If you’ve ever been to IKEA, you know that innovative storage solutions can turn even the tiniest room into a brilliantly organised space without compromising on aesthetics.
As a passionate DIY-er, you’re probably always on the lookout for new ideas to improve your home and nudge comfort up a little. We’ve gathered some inspo for your future projects! Here are 7 amazing storage ideas you need to try!
1. Staircase storage
A staircase can be a great design feature in your home, but why not turn it into a smart storage solution as well? The idea of adding drawers into the stairs is great because you can hide the objects that clutter your home without having to add a new piece of furniture to the decor. How convenient is that?
2. Secret storage in the door frame
Here’s another hidden storage solution that would be amazing to add to your home-building project. It’s especially useful for the kitchen area, as you can easily turn it into a pantry. Or you can hide your secret stash of snacks (or wine bottles) and no one will be able to find them!
3. Storage around the door frame
Want more ideas to optimise the door frame area? It’s a shame to waste the space on the side and above an entrance, especially when you can add some shelves without too much effort! Declutter your book stacks with this much-needed storage solution, but don’t forget to make it look good as well, as you wouldn’t want it to stick out like a sore thumb!

4. More storage in kitchen drawers
You probably have this type of drawer in your kitchen, but there’s always room for improvement. A good way to make the most of this type of space is to add an extra shelf or two. And if you want to get really crafty, make sure the shelf is designed to hold containers, not just single objects!
5. Clever shoe storage solution
Never hear complaints about having too many shoes again! This is a simple and effective way to keep them organised without holding up too much space. And if you already have a generously-sized area for shoes, it still can’t hurt to add some more!
6. Storage for the living room
Bookshelves and wall furniture can really enhance the look of a room, but they can also make it seem cluttered and unwelcoming if they cover large wall areas.
We love this smart storage solution that utilises unused area around the sofa while also allowing plenty of light to infuse the space.
7. Bookshelf and staircase
The most innovative storage ideas come from the fusion of two concepts, such as a bookshelf that also serves as a staircase. This modern solution demonstrates the true genius of design!
