Useful items such as jackets, hats, scarves and belts always seem to be the items that are left strewn in awkward positions around the house. Coats tend to find their way onto the nearest table or sofa, cluttering the living spaces and creating a mess. Time to put those items in their place. Install a funky or stylish coat rack in the entry hall to your home, or indeed in any room that would benefit from a little extra hanging storage, without compromising cupboard space.

If you aren’t fortunate to have built in wardrobes or a designated dressing space, you will want to seek out the best way to store your clothing—there are many different options on the market, but one of the oldest and most convenient ways to store clothes outside of a wardrobe, is a well-constructed and efficient chest of drawers. This example illustrates a stylish lowboy in a contemporary mid-century design that would assimilate into any décor or home design. To put the finishing touches on the space and integrate a chest of drawers into the bedroom, add a fashionable table lamp, some art and several cute home accessories.
