Space in London is hard to come by. We all seem to be living on top of one another and finding room within the small London flat is a challenge. As history has shown us, finding space as a London dweller has and continues to be a challenge. So today, Nordic Style is here to suggest some simple pieces that may make the London life just a bit easier and more organized.
First, here are a few quick and interesting background facts I came across while looking into London life from the past:
* Around 1880 the minimum room height was 8 feet/2.4 m and each flat had one lavatory, drainage, and window.
* The 1960’s brought to light the need for more space and began to develop, for the first time, space standards which were derived from how residents actually used their homes and different rooms within their flat. This report also highlighted the need for storage space and heating.
* In London today there is still a growing demand for space, regardless of household size. Research shows all groups of home buyers have expressed criticism regarding London's lack of space and storage. Additionally, modern day London dwellers have expressed a need for environmental sustainability and resource efficiency (Taken from: July 2010: Summary of evidence on proposed housing design standards).
As space and storage in London continues to be a challenge here are our suggestions to make use of your flat, better:
Our Window Effect Mirror is great for creating the illusion of an extra window and can create a more spacious feel to any room. We often have special reduced prices on this item so it’s always worth calling the shop to see if there is an offer on.
We recently started carrying our own range of Divans which are perfect for under bed storage. The divan can have up to four drawers.
Our Open Top Dressers are great for table linen, cutlery, and crockery.
We currently have a special offer on a 2 Door Glass Top Dresser for only £898.50 (70% off!). There’s only one, so be sure to call the shop at 020-7351-1755 if you would like more information on this offer.
