While a tiny home comes with many advantages like low energy use and easy maintenance, storing things in the right places can be quite a challenge. Sometimes, your stuff can make you feel like you can never have enough space. 

A possible solution? Storage items. From baskets and boxes to shelves and organizers, such can help you make the most of every corner of your place without compromising design. If you need some ideas, you might want to consider these tips and tricks from IKEA Philippines’ Pinterest page, which can help you maximize your storage room and even put up more.

You can also make use of storage-and-display combinations. “Things that tend to get cluttered can be placed out of sight while your favorite objects can be showcased behind glass doors,” as per the Swedish home furnishing brand, adding that aside from practicality, it also “tells a story about yourself.”
