The living room can become the place where all miscellaneous items end up. But not any more. Give everything in your home a place. If you have stairs, installing shelving under them means no wasted space. After all, it’s not like you’re keeping a young wizard down there.
The living room is full of ottomans, coffee tables, lounges and tv cabinets. Each of these objects have an important role, but there’s no reason they can’t double up and store your belongings. If you have children, keeping some of their toys in an ottoman keeps them from getting underfoot. Or perhaps you like blankets when you lounge, so a couch that has storage could be great for you.
Most importantly, use every inch of wall space you have. Mounting your belongings, such as your bikes, can clear up a lot of floor space for more important things. Like you and your family.

Sometimes the best way to organise your belongings is to give them their own space. A walk-in closet may actually be a great space saving option for your lifestyle if you have a lot of clothes. The key is keeping it organised.
Organise your clothes by season, and store your out-of-season clothes elsewhere. Above head or under the bed boxes can keep your winter coats safe while you enjoy the warmer months.
Just like in your loungeroom, walls are often overlooked for storage. Try wall mounted shoe racks or purse hooks. Consider a mirror on the back of the door to free up some other space, while also giving you a large floor length mirror.
There’s always a lot of products in the bathroom, and if you don’t have enough storage the products can quickly take over. Consider magnets. A big trend at the moment, magnets can be used to store anything metallic on a large strip attached to a surface right by your mirror. Bobby pins will no longer be strewn around the room.
Just like using the space behind a door, don’t forget the space above the toilet. Try building shelves or attaching hooks and baskets. With this, you can keep necessities like toilet paper nearby without them becoming an eyesore.
Drawer dividers for makeup or brushes can help you keep everything stored and keep you on time in the morning.

Thinking vertically in the kitchen can save you more space yet. But instead of mounting things on walls, try the backs of cabinet doors. An underused space, the back of a cabinet can have hooks to hold anything that has a loop, saving valuable cupboard space.
If you’re open to more structural storage ideas, try built in storage. Permanent wine racks can save bench and cupboard space while keeping the things you use within easy reach.
Try these awesome storage ideas throughout your home. Mix and match them too. (Maybe you want magnets in your bedroom.)
