Excuse us while we fantasize about these next-level storage solutions.
An Ironing Board Hideout
Who knew there was an even more secretive place to keep your ironing board than the back of your door? Here, it rolls out on a drawer in a laundry room and stays out of view when not in use.

A Knife Drawer

A Perfect Oversized Kitchen Island
Sure, the pale blue paint color is pretty, but the nook that stools tuck into and the crafty storage solutions (there are shelves for cookbooks on one side, while cabinets are on the other) are what we’ll remember forever.

Laundry Basket Drawers
The easiest way to keep your laundry room clean is to tuck your bins of dirty clothes out of sight. These three extra-deep drawers even offer enough space to separate by cycle — colors, darks, and whites! We’re swooning.

A Grab-And-Go Cabinet
Sometimes you just need a spot to store all of the essentials — salt, pepper, olive oil, the works. This pull-out space next to the oven and stove will fill that hole in your life.

A Movie Library
So many DVDs, so little space. If you’re an avid movie watcher, this is the two-in-one you need: It’s a movie viewing area with enough storage for your entire library — both on top of the bed and below it.

Deep and short, toe-kick drawers are the perfect size for cookie sheets and Tupperware. We bet that wasted space under your cabinets is totally bugging you now.

A Coffee Cabinet
Can you imagine how sweet it would be to have a space dedicated to your favorite source of caffeine? The pot rolls out for easy pouring, mugs live on top, and beans hide out in the drawer below.

Smart Stair Storage
Awkward under-the-stair space usually goes unused, but here a savvy homeowner add built-in storage that holds odds and ends that usually don’t have a home. Brilliant.

A Microwave Cabinet
While we admit that microwaves are an essential part of any kitchen, let’s be honest: They’re not pretty at all. This stately kitchen devotes an entire cabinet to keeping the appliance out of view. Plus, the counter space below it is ideal for prepping your leftovers before heating.
An Office Island
Why should kitchens have all the fun? Here a giant island in an office has built-in shelves that are the ideal height to hide papers, printers, and all your work essentials.

Food Storage Drawers
Since onions and potatoes shouldn’t be stored together (they make each other spoil faster) this pull-out drawer with separate baskets for each is a life-save. Meanwhile a drawer with a lid keeps bread from going stale.
