Storage is one of those things that people don’t prioritise in their homes. Then, when they move in, they realise just how important storage is. Not having enough storage can force you to compromise on so many things, so how do you get more of it?
One of the big things you can do is have built in storage, rather than freestanding. This will give you far more usable space that is designed to your specifications. Another thing you can do is to think about dead space that could be used for storage. Think about getting some bespoke cupboard for the space under the stairs, or perhaps consider built in wardrobes with cupboards at the top to make the most of ceiling height. There are many options for hallways now as well – think about shoe racks, cupboards, or benches that have internal storage for various day to day objects you can’t find a place for.
