They range from cool bike racks to surprising wine cellars and nifty little ideas for the kitchen. There is surely something here to inspire everyone! So come with us to explore 9 of the most innovative storage solutions. Enjoy…

1. Slide-out under-bed storage

It's no surprise that the space under the bed is a good storage space. But these sliding drawers will really encourage us to actually use that space properly.

2. Awkward spaces put to good use

Most standard bedroom storage revolves around hangers and shelves, but what about hats, handbags and awkward-sized objects? Well, the awkward space under the stairs is a great space to store these things. Check out this set up!

3. The perfect hidden wall storage

This wall-mounted shelf may appear deceptively simple at first glance, but consider just how fantastic it is to have an open shelf that actually hides all your unsightly items.

4. Wine cabinet under the stairs

A wine cellar adds a sense of decadence to any home. But what if you simply don't have the space? Use that space under the staircase. Some dramatic downlights will turn it into a prize feature in the home.

5. Magnetic spice holders

A magnetic wall in the kitchen can always be put to good use. You might even fill some metal jars with spices and simply store them on the wall. The clear covers mean that there's no need for labels either.

6. Narrow sliding kitchen cabinets

If you have a small kitchen, you probably also have some narrow spaces which are left unused. But with a narrow sliding cabinet, these tiny spaces can turn into the perfect places to store bottles and condiments.

7. Small decorative wall hooks

In the old days, wall hooks were big, chunky and kept to a straight line. But these new hooks are tiny and have a decorative appeal. The round shape also makes them just as functional as bigger fixtures. 

8. A display shelf for shoes

This is definitely one for shoe lovers! These ultra minimalist wall-mounted shelves are the perfect way to show off your favourite shoes. 

9. A bike rack

There's nothing worse than constantly tripping over a bike stored in the hallway. But this wall-mounted bike rack is seriously cool. It also has a shelf to store your bike helmet and gloves.

If you like the cool efficiency of clever design, you'll love this abode: Japanese chic meets Scandinavian cool in a family home.
