If you were to write a list of essentials for the average modern day homeowner, storage would likely be top of the list. It seems to be that no matter how much we try to declutter and be mindful of what we consume, we somehow always need more storage. But if you’re struggling for space inside your home, why not embrace the great outdoors?
Investing in outdoor storage solutions can take those unwanted items taking up space to create a more cohesive flow from the inside to the outside of your home. Whether you have a garden, patio or balcony, we’ve got a selection of tips to help you maximise your outdoor space.

Shipton Post Box
According to Feng Shui, the main entrance sets the tone for our entire home so it’s important to keep this space clutter-free. Messy piles of letters disrupting the flow of your living space will be a thing of the past with a handy post box. The ideal garden accessory, its heavy hinged steel lid prevents post from being damaged by rain, and includes two keys for added security.
Ferm Living Planters
If you're struggling for space to store your foliage, why not add a new green dimension to your patio using elevated planters such as this versatile Bau Pot from Ferm Living? Borrowing its expression from the uncluttered lines and industrial surfaces of the Bauhaus architecture, this stunning planter is both compact and suitable for outdoor use, making it a beautiful addition to any modest sized balcony or patio.
Another way to expand your outdoor space is to take advantage of alternative square metres outside your home. Constructed for indoor and outdoor use, the nordic Wall Box from Ferm Living is perfect for small balconies and window ledges.
