A small hall to store it all
If you find yourself in a tight spot when it comes to space, take a look at the ideas below for fitting in ample storage solutions for the whole family, all in a small
When it comes to tight spaces, there’s just no room for the unnecessary. Everything in this solution is there for a reason, so we asked the interior designer who created it to walk us through it and show us all the thinking behind it.
Remember Fredrik’s key small space storage tips: in tight or narrow spaces, consider wardrobes with sliding doors. And don’t be afraid to put your walls to work!
With rails, drawers, racks, hooks and boxes inside, a wardrobe makes a great home for almost anything you use or wear. Think shoes, jewelry, hockey sticks, skateboards, ice boots, water bottles, helmets...you get the picture.
To make the most of the storage space you have, make a plan for how to organize what’s inside. Full-width drawers or half? A shoe rack or storage boxes? You can even have a shallow depth drawer to store your jewelry.
We built a desk with storage between two wardrobes. We started with a desk that’s the same depth as the wardrobes. Then added a few BESTÅ storage cabinets above. A chair on castors fits snuggly against the desk when not in use, so it’s not taking up any extra floorspace.
With storage under and over the bed, you can create a bedroom, complete with plenty of places to put your things, in the smallest of spaces. Put a single bed lengthways along a wall and build around it. It saves maximum space and feels super snug.
