Utilizing the Wall for Game Storage and More

Utilizing the Wall for Game Storage and More

Our gamer's lust has waned to a degree in which we purchase no more than 3 titles a year, so our collection is pretty modest in size. For casual gamers such as ourselves (oh, how it hurts to downgrade ourselves to that label), we thought this integrated game box wall storage feature designed into the wall was a clever way to keep copies of Red Dead Redemption and Call of Duty boxes off the ground, but within easy reach. There are plenty more cool hidden features of this tiny 200 square foot space...

Looks like there's about enough space for 8 games in the slot-style wall storage feature, as designed by Polish architect Jakub Szczesny of Centrala, so this solution would obviously best suited for those with a minimal amount of media (or only your best or favourite titles could be n display). But the coolest feature inside the Szczesny's Tamka Apartment is really the hidden kitchen, situated behind a flip-down wall which converts into a dual side table, perfect for eating, work and play. One side, someone could be enjoying breakfast, while on the other, another could be harvesting gold...ahem...answering emails and getting work done! And at the end of the day, fold it all up away!

Although most of us won't be able to cut a hole into our walls to mimic this great space saving idea, you can purchase something like the Pull Down Wall Desk, which only offers one side of use, but shares the same hideaway feature as the Tamka wall, perfect for small space use and clutter busting. We've been looking at something like this $29.99 IKEA wall mounted table for both kitchen and laptop-while-cooking duty; if wall mounting isn't an option, you can always purchase a free-standing model.
