Storage. There's never enough. Not in the kitchen, the garage, the bedroom, the family room, the kids room, everywhere you look there's stuff and not enough places to put it all. Imagine what little storage you get in a one bedroom apartment. Lucky for me, I don't have to imagine it. My husband and I just downsized our living arrangements from a two bedroom to a one bedroom and we have a baby on the way. Nevermind the "what are they thinking", almost everyone is saying that, my main concern is storage and how we're going to squeeze as much as possible, without sacrificing style or losing a lot of square footage.
Our first purchase was a white wardrobe-closet. It fits perfect in our bedroom, and has tripled our storage space. At only $115 I thought it was quite a steal, my husband who spent 6 hours over two days putting the thing together disagrees.
We have had to get creative with storage, and it seems to be working. We have a bookshelf, we stocked with baskets. We have a bench that we're converting into our coffee table. A piano bench converted into an end table. And our old seldom used shoe-rack is now housing our towels and linens. We're also reorganizing things, for example our printer is now in a cabinet with the cable modem and cable box. (No room for a desk in this place!)
What are some storage solutions you use?
