With the new year, we have been going over our resolutions and getting started on making this year even better than the last! To start, I am going room by room and purging things we don’t use anymore, and finding efficient storage for what we are keeping. We’re starting with the living room. The tricky part is finding storage that I don’t hate. Most storage solutions come in the form of clear plastic bins or containers with snap-on lids. You know the kind i’m talking about. We don’t have very much closet space, so a lot of our stored items need to be out in the open, so we need good-looking, efficient storage — storage that doesn’t look like the typical storage. So I went on a quest to find a few, and I found some! Here are 7 trendy living room storage solutions I think you might like, too!
