Looking for more surface space with storage? A sofa table is a common furniture piece placed behind the open back of a sofa or sectional. Simply utilize its drawers and shelves to stow away blankets, board games, mail, and more. A common trend hitting the internet are sofa table bars and desks. Add some stools or dining chair to your sofa and you’ve got yourself an additional place to eat or study. These are great for small spaces like apartments if you don’t have room for a dining table or desk.

4. Etagere

A bathroom can be the most cluttered room in your house: drawers filled with toothpaste, cabinets filled with bathroom cleaners, and makeup spread across countertops. An etagere can store all these items without taking up any space! Place it behind your toilet and fill it with bathroom essentials so you can save the drawers and cabinets for bigger, more important things: extra toilet paper.
