Primaries, pastels or neutrals: which storage cubes are for you?
We think it's universally agreed that when it comes to family homes, one thing is sure, you can never, ever, ever have enough storage. Ever. No sooner do you think that you have the toy situation under control, up comes another birthday. Or Christmas. Or a random visit from well-meaning grandparents. Grandparents who love nothing more than spoiling their grandchildren with, yes, you guessed it, more toys.
GLTC has an incredible array of ingenious toy storage solutions. There's an option for every room, big or small. From cute shelves to classic toy boxes and from small storage benches to more substantial modular storage, you're spoilt for choice.
But today we're going to focus on sweet and simple storage cubes. Why? Well, not only are they incredibly handy to pop in each room for a quick tidy up, they're also a nice way of hiding toys away while also complementing your interiors style or decor.
Let's take a closer look at some of the options.
Primary coloured canvas cubes and storage baskets are obviously a brilliant choice for colour lovers. They're perfect for injecting a a bit of fun in to a playroom as well as being ideal for helping children to sort and categorise. For example, Lego goes in the green basket, marbles in the blue, and crayons and colouring books in the yellow.
However, we also think they work well in a white-walled family room that has to double up as a play space. Even if you prefer your decor on the neutral side, a small splash of colour in the corner of the room announces to a child that they're also welcome to sit and play in the room and that they have a special place of their own to store their things.
For a softer option, how about our pastel storage cubes? They're a little bit neutral but still offer a touch of colour. Mix shell pink woven cubes with confetti spot canvas ones for a child-friendly contrast or pink canvas cubes with the incredibly tactile pink and ivory rope storage baskets from a more grown up pastel combination.
Neutrals are loved by everyone. Our neutral range of rope storage baskets work so well in colourful rooms as they don't detract from bolder decor choices, and yet their soft but sturdy material makes them a great choice for calmer surroundings as they offer much needed texture. The woven handles make them super easy for children to grab and once again, you could mix and match your neutrals so that each colour holds specific toys or books.
The baskets are perfect for popping in the corner of rooms or alongside sofas but, if you have space, check out the Abbeville cube storage range - it comes in three classic colours and a plethora of different sizes and designs.
So, primaries, pastels or neutrals? Which would you choose? Or would you throw caution to the wind and opt for a mixture of all three?
