How to add space, style and value to your home

How to add space, style and value to your home

We have scoured the UK and around the globe to find the most innovative storage solutions. Here are ten of the best ways to declutter your home and get organised, whether you’re selling or renovating this autumn. 


1. Stairway to tidiness

This must be one of the cleverest ways to store your books. Take a leaf out of this home to make the most out of the space under your staircase.


2. All fired up

Put the fire back in your home with this stylish tip. If you are not using your fireplace as much as planned, try repurposing it to store books, flowers or photos. 


3. Room to play 


The bedroom is a girl’s dream. The bed is lifted up to make the most of the space beneath, while allowing kids to feel like they have to walk up the steps of a castle to go to sleep. The desks underneath give room for children to do their homework or arts and crafts, while additional drawers offer all-important storage.

Bathroom storage is always a challenge but here is a stylish solution. Everyday items get a contemporary twist with this design, and it’s always easy to access everything or spot when you’re running low. 


5. Mind your step

This is perfect for anyone who can’t stand to throw things away. It’s the ideal solution for small city centre crash pads. If you’re thinking of introducing new stairs to your home, then this could be a winner. 


6. Blink and you’ll miss it


This calming bedroom has been fully fitted with a range of Strachan furniture, including wardrobes, bedside tables and dressing table. There is a secret en suite hidden behind a wardrobe, which features a walk in rain shower, sunken bath, and integrated television.

For sale with Fine & Country Lakes & North Lancs (01539 733500) - £1,200,000. 


7. Kitchens of distinction 


The hub of this home is most definitely the kitchen/breakfast room. This kitchen has the wow factor, with a central island, an Aga, wine cooler and there is a secret larder. The kitchen must be one of the most cluttered places in the house. You can hide all the spices, groceries and cook books in this large hidden pantry. 

On the market with Fine & Country Redbourn (01582 793 116) - £1,150,000


8. Blissful bedroom

Everybody hides clutter under the bed, but here is a novel solution to put everything in order. Time4Sleep stocks a range of Ottoman Storage Beds from £400 upwards. 


9. Cut-in shelving 

 

Who said that storage needs to sacrifice style? This cut-in shelving space in the long corner sofa offers a space to display photos, keep artefacts and store coffee table books ready for a relaxing afternoon of lounging on the sofa and flicking through glossy pages.
