One of the biggest complaints people have about their houses is that there’s not enough storage space. In fact, a lack of space is the number one reason people decide to purchase bigger homes.
But if buying a house isn’t in the cards for you right now, there are plenty of steps you can take to better utilize the space you do have. This Blog will be broken down into a three part series.
Invest in Smart Storage
If you’re struggling to find space in your house, luckily, many options exist to organize and save room in the storage spaces you do have.
- Vacuum-sealed bags: These bags compress clothes, pillows, blankets and other soft items to help them fit into tighter spaces. You can stack and store them away in closets or under beds, and you have the added bonus of knowing your items will be protected from outside damage.
- Stackable storage bins: If you find you’re running out of space in drawers or closets, consider organizing your items into plastic bins. Unorganized messes can take up more space than clutter organized into containers.
- Shelving and cabinets: Adding closed or open shelving units throughout your home can take care of storage and also provide an attractive feature if used in the right way. But if you don’t want to add shelves into high-traffic areas, consider putting them in laundry rooms, garages, or other less-seen areas of your home.
- Hidden storage: You can add hidden storage spaces numerous places in your home, including on staircases and inside furniture like coffee tables and ottomans.
