What a fantastic idea! The Spiral Wine Cellar is a fun and smart storage solution for your wine collection. It can hold up to 1600 bottles depending on the depth you choose, and can be installed in an already built home or in new construction. The cellar is constructed of solid concrete with a waterproof lining, it damp-proof and is highly resistant to temperature changes and vibrations. The cellar provides perfect storage conditions and proper ventalation. A trap door in the floor gives you access to the spiral stairs that wind down through the center, as the modular “shelves” hold all of your bottles along the perimeter. The trap door in the cellar in these images to the left work on a mechanical opening hinge. See their brochure online for more information.
With so many practical features for kitchens today, you could probably use half of your cabinets if they were incorporated with smart storage solutions like these. Blum has fantastic corner drawer modules and a U-shaped drawer that fits directly to the front and sides of your sink, and an easy to access pull-out for garbage and recyclables as well as cleaning products. Other great products are the space corners (so much better that lazy susans) with BLUMOTION guides, and lift systems for upper cabinets. Check out the Interactive video to see how it works.
If you like to store items away (like your seventy or so pairs of shoes) and find them quickly, I bet you would love to create a wall of these clear plastic bins. The front slides open and they will keep your Max Azaria collection from scuffing against one another.
Wow, ladies can I get an amen for this closet?! It’s actually the celebrity closet of Mariah Carey and all these shoes live here in her Manhattan Penthouse. Shoes are an investment, and this is like a Fort Knox treasure trove, why not have these lovelies on such a elaborate and wonderful display? Closet space is important, as well as how you use it! I believe we should all simplify, and I agree with throwing out or giving away items you do not use or wear in a year. Once you have done that, create a magic little color-coordinated haven for them. I really mean it- just think of how happy you will feel walking into a well lit, organized heaven of a closet in the morning!
Do you agree there should be a place for everything and everything in its place? Well if so you might be like me and organize your drawers just for the fun of it!

It is durable too, constructed of metal and aluminum finish, and ball bearing slides. For a drawer option, keep tie rolled and dust free with a clear tie caddy.
