Exploit the eavesMake best use of otherwise dead eaves space with baskets and tubs for linen that slot in neatly.Loft rooms are typically one of the warmer spaces, so your linen should stay fresh as well as easily accessible.Tell us…What are your tips (or frustrations!) with storing linen in your home?

Bring on the basketsUse the rhythm of your roof supports to create niches for baskets or other portable storage, extending into the deepest reaches of the eaves. Tubs on wheels would work well here, too, allowing every centimetre of precious space to be easily accessed.
Make baskets work hardIf you don’t have the budget to invest in built-in furniture, but want to make the most of every last inch, try using baskets or wooden boxes for those awkward spaces that won’t accommodate any other type of furniture. It’s a cost-effective way to make the most of your space, and it looks cute, too.TELL US…Do you have any smart storage solutions in your loft? Share your tips and photos in the Comments below.
Be creative with storageLack of space, an awkward ceiling structure, budget constraints or style preference can all sometimes rule out built-in storage. This loft bedroom sports white cane storage baskets and trays ideal for bedding sets – love the look!
Think outside the boxAnother money-saving – and space-enhancing – option for eaves storage is to divide the area with posts and use pretty baskets, hampers, trunks or even vintage suitcases to stow away bits and pieces. Sturdy lidded cardboard boxes can be covered in wallpaper or wrapping paper, which has the added bonus of being changeable whenever you want to redecorate.
Tuck boxes into the eavesA loft conversion provides a valuable extra bedroom, but storage that’s tucked into the eaves can be tricky. Built-in cupboards can be hard to access, particularly if there aren’t ample doors. An alternative is to leave the space uncovered and fill it with cool white wicker baskets. They are easy to get into and set an informal, easy-going style.
