Install floating storage to create the illusion of more floor space and hide an unattractive floor grate.
"This cabinet was the abandoned top of an old hutch that I installed in the entrance of my first house," says House & Home editor Suzanne Dimma. "It was a tiny old house, build in 1858, in Toronto's Annex neighbourhood that I gutted and reconfigured for one person. This shot was on the cover of our February/March 2000 issue. I've never had so much response to a space I worked on as I did when this house was featured."
