We’ve all experienced it, there are simple too much stuff for the space in the house. Whether you’re drowning in kids toys, books or clothes then these extra storage options should be a big help for you.

Add some extra shelves

Shelves are great. You can make them so you can hang all your pans for easy access and free up a cupboard or pop your books on them. Wherever you have a spare bit of wall (that doesn’t have electric wires going through it) you can throw up a handy shelf.

Door Hooks

Door hooks are like shelves for doors. By this I mean you can attach them to any door and then you are able to hang anything from coats to dressing gowns on them. They are really cheap and are great if your wardrobes are bulging or you aren’t sure where you should put your nice fluffy dressing gown.

Ottoman Beds

This is one of the greatest space savers ever. The underneath of a bed is an underutilised storage option, but now thanks to ottoman beds that is no longer the case. Companies like Bed Star sell them and the top of the bed, mattress and all, simple flips up like the lid of a box revealing excellent under bed storage. Now you can fit shoes, clothes and pretty much anything else under the bed and access it easily.

Ottoman

Much like the ottoman beds, the ottoman is great storage solution. It is a cushioned box that you use to store things like books or DVDS in. Just like the ottoman bed is works great as it’s primary function which is either a comfy stool or soft leg rest. A great addition to any sitting area.

Additional Wardrobe

Perhaps you’ve tried all these things, but you still need more storage. Then I think it’s time you considered buying a new wardrobe. Whether you opt for a new bigger wardrobe or think a smaller additional one will work, is totally down to you. You want to get one that fits nicely in your room, but I would first consider getting some inserts for your current wardrobe. You can specially designed storage options for inside a wardrobe like special places to put t-shirts so you can maximise the storage. Also did you know that by rolling up closes the use up less space than when they are folded. That’s a pro tip for when you can’t get your suitcase to close before a holiday as well – roll your clothes rather than folding them.
