Storage Options Made Easy

You’ve been putting it off for months; the longstanding task of spring cleaning. Whether it’s the fact that there is not a partiality to it or just the overwhelming amount of “things” to clean around, organization simplifies housework. We’ve all dreamed of being able to clear our home of everything to be able to accomplish this goal, but that is not practical for most people. The most overwhelming chores can be broken down into smaller goals and, somehow, do not seem as daunting. Let’s take some organization into each room of the home. You can even begin outside!

An attractive storage bench outside of the door is very versatile. It can be used to store outdoor toys, sports equipment, small yard tools, or recyclables. While being useful, it also adds an inviting appearance to the entry of your home. Maybe there is not enough room to accommodate a bench outside, but what about the entryway into your home? Select a model that incorporates a coat rack and save even more space while corralling those coats and hats.

The living room offers many alternatives for storage. An ottoman is an ideal example. They can be utilized for toys, pillows, throw blankets, and even a place to store files. Several ottomans can also be combined to serve as a coffee table, just add a tray or two. Leaving one ottoman entirely empty provides for a last minute hideaway for those items that you do not want to expose unexpected guests to. Floating shelves are aesthetically pleasing and offer an abode for favorite books, cd's, DVD’s, or other collections. Baskets can also be used for storage in the living room for articles that are beautiful and destined for display.

The kitchen is another area that can profit significantly from a small amount of arrangement and storage tips. Why not use a hanging rack to store frequently used pots and pans. This frees up a lot of cabinet area to use for other items, such as small appliances that occupy a lot of counter space. Consider stowing items under your sink in a plastic, covered container. Although this tidbit may not save much space, it will help avoid water damage to anything stored beneath your sink.

The bathroom is probably one of the smallest rooms in your home, yet seems to accumulate a vast array of products. Towels and wash cloths displayed in a basket preserve cabinet space for other belongings that rather not displayed. Bathrooms could also benefit from an over the toilet tower system of shelves or wall shelves. This is a vast amount of wasted space that could provide necessary storage options.

How can a bedroom be one of tranquillity when there are stacks here and piles there? Under-the-bed storage drawers have endless possibilities; put away out of season clothing, shoes, or maybe leave one empty and designated as a donation drawer. If underneath the bed is filled with storage drawers, where ever will those little dust bunnies hide?

Every home has the potential for extra storage; the additional space simply needs to be discovered.
