A shelf is the first thing that pops in mind when you think of storage…but why only stick to the tried and tested types? Here we will show you 7 completely out of the box designs for shelves which will make you go “wow”!
This is a real Jaguar with its heavier parts removed and set up against the wall to act as a shelf!
This one is an interesting compilation of “crosses”…easy to get done too.
This fold out shelf is actually a mural painting, sectioned into multiple panels. Just a simple mechanism can convert it into a storage unit from wall decor. Incredible!
If you think pipes are just functional and can’t be a thing of beauty, think again…this space saving shelf cum coat rack looks super cool despite its simplicity.
This shelving unit uses taut cables fixed on a wooden frame, to hold books, magazines, clothes and so on…won’t be able to support very heavy items though.
This wall unit celebrates the beauty of “differences”…and we love the space created for the guitar 🙂
“Hole in the floor”…sums up the idea behind these unusually designed shelves which look as if their bottoms have been sliced off!

Most of us, at some point of time in life have been obsessed with a larger than life hero…Spider-man, Superman, Batman! Remember when you were a kid and wanted that poster of your favorite superhero real bad? But now, kids or teenagers want more than that…they love a theme bedroom of their own. Which is why we thought a bit of creativity is bound to go a long way to create the ambiance which will really make them happy 🙂 So here are our inspired ideas for a Spider-man themed room:

While researching we landed upon this amazing Spider-man Incredibed for toddlers. No better way to live your fantasy! Or you might also decide on this fantastic bedding set for your little superhero. In case you want to keep it simple, you can go for chic red and blue combination of bed sheets, pillows and blankets.
Designing a theme bedroom doesn’t imply you have to go big all the way…small but significant furnishing or decor items can make a unique statement too! Like a bean bag in a snazzy print, an out of the box table lamp, a cool wall clock or something exceptional like a Swarovski crystal spider web night light!
And if there’s an artist hidden inside you then be bold and paint a relevant design on the wall or ceiling yourself! Like a giant spider web or the city skyline…basically it should set your tiny tot’s spidey senses tingling 🙂 Last and not the least, involve him or her in the decor ideas, after all it is going to be his dream land…

Your bedroom is a place where you relax, unwind, and let your hair down. So it goes without saying that a clean and tidy room will always look more inviting than a shabby one, when you come home exhausted after a tiring day! This is exactly the reason why it’s crucial to control chaos in the bedroom and get organized…here are some great tips:
The traditional closet is always the first resort for most of us. A bit of clever designing can create adequate space…racks for hanging clothes, place for keeping folded items, closed cabinets, drawers for more delicate things, open shelves to hold bins which can house all the little odds and ends…
A very ingenious way to create more space to contain clutter is having a headboard which is also a wall unit! This trick uses more of the vertical space and does not encroach on the precious floor area. You can store anything you want here or even display some artifacts. Use pretty storage boxes if you don’t want everyone to walk in on your stuff 🙂
Under the bed storage is another great idea to utilize limited legroom. If your bed comes with drawers, great! If not, don’t worry…using some sober, coordinated bins can rise to the occasion very well. Use lidded ones to keep dust at bay and this way, you can store all your bedspreads, woolens or summer clothes without stuffing your wardrobe.
The simple bedside table has potential too…if it’s like a simple shelf or cubby, you can place the night lamp on the top and line up some bins underneath, just like a multifunctional piece of furniture!
The same goes for a window seat or bench with some space below. Just a couple of matching chic bins or baskets will hide mess and be visually pleasing at the same time…
