At last, spring is here. It’s the season of new life – the days are longer, brighter and everything is that bit more colourful.

After a hectic winter period, now is the perfect time to give your home a new lease of life by cleaning, tidying and getting everything back in order. A key element to any spring clean is your storage furniture. Get it right and it provides the perfect space for everything in your home, making the whole clean-up process quicker and easier.

So, where the best place to start? Read on as we look at 4 key considerations when choosing storage solutions for your home.

1. Where did I leave the…?

Everything needs a place in your home. But quite often, it’s the small things that get forgotten about. The result is hours spent looking for keys, credit cards or loose documents over the course of the year.

If this sounds familiar, console tables are a great option for extra storage. Their narrow depth means they’re compact enough to fit into any hallway space, with several small compartments providing a home for all your daily essentials. The Shalstone console table even has two small cupboards for extra storage.

2. Hidden storage

Among all the stylish drawers, cupboards and shelves, there’s also plenty to be said for hidden storage.

Whether you need to hide away your dining table accessories or board games, the Windsor supper table achieves this in style. With an abundant internal storage space underneath a lifting table top, you can increase in your storage space without losing any living space. Available in four finishes, the table’s lifting top is also useful for working or eating, providing its own higher surface when opened.

3. Hidden flexibility

As well as hidden storage, furniture can also provide hidden flexibility.

Extending dining tables – like the large Windsor extending table – are the perfect example. The table seats 4-6 when closed but can be extended to seat 8-10. Its three extension leaves can be easily stored away within the table when not required, with a medium extending table also available to seat 4-6 and 6-8 when extended.

4. Tailor storage in every room

Plenty of homeowners focus on the living room or kitchen for their storage needs, but other rooms around the house are equally important. Take the bedroom, for instance. This is where most of us keep clothes, care products and endless duvet sets. If you’re not careful, it can easily get stuffed under the bed – out of sight, out of mind.
