Dragons Den Appearance – 10 Years On

Ten years ago, on April 16th 2012 our founder, Paul Jacob, walked into the Dragon’s Den to present his Smart Storage solution to Dragons, Norah Casey, Gavin Duffy, Niall O’Farrell and Sean O’Sullivan. Smart Storage is the answer to every households’ problem “lack of storage space”. Our understairs storage units maximise the unused space beneath the stairs and provide a discreet storage solution.

After a successful pitch to the Dragons, resulting in Norah Casey becoming a Shareholder, Smart Storage has gone from strength to strength and is now the largest provider of understairs storage in the world.

With over 60,000 units installed around the world Smart Storage has proved it has global reach.

The company now employs more than 60 staff and has significantly expanded in Ireland and the UK with Smart Storage understairs storage units now available nationwide in both countries. From 469 units installed at the end of 2011 to over 60,000 units ten years later, we have an ever-growing network of experienced installers working tirelessly to provide a storage solution to suit all our customers needs.

Ten years on from Paul’s pitch, homes have gotten smaller and the pandemic has seen them transition from living spaces to hybrid working/living spaces, further highlighting the need to maximise every inch of available space.

So what’s next for Smart Storage? 

Our founder Paul Jacob believes the best is yet to come:

“The past 10 years have flown by and have seen fantastic expansion in the business. I would like to thank all the staff, past and present, who have helped on our journey and all our customers who have supported us. It is so rewarding to see returning customers who have moved house or whose mums and dads were customers now order from us. With over 11 million homes across Ireland and the UK we have a lot more work to do, and our growth plans for the next 10 years are very exciting. Dragons Den was the platform that helped launch the business, our team & loyal customers will be the driving factor going forward.”

Store Shoes the Smart Way

Looking to free your hallway of footwear clutter? We have the solution!
Our practical and modern understairs storage units maximise the wasted space beneath the stairs and offer a fantastic shoe storage solution.

Smart Storage CEO Paul Jacob originally came up with the idea for understairs storage as a result of the shoe crisis in his own home.  We are all familiar with the shoe mountain that can quickly grow in any family’s home! At Smart Storage, we have made it so easy to organise all the family’s shoes. Check out our top tips for shoe storage below.

Shoe Storage Hacks & Ideas

1.Store the shoes you and your family wear most often in an easily accessible drawer. If you are storing children’s shoes in an understairs storage unit, ensure they are stored in the lower drawers so that they are easy to access.

2. Create built in shoe storage in the nooks and crannies around your home. An under stairs storage unit is a fantastic hidden storage solution! If your home does not have stairs, our storage benches also make a great hidden storage solution for any hallway, while also providing an attractive seating area.

3. Can you ever have enough baskets? We love this drawer organisation hack by styled_by_blair. They have stored their lighter summer sandals and flip flops in these little storage baskets, helping them to maximise the space available within the storage drawer. Genius!

4. Use our optional upgrade shoe rails to create a convenient shoe shelf with the drawer. Each shoe rail is fully removable, allowing you to alter the drawer for different storage purposes as your storage needs change.

5.Last but not least…only keep the shoes you wear often. If you haven’t worn them in twelve months, it is usually best to donate them if suitable, or to throw them away if worn. As Marie Kondo says…only keep the items that spark joy!

Reopening & Houzz Award

We are delighted to announce that in line with Government regulations we have reopened in Ireland and are delighted to have resumed our under stairs storage installations. As always, we will be following recommended guidelines to keep our employees and customers safe.

On another positive note we are delighted to announce that we have been awarded the Houzz Service Award for 2021. This is our fifth year in a row winning the Houzz Service Award, having also been awarded in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020. We are especially proud of this year’s award as the Covid-19 pandemic presented many challenges for our business over the past 12 months. We dealt with these challenges and were delighted to resume normal operations recently thanks to the support of our wonderful installers, staff and customers. Thank you!
