4 Creative Storage Solutions

We all want more storage space in our homes. No matter how much storage we have there never seems to be enough space to store all those shoes, toys, magazines, etc.

Using wooden crates as a storage solution is a great way to add real character and a bit of vintage to a room. These versatile storage boxes can be used to create a variety of storage solutions.

To give you some ideas we’ve put together a list of our 4 favourite creative storage solutions that are not only attractive but practical too!

Vintage vibe bedside crate tables

Add a touch of vintage to your bedroom and stack up crates to use as bed side tables. Store books and tablets on the lower shelves, phones and alarm clocks on the higher shelves.

Creative Storage Solution Crates

Farmers market style planters

Line wooden crates with hessian or plastic lining. Fill with compost and plant with your favourite bulbs, flowers or herbs to create a spectacular seasonal garden display. Think tulips and daffodils for spring. Geraniums and Lavender for summer.  When not being used as a planter your crate is ideal for storing garden tools.

Farmers Market Crates

Artistic shelving

Turn crates on their side and ends to create a really unique shelving unit. Fill with framed photos of your family and friends, favourite ornaments, plants and books.
