The chaos of a mess wardrobe can be solved in just an afternoon with a good plan and some elfa? storage solutions!
Wardrobes can quickly turn into nightmares without time and consideration. In this elfa? makeover, we started with a plan, establishing zones where everything needed for daily life would be in reach, while allocating higher shelves to less frequently used items.
Before building your system, consider what needs to be stored and weed out any items you never wear – those acid wash T-shirts for example! It’s also time to say goodbye and good riddance to floor filing – that is, dumping things on the floor in the hope you’ll tidy them one day. In our experience, this rarely works. Continue reading →

A Beautifully folded, fresh linen stored in neat stacks might be the ideal for a linen cupboard, but without good organisation, a simple search for a matching pillowcase can turn the whole cupboard in to a chaotic mess.
Most of us have several different sheet sets that never seem to stay together; we also tend to use the towels on top over and over while those below stay fresh, new and unused. Getting these items organised isn’t just about maximising space – it’s about saving time and reducing stress.
To get started on this makeover, we began transforming the deep-set shelves by fitting elfa? Easy Gliders and elfa? baskets on each shelf, creating instant drawers. To better utilise the remaining shelves, Space Bag Cubes and Totes were used to reduce the bulk of doonas, blankets and pillows. These were then moved to the top shelf to stay fresh and ready for the change of season. A DampRid tub was placed on the shelf to keep moisture away from the stored items. Continue reading →
Around the Howards Group Office of late the topic of Mother’s Day has been creeping in to conversations and it seems every family have their own little traditions. Breakfast in bed, brunch and lunch were spoken about but a common theme appeared; all involved sharing the day with loved ones.
If you stop to think about the role a mother plays in a family, it is an important one. She is the ultimate multitasker, a superhero. Her role includes a multitude of jobs. She becomes a chef, a cleaner, a taxi driver, a carer and a friend.
Thankfully there is a day set aside to celebrate that special lady in your family. It is a time to spoil Mum and show her how much she is loved and appreciated. Continue reading →
