Other stylish ways to add storage is by finding interesting shelves that not only create additional storage, but also offer functionality. Shelves provide a nice spot for collectibles or functional items and keep the floor space open. Whether it’s a shelf with towels and pretty soaps in the bathroom, or a shelf with books and photos above the bed, it’s functional, but also provides architectural interest. Browse local flea markets; yard or estate sales for unique one-of-a-kind shelves that create a stylish focal point, while also spotlighting other items.
Another universal challenge with garage apartments is their lack of storage space. Apartment garages aren’t known for their large spacious, walk-in closets. In fact, the closets are often tiny in size. So, get creative with adding storage throughout the floor plan. Purchase adjustable rods that can be added to the closets for extra rows of hanging space. Also, install pullout rods that can quickly be pulled out in the bathroom for a handy place to hang a robe or bath towel, but don’t require a lot of wall space when not in use.
If you have a hard time finding a spot to hide larger household items like seasonal decorations, family mementos and other items you don’t have to access often, then use the space under your bed and sofa for additional storage. You can also raise your bed by using cement blocks and then use a longer bed skirt to hide the blocks. The extra height will create just a bit more storage space than usual, all while creating an elegant feel to your bedroom or sleeping area.
Carefully choose the furniture pieces so that they are multi-functional as well as comfortable. Some great examples of versatile furniture pieces include a futon or sofabed that offers additional sleeping space as well as space for seating when entertaining. Or, use an ottoman to double as a stool for seating or propping your legs up after a long day, or even add a tray on top for an easy additional table that can be placed anywhere anytime. Stacking tables also offer added function by using very little space, but they can be separated to provide extra table space near seating areas. Multi-functional furniture pieces will give you added function without overcrowding the interior with too much furniture.
