Optimising storage is one of the most important things that can turn a house into a home. With a limited space, finding creative storage solutions is not always easy, though. So, here we would like to point out several ingenious suggestions that will help you to double your home storage capacity without cluttering your rooms. Here they are:
One of the best ways to optimise your storage is to go with storage units from floor to ceiling. Sure, it is not always possible to find them ready made, but you can always order custom furniture or even do it yourself — building your own storage cabinet is not so difficult as it may seem. High narrow designs are great, space efficient solutions.
Double furniture functionality
Another amazing idea is to look for furniture with double functionality — for example, a coffee table with hidden storage compartments, or a bed with drawers in the lower part of the body.
Wall hooks and rails are your best friends
Wall hooks instead of a coat rack are great for small hallways. Hooks and custom rails (like a solid, quality metal rod) can support plenty of objects in the kitchen, too. An extra rod in a wardrobe will serve as an additional hanging rail, significantly boosting your wardrobe storage capacity.
Under shelf baskets maximise your wardrobe storage
Speaking of wardrobes, you can also get a couple of under shelf baskets. These small and unobtrusive devices will serve as additional storage units without requiring much of your functional wardrobe space.
Shelves are great for awkward angles
Attic-like rooms and other awkward angles can also be utilised creatively. Filling the awkward area with shelves will offer you additional space for books, trinkets, or even dishes and utensils — depending on the room you are decorating at the moment.
Bags are sweet affordable organisers
Another way to optimise your storage and create a sweet and welcoming atmosphere practically in any room is to hang some colourful, funny bags on hooks and use them as storage units. Bags like these on a bathroom door can be used both as dirty and clean laundry baskets — normally, up to three compact bags can fit unobtrusively onto a door.
Smart furniture is the future of small interiors
And, finally, go for smart designs. Above, we have mentioned just a couple of furniture models with double functionality — however, the flow of designer thought is getting more and more creative these days and it is possible to find units that feature multiple functionality — beds with storage and integrated lights, bookshelves, etc.
Finally, if you would like to find some ready made furniture units rather then make them on your own, do not waste your time in the small stores — innovation and creativity are not so common there. While shopping with the big platforms, though, you can find quite a lot of useful and impressive items — often, designed with multiple functionality in mind. Obviously, the bigger the store is, the higher are the chances of finding something truly useful and impressive.
