Scandi-inspired storage secrets that are guaranteed to elevate your home

Making storage stylish can be a tough task, especially when you live in a smaller space. However, if we are being honest, it does not seem to matter how big or small your living space is, there is never enough storage space. Achieving a minimalistic, open-plan area is much harder to achieve than one would think, especially when you have children. With your little one comes toys, more furniture and supplies. It is vital for your home to feel like an inviting, put-together space which is enjoyable to live in.

The following Scandi storage solutions combine functionality, style and aesthetics to create an ideal living space, while still celebrating minimalism.

Storage For Your Little One’s Space

First up, is CLM Home’s Vintage Dresser Compactum. This is the perfect addition to your child’s bedroom or playroom. Not only do its drawers make a great storage space, but it can also be transformed into a changing table if you add Vox’s Oak Vintage Changer (which fits perfectly).  A piece of furniture which stores the essentials of your little one, makes for convenient nappy changing and when your baby grows up, it can be converted into a retro dresser. Aesthetically, it will fit almost any room due to its neutral and soft pastel colours. 

Another great piece of furniture for creating more storage in your little one's room, is the Tuli Toddler Table. This table is durable and child-friendly. Not only is it cute to look at, but it has a generous storage cubby underneath the table top.

If you are looking for a more general collection of furniture that doubles as storage, we encourage you to check out the Stige Kids Furniture Collection. From bed frames to ladders and desk cabinets to bookcases, this collection will transform your child’s bedroom. It will not only have an impact on the way it looks, but also how much you will be able to secretly store in there.

Neutral is the New Black

If you are looking for neutral storage of all shapes and sizes that can aesthetically and spatially fit into any room, look no further than the Balance Furniture Range. Every product in this collection is either black, white, light grey or graphite, meaning they are easily adaptable. It is also a build it your own system, you can combine the boxes with a base shelf and bookshelves (long or short) to create your own customised furniture piece, all without the use of screws or bolts, since they are connected by anti-slip mats applied to each piece's corners.

Whether you are looking for an open medium box, an open larger box or a closed box for storage, the Balance Range has it all. In order to create space for more storage in your home, while still trying to keep the Scandi-inspired minimalism aesthetic, you cannot go wrong with products like the ones mentioned above.
