Creative Storage Ideas For Small Spaces

Storage solutions can be a dilemma for any area in your home but it can definitely be more of an issue in small spaces.  These areas tend to get cluttered up in a big hurry. So, a well organized room is essential to keeping any sense of order. Coming up with creative storage ideas for small spaces might be easier than you think.

When you don’t have a lot of space, the last thing you want to do is fill it up with bulky storage containers.  However, there are ways to get creative with storage that will go unnoticed as being storage and instead look decorative.

My small craft room is full of creative storage ideas that look to be part of the overall decor of the room.

Vintage Cases

The vintage case is packed full of vintage buttons.  It is very easy access for when I need them but is out of the way when I don’t. A case like this can be used to store small objects in any room.

Another vintage suitcase holds specialty craft papers with the industrial basket on top of it holding my rusty springs and gears.  I like the open storage for my rusty parts because they help to inspire my creativity…..and I just like rusty junk….a little weird I know!

Salvaged Drawers

I added rusty drawers to this vintage telephone desk to store supplies like glue and scissors that I like to keep hidden.  I, of course, like the rusty drawers to be seen!

Unique Clipboards

I hung an old window, with wire and mini clothespins, over my desk for some more storage. My small craft supplies and notes get hung eye level.
