Need Space?

One of the best ways to declutter your home is to use of every inch of space for storage, especially in small living areas or compact sleep spaces. Having hidden or unconventional storage areas will allow you to have an impressive tardis-like home and will certainly look good on your instagram!

Living Room

Your living room is the heart of your house and one littered with toys, books or other clutter, won't impress when your friends come to visit out of the blue.

To create that coveted central floor space, perfect for activities, why not try moving your sofa against the wall? Better yet, if your living room layout allows, why not have a look at corner sofas? They will add an extra bit of seating to that pesky corner space and will make the room feel larger than it is.

Coffee tables occupy a relatively large area in your living room and therefore investing in one that has storage capabilities would be a practical space saving solution. Check out our lift up coffee table which has a conventional storage area at its base and one hidden beneath the lift up mechanism!

If you want to keep the centre of the room clear, why not look into storage ottomans or wicker baskets? These stylish little additions are not only great to look at, but can also be used to store small items away for a quick declutter. Having neat and practical storage solutions for you living room, like bookcases or television stands is the best way to maximise space. Furniture with unconventional designs and unusual storage areas is not only great to show off to friends or family, but can be a statement piece for your living room too.

Just a bit of inspiration.


The more floor space you have, the more you will be able to enjoy your bedroom. Simple. There are a myriad of space saving solutions for your bedroom, all of which are ideal for more compact rooms.

Storage beds are a simple way to maximise space in the bedroom. Ottoman beds are very easy to operate, thanks to the pistons that assist with lifting the frame, and are great for keeping small boxes, shoes and clothes out of the way. Drawer storage beds offer multiple pull-out drawers perfect for storing clothes that wont fit in your wardrobe. For children's bedrooms, cabin beds offer a huge amount of space in the form of drawers and shelves, and they virtually occupy the same amount of space as a standard single bed as well.

For a lot of people, behind the door storage is a missed opportunity for hanging bags, clothes and jewellery. With the use of hanging rails or hooks, you can hang a surprising amount on the back of your bedroom or wardrobe door. Bedside Caddy Organisers are a very cheap storage solution that hang from the end of your bed. For less that £8, you can store various knick-knacks like tablets, magazines and slippers.

Keeping your desk, windowsill and bedside table clean creates the illusion of space and will keep your mind tidy too, as the saying goes. Creative additions to your room such as pinboards or small floating shelves will allow you to keep interesting or important items out of the way.
