Space Savers: Floating Tables, Cabinets & Baskets

This home organization inspiration is all about getting furniture and storage off the floor. Using floating furniture (a.k.a. wall-mounted) saves precious real estate while providing much needed organization in tight spaces, left-over wall space and awkward corners. Floating furniture has gone way beyond the common ledges and shelves. Now, you find floating desks, cabinets, tables, baskets, books and even mini floating wine racks (photo 3).

Floating Cabinet, Credenza or Buffet: (Photo 1)
A combination of drawers and cabinets work great in the living room, dining room or even as a small dresser in a bedroom. It can be used to store belongings, serve food or drinks, and display accessories.

Floating Baskets: (Photo 2)
This is a lovely way of storing light weight items, adding warmth and texture while providing storage.

Floating Wine Rack: (Photo 3)
This is one of the smallest wine rack designs, great for small spaces. Little as it is, it still hangs glasses and stores wine. If this is too lean for you, it's easy to find floating wine racks that are three glasses deep. (This one is one glass deep).

Floating Entryway Table: (Photo 4)
This is the best solution for anyone with a small or narrow entryway. It may be lean, but it'll hold many of the things you need from an entryway table like keys, mail, gadgets, and bags or wallets. Add even more function by getting one with a drawer to hide clutter.

Floating Books: (Photo 5)
Perfect for the bibliophile, this is a beautiful way to display and store your latest reads. It keeps your most recent books handy, and you can even stack an accessory on top like a statuette, figurine, vase or picture frame.
