Save Your Precious Floor Space: Alias Multihook

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Alias Multihook from Chiasso

When you have a small room, you’d be amazed at how much you begin to appreciate storage that is off the floor. We pared down our belonging quite a bit when we were moving to Tennessee. We brought only the everyday necessities. Still, when two adults are living in a room that’s approximately 9′ x 10′, you learn to appreciate hooks, shelves and any other contraption that will get stuff up off the floor. I love the streamlined look of this Alias Multihook from Chiasso.

It has room for 4 articles, or more if you hang more than one item on each hook. This would be particularly handy for us right now during the winter when we have coats and jackets that take up a lot of room in our small wardrobes. I also need a place to hang my awesome, eco-friendly Matt & Nat purse. The hooks we are currently using aren’t very sturdy, so heavy coats put a strain on their holding power. This hooks looks a lot more solid, and it is made of bamboo for the eco mama in me. It doesn’t match the color of the rest of the wood in our room exactly, but it is pretty close.

And I love the fact that the hooks fold away, so when it is not in use, the rack will simply look like a piece of art on the wall. It’s pretty affordable, so I think this one might be coming home to mama in the near future.

Why It’s Green:

  • Made of bamboo

Price: $32 (aff)

    Oh, I like this. You can never have too many hooks around the house!

    Wow! I need one of those! Very cool. Hey, I wanted to tell you thanks for your comments on my blog. I have been trying to design it myself and it’s just been complete trial and error. I know it still looks….what’s the word, I guess unprofessional for lack of a better word, but it’s been fun to mess around with it and figure out what works. I made some changes based a lot on your comments so thanks again for your input! I’ve been a subscriber to your blog for a while (which looks very nice and professional of course) Please come back and visit sometime.

    I feel like you do, I love extra storage and hooks. When you have a big family (or even a small one) you have to get creative and find ways to stow and hang items without looking tacky. This set of hooks is beautiful and eco-friendly. I love them.

    I also saw Sharla’s comment about starting up her own blog. I am there with you. Everyone keeps telling me how easy it is, yet somehow, I am having so much trouble. I wanted 3 columns but couldn’t figure that out, I try sending my blog, in email to people, and they open to a blank page. If you have any tips, I’d love to hear them. Have a great day!

    @Sharla No problem at all. I’m just thankful that my comments were constructive 🙂 The changes you made so far are great. The text is a lot more legible, and the background pattern complements it well. I’m about to start fiddling with the design here too. Nothing drastic, but I’m getting bored with this design, so time to go back to the drawing board 🙂

    @Sarah It is definitely easier for some people than it is for others. I personally have never worked with Blogger, so I can’t offer you any specific tips, but there are a couple of things to consider when you’re designing your blog. First is readbility. Patterned or colored backgrounds on your content area almost always make it harder to read. Second is clutter. It can be tempting to add every sidebar widget your can find to your sidebar, but they can tend to make your blog look jumbled. I’m lucky enough to be my own graphic designer, but I obsess over my design too. 🙂 Hope that was helpful!

    Congrats on the move Jennae! Glad you are settling in nicely 🙂

    Those are some nice hooks. Very non-traditional. Love a good mix up of design appeal.

    Thanks as always for the great share! Now, when do we get to see pics of your new interiors? 🙂 heehee.
