A quick and easy solution to store most anything is utilizing a bookshelf. They are simply for much much more than just books!
Bookshelves offer wonderful storage, due to the slim amount of real estate they require. Going up is always more space efficient than going out. This is an example of a bookshelf storing laundry room needs.
A perfect spot to place your favorite things out of little hands' way to boot!
Open concept basket storage works well in this case. The baskets provide enough hiding capabilities, yet still allow you to peek at the goods inside for easy grasp. And there's just something about woodsy baskets that really warm up a space!
Don't overlook a bookcase to sneak into an otherwise unusable space!
