Maximise storage in your home

MAXIMISE STORAGE IN YOUR HOME 

There are many ways to maximise storage in your home. One way is to convert your loft into usable storage space. Another way is to make shelving units underneath stairways. You can also convert your garage into a proper storage area. By doing these things, you can create more storage space in your home, making it more organized and efficient.

Another way to create more storage space in your home is to declutter. This means getting rid of items that you no longer need or use. This can free up a lot of space, allowing you to store other things in their place. You can also consider renting a storage unit if you have items that you want to keep but don’t necessarily need on a regular basis. This can be a great way to create extra space in your home without having to get rid of anything.

If you are looking for ways to maximise storage in your home, there are many options available to you. By taking some time to explore all of your options, you can find the best solution for your needs. This will help you keep your home more organised and efficient, making it a more enjoyable place to live.

HOW TO ADD SHELVING – UNDER STAIRS ETC:

Adding shelving to your under stairway space is a great way to add extra storage without taking up too much space. You can use this shelving to store things like holiday decorations, out-of-season clothing, or even non-perishable food items.

To get started, you will need to measure the space under your stairs to determine how much shelving you will need. Once you have your measurements, head to your local hardware store or home improvement center to purchase the supplies you will need.

Next, you will need to install the shelving. This can be done by screwing the shelving into the wall or by using brackets. If you are using brackets, be sure to use ones that are rated for the weight of the shelving and the items you will be storing on it.

Once your shelving is installed, you can start filling it with whatever you need to store. Be sure to leave some space at the top for taller items. And, if you have any items that are particularly fragile, be sure to store them on the top shelf.

HOW TO MAXIMISE YOUR GARAGE SPACE:

There are many ways you can use your garage to maximise storage space.

By using some simple organisation techniques, you can make the most of this often neglected area in your home.

One way to utilise your garage for storage is by installing shelves. This will give you a designated place to store items such as boxes, tools and other household items. You can purchase shelves specifically for garages at most hardware stores.

Another great way to organise your garage is by using hooks and hangers. This is perfect for storing garden equipment, sports gear and other larger items. You can also use these methods to hang bikes from the ceiling or walls, freeing up valuable floor space.

If you have a lot of smaller items that need to be stored, consider using baskets or bins. This way you can easily see what is inside and quickly grab what you need. Label each basket or bin so you know exactly where everything is. You can also use your garage for seasonal storage.

If you have items that you only need during certain times of the year, such as holiday decorations or summer sports gear, keep them in the garage. This will declutter your home and make it much easier to find what you need when you need it.

CONVERT YOUR LOFT:

Many of us have lofts that are nothing more than dusty, cobwebbed spaces that are home to nothing more than old boxes, forgotten Christmas decorations and spiders.

But what if your loft could be so much more?

You have so much excess room in your property than you think. Most homeowners have completely forgotten about this huge storage potential right above their heads.

Your loft can be transformed into a spacious and practical storage area that will free up so much potential for space in your home. The best part is that loft conversions can be very cheap if they are only converted to hold storage.

Take a look at our standard package for more info.

Home storage roundup

If you need more storage space in your home but Converting your garage is overkill? Check out our top tips below.

1. Use furniture with hidden storage.

One way to get more storage space in your home is by using furniture with hidden storage. For example, ottomans and coffee tables with built-in storage are great for storing extra blankets, pillows, and toys.

2. Create vertical storage space.

Another way to create more storage space is by using vertical space. Tall shelving units and bookcases are perfect for this.

3. Hang things on the walls.

You can also hang things on the walls, such as pot racks, wall hooks, extra shelving, coat hooks, extra cupboards etc.

4. Use the space under your staircase

If you have a staircase leading up to your loft conversion, there’s a good chance you’re not using the space beneath it effectively. This is the perfect spot for some extra storage, whether you use it for boxes, luggage or anything else you need to keep out of the way.

2. Invest in a loft storage conversion

One of the best ways to make use of your loft space is to hire us to convert your loft using our standard loft conversion. Giving you a base to install some kind of flooring, whether it’s carpet, laminate or something else. This package will give you a level surface to work with, making it much easier to store things and keep your loft organised. Always seek professional advice beforehand.

3. Get some shelves installed

Shelves are a great way to make the most of your loft conversion space. You can get shelves that go up the whole length of the wall, or you can go for something smaller that fits neatly into an alcove. Whatever type of shelving you choose is up to you – just be sure to make good use of this valuable storage space.

4. Use stackable boxes

Stackable boxes are a great option if you don’t have much floor space in your loft conversion. They allow you to store items on top and underneath them, so they take up less room than regular boxes and other types of storage when stacked together one on top of another.

5. Invest in some hanging rails

Hanging rails are essential if you want to make the most of your loft conversion space. You can hang your clothes from them, or anything else that suits – just be sure to have a good system for organizing everything so it’s easy to find what you need when you need it.

6. Use space-saving racks and cubes

If stacking boxes doesn’t work for you, try some space-saving racks and cubes instead. These are miniature storage systems that are perfect for smaller spaces such as lofts, making it easy to store all sorts of things without wasting any valuable room.

7. Get some hooks installed on the wall

Hooks are another excellent way to save space in your loft conversion, especially if you have limited floor or shelf space. You can use them to hang coats, towels, bags or anything else that you need to keep off the floor and out of the way.

8. Use under-bed storage

If you have a bed in your loft conversion, make use of the space underneath it with some under-bed storage. This is perfect for storing things that you don’t need easy access to, such as extra bedding or seasonal clothing.

9. Keep things organized with baskets and bins

Baskets and bins are a great way to keep your loft conversion organized and tidy. You can use them to store anything from clothes and shoes to books and toys – just be sure to label them so you know what’s inside each one

Whatever route you choose, getting more storage space in your home is definitely possible.

So don’t wait any longer, start decluttering and get organized today!
