20 Ingenious Storage Ideas That You Never Thought Of
I’m always looking for more space and these storage ideas really helped me to organize the place. Really liked the unders stairs storage idea.
Always on the lookout for more storage, no matter how big my home is. There is always some thing that need more space and can’t be put anywhere.

You will be killing two birds with one stone! Storage beds offer plenty of space if well designed. In this bedroom, the bed has a rear storage unit that is well subdivided into drawers to maximize on the space.
We love this idea because it is very practical and makes the space look neat and tidy.
However, we think you can do better by having the storage unit designed with a more stylish appeal.
2. Such a clever idea!
If your storage space is limited horizontally, then opting to go for wooden crates which can be mounted vertically on the wall can be a great idea. Wooden crates are just great for storing all kinds of objects including; clothes, books, toys and other accessories.
They offer enhanced visual appeal, functionality and definitely personality. Plus, installing wooden crates is just a simple do-it-yourself project.
What we love about this idea is that it creates very functional additional storage space and improves the general appeal of the whole space.
However, we think you can do more by adding color, style, and some customization in the creation of the wooden crates for uniqueness.
3. Go Vertical!
Whenever you are short on storage space, it’s your level of creativity that will save the day. Going vertical is the best way to maximize your storage space as well as utilize spaces that seemingly look empty.
There are many ways with which you can design your vertical storage and this depends on the location, size of space and items to be stored there.

There are some items that could really give you a challenge when looking for space to perfectly keep them. With items such as bikes and limited space in your storage area, you can opt to go for a simple idea that involves using a simple standing storage rack.
A rack such as the one in this photo acts as a perfect storage unit for several items.
Your bike will perfectly rest on the upper space while other items such as shoes and bike riding gear are placed on the lower open cabinets.
We love this idea because it offers great storage functionality and is also appealing to the eye.
5. Simple garden storage
Your garden tools need to be well stored for protection against harsh weather elements such as snow which could even lead to their rot. Therefore, developing a simple storage unit that serves both on functionality and appeal to the eye is a great idea.
The garden wooden dresser above is a great storage unit for your garden tools such as watering cans and basins.
We love this idea because the storage unit serves well on functionality and appeal. It is also durable if well constructed and maintained.
However, we think you can do better by making it larger so that it can even accommodate larger tools such as shovels.
