We all like our home to look nice and tidy all the time but the problem is we often have a lot of larger things to fit into not-so-large spaces. Or perhaps you are on the other end of the scale, with too many smaller possessions that are cluttering up your living space? Some belongings are really hard to find a suitable storage space for, I know!
The feeling when you’ve run out of drawer or wardrobe space is such a frustrating one, so I think having a clever storage solution is really important for any home. These don’t have to be expensive to make, after all, the best and most effective solutions are ones which are homemade – because you can tailor your design to your own needs. A few spare pieces of wood, a sharp blade and a good, clearly thought out idea are all you really need to get started.
Re-arranging your interior with the help of an extra storage solution gives you so much more space to play with; small rooms need not to be a headache any longer. We found lots of fab examples on Pinterest which, if you’re struggling for some much-needed extra bedroom space, will really help to turn your room into a well-organised, spotless and ship-shape haven.
One of the most efficient storage solutions involves making proper use of your staircase (if you have one!) The room underneath your stairs are what some call ‘dead space’ – so make sure you fully take advantage and install some pull-out drawers. Shoes, coats, bags, hats and gloves would all fit nicely in here; it’s a real storage winner! A similar sort of idea would work just fine with platform beds which could also accommodate additional drawers. Another intelligent use of your vacant ‘dead space’.
Think welcoming? Think storage? Then think about baskets. Baskets are nice little additions which can be dotted around the home to keep a range of odd bits-and-bobs nicely tucked away. In fact, they could be ideal for parents wanting a more stylised accessory for their living room to neatly house your little one’s toys.
