Space Saving Storage Benches for Small Spaces

If you are short on space in your home or apartment, choosing furnishings that are dual-purpose will help keep your place uncluttered. Storage benches, like the wooden benches below, offer alternate seating while providing the extra storage space you need.

Craftsman Gossip Storage Bench

Kudos go to this novel bench/storage/table combination for its genius space saving features. The Craftsman Gossip Bench from Home Decorators Collection offers handcrafted Arts and Crafts styling of its rich wood construction in a dark oak stain. The bicast leather cushion offers comfortable seating while the tabletop gives you a handy place to sit a cup of coffee. It boasts five drawers and four wicker baskets to store anything from gardening shoes to magazines.

Winslow Shoe Bench

The Winslow Bench from Home Decorators Collection offers a more formal take on the storage bench and throws in a twist—storage for 10 pairs of shoes! The ornately carved panels slide to reveal storage on each side. Three drawers offer extra storage for smaller items. The upholstered seat provides a great place to put your shoes on as you run out the door. Solid wood construction is set off by any one of the rich finish options like Antique Cherry, Antique Oak, Ivory, Cream Leather or Tuscan (we love the cream leather) and topped by an upholstered cushion.

Do you live in a small space with limited storage? What storage options do you rely on? Let us know what's on your mind...
