The lower area can be utilized as a table with storage space underneath and the upper portion – neatly furnished as a bed with safety rails etc.

Today beds come with underneath storage options that can contain any likely clutter usually happening in small spaces. You can check out beds with trundle options for accommodating your child’s friend occasionally. Floating shelves and floating desktops are good options leaving precious floor space free for that open uncluttered look.

Smart Floating Shelves – A Must for Your Homes

What will we do without storage shelves in our home? Storage shelves are such low-key and mundane things, we do not consider them as first priority when we do our home decoration.

Many are the kinds of shelves we use all over the house. We use lofts for storing things that we like to stash away.

Same is the case with dining room, living room and bed rooms where we have a variety of shelves for everyday use.

Formerly only huge spacious cupboards and shelves were built out of solid wood and used in our homes when space was not rationed. But once the home sizes have become smaller and smaller, we are thinking more and more ways of smart storage.

What are all the shelves you need in your living room? You may need a media armoire, a book shelf, a display shelf and maybe a china shelf. You may need a cupboard in the foyer area definitely. When you have a small corner space left, you can have a small floating type corner shelf to keep a table light, a telephone or a clock.
