It’s easy to get overwhelmed when trying to find the best storage solutions for your home. There are ways to help ease the stress, but it’s all about maximizing your existing space and in some cases, implementing new ones.
If you’re completely lost when it comes to your storage space, Handyman Connection has some helpful tips:
Quick & Easy Storage Ideas for Your Home
Create New Storage Areas
Look for ways you can create storage space in your home. Do you have blank areas of your wall that aren’t being utilized for anything? Consider installing shelves to help keep things organized. A local handyman can help advise you as to what areas of your home would be good for installing shelves.
You should also look to add storage spaces in the form of cabinets or shelves in “prime real estate areas.” These are the areas of your home that come between your knees and your shoulders. Things that are frequently used should be put in this location, where you can use higher or lower areas (toward the ceiling or floor) for things that aren’t used as much.
Utilize Clear Tubs or Vacuum Seal Bags
For things that you are storing away on a higher shelf or under your bed, consider using clear plastic tubs, containers, and even vacuum seal bags to maximize space and help keep you organized.
If you’re using spaces like basements or attics, keeping things clear and organized is going to be your number one priority. If you’re trying to find a way to store things you use often like blankets, remotes or other things that wouldn’t be put away for longer periods of time, consider using decorative baskets that compliment the design of your space.
