How to maximise storage space in your home
You can never have too much storage space within your home. Sometimes though, in the course of our busy lives, it can be quite difficult to manage these areas, which tend to get a bit messy with clutter.
That’s why it’s important to learn how to work with spaces you already have. The good news is that there are a number of ways to create an extra bit of space in your home.
Here are five storage tips to help you along.
Don’t let the size of your home be the reason that you lack space. It’s more so what’s inside and how much unnecessary space you are taking up than the actual size of the space. Make sure to schedule decluttering into your monthly routine. Doing this on a regular basis will not only make your home feel bigger, but also open up additional storage space. Decide what you are keeping, throwing away or donating.
- Organise your space
Take the time to plan and organise your space. Make sure to keep your home layout as simple as possible without overloading any areas. If you feel there’s not enough space in the home for certain items, consider renting a self storage unit for when you may need them again.
- Think vertical
If you’ve run out of floor space, then maybe it’s time to go the vertical route by making use of wall and overhead areas. This is a great way to create extra storage and to open up more floor space.
- Multifunctional furniture
Less is more! Multifunctional furniture is another great way of creating extra space. Consider using a stool as a bedside table or use ottomans for storage and seating space. An extendable dining room table is another great way of creating more space.
