Creative Storage Options for Small Spaces

Convert an Accent Wall

Add shelves, hooks, and other storage units to take advantage of your unused wall space. Using an accent wall to store books, decor, and other items you want to showcase can boost the aesthetic design while offering practical benefits. Our team can help install floating cabinets, floating shelves, symmetrical niches, and wall-mounted grids quickly and efficiently.

Reappropriate Windowsills or Add Window Shelves

Windowsills are often overlooked as storage spaces, but they can be a great place to display plants and quirky decor pieces or keep books and charging devices. You can build custom shelves to fit into the window frame or use pre-made shelving units that fit under the sill.

Another option is to install a shelf above your window. This feature can add the visual appeal of decorative moldings while offering a display area for plates, bowls, and art. Wall-mounted shelves are also easy to install and can be customized to fit the décor of your room, making a statement by adding visual interest to your room. You can use them to store books, photos, decorative items, and other items.

Repurpose a Dresser as a Media Console

If you're short on space, consider repurposing a dresser into a media console. This not only saves money but also creates a unique piece of furniture. Remove some drawers to make space for your electronics, then add decorative baskets or containers to store DVDs, cables, and other items.

Installing a wall-mounted console with drawers can also be a savvy storage solution. While cabinets may make your space feel bulky or claustrophobic, a console can offer equal storage while opening space below and above for furniture and art.

Hang Hooks

Hooks are a simple yet effective way to add storage to any room. Hang them on doors for bags and jackets, or use them in the kitchen to store mugs and utensils. You can even use them in your bedroom to hang jewelry or scarves.

Create Storage for Purses and Shoes on Your Closet Door

If you have limited closet space, consider creating storage for your purses and shoes on the back of your closet door. You can also use over-the-door shoe organizers or purse hangers to store your items. This will free up valuable closet space and keep your things organized. These solutions are inexpensive, easy to install, and you can also personalize them to fit your needs.

Install a Built-In Cabinet

A built-in cabinet is an excellent storage solution for small spaces as it takes advantage of the vertical space in a room. You can install a built-in cabinet on a blank wall in your living room, bedroom, or home office. The cabinets can be customized to fit the specific needs of your space. For instance, you can incorporate shelves, drawers, and cabinets to store your items. Additionally, you can add decorative elements such as lighting to give the cabinet a personalized touch.

Use Pegboard

Pegboards are versatile storage solutions for small spaces. You can use them to store tools, jewelry, office supplies, and other small items. They come in different shapes and sizes, so you can customize them to fit your needs. To create a pegboard, mount the board on a wall and add hooks, baskets, and shelves to store your items. This affordable and practical storage solution can help you organize your small space without taking up too much room.

Install Retractable Kitchen Cabinets

Retractable kitchen cabinets are a great way to save space in a small kitchen. These cabinets can be pulled out when needed and pushed back when not used. This frees up counter space and makes your kitchen more manageable. You can install retractable cabinets under the sink, in the corner of your kitchen, or any other area with limited space.
