Maximize Your Closet SpaceYour closet is not necessarily limited to its obvious dimensions. When you get a little creative with the area, you can double its space. Adding shelving like in the photo to the right allows you to put in an extra hanging rack, using the lower space that often remains empty. Drawer dividers can be added to increase the amount of what can fit into them. There are also over the door hanging shelves that use up even more space that will otherwise be wasted.
Use Your Walls to Your AdvantageWalls are mostly used for hanging pictures, but they are a great place for additional home storage. In the office, adding floating shelves above your desk utilizes a lot of otherwise empty space. Files that you don't often need in hand can be stored at the top.
You can hang kitchen utensils that are used often on the wall space between the counter and the cabinets. A hanging cup rack doubles as decor if you put your prettiest mugs on it. This simple solution frees up a lot of drawer and counter space. If you don't like the idea of having to hang up hardware for this, a utensil holder on top of your counters will alleviate some space in your kitchen drawers.
Multifunctional FurnitureThe very best way to increase your storage space without adding furniture is to buy pieces that have storage hidden inside of them. Storage ottomans are great for this. They can be used as extra seating or table space, but also allow you to keep items inside of them and out of sight. Benches are also great seats that have plenty of room for stuff underneath.
A captain's bed comes with built-in drawers underneath the frame. Some coffee tables have a top that lifts up to desk level, with storage space underneath.
