Vaughan Home Renovations: Storage Solutions for Winter Gear

Storage solutions for winter gear

Winter gear, such as scarves, boots, mittens, gloves, heavy coats and equipment can take up a lot of space in your home. When the winter season is over it can be even more challenging to find a place to put these essential items, especially if you have kids or a larger family. It can be even more frustrating to lose track of these items when you need them the most. At Handyman Connection, we specialize in storage solutions in Vaughan that can give busy families and homeowners a way to neatly store their winter gear. Here are some ways we can help you create the perfect winter gear storage setup.

Wall Hooks

One easy idea that we can make happen is to install wall hooks in your mudroom, foyer, closet or other space for winter gear storage. Wall hooks can be an easy way to hang items like winter hats, scarves, coats, snow pants, gloves and mittens. They can also help dry off wet gear after coming indoors from the elements and prevent a soggy mess. You can have hooks positioned in each child’s room so they have their own space to hang their winter stuff or create a shared space in a closet or entry hall.


The next easy and budget-friendly storage option is to use baskets to store winter items. Our team can build shelves for you in almost any part of your house for basket storage. Baskets are the perfect place to put small knit winter items, like scarves, hats, gloves and mittens. Give each child in your family their own basket for their winter items and label them with names to make getting ready in the winter much easier. Then, when winter is over you can empty the baskets and box winter items up, leaving you extra space for other frequently-used items.

Storage Benches

Storage benches can also give you a versatile option for keeping things organized and tidy. If your home’s entryway or mudroom is cluttered and disorganized, consider having us build you a storage bench that does double duty as seating and storage for winter gear. You can keep bins inside of the bench with essential winter accessories and give your kids a convenient seating area for putting on boots and bundling up for the winter cold. Once spring arrives, the bench can keep winter items hidden away and your entry space clutter-free.

Under the Bed

If you’re struggling to find spaces to keep your winter gear, try looking under your bed. In each bedroom designate a space under the bed for storing winter gear after the weather starts to warm up. Some possible ideas are to buy plastic bins that slide under the bed or build a separate storage drawer that fits under a standard bed and contains compartments to hold heavy coats and winter accessories. This can help maximize your space and keep items hidden away until next year.
