windsor Bureau provides a flexible piece for the working day. The drop leaf opens to reveal a spacious office table top, a perfect surface for writing or for a laptop. There are cable holes at the back for power leads and sections within the desk for organising books, files and paperwork. A spacious drawer and plenty of cupboard space will provide ample room to house essential business material and, when the working day is done, the desk can be closed.

Kitchen and Dining

ercol has some great storage solutions for the kitchen and dining area. For example, the Bianco Three-Door Sideboard is a great option for homes in need of space to store dishes, glasses, cutlery and objects such as vases and baskets which aren’t needed every day.

The Living Room

Where to store DVDs, remote controls and TV guides is a familiar problem. The Romana Wide TV Unit from ercol provides a stylish piece which not only provides an ideal surface for the television but also a very practical solution with discreet holes to keeping multiple wires kept safely out of sight. Likewise, the Svelto Cabinet is a good-looking piece with sliding doors which gives the option of revealing treasured objects for display while hiding essential (but less attractive) bits and pieces out of sight.

The Bedroom

Ercol is well known for its high quality bedroom ranges which include wardrobes, chests of drawers and bedside tables. However, the latest addition to these ranges is the matching bench to go at the foot of the bed. These versatile pieces are ideal for storing bedding and clothes but are also great for spare shoes, hats and bags which are best out of sight. These benches offer excellent and comfortable extra seating too.

Just done exactly that: a Windsor 3 door high sideboard with display top, a much loved (and used!) Old Colonial draw leaf table, (office chair) and Evergreen Easy chairs and sofa for clients. Amazing storage in the Windsor sideboard, display top to brighten up the office, a table/desk which extends so two can work and plenty of chill space on the Evergreens. Perfect. I’m here now with a big smile on my face!
