Consider including some of these storage ideas in your home this year to make it both more beautiful and more functional.
As you shop for storage solutions, keep the idea of multifunctional items in mind. There are many creative solutions that will provide storage space in addition to another function. Consider one of these in your home:
- An upholstered bench or ottoman to store blankets, throw pillows, or games
- Dining table with drawers that can store cloth napkins, extra utensil sets, or small tablescape decor
- Decorative baskets on styled shelves to provide texture while storing remotes or charging cords
Built-in or custom organizers are as beautiful as they are functional. In your kitchen and bathroom drawers, consider finding organizers that are designed to fit the exact dimensions of the drawer. This will make keeping your kitchen tools, spices, toiletries, first aid supplies, or anything else you keep in the drawers easy to find.
Maximize Nooks and Crannies
Most homes have unused space that is perfect for a creative storage solution. Blank spaces tend to be a bit of a decorative problem anyway, so tackle two problems at once by making these unique nooks and crannies into custom storage solutions.
For example, if you have a narrow space between your kitchen appliances and walls, consider adding a narrow shelf on wheels that perfectly fits the space and can store spices, cleaning supplies, or tea and coffee.
A new design trend that provides storage while beautifying your kitchen is the appliance garage. If you find that small kitchen appliances are becoming an eyesore or taking up valuable kitchen counter space, an appliance garage could be the perfect addition.
This creative storage solution provides a space to tuck your toaster, blender, and other countertop appliances behind a roll-down door (hence the name appliance garage; the door mimics your garage door in a miniature way that tucks up above for easy storage when not in use).
Countertops in bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms have a tendency to become cluttered. Even if the items taking up space are useful and practical, they can feel like clutter when they fill the space.
Look for ways to get as many things as possible off the counter for a cleaner aesthetic, by storing them in cabinets, baskets, drawers, and closets nearby. This may require some new habits to be formed, but the fresh look and function of the space will be worth all the effort.
