Smart Concrete Storage Solutions
Ask just about any homeowner what they wish their house had more of, and the answer would be storage space. However, few people would think of concrete as being the perfect solution. That’s too bad because concrete has a number of qualities that make it a great alternative for storing your overflow, including everything from books and important documents to toiletries and wine bottles. Its thermal properties provide good temperature control, it resists mold and mildew, it’s weather resistant, and it can be custom molded and sized to accommodate all your storage needs. You can include built-in storage in concrete bathroom vanities, fireplace surrounds and concrete furniture, or you can take advantage of the decorative qualities of concrete and make storage units that double as artistic focal points. For ideas on using concrete to control the clutter around your home, see these five clever concrete storage solutions.
