If storage has become a pain, start by editing and getting rid of excess items. Then choose the right products to maximize the storage in your home, taking advantage of every last inch of space. While storage products can be expensive, it’s possible to find what you need without it costing a fortune. 

Check out our round-up of nine fantastic small space storage buys below, and change up your lounge-and-live scenario forever! And if you're on a total small room revamp, make your space work harder with multifunctional furniture pieces.
