Design Ideas for Maximum Storage for Your Entire Home

In today’s busy world, most of us lead busy lives and home organization may fall by the wayside with everything we have going on. Thankfully there are numerous ways to add storage solutions around your home without skimping on the aesthetics!

Get inspired by some of our favorite projects on the gallery. Then, give us a call to see what amazing things we can build for you. Until then, here are the Cabinet Chic’s favorite ideas to maximize storage throughout your entire home!

Lavish Living Spaces

There are ample ways to infuse storage into your living room, entryway, and shared spaces. One of our favorite ideas is to design a functional mudroom space where you can store shoes, jackets, dog leashes, hats, and mail. If you want these items to be truly out of sight, consider installing beautiful built-in mudroom lockers painted in a complimentary color to the other walls in your house.  

The best part about having mudroom lockers is that you can design them to fit your lifestyle.

Consider including:

  • Hooks
  • Catch-all baskets
  • Shelves  
  • Drawers  

You can even have a bench built into your mushroom lockers so you can sit to put on shoes or stow away rain boots and rarely used items.

Tailoring Your Kitchen

Storage solutions abound in the kitchen from custom cabinetry, alternatives to lazy Susans, and built-in breakfast nooks, you can really take advantage of your space by thinking outside the box.  

There is nothing like a
functional & well-organized kitchen.

We love to include custom kitchen islands in our client’s kitchen renovations because they offer numerous spaces for hidden storage.  

With a custom kitchen island you can:

  • Match its design and colors to your main kitchen cabinets  
  • Distinguish it with a contrasting bold color  
  • Create  multiple levels, one for working, one for dining (or even have double islands if your kitchen is grand enough)
  • Include drawers, cabinets, and open shelving for organization  
  • Outlets to plug in appliances
  • Pull out trash and recycling bins  

Beautifully Designed Bathroom

Whether you have a small bathroom or a spacious oasis, there are many ways to add storage solutions to the bathroom!  

We like to add unique storage spaces in between mirrors, on the wall by the bathtub, and in any nooks and crannies that we can find! We can even design a completely custom vanity that will truly maximize your space and any unique features that your bathroom might have.

Stunning Spare Bedroom

A custom-built murphy bed can take a guest room from an office space or place to exercise to a comfortable space to sleep in just a few seconds.  

The best part? You can customize your murphy bed to fit your needs and design aesthetic. You can even include a pull-out nightstand!  

Custom options could include:

  • Single, double, and queen sizes
  • Could be designed as an individual unit or part of a larger custom built-in cabinetry unit
  • Open and closed storage options such as shelving or cabinets for pillows and blankets in the headboard

Murphy beds enhance the spare rooms by adding beauty and functionality without taking up too much space.

Unique Spaces, Customized For You

If you have pets, don’t forget to add a unique space just for them too! Create a pet-friendly space in your home by including:

  • A pet bathing station (perfect for mudroom spaces!)
  • Built-in pet food storage
  • Hidden litter box in a custom cabinet
  • Built-in pet beds
  • An enclosed cat patio
  • Pet lockers to house leashes, food, and toys  

Further, if you are a bookworm, instead of letting your books pile up all around the house, consider installing luxurious built-in cabinetry and shelving for your books.  

Get creative with it! You can install bookshelves around a doorway, on the side of a staircase, or on a dedicated wall in your office. Just don’t forget comfortable built-in bench seating so you can cozy up with a good book!
