Clever Hidden Storage Ideas

When remodeling a space the first thought is usually how it will look in the end. The layout, the finishes and lighting are what comes to mind. However, how the space functions is equally as important and can dramatically improve how you feel about a space.

After the initial decision of how you want a space to look, think about little things that can make it function better for you. Need some inspiration? Try these great ideas on for size.

Need extra workspace but not all the time? Try a workspace that pulls out from an island or counter.
