Throughout 2020, you probably collected a lot of things from your late-night online shopping trips. Choose closed storage solutions such as floor-to-ceiling cabinets instead of open shelving. 

While open shelving might be all the rage before, it’s currently an impractical storage solution due to its high maintenance. You need to put in extra time and effort to consistently ensure the items on these shelves are looking neat so it won’t be a sight for sore eyes.

On the other hand, closed storage solutions is a cleverly disguised storage solution that allows your home to look neat and tidy whenever you need to attend a last-minute video conference.
