Furniture That Gives You Extra Space with Hidden Storage

Furniture with storage is multi-functional and lets you maximize your living space and lets you hide the clutter out of sight, and yet easily accessible.

Storage-friendly furniture is a great boon to those who live in small spaces, but it has its advantages in any kind of space.

We tend to collect a lot of stuff in the bedroom, books, magazines, piles of paper. It helps when bedroom furniture offers room for extra storage.

This slender nightstand from Hooker's Envision series offers plenty of storage. It has a drawer and two shelves, in addition to the top surface.

The kitchen is another place that is prone to clutter. It is great to have a table that not only provides a place to gather to round and eat, but offers extra storage as well.

The table base in Paula Deen's Kitchen Gathering table offers storage in its base. Another space saving feature is an extension leaf, which you only have to pull out when you need it.
