Not all of us can afford a huge house, so sometimes we have to look for creative ways to organize our stuff while leaving as much room for ourselves as it is possible. Here are top ten ideas you might want to consider if you have small rooms and plenty of personal possessions:
- 1. Fitted furniture
Fitted furniture is always the best solution for any limited-size room – whether it is a bathroom, a bedroom, or a hallway. Whatever niches, or anything that even resembles niches, you have – do not hesitate to utilize them.
- 2. Furniture with built-in storage
Plus, plenty of furniture manufacturers these days make a wide range of products with built-in storage. Drawers as part of the bed body, armchairs featuring built-in book shelves, coffee tables with cabinets or drawers as a base – the list can be prolonged for pages.
- 3. Furniture with hidden storage
A lot of furniture models have exposed storage units, but some of them hide their extra compartments. Coffee table with hidden drawers below the surface is one of the obvious examples.
- 4. High stands separating the rooms
Another creative solution to optimize your room space would be to equip it with a high, from floor to ceiling, stand. It may feature shelves, drawers, or cabinets – sometimes even all of the above. It does not necessarily have to separate the rooms, but using it as a wall and as a stand simultaneously will save you plenty of space.
- 5. Shelves under the ceiling
If you have high ceilings and / or protruding beams, you can create extra storage space right above you head. To get access to your things, you can come up with a small, box-like staircase. A hint: the stairs may at the same time be drawers.
- 6. Drawers with racks
Drawers with vertical or horizontal racks are common for kitchen furniture. Yet, it does not mean that the same approach cannot be used in the living room or in the bedroom. A computer desk, for example, will definitely benefit from the arrangement.
- 7. Drawers and cabinets in the staircase
Have a second floor in your house? Do not waste all of your available space for a simple staircase – turn it into yet another storage unit instead. Sure, turning each stair into a fully functioning drawer will take some time, but the result is totally worth it.
- 8. Wall boxes
Wall boxes may not seem like the most storage-efficient solutions in the world, but they give you a chance to organize some of your smaller items – like keys , chargers, etc. Plus, stylish boxes look like cute accessories on the walls.
- 9. Wall fixed books
Books occupy a lot of space, but if you are not going to keep an entire Bodleian Library at home, you can fix some of your books to the walls (simply put them onto special hooks). On the one hand, it looks like a stylish decoration element. On the other one, the arrangement creates an extra shelf!
- 10. Corner furniture
And, of course, do not forget that any corner furniture – whether a TV stand or a wardrobe, is a space efficient solution that does not require a lot of room and has unbelievable storage capacity!
