With the exception of those blessed with a surplus of closet space, storage is an issue for most people, especially if you live in a small apartment. We love spotting unexpected solutions to the problem...
• 1 dp2r uses bright red lockers for media storage.
• 2 B, Joe & Rachael's bathroom has built-in storage above the shower.
• 3 Jacob and Laurie made their floating media center from IKEA kitchen cabinets.
• 4 Using an antique cabinet, Christy and John transformed an alcove into a bar.
• 5 Dave and Amy built a platform for their bed with built-in bookshelves.
• 6 Luca's small home is full of built-ins that hide and reveal.
• 7 Shauna and Stephen's color-coded craft station is a work of art in itself.
• 8 Jay's built-ins act as a room divider, headboard, bookshelf, and pantry!
