Pound for pound, shelves make the biggest difference in your storage. You can pick them up cheaply from high-street furniture shops. Shelves are well-suited for living in flats because they are adjustable, and you can take them apart when you move. You can either get wall mounted ones, or a cabinet variety, which can be installed in small space such as the back of a closet.
You can keep a lot more than clothes in your drawers. One way of getting storage for cheap is to buy old dressers from second hand shops, and paint them or cover them in some nice paper or fabric.
3. Under the bed
One old school method is to raise your bed on blocks and add a long bed skirt, which means you have extra hidden storage under your bed. This space can then be used for storing those abundant containers! If this seems a bit studenty, why not invest in a divan bed with drawers from Bedstar?
Hooks on walls is a quick and easy way to store clothes. They don’t have to be fancy, even a simple hook will suffice if you aren’t bothered about looks. Have them at different heights so the kids can reach them.
5. Hanging bags
A quick method of storage is hanging canvas bags from hooks on walls. this can be an easy way to keep spaces like offices and bedrooms tidy. You can even get many custom ‘storage solutions’; compartmented bags which aren’t actually too expensive.
6. Behind the door
The door is an easy thing to keep stuff on as it is often out of sight, although not everyone likes this as it can restrict entry if the things are heavy or bulky.
7. Maximum closet use
Wardrobes and closets often have unused space in them. Add more shelves or another rail to get maximum storage out of your wardrobe.
