You are aware of every inch of your home, but when you need to store something, you may feel that there is no more storage left that you can use. This is a common problem for homeowners. Let us help you to innovate a few storage places just before your eyes.

You might think the countertop never needs more stuff, but you’d be surprised. Make extra room in your spice cabinet by setting up a classy countertop spice rack. Use a multi-layered fruit basket for handy apples and pears, over an extra level for regular clutter or utensils.

The windowsill:

The kitchen window recess can be fitted with a sleek shelving design to keep a few decorative or useful items. A nice set of glassware will make the window glimmer as the light will passes through.

Ceiling or wall fixing:

A pan rack can make a stunning addition to the vertical balance of a kitchen. You can fix a hook on the ceiling or in the sidewall and attach some storage space like a bracket, shelves or a seat, which will leave the underneath floor free.

Behind the sofa or couch:

Often the back portion of the couch is left unused as we do not think of it as storage. When the sofa or the couch is against the wall, no empty space can be found, but if you can drag the couch a feet or half away, you will get the space to stash some collapsible furniture. A nice console table in the hall can also serve the purpose of storing the extra dishware.

Shower room:

Looking around the bathroom for places to install a cabinet or add shelving is a unique challenge. Consider the shower itself: with creative tile work, extra space in the shower can be converted into storage for toiletries and even towels. This will make up for the lack of towel cabinet yet serve the purpose even better.
