Creating subtle storage spaces has practically become an art form in the twenty-first century. It requires us to think out of the box and think beyond the traditional boundaries of the space. You have to carefully think of all the ways you can to utilize the three dimensions of the space in order to get smart results.
Since this trend is both efficient and productive, we’re going to show you the 5 smart space saving storage hacks! We hope this inspires you to get the clever ideas to build your own house!
1. Underfoot and hidden
Platform beds are a very hot bedroom interior design trend these days. They consist of a small one step-up platform that the mattress is put on. However, the height of the platform is not a set rule. It can range from anywhere between 6” to 1.5’. so you can utilize the space underfoot to design hidden storage compartments that can easily be accessed when the time calls for it.
2. Hidden pull-outs
While traditional wardrobes are still very much ubiquitous in every home interior design – and will be for a long, long time – people are still trying to deviate lightly from that concept. So if you want an alternative to your large wardrobe that takes a lot of space in your room, try designing small compartments and pull-out hangings from clever places like the headboard of your bed.
3. Creating compact furniture-sets
Small style interior design has ushered in an era of smart and compact furniture design. These days, a bed is simply not just a bed. It has a headboard that both a small cupboard we well as a study shelf. Similarly, a couch is not simply a couch; it can also be a foldable bed. You can find a lot of such dual-purposed furniture sets from any respectable shop.
4. Merging design with function
While all the storage hacks mentioned above are a post-modern invention, you can still go for the conventional designs with a fresh approach. For example, if you feel like you need the traditional wardrobe, then don’t make it a totally separate entity of your design. Try to camouflage wit with the overall interior design scheme of your room.
5. Transitional furniture
Transitional furniture is the one you set up in between the open floor planning of two separate areas. For example, a couch bed or console between the living room and dining space. But you can also use these furniture pieces to create subtle storage areas. For example, an open kitchen-counter can be used to extend the storage space of the kitchen itself.
