5 home storage solutions

Sometimes it is difficult to have enough space to store those important items like blankets, bottles, electronic devices, magazines, etc. These are things that are not used every day but nonetheless should be within reach, although the relatively small-sized cubby halls make this task enormously difficult.
Everything must be arranged in such a way that large shelves or furniture that cover the entire wall of the room are incorporated to satisfy this need, but in a small space it is impossible to store them. That is why it is so important to look for home storage solutions that serve this purpose.

Baldas, a practical solution

The most convenient method is to use shelves, and if they can be the same colour as the wall then better. The storage space can also be very large, but the difference lies in the visual effect. The shelves just take up space and can be filled with things. In addition, they blend with the wall and everything remains harmonious and in perfect balance.

Elongated furniture, a very profitable resource

If just below the shelves low-lying and wide furniture is placed, the space will be completely available and free from too many furniture items that are all in perfect order. This type of furniture is considered as highly effective home storage solutions. It should be the same colour as the shelves and the best thing about these elongated pieces is that they not have legs so they won't give the room a cluttered image as they also stand alone. With this option you not only will be able to store things inside, but you can also place your items on top of appliances or decorative objects, from plants to lamps or music equipment.

Chest drawers, trendy storage solutions

There are furniture items that are made specifically for having their own storage space. Chest drawers or trunks are great for organising and storing bulky items such as cushions or blankets. In addition, they can be used as a side table or as a coffee table.

Boxes, suitcases or decorative baskets to organise everything

To take advantage of available spaces you can place different decoration objects, so that everything is well organised and in order. Decorative boxes, baskets and suitcases will help fill those empty corners or the idle spaces that remain empty under some furniture. That way, you can store all those things that should not be visible and have them on hand to use whenever necessary. 

The corners also have great potential

Speaking of corners, most of the time they are forgotten when such spaces can also be full. These are accessible areas that you can take a lot of advantage of. There are endless possibilities, everything depends on the imagination of each person. In a corner next to a window, a level composition can be formed with multiple old wooden boxes containing different ornaments and utensils. Organisation and decoration in its purest state.
