Ceiling Shelves – Put Some Extra Pounds on the Rack
The vertical space above our furniture usually goes unused. We can utilize this wall length to effectively enhance the storage space. For the bonus point, ceiling shelves look pretty awesome too.
Fix some wooden or glass shelves on the walls above the sofa set. Place the books, controllers, frames, and other things that are not frequently used. Add some book holders, delicate antiques, and one or two houseplants to complete the look. This way you can keep the mess off the ground and improve the aesthetic value of your interior as well. You can go for any shelves, but glass shelves have an exceptional class. So go for it!

You can use them to level up your interior game while also storing all this-and-that in the compartment inside.

Corner Shelving – Put Your Corners to the Right Use
As we are looking for spaces that are not used to their full potential, how can we forget about the corner?
The corners are typically rendered unused because of the curves and bends in the walls. The most common practice is to put some corner decor items to enhance the interior. But corners can serve a bigger purpose than just posing as some nook to place the huge vase. (Not that it doesn’t look great but we are saving space here, remember?)
Interior designers are putting special attention to the corners now. Furniture items and corner sofa sets are used to utilize the corners nowadays. Corner shelving is another way to put the nooks of the house to use. Install floating glass shelves at the corners. It will not only create some extra storage but give you a chance to display your decor items in a fun way.
Under the Stairs – Above-the-Line Storage Space
To keep the mess off the ground, we need to ensure the right utility of every space in our homes. Now think of the areas that go unnoticed in your home. Think hard!
You got it right, the space under the stairs.
There is usually enough space under the space but it cannot be used properly due to the bends and edges of the stairs. However, you can use it to contain things that are not used quite often. The space under the stairs can even be used for making a mini library, a reading room, or a small powder room. But hey, let’s just stick to storage enhancement.
You can either go for some racks and out a chair to turn the space into a pretty useful nook. Or you can make a cupboard and stuff it with the regular things.
Vanity Shelves – A Legit Space Booster
The bathroom is the place where we need to put quite a lot of things. But to make things difficult, bathrooms are usually small and don’t have enough storage compartments to hold all the toiletries. So we have to put them in the closet and take the essentials with us every time we go to the bathroom. (Just narrating some common scenarios)
But you can effectively boost the bathroom storage with some shelves. Some floating shelves and there you go!
