Fed up of treading on LEGO, toy cars and other assorted toys? Perhaps it’s time for a storage chest or toy box for your child’s room? Our storage chests come in a range of styles and formats, but they’ll all do the same thing - give you a place to deposit toys and other items and keep the floor clean. Of course, you don’t have to use them just for toys. A storage chest can look just as good in your own room, positioned at the foot of the bed, or in a nook, keeping towels and bed linen clean and tidy. Storage baskets are also a good option and can fit neatly into the corner of a room when not needed.
Storage benches can do the same job as a storage chest but with the bonus of offering some extra seating around the home (and even in the garden with the outdoor models). Some have upholstered and padded lids, while others might need a cushion or two to make them comfier, but they look great in the living room or bedroom and offer a handy seat for when guests come to visit.
If a storage bench will take up too much room you can get storage footstools, ideal for keeping DVDs or magazines tidy in the living room and giving you somewhere to put your feet up when settling in for a bit of TV. If you have a mammoth collection of films and videogames though you might prefer some separate DVD storage or one of our TV units with storage.
These days you’ll find an increasing amount of furniture that has built-in storage, like ottoman beds that open up and give you a huge amount of space to store things under your mattress. And for something that will pull triple duty why not get a sofa bed with storage, so you have a comfy sofa, a bed for when guests come to stay, plus somewhere to keep items stashed safely.
