Small Spaces: 10 Storage Solutions That Do More Than One Job

When space is hard to find in a small home, consider multipurpose storage to make the most of the tight space. These double-duty storage solutions that do more than one job should help you along.

1. Console cabinet that is also a coffee table

Part of the TV console cabinet is mobile (castors were added at the bottom) so they can function as a side or coffee table in the living room whenever there is a need.

2. Bookshelf that is also a sliding door

A single-purpose bookshelf can take up a lot of unnecessary wall space, especially when square footage is already cramped. Placing it by the door by having it double as the entrance will help to free up some vertical room.

3. Cat ladders that are also a media wall storage
