I bought a wrapping paper container by Rubbermaid (tall trash can height with a foot high lid with snaps on both sides). I fit 4 regular size yoga mats in this covered and protected space. They stay clean and are portable.
You can get a trunk that is used as a coffee table and then inside room for yoga mat rolled up, bolster, blocks and all your props. (: Just an idea. Wicker trunks has space that air gets through.
If the mess is a result of post class rush, use folding the blankets, rolling the straps and putting props away neatly as part of the class, either before or after relaxation, whichever is more appropriate. The Yoga of Cleaning Up!
IKEA baskets on IKEA Shelves :)
I built a hanging ladder for my blankets (I sometimes use 5 per person for my restorative classes so I have a ton!) so I efficiently used the real estate on the wall in a narrow hallway. I also use Ikea shelves for blocks bolsters and mats.
Well I was using some hand made shelves but, IKEA shelves you say... Hmmm. Definitely checking that out, right now.
I saw a studio with limited space using a system of nets with pulleys hanging from the ceiling to store all of their mats and blankets and blocks, etc. The floor area was completely clear of anything not being used in a class.
