Storage can be one of those elements of the home or apartment that makes or breaks your decision to call it home or not. It's not surprising given that most of us have so many things that we want or need to take us through life, but finding where to keep them when they're not in use can be one heck of a struggle! Though, it doesn't need to be...
Take a look at, or think about your bed. Turns out it can actually be a wonderful space-saver and a master of your at-home storage solutions and you didn't even know it!
All you need is a four-legged bed frame with about 30-40cm elevation from off the floor and you have at very least a double bed's worth of storage at your command. Here are some sensational ideas to make all that under-bed space work for you!
Sure, whatever you decide to file away under your bed might be away from the immediate view of visitors or yourself, but it doesn't mean they remain unseen! Investing in some snazzy and stylish baskets that simply slide out from underneath the bed adds a bit of character to the space and if you get your colours or styles right, can actually add a helluva lot to the aesthetic of your room.
Add a bit of flare to the under bed space with a touch of two-tone. These baskets are great because they're so rigid, yet super stylish, so no-one will even think you've got all your socks and undies in them!
These are super trendy right now and double just as well as picnic baskets, laundry baskets or any other sort of basket to carry your bits in. The smaller options would line-up nicely underneath a legged bed, while the bigger options can be purely decorative, hold plants or put in some hard carrying yards.
Not just for carrying fruit and holding things in supermarkets anymore, these street-cool crates will add an edge to your bedroom look that you'll be pleasantly surprised by!
