When you are faced with a small room, obviously you have to be really smart in storing your things. Every square inch should be utilized to the fullest without sacrificing too much space. However, you also don’t need to add a large closet or storage system just to meet your needs. Don’t worry, I’ve always believed that everyone has their own way of dealing with many household problems, especially when it comes to small space storage ideas.
If you’ve given up on where to put things, even if the walls are completely full, then there’s only one place and that’s to make a storage area behind the door. So the more you can think outside the box behind your door, the more clutter you can get rid of.
