Maximising Storage Space*

Next month we are moving in to a bigger house, I say bigger but actually it is smaller but it has an extra bedroom. So I am currently trying to think of ways to maximise our space especially our storage space. In our current house we have quite a large space under the stairs which we store a heck of a lot of stuff and the same again in the bedroom we have a cubby hole which we store a lot of stuff. So I am trying to declutter and sell on things I don't want to take with us. In the new house we have a loft space where we can store a lot of things that we don't reach for on a day to day basis.

We will still be left with quite a few bits and bobs that we do use frequently and we will need a proper home for because I do not want to see things lying around in the new house. One thing I have been thinking about is a coffee table with drawers or a trunk to be used as a coffee table so that it can double up as storage as well as looking good in our living room. Something like these tables

What do you think? we also have a large foot stool that came with our settees that we can use to store stuff inside so we should have no excuse for having things left around. The next thing to think about is something to store Thomas's toys inside so we can tidy them away when Thomas isn't playing with them. I would love to know if you have any ideas to share with me?

  1. I swear by the ikea expedit units for toy storage. You can get different coloured pull out boxes to separate all the toys and they are perfect for little ones to access themselves.

    We also have a lovely Boori toy chest that is prettier but more expensive. Good luck with the move! :)

  2. I have a coffee table with two wicker baskets in that store Rio's most used toys. I keep saying im going to go to ikea but never get round too it x
