Where do you keep your suitcase?

When storing suitcases, the first place to store them is often at home, but there are many options depending on your idea, such as renting a locker, storage service, or using a container box (containers with moisture protection are best).

No matter which method you choose, it is generally best to place it in a location that is not exposed to direct sunlight. Also, there is no doubt that it is better to take measures against moisture.

*By the way, recently there is a suitcase storage service. Since they specialize in suitcases, I personally think they are better than rental lockers or container boxes. The monthly cost is also very low. (Cheaper compared to rental lockers and container boxes)

And if you want to store it without spending a lot of money, your home is the best place.

However, it is often difficult to find a place to store your suitcase. There are many times when I don't use it, but it takes up a lot of space. This is good in the sense that you can't see things like closets, but it may be a waste if you use it only for suitcases.

For this reason, one way to store it stylishly is to use it like furniture (interior) at home. Possible indoor areas include the living room, entryway, and bedroom.

ideas for living room

When placing it in the living room, it is important to make sure that it is stylish. Therefore, it is a good idea to consider the color and shape of the suitcase you will store it in before purchasing. Personally, I personally recommend aluminum frames for living rooms as they surprisingly match stylishly with any room.

Another option is to place a chair (it's best if it's shaped like a bench and has space for things) and put your suitcase underneath it.

Another idea that could be used in the bedroom is to simply lay it down and use it as a table. However, it depends on the size of your living room, so in this case, if you live alone, it may be better to use it as a sub-table.

If you want to use it as a table, colors like black or brown or a well-worn vintage suitcase would also work well. *Depending on the atmosphere of the room, it may give the impression of being dirty, so please be careful.

If you are placing an existing suitcase, it may be a good idea to put a sticker on it, but you can also try placing books, figurines, or soccer uniforms on top (like a towel). It is also recommended to make it blend in as a piece of furniture.

Ideas to put at the entrance

Surprisingly, anything can go well with the entrance, depending on how you approach it. And it's very easy to do, so I recommend it. Another advantage is that there is less need to wash it.

A good idea is to place it in the corner of the area where you take off your shoes at the entrance, and then place stylish sneakers on top of it, or if you have a stylish suitcase, line it up with leather shoes.

Basically, it is easier to place it in the area where you take off your shoes (the first place you enter with your shoes on). *If your shoe closet is spacious, you can also put your shoes there horizontally.
If your entrance is large, you may want to place it next to a folding bicycle.

As long as the suitcase is placed at the entrance, any color or shape will work. Therefore, if you have a unique suitcase, you might want to use it indoors and as interior decoration! In that case, the entrance is recommended.

Also, before purchasing, I think it's a good idea to choose a suitcase with the intention of placing it in the entryway as interior decoration.

ideas for bedroom

If you are placing it in your bedroom, we recommend a place that is as inconspicuous as possible. First of all, if you want to put it safely, it would be better to place it in a corner or corner. Then, if you place your favorite photo on top, it will match the room relatively well.

Also, even if it's in a conspicuous place (for example, in the center of the room or a side area), placing your suitcase on its side like a table and placing something shiny like a light on top can be surprisingly fashionable. It would also be a good idea to add fashionable magazines and collector's items.

It is also a good idea to place it in a corner to match the color of your bed or futon. It may give a sense of unity and match the room. For example, if your bed or futon is black, your suitcase should be black, and if you place a light on top of it, it may blend in better. Also, you can create a bedroom with a stylish and fashionable atmosphere even if it is all white.
