Every house needs storage space that you can get to easily, that holds a wide variety of items, and that is as flexible as possible. Using a room-by-room guide to the house, you can make the most of your storage space, focusing on four key categories of storage: active, seasonal, dormant, and displayed will help you maximise you home storage.
For example a great place to start you home storage revamp is the children or younger people in your household. These rooms are the most common problem. After cleaning your home, you’ll probably have more than enough for a garage sale, so explain to your children/adolecents that whatever toys/belongings they get rid of, they can make money to save up for whatever they want. It’s important to include them in this process because you want them to understand the hassles of cleaning, and you can teach them about the value of giving to people in need.
Creative home storage help. Decorated empty coffee cans, chip cylinders and cookie tins or wooden craft boxes make great looking storage containers that can be used in virtually any room in the house. Boxes can be decorated with left over wall paper scraps, colored corrugated paper and twine or sponge art. Be sure and label your items when the boxes are finished! Decorative screens are a popular way to define a room space or maintain privacy. Adding fabric pockets to the panels are a fun way to add storage options. Use the pockets to organize magazines, newspaper, unopened mail and get your home storage project of to a good start.
Under the home storage title are the rest of the rooms in the house. Bathroom towels can be stored attractively stacked and rolled up in a oversized wicker basket. Towels or magazines can also be hung from an antique wooden ladder in your bathroom. Use wall mounted baskets attached to shelf brackets for a attractive shelf that can hold bathroom supplies or home office paperwork. This is just the beginning of home storage, see links provided. Be creative and try to think of alternative uses for normal household items and you will be surprised at the simple storage solutions you can come up with.
