Every home has its own clutter hotspot, so include small-scale storage solutions to tame all those random odds and ends. 

Source contemporary-style organisers and compact units to slot effortlessly into unused areas and corners.

Free up floor space with wall hung shelving

Free-up floor space by opting for wall-mounted shelves, tabletops and wall units. Leaving floors clear creates an illusion of space and will make a room feel bigger.  

Fill wasted wall space with a sleek run of storage. Swap traditional bedside cabinets for neat wall-hung shelving, and use overhead units for any extra clutter.

Save space with a column unit

Add an extra layer of bathroom storage with this cleverly designed column unit that conceals the shelves and everything on them when viewed front-on.

Take storage up a level with a slimeline ladder shelf or tiered shelving unit. They work in any room, space or alcove - simply prop up against a wall or shift around a room.
