Even when you try to keep your home well-organized sometimes belongings accumulate, things get shifted, and you feel like you need more room than you have. Although it may seem like there’s no space left in your home to store things, all you have to do is a little rearranging. Here are a few tips to utilize the area you have for extra storage.

 

Pantry:

 

The pantry can be a hodgepodge of different belongings crammed into one space. To make it a little easier to find things as well as maximize storage, use specific drawers, cabinets and shelves for particular items. For example, place all the pots and pans in one cabinet instead of spreading them throughout the room.

 

Entertainment room:

 

The entertainment room is just that, a room for entertaining yourself and guests. Keeping it organized is easy if you install cabinets that have doors. That way, wires, remotes and kids’ toys can be out of sight when your guests arrive.

 

Entryway:

 

Adding bins to the entryway is a great way to open up the space by opening up otherwise-taken hook and hanger real estate. Instead of hanging scarves and hats, why not place them in a bin? This will allow you to use hanging storage for larger, bulkier items such as jackets and bags.

 

Bedroom:

 

From small children’s closets to walk-in closets in the master bedroom, there’s always a way to use the space more efficiently for storage. For maximum organization, use the height, width and length of your closet. Hang bars at multiple levels to maximize height; place shoes on racks along the side of the closet to take advantage of the width; and install shelves above clothing to utilize length.

 

Garage:

 

Of all the spaces in your home, your garage arguably has the most potential to be used for storage space. The walls alone offer multiple options. Whether you want to place hooks to hang bikes or shelves to store tools, you can make the best use of the area by using multiple wall-storage techniques.

 

Laundry:

 

Instead of storing things on or near the floor, raise them up. Hanging open shelving in the laundry room can boost the storage capacity in the room as well as give you easy access to your belongings.

 

Maximizing the storage space you have in each room of your home doesn’t have to be difficult. Just one change or addition can do wonders!
