Image from Apartment Therapy Storage and organization shouldn't be mutually exclusive concepts. In fact, when space is at a premium (we're looking at you studio apartment, loft, dorm, starter home) the key to maximizing space is finding storage in places where it wasn't before. Here are a few tips: Console Style Image from Style at Home Placed along the hall, behind the sofa or as a shallow desk in tight spaces, console tables with drawers are a perfect receptacle for unsightly clutter. Keep it simple by designating a specific purpose for each drawer...and stick to the system.  Think Lofty (with Shelves) Image from April & May Studio High shelves are an absolute must above fridges, bathroom vanities, doorways and in closets. By extending your shelving to the ceiling, you'll gain critical storage space for those seldom used items around the house. Have a Few Hangups   Troy Hanger Old Silver with Aged Brass Pendant , Possini Euro Design White Flower Acrylic Pendant Chandelier , Raindrop Glass Chrome Mini Pendant Light Maximize what floor and surface space you have by getting rid of table and floor lamps and replace them with hanging pendant lights (such as the one in the room pictured at the top of this post). There are tons of looks, from antiqued industrial to sleek contemporary glass designs on the market these days. Okay, we admit, this last one wasn't necessarily a storage tip, but it's a space-saver nonetheless. Images: Apartment Therapy , Style at Home , April & May Studio
