If your knowledge of home organisation only goes as far as a few perfunctory wall shelves, prepare to be amazed at what other people are doing with their home design.

In a bid to get ever more tidy and organised, new and fabulous ways to add storage to homes are being dreamt up by talented interior designers and craftsmen. 

But, don't take our word for it, come and be inspired instead!
