Kitchen shelves, with plenty of head room, can be fitted with vertical shelves. Double up a trunk for woolies as your coffee table. Hang peg boards on empty kitchen walls for kitchen ware. Use high beds with storage underneath.

Tired of bumping into things in your apartment? You could do with a few ideas of storage for spaces that are small. Firstly, find a storage space for each item in the house.

Things can be stored in eye catching stackable baskets and boxes. Hang your trinkets on a pegboard on an empty wall in the bedroom. Donate that lemon jester if you can use the grater instead.
