We know that for every storage problem, there is a stylish storage solution!

However, it can often be difficult and expensive to find space to fit storage units or have custom ones made for your home. But don't fret! EZ Living Furniture has come up with some easy & stylish storage solutions so that you can store away unwanted clutter (or not feeling so guilty about buying more shoes).
EZ Living Style: Ottoman Beds
Funnily enough, the term 'Ottoman' comes from the Ottoman Empire when this style of furniture made its way to Europe during that 18th Century. The main attraction of an ottoman bed base is their storage capability. Beneath the mattress, you'll find an easy access to the entire space within the ottoman bed base! This is a perfect place to store away unwanted clothes, shoes, books or any clutter in your Bedroom. Think of it as adding a second wardrobe hidden under your bed.

How does it work? (No it's not rocket science) There are two main types of Ottoman – static and hydraulic. Static Ottomans can be opened via drawers and cabinets located on the side of the base. Then there’s the powerful gas-lift hydraulic option, which when activated lifts the entire mattress up, giving you complete access to the entire storage area available.

EZ Living Style: Hall Stands
The hallway is a gateway to your home and therefore it can often accumulate a lot of unwanted clutter quickly. Hallways are often narrow so it can be difficult to find the space for storage. Hall stands are a very smart and easy way to improve the spacial capacity of your home especially when they include a mirror as they also shine light into your now de-cluttered hall.
