Maximize Your Storage Space

Do you feel like no matter how hard you try you can never find enough space in your home? Do you become frustrated when looking at items crammed any and everywhere? Are you tired of running out of ways to fix this problem? 

If you answered yes to any of these questions, here’s a list of tips and tools to help you maximize your storage space.  

1. Assess 

First, determine which areas of your home are the most crowded and could use more open space. From there, come up with a vision for how you would like each of these spaces to look. Once that vision is in mind, create a plan to help you achieve said goal. 

2. Get Rid of Things

One of the easiest ways to make more space is to throw or give things away. Go through each of the spaces in your home and get rid of all the things you no longer use or need. This will allow you to instantly reassess how much space is available. You might just find that getting rid of things is all you need to solve the problem. 

3. Use Plastic Storage Bins

Plastic storage bins will come in handy as you try and neatly organize your remaining items. The bins are a way to group a decent number of like items together in one location. Consider labeling the bins to make it easier to identify where to begin your search when retrieving items from storage. This can be especially helpful when storing décor that you plan on using for future holidays. 

4. Use Folding Clothes Hangers

Closets can become packed as you purchase or receive clothing items. These hangers allow you to preserve and organize your clothes while freeing up space. This is made possible as the connected hangers can be hung vertically or horizontally based on the design of the hook. 

5. Purchase a Hanging Pot Rack

A hanging pot rack is an inexpensive way to free up your kitchen cabinet and drawer space. It can be used to store the pots, pans, and utensils you cook with the most. A bonus is you have easy access to them, cutting down on the time spent searching for cooking tools. 

6. Take Advantage of Your Ottoman

An ottoman is a versatile piece of furniture, and guess what it can be used for? Storage! No matter the size, ottomans are a great option for storing everyday essentials or items such as magazines and toys that eventually add to the clutter of a space. 

7. Invest in Stackable Units

Stackable units can be helpful when transforming dead space into storage space. One way to achieve this is to add shelves to spaces like closets or bathrooms. The shelves can be used to store things such as baskets and shoes or towels and toilet paper.

And just like that, you have all the tools necessary to maximize your storage space at any given time.
