Storage in the home is always an issue, regardless of the size of your living space. There always seems like there's too little space to store all your goods, especially in a tiny home. Well, in this homify feature, we look at 11 easy to incorporate, simple and efficient ideas that will enhance your layout, keeping your interior tidier and uncluttered too. Look out for some inspirational tips and tricks that can be incorporated in your own house.

1. For the kids

A bunk bed may be the ideal choice when your kids are sharing a bedroom, but how about including some storage in each and every corner of the bed unit, taking advantage of the wall and freeing up the other corners of the room.

2. Groceries

If you are one to always have groceries, then you'll need to have adequate storage for all your items, so think about a simple pantry to keep your kitchen in perfect shape.

3. To the ceiling

Build your shelves to reach just below your ceiling and maximise storage.

4. Under the stairs

Include shelving beneath your stairs and you'll always have some hidden corners to store your linens and winter clothes.

5. TV unit bookcase

Divide your home with a simple bookcase that secures you TV too.

6. Shoes
