When we moved into our new house I dedicated one room of the house for the girls. A space they could call their own, their play room. I wanted to ensure that they could access all their toys easily and safely. A place for everything. I knew that whatever I used had to withstand a lot of play. It had to be wipe clean and easy to keep clean. The girls had to be able to use it and I wanted it to grow with them. I was asking a lot, not only did it have to live up to all this it needed to be affordable.
I hunted high and low. I thought about using plastic storage boxes, but decided I wanted something more. I stumbled upon the Northcote Storage, furniture range from Great Little Trading Co. and I knew immediately this was what I had been looking for.
The award winning Northcote storage comes in crisp bright white or cloud grey, I chose crisp white. What I love about Northcote storage is that you design it. You choose exactly what you need and should your needs change you can go back and buy more, it's modular and you choose how big or small you want it to be.
After measuring the space, I wanted two base units and a skinny base draw. I decided what I needed in-between and how tall I wanted it to go. I designed my perfect storage solution. I have a space for everything, I have added bright storage boxes and the girls can clearly see where everything belongs and can get to it easy. The chalkboard doors are also loads of fun and the girls love drawing on them. What's more is the whole things is easy to keep clean!
Northcote storage comes flat packed, but I found it very simple and quick to put together with no help needed. Each individual piece is easy to move but they do become heavy when stacked together, as you would expect. They slot into place via a clever groove system giving them extra stability.
I purchased my Northcote storage over a year ago. It still looks like new. I have never had any issues with it, there are no cracks, chips or dents and its easy to keep clean. The girls still use it every day to access their toys and books, I could not have made a better choice.
I have not received any product or monetary compensation for writing this piece, I am simply impressed with this and wanted to share.
