My husband & I live in a efficiency (house) with only bathroom separated.What i have is a house built like an efficiency apartment, but its a house. We are so cramped and have little storage. I need advice on how to determine what is right for the room and the kind of storage I can build for such a small space. I already got rid of our dresser and put our clothes in plastic containers under our bed. I want to build stuff that can give me more floor space.
Any and all ideas are much needed. Stuck in a corner.
Thank you JoAnna
Ana has plans for a nice closet organizer. Something like that could make a good wall unit for storing lots of things, including your clothes.
There are also some nice designs around for storage units that incorporate a fold-out table. It's a desk and a table when you need it, hidden when you don't. Space around it is shelving.
Hanging wall cabinets are also nice. Ikea has some very nice designs, and Ana's designs for wall cabinets are a pretty good place to start.
One storage solution I like to use in small spaces is installing shelves around the top of the room. It is also a great way to add lighting! It is great for storage containers for items that are not used as often or for rotating seasonal clothing. I would have my sweaters up in the summer and summer clothes up in the winter.
