Furniture that Doubles as Extra Storage Space

Organized living space with furniture

As spacious as your apartment is here in Fairfax, VA, it’s easy for your home furnishings and items to expand as time goes on. Make room for each item to have a home by trying out furniture storage this summer. Today on the blog we have a few ideas you can try to add a bit of extra space, functionality, and style to your apartment.



A bookshelf would be a wonderful addition to any room in your apartment. Use your bookshelf to store your books, vases, small plants, and trinkets. We love modern bookcases, but we don’t like using them just so we can stuff the shelves. Style your bookcase like a pro to make it a valuable staple of your room.



Ottomans are multi-functional and decorative; when you put one in your home, you’re really using the most of your space. You can use an ottoman to complete the design of a room, to add space for resting your feet, to add extra seating to a room, and to give you a place to put blankets and pillows you don’t have room to keep on the couch. Find a storage ottoman suited to your needs and wants this month. Wayfair has a few options that we absolutely love!


Cabinets and Wardrobes

Sometimes you have things to store that you don’t want to display. Cabinets, wardrobes, and armoires come to the rescue for these types of items. Depending on the style and type of piece, you can also use these furniture options to store things like scrapbooks, DVDs, CD cases, files, or coats. Overstock has plenty of options for armoires, chests, wardrobes, and shoe cabinets you may enjoy.
