Three Unexpected Storage Solutions To Consider This Year

At the start of a New Year – we tend to think about the changes we want to make. These could be changes to our personal lifestyle or even changes in the home.

Today we want to focus on some changes you could consider in your home…

At Shelfstore we know how much of an impact clutter can have – on both your home and your mood. So if you are someone who is feeling the stress when it comes to the amount of clutter in your home, then perhaps you need to consider how you can make your home more organised.

There’s only one way to do this in our minds and that’s to create some more storage space. You may have already thought about the ways you can incorporate storage into your home – but have you considered these unexpected places…

Under the bed storage

Storing clothing constitutes a big part of our storage problem. In the past, we’ve only ever had wardrobes as the main way to store our clothes – but now there are more innovative ideas. Let’s say you have a bed that’s quite high up with plenty of space underneath like the one below? Why not consider adding a few drawers to sit right underneath – it’s the perfect place for all your winter wear and blankets!
