Storage furniture is meant to provide a hidden yet accessible means of organizing materials and items. Storage has been around for centuries, and varies depending on what is needed to be stored or organized. For varying rooms, storage is provided in common furniture such as wardrobes and dressers for clothing in a bedroom or bookcases and credenzas for common items in a living room. Designed out of a wide variety of materials, storage can be exemplified in entire rooms, such as closets, or in small fixtures such as wine racks.

How do you make extra storage space in a home?

Make extra storage space in a home by placing baskets under your bed in which out of season clothes and shoes can be stored. Install hanging organizer units behind doors to hang towels, toiletries, belts or scarves. Storage furniture like a storage ottoman, mudroom bench, or storage chest, can also be incorporated around your home for more storage solutions.

How do you estimate the storage space needed for your household?

If you are storing away seasonal décor for your household, you will need a 5 ft. by 5 ft. (1.5 m by 1.5 m) storage unit. If you are storing a 2-bedroom apartment you will need a 10 ft. by 10 ft. (3 m by 3 m) storage unit. For a 5-bedroom household consider a storage unit that is 10 ft. by 30 ft. (3 m by 9 m).
