I have become unnaturally obsessed with furniture recently. Since I started investigating what's out there, I just can't stop browsing. I am discovering amazing space-saving contraptions and mind-blowingly inventive storage solutions all the time. I've always been interested in making the most of storage, ever since sharing a two bed flat with two teenagers and a baby. I don't think it will ever leave me, even if I lived in a mansion!
I would just have an awful lot of empty space, I could perhaps pass the time by organising my own living room flash mobs, or hosting bowling tournaments in the hallway. Either way, you can never have too much space and I'm going to continue my minimalist ways, even if my boat comes in and I have 29 rooms, one for each piece of furniture I own. It's just fascinating the length designers will go to, to save space in a room. Take this fantastic bunk bed ensemble. I would love this for my son's box room and so would he, he wouldn't have to make the bed, he could just hide it away! Also, the desk stays in the same position as it folds down, so he wouldn't have to move any of his, ahem, 'creative genius' when bedtime rolls around.
I know this is more of a swanky playroom option, but isn't it just awesome? Never mind the children's room, I would gladly swap my sofas for this 'comfy wall' option in our lounge, vacuuming would be a breeze! Other advantages include, never losing the remote control between the cushions and making it very difficult for children to jump on the furniture. A little antisocial, when you want to communicate with the seat next door, but that's not always a bad thing!

So, to end with something slightly more sensible, I think I have found the answer to children's untidyness with one of these inventive storage solutions. It's been completely beyond all reason before now, but the answer may have finally revealed itself in this epic wardrobe/shelf combo. Seriously, how could anyone be untidy with that many shelves?! Okay, so maybe this won't cure teenage untidyness entirely, but it will mean they have no excuse, which will increase nagging capacity tenfold.
