Creative Storage Ideas

Let’s face it – we all could use a little more storage space. Here are few fun ideas to satisfy our needs.

Multipurpose Coffee Table: If you have a single surfaced coffee table, you could double your space by replacing it with one that has compartments, or one with a second shelf which you can add matching baskets to for more storage.

Adding shelves to your walls gives you a place to display pretty vases, photo frames, knick-knacks, and such without taking up more tabletop space. If you have closets with high ceilings, you can also add some shelves in there for more out of sight storage.

Shelving

Wicker baskets can help with storage issues in every room and always look great! A large basket in the living room or bedroom can store extra blankets and pillows. Small ones in the bathroom can hold make-up, hair, and body products.

Shoe Organizers can hold so much more than just shoes. Hang one on the back of a door and fill it cleaning products, arts and crafts, stuffed animals, toiletries, hair products, gardening tools… there is nearly no limit!
