5 Types of Storage to optimize your space!

Living in NYC often means getting creative about how we use our spaces. To keep the small rooms tidy we love adding storage in places that are often forgotten. Every corner serves a function with us. Check out the top 5 spaces we use for storage.

1. Storage Stairs

Stairs are some of the most overlooked spaces in our homes. Often only used for their designed function, we think they need to do a little more. In our stair designs we like adding as many drawers and cabinets as we can fit.

2. Bed Storage

We all shove away items under the bed, never to be seen again. Instead why not organize it? Our beds are made with storage in mind. The Dumbo Storage bed has everything drawers, cabinets, and even a trundle. A traditional platform bed can be elevated with under bed storage.

Our loft beds feature elaborate and customizable cabinets that allow you to walk underneath the bed and have everything you need in reach. In some cases we’ll attach a storage unit at the end of a bed to create a nook.

Stack three or more together for a real built in look. These modular units can be configured as you need and can include any combo of open shelving, drawers, doors, bench or added desk.

Our bookshelves are versatile and can fit in any nook. They’re adjustable in depth to fit your home. Some as small as 12”.
