5 Great Storage Tips for the Home

We all have to declutter our home every now and then, or do we? There are some ingenious home storage hacks out there, which we present in this short article.

  • Plastic storage drawers – They come in all shapes and sizes; you could order one to store your king quilt cover and spare bedding; store it under the bed and you can reclaim valuable wardrobe space. Trawl the web looking for specific dimensions and you are sure to find a unit that fits under the bed like a glove! They are perfect for kids’ bedrooms and they stack and are interconnected. There are storage drawer sets that cover an entire wall and they look quite trendy.
  • Hanging kitchen implements – Make best use of kitchen wall space by hanging implements on hook racks; being visible, it is easy to locate the right tool for the job. Google is all you need to source kitchen hooks, which can be suction-fixed or using traditional screws. Ceramic tiles are ideal for attaching hooks and racks, as is glass, aluminium, stainless steel or timber.
  • Hanging shoe organisers – You could attach one to the back of the kid’s bedroom door, giving a place to store toys; in the hall, you can hang another for the many pairs of shoes found in a family home. Indeed, these handy devices can be used in many ways, reclaiming valuable storage space in cupboards. Simply attach the top hooks over the back of the door and you’re good to go.
  • Custom-made storage units – If you have a few irregular spaces around the house, why not ask a local carpenter to build timber storage units that fit perfectly in the space? Pine is an attractive timber that is ideal for cupboards, shelves and cabinets. A joiner would take a look at the target room and draw a rough sketch of what he has in mind; if you prefer other materials, there are composites that are just as good as timber and require zero maintenance.
  1. Stacked recycling bins – A vertical stack that can sit behind the kitchen door, with recycled plastic containers fixed to a wooden framework. If you would like some help with the design, search the DIY forums online and you will find someone who has drawings that you can download. Google can take you to recycled storage units and using old stuff from the garden, you can probably knock something up!

Once you have the right storage solutions, your home will never be cluttered and this helps to keep your interior in some sort of order, even with the kids. Thinking outside the box leads to creative storage solutions and all that unused space gets occupied and within easy reach. With a little searching, you can source the perfect storage units for every room in the house.
