Every homeowner is guilty of always being on the lookout for secret storage spots where they can stash their belongings neatly. Whether you live in a compact apartment, mobile home, luxury villa, or a huge mansion, you'll find that there's a lot that you can do with what you already own and that there's no limit when it comes to turning every inch of space into a makeshift shelf or drawer.
