Large tote bags like these, are brilliant for storing a wide range of things from children’s toys to nightwear, shoes, and towels. If you want to store yarn, definitely go for a waterproof bag. Just in case. There was an incident with coffee and I still get emotional talking about it.
They’re also highly convenient as they can be easily hung from pegs on the back of the door (check these out for pretty!) meaning they won’t take up much excess room at all.
Furthermore, tote bags are lightweight and easy to carry around so can be taken with you on family holidays without much problem!
I own a gigantic version of this from approximately It stores pretty much.. all of my pens. Which is ideal. If you need to have all of your office supplies in one place, instead of everywhere else in your home, grab one of these mini carousels!
I’ve been following Torie Jayne for years and I’m sure you can see why!
Her little sewing corner is absolutely beautiful and full of my favourite pastel shades.
Go up the wall with shelving and use acrylic drawers and organization to store your supplies.
Torie Jayne also has a giant dresser for her supplies and uses hooks and little wire baskets to store her fabric. Are we even going to talk about those Trunks?! Holy crap! They’re amazing. I’m in love with those colours. They’re my go-to shades for colour meditations.
This craft room is absolutely stunning! I’m obsessed with Raskog carts and the fact that this one has been utilised for sewing is ideal. Finding somewhere to store a sewing machine can be a genuine pain, this portable solution is fab.

Did you know you could use a plastic bag organizer to store rolls of vinyl?!
You could use it to store contact paper, gift wrap, wallpaper or even giant knitting needles! Total genius move by Silhouette School
Pastel shades are my favourite so this is a complete wall of happiness for me. Once you find the crates that you want to use, stock up on chalk paint!

THE SECRET COMPARTMENT CHAIR
Furniture takes up quite a bit of floor space, so if you’re thinking about buying new chairs, a bed or suite, look for designs with plenty of hidden storage. They’re my true secret weapon.
Sofas with storage underneath the seats are great for keeping everything from books to newspapers, and beds with pull out drawers often have the capacity to store spare bed sheets and pillow covers.
You can always customise your own chair like this fabulous little kiddos chair by Craptastic Katie.
Don’t forget to add handles like these so you can pull it in and out easily! I love this idea and would love to create some units like those for the cupboard under our stairs. It has truly inspired me. Thanks Katie from Smile Like You Mean It Blog! These are my absolute favourite handles, they look so fancy.

There are many storage solutions for small spaces, but if you are pushed for space it’s well worth putting up some sturdy shelves.
Shelves or crates can be placed on any empty wall and have the ability to hold everything from photographs and ornaments to DVDs and folders.
What’s more, when you’re thinking about where to put the shelves, don’t forget about wasted wall space which often goes unused.
These fold down desks are hugely popular and it’s very easy to see why. You can use them for crafting, homework or even as a base station in your kitchen if you don’t have much room.
Another blogger that I’m a huge fan of is Messy Jessie.
Her quilting blog is incredible!!! It’s hard not to adore her little sewing space with lots of organization!
I’m a huge fan of modular storage, especially the one from Decor by the Sea Shore!

Personally, I wouldn’t be bothered to create one of these because I’m incredibly lazy but it’s a really good tutorial.

Going up the walls and using a giant pegboard is a great idea for utilizing every available inch of space. I freakin love that pegboard AND I have that little spinning stationery carousel. It’s no longer available to purchase but this is a similar version if it had been hit by a ray gun and made smaller.
