10 Saving Space Storage Solutions
When living in a small space, you need to get creative with the types of storage organizers you use! It is important to take advantage of every area you have, to maximize the storage you have while keeping things in order. Here are a few of my favorite storage solutions that are easy to find and won’t break your budget!
1. Storage Cubes
These ClosetMaid Cubeicals are a lifesaver when it comes to hidden storage! I use them to contain toys in our living area or you could use them in an office to hide electronic cords and store book. You can choose a staple cubical and then pick from different patterns or colors to place in the cubbies. They are easy to pull out and grab what you need, plus they help contain what you don’t want to be seen.
2. Over-the-door Hooks
Take advantage of the unused space behind your doors by utilizing over-the-door hooks. You can place these in your bathrooms to hang towels or behind closet doors to hang hats and jackets. They do not take any extra assembly and are easy to find at many home furnishing stores for a low price. Check out this over-the-door hook with a wire basket that you can use in the bathroom to save some extra counter space by the sink.
3. Hanging Shelves
If your closet tends to be cluttered with scarfs on hangers or you just don’t have enough space in your dresser, you can create shelves in your closet by using a hanging shelf organizer. It simply hangs on your existing closet rod. With minimal assembly required, you now have shelves for folded sweaters, shoes, or seasonal accessories. No need for a weekend warrior project to build more shelves into your closet with this!
4. Decorative Baskets
Skip the boring plastic storage and choose a stylish decorative basket. They come in various shapes and sizes! Use them to store extra throws and pillows in the living area. Or you can organize and display your hand towels in your bathroom. Depending on the style of your decor there are tons of decorative baskets for you to choose from. Everything for wire, woven rattan, and jute whatever you choose you’re sure to impress guests!
5. Ottoman Storage
Any type of storage that doubles as extra seating is a win in my book! A small storage ottoman can help conceal footwear near your entryway while doubling as a seat to put them on. Find a large ottoman to go with your couch that has hidden storage to store extra blankets and throw pillows.
6. Under Bed Storage
Did you know there were specially made storage bins designed to fit snugly under your bed? Store linens and bed sheets and tuck them away. You can also find under bed storage made just for shoes. It’s a lot more organized than cramming everything under the bed and it looks better too!
7. Sticky Hooks
Save floor space by using sticky hooks. These can be used anywhere in your home to hang items such as hand towels, aprons, or jewelry. They are reusable and easy to use. Or take them to the kitchen and save some valuable cabinet space by using sticky hooks to hang tin foil and cling wrap.
8. Cabinet Door Organizer
Did you think the hanging hooks were cool? Well, check out this over the door cabinet organizer. Customize the storage behind your door with an easy to build organizer. These are perfect for pantry and bathroom doors to house extra food containers or cleaning supplies!
9. Storage Cart
A rolling storage cart can help contain items such as cleaning or craft supplies. It makes it easy to transport around your home! Plus you can use them in your bathroom as a makeshift vanity if your sink doesn’t have counter space or to house makeup in a chic organized manner.
10. Floating Shelves
Avoid bulky shelves that take up floor space and use floating shelves to house and display your items. I like the sleek look of floating shelves and use them for displaying our favorite books!
