      2. Get Creative With StorageMary Poppins’ signature carpetbag of tricks is comically roomy, filled with everything from a full-size hat stand to a potted plant to an antique wall mirror. “Never judge things by their appearance,” she tells the amazed Banks children in the movie. “Even carpetbags.”It’s good advice in general, but when it comes to storing a surprising amount of stuff in an unexpected place, that scene is particularly prescriptive. Something like a loft bed staircase that doubles as a chest of drawers, as seen in this London space, embodies the same sense of creativity and sneaky storage spirit. (Check local building codes for requirements on stair handrails in your area.) Other examples might be narrow pullout spice racks tucked between the stove and the cabinets, closet mirrors that open into jewelry boxes or guest beds that fold up into walls when not in use. Thinking outside the box (or outside the carpetbag) when it comes to keeping things organized around the house does more than tackle the clutter — in some cases it can add an almost magical dose of personality too.

      4. Fit drawers into the side of your staircase. One space-saving trick is to use the area under a staircase — including the steps themselves — as storage. This might not work in a traditional interior, or if you already have storage under the stairs, but if you’re building in a new staircase, or steps between levels in an open-plan space, consider this savvy idea. Here, a custom solution has been built around a chest of drawers. As these steps are going up to a loft, they probably don’t count as stairs under zoning regulations, which explains the lack of handrail. (For most stairs, you will need a rail on at least one side.)

      … and add a dresser. This storage staircase has drawers accessible from the space in the lower part of the room, as well as a built-in dresser. Each storage element cleverly fits within the run of the staircase.
