If you want your home to look good, you need to keep things tidy and storage solutions come in very handy – after all, they do say ‘a place for everything and everything in its place’ is the key to an ordered house.
We’ve picked out ten of the best storage solutions that will actually add to the stylishness of your home – it’s time to stash that stuff!

In almost every room of the house, particularly the kitchen and the bathroom, you’ll often find that there are random bits and bobs around making the place look untidy. This handy wall tidy, priced at £4.95 from the DotComGiftShop, is a great way to keep everything out of sight but within reach and the spotty design will brighten up your space – you’ll probably end up wanting one for every room in the house.
2. Asda Hampton White Ottoman
Sometimes you just run out of storage space – ottomans are a great way to add a vintage-style touch without doing anything permanent.
