I haven’t’ seen many articles or images of inside cupboard so this one’s a first for me. Australian Woman, June 14, 1954, has two whole pages to sorting out cupboard space. It’s not a bad read and we have not improved on the advice much since.
I am just adding the last few bits to Miss Little’s new cupboard space and wanted some vintage ideas. Some I really liked, like putting a hanging rail at the child’s height.
I can’t do many of these but they were great for ideas. My home is brick so I have to work within the space I’ve got and that not a lot.
I have got quotes for shelves in Miss Little’s room and, for want of a better word, our linen cupboard. The last will be a later project once all the children’s rooms are done. Our shelves will be wire to allow airflow, this is to reduce moisture build up, a big issue in the tropics. I am mostly looking at Elfa from Howards Storage World as some of the wardrobes are not normal sizes and I want something that will grow with the children.
While I wasn't sure wether to blog about wardrobes and cupboard space as it really dosen't sound that retro, however it is very homemaker stuff. And as long as we need to store stuff we will need to make space for it. So I thought 'Why not!", I can't be the only person wondering about the dark space that stole the missing shoe. All tho I do believe people of the 1950's would have had a lot less to store they most people today.
