A clean and well-organised home feels fresh and inviting. Yet between busy weekdays and hectic schedules (not to mention remote learning!), the clutter and chaos can build up quickly. We’ve got 6 savvy storage solutions to get your home sorted.
A sideboard buffet is a great storage solution, whether used in the kitchen, dining room or even entry hall. Available in a range of styles and sizes with cupboards, shelves and drawers, you’ll find plenty of room to store glassware, board games and that precious bottle of Moët you’ve been saving for a special occasion.
HOT TIP: Pop a catch-all bowl on top for keys, USBs and EarPods.
Whether you’re a bibliophile or simply love putting your photos and vases on display, a library shelving unit is an all-in-one storage solution as it has both open shelving as well as cupboards and/or drawers. Your books, plants and other precious pieces can be put on show, while messy bits and bobs can be tidily tucked away behind closed cupboard doors.
Multifunction is key in creating an organised and clutter-free home, so think about areas you can double up on utility. Kitchen islands come in a range of styles so if you’re updating you space, consider an island bench with cupboards to hide away plates, cookbooks or other kitchen essentials.

Coffee tables that double as blanket boxes just make sense. They offer practical surface space for magazines and remotes while also hiding a glut of valuable storage space within. Use your trunk to store your winter throws and seasonal cushions, or stash away the kids’ teddies and Tonka trunks to let it double as a toy box.
HOT TIP: Use your trunk to store your extra bedding for overnight guests.
While most of us are guilty of hanging onto too much stuff that no longer serves a purpose, many of us also have a selection of very precious pieces we want to keep and cherish. Filter the treasures from the trash and invest in a lovely display case. You can showcase your prized trinkets and keep them safe behind glass.
HOT TIP: For a curated look, arrange your pieces by colour palette or theme.
Provide plenty of room for your towels and toiletries with a freestanding bathroom vanity. Available in a range of styles — from French provincial to coastal — vanities can be a true statement piece while also hiding away all the messy cotton buds and creams that can clutter your limited bathroom surface space.
