Dresser– Instead of using dresser, opt for fabric shelves that hang from the closet bar. You can use it for keeping the socks and other folded clothes. In baby’s room you can keep every thing sleepers to bibs to washcloths.


End tables– Adding extra little beds in the corners and at the end of the couches are just clutter, so try and avoid it.


TV stand or entertainment center– Ditch television stand altogether. But if you are not ready to do that, you can hang it on the wall.


Sideboard or buffet– Say adieu to all the fancy tables that you possess and use the heirloom china that you never use and skip the storage piece- give away your wallet, and a dining area. This way you can render breathing space to your room.
