Finding storage solutions for every room can be a frustrating task for homeowners. All too often, clutter seems to pile up and take over spaces that are supposed to be functional. Fortunately, Handyman Connection in Winnipeg can help you tackle the issue by utilizing vertical space and open shelves to maximize your storage potential.

With a little creativity, you can turn unused wall space into a functional storage area that will work wonders for a tidy and organized home.

Turn Wall Space into a Canvas for Storage 

Too often, walls are seen merely as a vertical canvas for portraits and decorations. Yet, the value of these towering spaces is overlooked when it comes to smart and innovative design. We focus on both vertical space and open areas and strategically incorporate storage options into your home. 

Have you ever thought about the space above your sink or next to your fridge? It might currently be under-utilized, even wasted. Our professionals skim every inch of your rooms, identifying such untapped areas. By employing open or tiered shelving, you can create additional storage without affecting valuable floor space

Create Inviting Spaces with Open Shelves 

Something as simple as open shelves can brighten up a room, making it feel larger. Their transparency makes everything accessible and easy to find while creating appealing displays. From kitchen items to personal treasures, everything is within reach, with visual impact to boot. 

Open shelves can be sleek and modern or rustic and homey, easily matching your aesthetic tastes. We handle the building and installation with craftsmanship and attention to detail, prioritizing your satisfaction. 

Our Experts are Ready to Enhance Your Home 

Don’t let disorganization hinder your quality of life. Let Handyman Connection assist you in creating an organized, accomplished environment that allows everything to be in its place. We achieve this with our innovative approaches to utilizing vertical spaces and open shelves throughout your home. 

Whether it’s installing floating box shelves in the living room, a multi-tiered rack in your pantry, or a bespoke open-shelf unit for your home workspace, our competent handymen and carpenters are ready to revamp and refine your storage strategy. 

Elevate Your Storage Game: Utilizing Vertical Space in Every Room 

Being masters of all trades, we are well versed in space management techniques that utilize both vertical and open spaces to optimize any room’s layout. Vertical spaces, often disregarded, can be your greatest ally in storing various items discreetly and artistically. 

In the vein of incorporating vertical space, let’s dive in and understand how to capitalize on this mostly under-utilized area, room by room. 

The Living Room 

When it comes to the living room, disarray can quickly build up. From books, and gaming consoles, to craft supplies, you need a dedicated place for all your items. Vertical spaces offer the perfect solution. A well-placed ladder shelf, for example, can be not only a decorative addition but also a smart storage area. Handyman Connection is at your service to build and precisely install these eye-catching features that optimize your vertical spaces.

In the bedroom, we often face the challenge of storing an array of items, from clothing to keepsakes. Consider a vertical storage solution such as a floor-to-ceiling bookshelf built against a wall. It not only adds character to the room but also creates a storage solution without using up valuable floor space. With the clever use of boxes, bins, or baskets, a multi-tier bookcase can also keep your belongings organized and uncluttered. 


Pots, pans, spices… Kitchens house many essential items that require easy accessibility yet an organized storage system. Using vertical space, cabinetry can be structured to rise from floor to ceiling. Handyman Connection can help design functional additions to complement your kitchen décor while providing ample room for all your culinary needs. 


Even the smallest areas like a bathroom can greatly benefit from vertical space utilization. A skinny cabinet or an over-the-toilet shelf provides an excellent solution for your toiletries, bath linens, and medicine storage needs. Our team can custom-build these units to fit your specific bathrooms’ spatial constraints. 

In essence, vertical space, when effectively used, increases the overall potential for improved organization. We, at Handyman Connection, are ready to explore this untapped potential to give you an organized and aesthetically pleasing home.

Maximizing Functionality: Open Shelves for Every Room 

Open shelves are not only a stellar choice for aesthetics but also invite an element of functionality into a room. Besides being a home for your belongings, they can significantly impact the atmosphere of a room, making it airy, vibrant and open. Fully accessible and conducive to creative arrangement, open shelves serve a double function – they help establish order and contribute to your home’s aesthetic appeal. Our Handyman Connection professionals are experts in not only crafting and installing these useful features but also offering advice on how to best utilize them in each room. 

The Living Room 

Oftentimes, the living room is a hub of activity. Books, home theatre systems, gaming consoles, or a stash of knick-knacks, every item can find a perfect spot on open shelves. A strategically located open shelving unit can replace a bulky TV stand, freeing up floor space and putting your prized possessions on display. Our team can create a unique, tailor-made shelving design that aligns with your existing home decor, ensuring the overall aesthetics are maintained. 

The Bedroom 

Imagine a beautifully arranged open shelving system in your bedroom that showcases your collection of books, photo frames, and other trinkets. But it’s more than just a display. Within arm’s reach from your bed, it can be a functional space that eases your routine by granting quick access to your daily necessities. Whether it’s a wall-mounted ledge or a tower of cubbies, Handyman Connection can help design and install the perfect solution for you. 

The Kitchen 

In the kitchen, open shelves serve an unbeatable multi-functional role – they are handy for easy accessibility, perfect for displaying your splendid collection of cookware or dishware, and an innovative way to keep spices and frequently used ingredients at your fingertips. Whether above the counter or standing independently, we can help you capitalize on your kitchen’s potential. 

The Bathroom 

The bathroom often necessitates brilliant organization, due to its usually compact size. Open shelves, skillfully designed and installed, can provide a fantastic solution. A shelf above the sink can hold toiletries and beauty products, while a shelf system near the shower can efficiently accommodate your towels and bath products. Embrace the charm and utility of open shelves for a clean, organized bathroom space
