With spring set to ar­rive next week, what bet­ter time to clear out un­wanted items in the home and find new ways to im­prove your stor­age space.

Fo­cus on Fur­ni­ture stylish Melissa Gul­lifer said there were qual­ity fur­ni­ture pieces with built-in stor­age so­lu­tions to suit every room in the house.

“If you are dec­o­rat­ing a lounge room or liv­ing area, look for en­ter­tain­ment units with suit­able stor­age draw­ers,” Ms Gul­lifer said.

“Think about what you would put in there and check the height and width of the stor­age space so you can fit all your elec­tri­cal and en­ter­tain­ment de­vices.”

She said opt for cof­fee ta­bles, lamp or side ta­bles with in-built stor­age draw­ers.

“It’s a clever way to shop because you are look­ing for spe­cific pieces of fur­ni­ture that are not only great qual­ity, but of­fer the per­fect stor­age so­lu­tions for your home,” she said.

“Buf­fets are so func­tional and it’s amaz­ing how much you can ac­tu­ally fit in the cup­boards.

“Most buf­fets pro­vide gen­er­ously sized cup­boards and ad­justable shelves with plenty of room to store table­ware, napery, cut­lery, glass­ware and more.”

When it comes to stor­age in the bed­room, Ms Gul­lifer sug­gested shop­ping for beds with built-in draw­ers and shelves.

“Beds with built-in draw­ers are a smart choice for peo­ple who have small to medium-size bed­rooms,” she said.

Func­tional beds with stor­age draw­ers at the foot of the bed are a great op­tion, as of­ten they were large enough to fit in bulky items.

“It’s a clever way to hide clothes, blan­kets, cush­ions, sheets and pil­low cases,” Ms Gul­lifer said.
