The most important thing, to succeed with your storage, is to invest time and commitment in your storage solutions. Have a good think about what your storage needs look like and make sure to use even the small areas. Make sure to give each item a specific place and always put the items back in their place after they have been used. This way you avoid having things scattered all over the home and always know where they are when you need them.

Hallway storage can be tricky-- many hallways can be small or narrow, but it's often where we need storage solutions the most. Be sure to make use of the space you have. Use a hat shelf or clothing rack for hangers and set up extra hooks or knobs for extra hanging space. If your hallway is very small, consider using this hanging space to leave your floors uncluttered. For example, a wall-hung shoe shelf can help you free up surface area and make your area easier to clean. If you have larger hallways, it can be nice to have somewhere to sit. Why not invest in a bench with hidden storage?
When it comes to loose objects, we recommend investing in baskets. Feel free to mark the baskets with small notes or pictures to make it even easier to keep them in order! Pick out things that are not in season or that you do not need right now - it will save you a lot of space. Reserve a special place for things that you reach for on a daily basis, such as keys and wallet. Klong's beautiful Gömma is perfect for this purpose!
There are a fantastic number of storage options for the living room. Start by thinking through whether you want an open or closed storage solution. If you want to hide small items and cords, you should invest in a sideboard or a TV bench with storage, such as this stylish media bench from Decotique. You can also find other furniture with hidden storage possibilities, everything from poufs to side tables to coffee tables with drawers that hold a lot
If you prefer an open storage solution, there are several ways to go. Try to position sofas free from walls and use the space for a low shelf behind the backrest. A bookshelf that stands on its own will be a good room divider if you have an open floor plan with a kitchen or sleep alcove.
Make sure to keep your sofa tidy- buy one or more nice baskets where you can put extra pillows, blankets and throws and the room immediately looks more organised.
The bedroom is a room where it is extra important to take care of all spaces to optimise storage. Think carefully about your wardrobe interior - it is often possible to build on it with double bars on the height, separators in drawers and hanging storage on the inside of the wardrobe doors.
Smart storing under and around the bed. There are lots of smart drawers on wheels, with or without lids, which can be pushed under the bed. Get a bedside table with storage where you can put any small items that clutter your surfaces.
How about the bathroom? You may have limited storage options there. In a spacious bathroom, it's nice to set up a beautiful display cabinet or linen cabinet to store towels, toilet rolls, jewellery and lotions. Set up a plant for an extra homely feeling.
In a smaller bathroom, it is good to think strategically about what you really need to have on display. Instead of stuffing up shelves, store refills of basic products elsewhere and refill in your bathroom when necessary. Buy storage boxes, preferably transparent, and put them in the bathroom cabinet. This way it is easier to see where everything is and you will have more space. Don't forget to use the inside of the bathroom door to hang towels and bathrobes on a nice door-hung hook.
The kitchen often has quite a lot of storage right from the start. Take advantage of the drawers that are available and divide the kitchen drawers into smaller sections to maximize the space.
Remember to use the space in the room. Maybe you have space to set up a free-standing kitchen island, a shelf combination or a few individual shelves? A couple of well-selected cups, plates and glasses look very nice in open storage in the kitchen. Use a bar, a grid or a board to hang your kitchen accessories - it saves space in the drawers and looks more appealing.
Don't forget the space under the sink! With the help of a rod under the sink, you can easily get space for spray bottles and dishcloths that can be a little tiring to always have in front of you.
There's never enough storage in children's room. Make sure to invest in a good wardrobe where you can easily label or mark shelves and drawers according to what is stored. Clean regularly so that outgrown clothes and unused things do not take up unnecessary space.
For toys, stuffed animals, crafts and other small items, we recommend investing in stackable boxes that can easily be stored on the floor or on a shelf. Be sure to choose low shelves for things that are used often so that children can reach them without risking spilling everything. A good idea is to mark the boxes with pictures so that children can help keep the room tidy. Here you will find lots of nice storage boxes in playful colours and patterns.
The home office has never been as relevant as it is now, which also makes it more important than ever to keep it tidy. Give yourself peace of mind by investing in flexible storage solutions for all the little things you need to store. If you have the space, a drawer under the desk is a good storage solution for both the laptop, paper and pens and other small items.
If the space under your desk is limited, we recommend building on the height here. Put up one or two shelves above the desk and invest in boxes to store your most important items. With a magazine collector, you can store important papers and newspapers that you want to save - or why not invest in a bulletin board? With a couple of nice hooks and clamps, you can easily create nice interior details, while keeping your desk nice and orderly. This one from Monograph, for example, is also magnetic!
