Are you looking for some clever storage solutions to suit any space? Well, this sounds like the perfect read for you. Storage is a necessity for a clutter-free life and can make all the difference to the overall look of an area. Hiding things away out of sight means your room will look far more put-together and free-up as much surrounding floor space as possible.
Whether you use a blanket box in a living room, hallway, study, at the end of a bed, in the kids’ room, or even as an extra seat in a dining room; this really is one of the most versatile and multifunctional pieces of storage you could own. The slim nature of the design means it will snuggly fit into most space, and the padded top makes it the perfect extra seat. Take a look at this beautiful padded-top blanket box at Arlo & Jacob. Available in over 120 fabrics it would make the perfect storage solution to almost anywhere in your home.
Every bedroom needs a bed as a necessity, but often a double bed can leave you without much surrounding floor space. Whether your space is small or not, a storage bed is a genius solution that works for all bedrooms. Store away seasonal clothing, spare bed linen and chunky knits while they’re not in use to free up as much space as possible and keep your bedroom a neat and tidy haven. This is an affordable example from Happy Beds.
For almost everyone in every home, the hallway is one of the busiest, high-traffic areas that often contains the most clutter. If this sounds like you, then a well-placed storage unit in your hall could be a real lifesaver. Whether it’s to hang coats, tidy away shoes, gym bags and umbrellas or any other outerwear, then a smart hallway storage unit like this one is always a sensible idea.
There’s no excuse for having anything lying on the floor (even with a lack of wall space) with these genius shelves above doorframe hacks found on Pinterest. Use this extra, usually unused space, to store books, smart storage boxes or even show off some green plants. It’s a versatile area that’s ideal for anything that you don’t need regular easy access to. For particularly small apartments, it’s a brilliant idea for storing winter clothing, shoes and handbags out of sight (and off the floor!). Get creative with your shelves above door frames.
One final trick that may sound incredibly simple – but trust us is very effective, putting all your dry cupboard food like pasta, flour, sugar, tea, coffee, and lentils etc. into matching glass storage jars. That way, if they’re on display on your shelves, not only can you always see what’s in them, but they also look seriously neat and tidy without the mismatched packaging and odd boxes. It’s a nifty storage hack that anyone can do in their kitchen or pantry that will have fantastic results. What’s more, it’s a trick you can take into the bathroom. Decant any liquids, soaps, cotton buds etc. into clear jars (use plastic if you’re worried about glass in the bathroom) and enjoy a clutter–free space.
