DIY Chaise Lounge with Storage

A chaise is a lovely place to sit and relax, but they do take up a lot of floor area. Adding a hidden storage however,  offsets the loss of space — and makes it a great piece of furniture to add to your home!

This kind of furniture is best added to the living room (or entertainment room), where you could comfortably lie on it while watching your favourite TV show or reading a book.

What’s great about doing it yourself — aside from spending less as compared to buying a commercial one — is that you can customize the dimensions to suit your space.
