CUBE STORAGE - KEEPING HOMES CLUTTER-FREE SINCE 2012
Launched in 2012, the Abbeville Cube Storage Range has been keeping homes across the UK tidy for close to eight years now. It started with a simple Shelf Unit and the Nine Cube Unit in white and then new shapes, sizes and colours - grey and stone - were introduced. To this day, our cube storage continues to be incredibly popular which goes to show that well designed, great quality storage never goes out of style. And we've got plans for even more, too!
FOR EVERY ROOM, SPACE & CORNER
GLTC's motto has long been, 'We're great when they're little', but it's become quite clear that customers are using our clever cube storage for more than just the toddler years. It has become a staple in so many family homes and not just in children's bedrooms and playrooms either - although, it's pretty perfect for both.
We've spotted benches and long shelves in hallways; tall, narrow units in kitchens and bathrooms; and nine and twelve cube units in so many living rooms. The chic and simple design works so well in all manner of homes and with all décor choices. It's not storage that will need replacing when it's time to redecorate ... or when children change their minds about which bedroom theme they want, something that can happen far too frequently.
CUSTOMISE YOUR CUBE STORAGE
One of the fun parts of buying one of our cube storage units is not just knowing that you're soon going to have a tidier home but choosing which of our gorgeous storage baskets and cubes to adorn it with. Of course, you can display favourite toys and books on open shelves but having a basket or two to put smaller toys in, or craft materials, or even mail, makes rooms look neat and tidy and keeps those little items from being dispersed across the house.
Every season, we bring out new designs. Some with fun characters that we know children will adore, others with more sophisticated tones that suit grown up spaces, and a couple that bridge the gap like the White Stardust design which appeals to both young and old(er) alike.
And the great thing about these storage cubes is that they're easy to mix, match and change if you want to move your cube storage unit to a different room.
TIPS FOR A CLUTTER-FREE HOME
With a lot of children at home 24/7 at the moment rather than in school, it can feel like there's never a tidy moment in your house. It can be lovely if your the type of person who thrives on having a busy, bustling environment but if a bit of organisation keeps you calm, here are our top three tips for controlling the clutter:
REGULAR SORT OUTS - Keep an eye on what your child is playing with - or no longer playing with, to be more precise. Look out for toys that haven't been touched for a while, books that have been relegated to the back of the bookshelf, or colouring books and notepads that have been filled but don't quite make the 'memory box' cut. Should they be sold, recycled, donated or binned? And once you've decided, do it. Hanging on to them will only lead to them joining the shelves once more and meeting the same fate a couple of months down the line.
A PLACE FOR EVERYTHING - If there's no designated place for something, we can't expect children to know where to put it. Dedicate a shelf, carry caddy, cupboard or basket to specific items. For example, all cars in a grey basket, all building blocks in the toy box, or all colouring pencils in the pink desk tidy on top of the bookcase. Much like adults leave pens everywhere around the house, children will do the same with their toys if there's no identifiable place to put them.
MAKE TIDYING UP PART OF THE ACTIVITY - It's a tricky one to enforce if you're trying to work or do things around the house and are relying on your little ones to entertain themselves for a while. Turn your back for five minutes and there's a chance that every single toy will be out on the floor when you look again. But it's worth persevering with the mantra, 'Let's put that away before we get something else out.' It should stop the mad rush to tidy up at the end of the day when everyone is tired and more likely to throw random things in a storage basket as opposed to putting things away carefully where they belong.
We hope these tips help in some way. Don't forget, we make toy storage in all shapes and sizes. Why not take a look?
