Suzanne Dimma's Old Hallway

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."
