While small apartments and homes are appealing for their charm and coziness, they challenge homeowners and designers alike to find space for storage.  With small spaces comes the need for creative storage solutions.

Custom Closets

A small space doesn’t mean you can’t have a beautiful custom closet.  Some of the best design ideas to incorporate in your closet are:

  • Multi-level hanging rods
  • A mix of rods, drawers, and open shelving
  • Adjustable shelves
  • Maximized vertical and horizontal space
  • White finishes to give the closet an open and airy look

Kitchen Storage

Small kitchens need to use every square inch to get all the extra storage space possible.  Consider some of these unique storage solutions to maximize your limited space.

  • Slide-out drawers for the pantry
  • Open shelving or cabinets that reach the ceiling
  • Full-extension drawer slides
  • Light colors
  • Slim island
  • Smaller appliances

Home office

Small homes or apartments don’t generally have a dedicated room for a home office.  But as today’s workforce moves to working remote and from homes, you may want to think about designing an efficient home office area that blends in with the rest of the space.   Some ideas to help with this design:

  • Neutral color palette
  • Small desk or table (avoid chunky furniture)
  • Comfortable chair
  • Floating shelves
  • Built-in storage

Bedroom storage

If you have a relatively small bedroom – no worries. There are plenty of custom storage solutions we can use to design a space that will give you some extra storage space you need.   A tight bedroom should look to the following design ideas:

  • Open shelving above the headboard
  • Custom cabinetry surrounding the bed
  • Built-in storage units
  • Bed with drawers
  • Loft bed

Bathroom Storage

A small bathroom doesn’t necessarily mean no storage space. If you have a small bathroom, let’s think vertically.

  • Maximizing vertical space
  • Vertical cabinetry
  • Open shelving above toilet
  • Narrow storage closet
  • Bright colors
