When you lead a busy life, it’s easy to let tidiness slide. If your home is looking a little too ‘lived in’ you may need a helping hand in the shape of an intelligent storage solution. Having a clutter-free living space gives your home a sense of calm making it easier to relax and unwind. Rooms with unusual or quirky layouts or sloping ceilings will benefit from bespoke storage. Stand-alone furniture can often take up additional floor and wall space, making your room look and feel smaller or more cramped; a bespoke solution will work with the dimensions of your room to maximise every inch of space. Here are a few points to help you get started.
Dining Room and Library
1. How do you use your room?
Is your lounge a place where the family gathers to relax and watch TV? Or, is it a more formal room that you only use when you entertain guests? The way you use your room will dictate the kind of storage you need – after all, you still want everything that you use to be close to hand.

2. Be honest, do you really need it?
We all have items that we don’t need but can’t part with. However, we also have drawers full of ‘stuff’ such as old magazines and paperwork that can simply be thrown away. Spend time each month going through your cupboards and either ‘rehome’ or get rid of things you don’t need anymore. To make it easier, put your possessions into three categories: items to keep, to give away and items to throw away.

3. Make your nooks and crannies work for you
Specialist furniture designers see opportunities where others can’t. ‘Dead’ zones such as quirky alcoves or under-stair spaces can be transformed into useful places, with made-to-measure shelves or cabinets in a style and finish that complements your personal taste. By making the most of the storage opportunities in features like these, you can make your room look and feel more spacious.
4. Multifunctional, clutter-free spaces
If different family members use the room for various activities, you can create dedicated zones such as a reading area with bookshelves and a comfy armchair, or a study that can be hidden away when it’s time to relax.
5. Create an impression of space
With the correct storage, made exclusively for your individual needs, you will feel instantly in control. Display shelves can showcase your most prized possessions, drawers and cabinets can discreetly contain the items you need every day but don’t want to have on show. Bookshelves create a space for your favourite reads, and we can even create efficient storage that is bespoke to you and your hobbies. We can identify the best places for the furniture to help you to make the most of your room.
6. Clever solutions
Peninsula units are perfect for larger living areas. They can create subtle segregation and are ideal places to display artwork and photographs. If you want a home cinema solution, think about mounting the TV on the wall with the wires discreetly stored away behind built-in furniture. Home cinema furniture can also hide wiring and store other technology that you don’t want on show. We can help you to plan your storage around future technology or growth, so even in years to come, you can enjoy a clutter-free space.

From the moment the brochure was delivered, I was optimistic that we were buying quality. I wasn’t disappointed. All contact made was courteous, polite and clear, with phone calls confirmed by email. In short, we’re really thrilled with our library and it was effortless from start to finish.
Alison Cole, Swinton
Our new staircase looks fantastic. We’ve had lots of compliments and it has transformed our hallway. The whole experience was great from beginning to end, from discussing our requirements to the finished article.
Mr & Mrs Begbie, Hampshire
From the initial contact with the company to the completion and installation everything was utterly professional; we have no hesitation in recommending the company to anybody. We are so pleased, that Neville Johnson is returning to install a new staircase!
Mr and Mrs Thorpe, Radcliffe
From our initial enquiry to the completion of our staircase, we have found all the members of the team at Neville Johnson to be very helpful, courteous and professional in all our dealings. The staircase has transformed our living space. We have been very impressed with this company from start to finish and would not hesitate to recommend them.
Pauline Treston, Northumberland
From contacting the company to the point where the cupboards were fitted I was impressed by the whole process. The initial salesperson that visited was knowledgeable and helpful. I would certainly use Neville Johnson again and highly recommend this company.
Mrs S. D, Lincolnshire
From the initial meeting with the senior designer to discuss our needs, to the surveyor and then the installer, we were extremely delighted with the end result. The installation process went without any problems. All the staff were very professional and we would recommend Neville Johnson without hesitation.
Rosalind Tunnicliffe, Solihull
A real easy process, I would really recommend Neville Johnson to anyone. From the first phone call through to a very skilled fitter (who had to go above and beyond with our old house not having one straight line in it) it was all so easy. We couldn’t be happier that we chose to use Neville Johnson.
Richard Smith, Surrey
The room is transformed and has been hugely admired by family and friends. I was pleasantly surprised by the attentive and courteous client care – everything went according to plan and nothing seemed too much trouble. They were in regular contact before and after the installation. I would highly recommend Neville Johnson to anyone wanting to transform a room.
Cherry Murdoch, London
From the outset of our contract with Neville Johnson, we were supported with design choices, given expert advice and all deadlines were met. Everyone was courteous, knowledgeable and friendly. The craftsmanship is superb; our staircase is now an outstanding feature of our open plan lounge.
Judith Scorer, Stockport
I cannot recommend this company enough. From first contact we received very high quality service. We were informed as to everything that was going on, which was backed up by the necessary paperwork, plans and phone calls. The fitter was competent and the work he did we can’t fault.
