A lack of storage makes it difficult to keep your home clean, and the resulting clutter often causes unwanted stress and anxiety. Luckily, with a bit of creativity, it’s easy to add attractive storage options to even the smallest of spaces. The following ideas will help you get started:

3 Stylish Storage Hacks to Increase Space and Functionality

1. Start with Smart Furniture

Make the most of your space by investing in furniture that can multi-task. Look for pieces with built-in storage options, like bed frames with accent drawers. Choose stools or ottomans that open up, so you can store items inside. A hinged bench in your entryway or under a windowsill is both functional and stylish.

2. Optimize Unused Space

Vertical space is under-utilized in most homes. Take advantage of wall space above the areas you’re already using. Add floor-to-ceiling cabinets, stack your washer and dryer and install shelving above your sink and toilet, kitchen countertops and other open areas. Use custom shelving or cupboards to take advantage of narrow or awkward spaces.

3. Get Creative

Use your sense of style to create decorative spaces that double as storage areas. Consider framing your television with attractive cabinets and shelving. Ditch your bed’s headboard and build a custom one with storage cubbies and shelves. Once you tap into your creative side, you’ll see that the possibilities are virtually endless.
