4 Clever Storage Solutions We Learned from Real Homes

Take inspiration from these innovative organizing ideas


What completes a clean and organized home? If you ask us, we'd say that ample storage space and smart solutions are important elements that you shouldn't neglect. By having enough shelves, cabinets, and boxes—you can avoid clutter and keep things in place easier.

To make the most of the space that we have, you should also be ready to explore unique storage solutions and out-of-the-box ideas. Here are four organizing ideas that we spotted in the homes that we have featured that you can consider:

Turn the staircase into a storage station

Too many pairs but little storage space? If your closet can no longer handle your shoes and belongings, you can turn the space under the stairs into a cabinet where you can store shoes, slippers, and other items. In this home, interior designer Anla Li-Tan maximized the space under the stairs by adding built-in cabinets.
