If you’re like most people, there’s never quite enough room in your house to put everything away. Books lay stacked in disorderly piles. You’re tripping over shoes in the hallway. You turn sideways to fit past the bike in the garage. You can’t find your favourite summer outfit through the winter jackets and coats.
No one likes feeling cramped or seeing their house in disarray. Making the most of underused nooks and crannies could make a huge difference to how you feel about your home.
Create a place for everything and put everything in its place with these great storage ideas for your home.
There are a number of ways you can use high spaces to find an extra bit of storage space in your home.
Shelving over door frames or windows can provide a place to store books or knick-knacks that you don’t use often.
A bookcase that goes right up to the ceiling makes use of an often used area.
Kitchen storage which makes use of the area above traditional cupboards not only adds a place for items you rarely use, but also gets rid of the clutter and dust that accumulates there, giving a much cleaner line.
An attic conversion the perfect solution, if you lack home storage. Even in low lying roofs, things like the Christmas tree and other out of season items.
Remember that heat and humidity in your roof may affect some items, so you don’t want to store anything precious in your roof space.
Bedhead storage makes a great place for all those winter throws and blankets that normally clutter up the linen press.
Storage beds are a fantastic way to make more room for little used items or winter clothing that is currently cluttering your wardrobe.
Transform the area under your bed, where dust bunnies like the swirl, by using rolling boxes, drawers, or even shelving to create extra room.
Shelving that frames the toilet area, from floor to ceiling can give much needed space, particularly where cupboard space is at a premium.
Cupboards and shelving below the stairs is nothing new, but think outside the box and use the between your stairs to store all sorts of bits and bobs.
You can make more room in your garage by moving items upwards. Bike hangers, rack hooks mounted to the wall or ceiling, and even high shelving can make your garage easier to manoeuvre.
