An entryway is an obvious choice when it comes to adding storage.

With built-in cabinets, you’ll have space for your shoes, your umbrella, and all the other miscellaneous knick-knacks that tends to accumulate at your entryway.

Consider adding a mirror for last-minute outfit checks, and a small bench or seating area so that you can sit down to put on your shoes!

Your TV area is another great option when it comes to storage.

By building in floor-to-ceiling cabinets, you get a ton of storage that you can use for household essentials, your kids’ toys and books, and more.

Play around with a mix of closed-door storage and open displays, so that you have a space for photo frames, plants, or any other memorabilia that you want to display.

3. This Other Built-In TV Console

Same concept, different style.

This TV console has a completely different look and feel to the previous one, with this one being more contemporary and modern as compared to the Scandinavian vibes we get from the previous one.

This TV console also comes with recessed shelves, again to display home decor and other memorabilia.

An easy way of carving out more storage space in your study?

Instead of using a slim desk that consists of just a tabletop and legs, use one of those desks that comes with drawers or storage below the table.

You can either build-in the desk to make use of odd angles or corners (if any), or buy an off-the-shelf desk with storage below.

6. This Kitchen With A Kitchen Island

Homeowners typically associate a kitchen island with a place where they can prep food and entertain guests.

But that’s not all a kitchen island does – it also gives you more storage below.
