Finding places for all accent items in your living room, scattered cushions, throws and magazines can be challenging, especially if you're don’t have a lot of space.

It takes quite a bit of creativity to really find a space that's brimming with storage solutions. But sometimes, all you need is just a couple of baskets. In any case, it would be great to finally have the dedicated space you need to store all of your stuff. We've got your back, keep scrolling to discover some living room storage ideas that will guide and inspire you.
1. It’s all about baskets.
We're all like to literally throw our throws willy-nilly around the living room, but there's a cool easy way to keep them in the same place — baskets. Place one next to your couch, the side table, or by the stairs to quickly and easily stash your magazines. We particularly love this modern, woven option in a living room.
2. Use a ladder as a shelf.
A ladder shelf (or any shelf for that matter — ladder just looks cool) is a perfect living room storage idea suitable for displaying small objects for all to see. Tuck it alongside the sofa to showcase the vases, books, and other tiny treasures.
3. Put storage in unexpected spots.
Creativity is a must, particularly in a diminutive living room, and you need to think out-of-the-box to find space for your boxes (or other stuff). For example, take a look underneath your seating — it might just be a treasure trove of space to squirrel things away. In this living space belonging some ingenious storage are put below a bench.
The space around the TV.

You can easily put shelves around your TV and cabinets underneath it. This will be a perfect place for display items, plants, and books
5. Create cozy built-ins.
Even if you're working with a small space, you can always find a cranny or two that will accommodate built-in shelving. In this living room, well-loved built-in shelving takes up residence in the corner and holds small essentials and pretty decor.
6. Incorporate floor-to-ceiling cabinetry.
Kitchens and bathrooms shouldn't have all the fun — you can bring storage-solving cabinets into your living room and make them look chic in the process. In this fresh-meets-rustic, upper and lower cabinets in oh-so-light wood are functional and flawless. Bonus points for adding a nook to hold firewood, too.
