Creative Storage Solutions for Small Homes

Six unexpected storage spaces

Last year, I had the pleasure of collaborating with designer Stephanie Stokes on her first book, Elegant Rooms That Work: Fantasy and Function in Interior Design, just released by Rizzoli last spring. It not only offers a window into sophisticated, classically grounded style (Stephanie’s signature), but also provides a cache of useful information for imaginative, upscale storage solutions; practical furniture arrangements; and other elements that make the most out of every quarter inch of space a room has to offer. I’ve been inspired to adopt some of these solutions in my own modest Westchester home. Here are six creative storage solutions you’re going to want to consider, too.

Jorge S. Arango is an interior-design writer, editor, and stylist who lives in Mohegan Lake. His work has appeared in, among others: Metropolitan Home, House & Garden, Elle Décor, Robb Report, Luxe, Traditional Home, Interiors Magazine, and several international design publications. He is co-author, with various designers, of five books, most recently Elegant Rooms That Work (Rizzoli, 2013). This fall will see the publication of a sixth book, Artistic License, written with “billionaire’s designer” Geoffrey Bradfield.
