Our bedrooms can quickly become the source of clutter with out of season clothes taking up space in our wardrobes, suitcases waiting for our next getaway and those shoes we're sure we'll wear again. With an Ottoman bed, these extra pieces can easily be stored away when not in use. Ottoman beds come in various types from end opening, side opening, half opening or drawers, meaning no matter your storage needs, there will be a solution for you. Ottoman beds also make a great addition to guest rooms, which often double up as a storage area in our homes, helping to bring order to these spaces, so they're ship shape when your guests arrive.

Perfect for saving space and offering storage, multifunctional furniture has grown in popularity in recent years as our homes took on many functions. If space-saving is more of a priority than storage, there are some great options with dining tables that transform into coffee tables, beds that transform into dining tables and desks that simply fold away at the end of your working day. When it comes to storage specifically, footstools with built-in storage or benches with storage options, make for stylish and practical additions!

A TV can often take up valuable space in the living room when placed on a single-purpose TV stand. Instead, by having your TV wall mounted and acting as a focal point with storage surrounding it, you can create a media storage system that's both eye-catching and practical. If this isn't an option for your space, then there are numerous TV units that offer storage space in the form of drawers, closed cabinets or shelving.

We've touched on Ottoman beds, but another great storage solution are sofas with add on L-shaped Ottomans or stand-alone Ottomans. With a lift-up lid, this solution is great for stashing away spare cushions, cosy blankets and children's toys. You can choose to match your Ottoman to your sofa and create a cohesive look, or choose a stand-alone piece in a contrasting colour to create a point of interest in your space.

One of the easiest ways we've found to quickly store away shoes, outdoor gear and toys are baskets. Labelled baskets are a practical way to separate each child's items and make tidying up a simple process. What's more, these baskets can then be stored on shelves in the hallway to free up important floor space.

When it comes to children's rooms, they can quickly become the source of clutter, with toys and clothes scattered all over. Make this a thing of the past with a high sleeper with built-in storage or desk – perfect for older kids or teenagers. This offers a great space for homework and studying, as well as storage to prevent the floor from becoming a wardrobe!
