In our previous blog we went over some clever ways to add storage to a cramped kitchen. Today we’d like to give you some ideas for some larger furniture pieces that perform double duty with their hidden storage capabilities.

Coffee tables - A coffee table is a staple furniture piece in most living rooms. They Provide a service for decor, a home for the tv remote, or a table top for movie night dinners. They can also house quite a bit of storage space. Lift top coffee tables allow you to raise the top of the table up and store things underneath. Cloth cubes are also an easy storage solution. Slide a cube underneath the table and fill it with the things that make your living room feel cluttered.

Beds with drawers - Everyone needs a bed to sleep in at night, why not get one that adds heaps of storage space to your bedroom. You can purchase beds with built in drawers as the base. This can provide excellent storage space for extra blankets and bedding or it can double as a dresser if your room is a little too small to accommodate a full sized one. If you already have a bed you love you can easily upcycle some old dresser drawers by adding wheels and sliding them under your current box spring.

Sofa Beds - A guest room is not always an option, especially if you live in a one bedroom apartment or share space with roommates. Rest assured you can still offer your guest a comfortable place to rest for the night with a sofa bed. The mattress and bed frame nests inside of your living room sofa, out of the way and hidden until its needed. No need to turn guests away for the night due to a small living space.
