When storage is limited, items without a home end up in piles on the floor and every other surface. Visible storage solutions like boxes, jars and baskets often add to the clutter problem and can make your space look messy.

So what’s the solution? Hidden storage, multifunction and transformable furniture are the answer. Think clever double duty pieces; smart, well thought out purchases will help hide life’s necessities giving your space a clean minimalist feel. Let your sofa, artwork or great view be the star of the show!

Here are our picks for apartment living. And the good news is everything is available in Australia…(the last item on our list is a teaser of the future and not yet available but stay tuned).

The simplest solution is always the best. If you eat or work at your coffee table then why are you leaning over it, have the table lift up towards you. Dual lift top opens to lap level towards you and sideways towards another. This is the ultimate in living room efficiency!

Bed with Storage

The benefits of under bed storage are numerous; extra closet space, mattress stability, emergency clutter control and keeping dust to a minimum. Those without storage under their bed are all too familiar with getting down low to either retrieve a lost item that has rolled under there (Murphy’s Law is usually it’s in the hardest spot to get to). Under bed storage will certainly cut down on the clutter and help you achieve that minimalist design atheistic .

Wall Mount Drying Rack

Space Saving Wall Mount Drying Rack $109 (small)  or $136 (large) from Improvements Catalog. Photo Credit: Improvements Catalog.

Laundries are not known for being spacious even in the largest of homes. It is one room in the house that can always do with strategic purchases to assist with organisation and getting your chores done efficiently.

Space saving and makes use of what would normally be a blank wall in the laundry (Unless of course you would prefer to hang your Sidney Nolan in there!).

All In One Robotic Furniture System

One room, a hundred ways. The Jetsons fictional and functional home of the future just got one step closer to reality. Guided by the principal that interior space, particularly in high-density urban areas, has become too expensive to be static and unresponsive, Ori’s breakthrough innovation, technology and design create dynamic environments that act and feel as though they are substantially larger.

You can’t buy Ori Systems off the shelf in Australia at the moment; currently they work with property and real estate developers in the USA for installation in apartments but stay tuned for what’s to come.
