As you settle into your home in Back Bay, Wellesley, or Downtown Boston, your possessions grow. It’s tempting to begin looking for a new home when this happens, but that isn’t always necessary; with a few unique storage solutions, you can create additional storage space you never knew existed.
The key is to be inventive and look carefully at your home to find every possible place for storage solutions without taking away any of that much-needed space. Here are some of my favorite methods to create space from our condominium interior designers:
The bedroom has plenty of unused space hiding under the bed. You can utilize this space by creating built-in storage worked into the bed frame itself. Alternatives include purchasing pieces of dual-use furniture. A stylish, flat-topped wooden chest makes a perfect storage solution and can be used to display photos, a mirror, or even books.
Your hallway is another perfect place to add storage. By creating a small, separate mudroom area, you can create additional storage while saving your floor from dripping umbrellas and muddy boots. Add shelving and bench seating (with removable seat cushions) to the area. You can then store all of your outdoor gear, outdoor toys, and even pet accessories in this one space. Coat racks and key hooks on one of the walls also mean you always know where everything is when you are in a rush.
Cabinets are a great storage solution that do not belong just in your kitchen. Built-in cabinets, shelving, and cubby holes can be added to unused corners and under staircases or be designed to double as window or bench seats.
