1. Shelves on a wall in lines By hanging your shelving units on the wall in this way, you’re creating more storage whereas one large bookshelf in the same space might go halfway up the wall, whereas these can go as high as you like. Plus, by spacing the units out vertically, you’re creating extra shelves: simply place items on top of the units, as well as inside them such as more books or display items for a less cluttered look.
2. Shelves under the stairs It’s like backward stairs! If you have that awkward triangular “Harry Potter” storage cupboard under your stairs, this is a new way to make the best use of its shape: build shelves underneath each step, creating a smaller staircase in the process, to stash away your games, toys, paperwork, bulk bathroom buys… anything and everything you want to banish from view, leaving more space on the ground for bulkier items like vacuum cleaners and suitcases.
