When selecting the furnishing items for home, don’t only focus on the beauty. Considering your daily need, purchase the furniture and decors that are pretty and functional (easy to clean; create hidden storage, multi-scenario usage).
2. Consider the multi-functions of the home furniture.
Think of the multitask feature of the furniture that you tend to buy. Some pieces like mirrored cabinet, storage ottoman, storage bed, can provide both its original function and storing feature together.
3. Try to customize home furnishing.
Customizing is the best for you since everything is designed by expert interior designers, based on your home space. However, it is not suitable for all homes, especially for the slightly-remodeling, replacing just a piece of furniture.
4. Make full use of the corner space.
Some spaces seem wasteful, e.g.: corner space, the back of the door, hallway, the space under beds/sofas, while those space can well add extra storage in home. Therefore, try these ways: use the organizers and hooks to improve the storage capacity behind doors; install corner cabinet; purchase storage sofa or beds.
5. Mount the furniture to the wall.
The above-cabinet storage is the wonderful home improvement storage idea. Try to hang the furniture items on the wall to save the floor space and it would let you easily clean.
6. Choose the decorative items with storing function.
Generally, every family would place some albums, small ornaments to decorate the interior space. It is suggested to find a decorative item with storing function. For example, magazine storage rack, album storage with stylish design, etc.
