Gallery: 9 Sexy Storage Solutions for Small Spaces

Walk-In Closet/Room Divider

Always wanted a walk-in closet? Make one for yourself by following this easy tutorial from Ikea. The partition that closes in the closet also doubles as a room divider and headboard.

Shipping Pallet Counter

Ah, the humble shipping pallet – is there nothing it can’t do? The only thing we don’t like about it is the amount of work that sometimes must be performed to transform it into something else but that’s not the case with this elegant solution seen at Remodelista. The owners of the Olabisi wine tasting room needed more storage, so they created this functional counter/shelf/island by stacking some shipping pallets and inserting baking sheets into each one. The same idea could be applied to make a coffee table or even a bench.

Hidden Staircase Drawers

The owners of this 425 sq. st. NYC apartment loved their high ceilings but not their limited floorplan. Luckily, Specht Harpman Architects intervened and turned the space into a multi-level loft with tons of functionality. Our favorite part? The staircase hides a whole wall of storage!

Picture Rail Shoe Rack

If your shoes are as much of a pain to store as they are a joy to look at, why not treat them like the art that they are? Instead of keeping them stacked in boxes (which just take up even more room in your closet), this tip from Martha Stewart suggests using inexpensive picture rail molding to create vertical storage that is just as pretty as it is practical.

    Why is it necessary to have a headline PORN, on your site. I find it offensive. You have some good ideas, but that is offensive. No, I am not a religious right person, but if you are wanting all kinds of people to pay attention, that was not one of them!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That storage bench is a great idea. Want to do something similar in my apartment. I want it to be like a small bench with storage for my son’s toys, and giving him a good place to sit and look out the window. (Window has child safety gate and locks)
