For far too many of us, living space is at an unfortunate premium. Rents and mortgages are rising while the square footage of these homes and apartments is decreasing. The bottom line is that homeowners and renters are paying more for less these days.
Therefore, it comes as no surprise that the number one complaint of homeowners and renters is a lack of storage space. After fitting a sofa set, love seat and entertainment center into a living room, many are left scratching their heads over where to store the rest of their belongings. What most people don’t realize is that there are a multitude of storage options if you utilize your corner spaces properly.
Through a combination of unique furniture choices and an extra dose of creative thinking, corners can be turned into surprisingly useful storage locations. Triangular coffee tables give you the ability to squeeze surface space into these tight nooks and crannies. DIY shelving allows homeowners to create any shelving arrangement the mind can conjure up and build. Corner cabinets even exist to provide both an intriguing visual and an extra dose of storage capabilities. Hooks, tacks and other add-ons finish off the job by giving you space to hang the things that look odd anywhere else.
The point is, where there’s a will, there’s a way. All you need is creativity and a few tools.
