Tiny homes have become a national phenomenon, and even if you’re not into the tiny home craze, many homeowners are opting to forgo over-sized mansions for smaller, more intimate homes. The only problem? Storage and organization can be an issue with smaller spaces and rooms that are irregularly shaped. If you’re experiencing this conundrum in your home, check out 8 of the best small space organization hacks for any room!
1. Under the Stairs
Do you have empty, unused space under your staircase? Why not transform it into storage or even an office area with a desk and shelves? The space under the stairs is often underutilized and it’s one of the most unexpected spaces for storage. If you have the space, you should really take advantage of it.
2. Labeled containers
Kitchens can become easily disorganized. Once of the best ways to eliminate clutter and keep items like flour, sugar and nuts organized are sealed containers with labels. The labels allow you to easily pull out what you need when cooking and baking, and the sealed containers keep the items fresh!
3. Pretty baskets
Baskets are ideal for storage and there are so many pretty basket options to choose from these days. There are wicker baskets, braided baskets, and fabric baskets in all different colours and designs. Use them for storing throw blankets and pillows in your living room, knick knacks, or pretty much anything else you want stored out of view.
4. Corner shelving
If you’re finding you need more storage, consider corning shelving. You can easily organize the shelves with your keys, wallet, sunglasses, bags, and any other trinkets you need space for.
5. Bed frames with storage
Have a small bedroom and need more space for your clothes? A bed frame with storage underneath will be your saving grace! There are beds with drawers underneath and bed frames where the base lifts up to reveal storage space. These frames will hold tons of clothes, so you don’t need to worry about over-stuffing your closet.
6. Tiny tables
While a large coffee table can take up a lot of space in a small room, smaller tables will still provide you with storage, but can be more easily positioned around your furniture. You can place succulents, books, coasters or a small vase of flowers on tiny tables for more storage!
7. Over-the-door storage
Over-the-door storage isn’t used as much as it could be, especially in small spaces! But the truth is, if you have a tiny space, it can make a huge difference. You can use over-the-door storage for anything from shoes to bathroom supplies to children’s toys.
8. Get creative with awkward corners
If you want to make the most out of an awkward corner where not much furniture can fit, you’ll have to get creative! Think: Creating a cozy reading nook with a bookshelf, or mounting a single shelf to create a DIY vanity or desk space.
If you have a small space and are in desperate need of organization and storage, use these hacks to get the most out of your more compact rooms!
