Everyone has one thing in common – they would like their home to be bigger than it already is. One thing you probably don’t realize is that you could make some extra space in your home just by being organized. Knick-knacks, seasonal décor, and extra clothing can be stored away in convenient storage solutions. Here are some of our favorite storage ideas that work as smart ways to stash away your extra house stuff. Take a look!
Under-bed storage is definitely a valuable place where you can store a ton of stuff. There are low rectangular containers available to purchase that roll directly under your bed. If you are on the market for a bed, make sure to never purchase a bed that lies directly on the floor. Under-bed storage space is so valuable and it’s a shame to put style over functionality.
Under the Staircase Storage
This is a convenient way to store a ton of stuff without having to compromise style for smart storage. You can install a closet and drawers right under the stairs to fit seasonal clothing, décor, extra linens and blankets. Another great idea that many homeowners are now doing is including a little nook for your dog’s bed. Now how cute is that!
Storage Units and Cubes
Have your children taken over the living room with their toys? Make cleaning up fun with colorful storage cubes. There are easy to stack, stow away, and come in a wide range of different colors to perfectly match your home’s décor.
Furniture as Storage
There are a ton of different storage furniture solutions to choose from depending on which room you would like to install them in. Cupboard storage space is great for a garage since it gives you extra floor space, and a standing closet is great for your bedroom or laundry. There are also furniture pieces that double as storage space like ottomans that store shoes and benches that have room inside to store books and knickknacks.
Garage Ceiling Storage
If you are like me and have a huge issue with an over-packed garage, think about your ceiling when considering storage space. Garage storage solutions are easy, since you don’t have to worry about messing up your decorating and focus on being practical. There are tons of racks you can install directly onto your ceiling to stow away storage containers, bicycles, extra tires, and so much more.
Pantry Storage Containers
Kitchen utensils, seasonal dishware, and canned food can really become overwhelming especially in a small kitchen. If you don’t already have a pantry, consider installing one for some extra kitchen storage space. Pantry’s are the holy grail of kitchen storage and make the perfect place to store extra food, pots and pans, and other kitchen knick-knacks.
