Solving Storage Issues *

When it comes to storage, we really don’t have enough in the flat! This is mainly due to the fact I own so much stuff and had to fit it around what was already there. I knew I wanted some extra storage for the bathroom as we only had one little area in there dedicated to hiding away all my goodies, but when Rattan Direct asked me to review some of their items my ideas totally changed!

They have a lot of items that are perfect for outdoor storage but a couple of sets of drawers took my fancy as I needed these the most, and our outdoor space is limited due to being just a balcony that as mush as having space to store out wellies and camping gear out there would be the dream, it’s just not doable right now.

So the drawers I selected were both made from wicker to match in with the bathroom theme and colours…


This chest of 3 Drawer fits perfectly into our bathroom, and with having so many new drawers I’ve been able to rethink my storage! In this chest of drawers I now have my underwear; a drawer each for knickers, bras and socks! It makes my getting ready in the morning and after a shower a little easier.


It also means it frees up a drawer in our bedroom so I now have a drawer for gym kit and pyjama’s rather than mixing those in with my t-shirts. It’s made such a difference for knowing where everything is.


 Having this in the bathroom also gives me places to pop a few candles and my favourite little dish for my rings and watch when I shower.

We were also lucky enough to be sent a larger chest of 5 Drawers but with my terrible measuring skills, it was far too big for the bathroom!


So we’ve popped it in the second bedroom!

After moving my underwear into the bathroom I needed somewhere to store my tights, winter woollies and those odd bits and bobs you never have a home for.  I’m one of those people that keep the boxes for things they buy for ages so there’s a few of those in there and extra bathroom items I have purchased when they have been on offer. I can’t say no to a 2-for-1!

The best thing about this furniture is that it turned up fully made, I literally unboxed it, then unwrapped the protective layer and it was ready for use! Great when you’re useless at DIY, I mean I couldn’t even measure the drawers right!

The delivery was prompt, and they delivered the boxes into the bathroom for me to save me moving them around myself which was a bonus!

I’d highly recommend Rattan Direct for not only outdoor furniture, but for those extra storage items you need too.
