Small Space Seeking Storage

I just got the new Ikea catalogue in the mail and it showed rows of glass jars with beautiful pickeled vegetables, and it got my OC organizational juices flowing.  Ikea has always been one of my favorite go-to stores for my organizational needs.  European homes tend to be smaller scale then those in America, especialy the apartments, so they are always in need of creative and attractive storage solutions.  As am I!  The owner of a small home with very limited cabinet and closet space, most of my “storage” is exposed.  Below are some attractive options for storage and organization.

Leave these boxes natural or paint them a fun accent color for an extra pop.

I have inherited a love of baskets from my mother, and I use them all over the house for storage.  There is something about hand made things that just adds warmth.

If you do not have drawer space, Ikea’s wall hanging storage is a life saver, whether it is in your Kitchen, Bathroom, or Office.

This is one of my all time favorite space savors that I have purchased from Ikea.  I am big into scarves and this allows me find them all in one place.
