Do you live in a small apartment? Do you find yourself tripping over stray items? If so, then you need some innovative storage ideas for small spaces. Follow the rule of having a place for everything and half your problems will be over. If you find that you use a lemon jester once in a year, get around to donating it. 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. Go vertical by adding more shelves and go all the way up to the ceiling. Use your bed’s head board for storing. The pot at the door can be used for umbrellas and sticks. 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.
