Eight Storage Ideas for Small Spaces

Spaces has one problem that they are limited and you have to fit all your interiors in that space, where storage comes in a challenge. But thanks to interior designers community to the tiny home movement, no wands or wizards needed—storage ideas for small spaces are in greater supply than ever

Folding Desk

In many small rooms, it would be crazy to consider making space for a full-size desk. But you can't write that novel in bed (well, you could, but it sure would be nice to sit on a chair occasionally), so either slip a stool under a console table or find a folded desk you can affix to the wall.

Wall-Mounted Seating

Seating with less space, install a floating bench-shelf low along a wall, or have one fashioned from an inexpensive material like plywood and mounted the way in the room below. Seating that doesn't clutter floor space? Check.

Kitchen Island with Storage Space

Kitchen spaces are usually much smaller. Tuck your extra plates and multiple gadgets you purchased during your celery juice phase in the cabinets of your kitchen island. Never wonder where to store your holiday placemats again.

Banquette Seating

Build a bench in that underutilized corner of the kitchen, top it with a custom cushion, and you'll only need a round table and two small chairs to make it feel like a legitimate dining area—just be sure it's the kind of bench you can open from the top, so the storage factor is maxed-out.

Convertible Furniture

Instead of opting for single-use pieces, consider adding furniture that can convert easily for use in another way. A drop-leaf table can be a console, a desk, or an all-out dining room table depending on how you set it up. And two consoles, side-by-side, can be rotated to stand back-to-back for bar-height table seating.

Stairs Storage

Yes, you can opt for glamorous built-ins—or simply get creative with how you arrange furniture in that underutilized nook beneath the stairs.

Built-In Nooks

Optimize storage space by taking full advantage of your nooks. Build in a small desk area that meets all of your work-from-home needs (like Cloth ironing) or maybe just add a bit of extra seating with an armchair.

Floor Cabinets

Same part of the apartment, different functionality: Build cabinets on top of the floor and you'll be able to easily compartmentalize—and access—clothes and supplies.
