Creative Storage

It doesn’t matter whether you live in a tiny studio apartment or a home with enough square footage to comfortably house a family of seven, everyone faces storage challenges. Enormous plastic storage bins are unwieldy and inconvenient, as well as being less than aesthetically pleasing. You probably won’t want them out in the open, but if you’ve got a lot of them, keeping them out of sight might be an issue. Fortunately, there are a lot of great ways to get creative with storage. Why not ditch the Rubbermaid and try some of these storage solutions instead?

1. Trunks – Ranging in size from a small suitcase to a portable wardrobe, trunks can be used to store out of season clothing or extra bedding. They look great in bedrooms, and can do double duty as a bench or a nightstand. They’re also functional and fun in living rooms. Why not replace your coffee table with a trunk? Vintage junkies rejoice when they find an old steamer in great shape, but due to their popularity, you can also buy brand new reproductions of these old favorites.

2. Storage ottomans – Whether you prefer the footstool style or one that can work as a bench or coffee table, storage ottomans are perfect for guest bedding, books, or all of those family photos you haven’t gotten around to sorting into albums, yet. You can even find them in kid-friendly prints, and they’re a great looking alternative to a clunky toy box.
