Creating Storage Spaces In Your House
In many homes around the world, storage space appears to be at a premium. There never seems to be enough places to tuck away belongings and still keep the home ordered and attractive. Fortunately, you can create or increasing storage space without having to build anything in your house. Here are the ideas. In the bedroom, purchase plastic, sealable containers or cardboard boxes to store winter/summer clothing and shoes. Or you can use the drawers and get rid of the furniture. Simply install small rolling wheels to the bottom of the drawers, and cut a piece of wood, cardboard, or old shade to fit over the top. Storing holiday decorations here is also a great idea. Make sure you label the containers so they are easily recognizable at a glance. The same idea can be applied to the space under your dresser. Use covered wicker baskets that fit under the furniture to store items away, while keeping the look of the room approachable. Remember, anything under the bed will be covered by the bed linens, a storage container under a dresser will be noticeable.
Closet storage space can be the most underutilized space in any home. Usually designed simply with a rod and a few shelves, there are simple ways to improve the possibilities inherent in a small closed in space. First, clean out the closet. Only complete outfits and those pieces that mix and match well should be kept. Sort them by color and type. Rehang them using multiple level hangers. Tiered hanging baskets can be used to organize socks, belts, scarves, purses or other small items.
