Small Space Storage Tips Courtesy of the Pros
Many of us dream of a spacious walk-in closet with room enough to fit all of our belongings. Unfortunately, not every home is big enough to suit your storage goals. While you might not be able to afford that mansion with endless closets, there are steps you can take to make even small spaces fit your needs. From cramped kitchens to lackluster laundry rooms, here are some of our favorite small space storage tips to try.
Is your kitchen a little low on space? If you don’t have a pantry large enough to hold your cooking implements and bulk food, it might be time to rethink your storage system. We recommend utilizing walls and doors to stow items that won’t fit in your cupboards and cabinets. For example, you can install a metal or plastic rack on the wall to hold items like spices and jarred foods. Similarly, the back of the door is a great option for pot lids and narrow Tupperware containers.
Not every bathroom is blessed with under-sink storage or a large linen closet. If you need a place to store toiletries and cosmetics, consider using bins or baskets. One of the benefits of this storage option is that you can include labels on the containers. Not only will this system motivate you to place things in their proper spots, but it will also make finding what you need a breeze. By placing decorative wicker baskets on a shelf below the window, you can add style, charm, and function.
Just because your closet is on the small side doesn’t mean you have to stow clothes in other parts of the home. If you want to keep your wardrobe in one place, think about swapping out your hangers. While plastic hangers take up a lot of space in your closet, velvet hangers have the benefit of being slim and attractive. Additionally, clothing is less likely to slip off a velvet hanger and wind up in a heap on the floor.
If you’re like most people, you probably spend more time in your laundry room than you might like. While you might not be able to pass this task off to someone else, you can ensure that your laundry room is both functional and attractive. We recommend maximizing space in this part of the home by adding shelves over the washer and dryer. Use this space for detergents, dryer sheets, stain removers, and more. You can also add a few decorative touches, like candles, accessories, or even framed photos of family members and friends so that this room feels more like a part of your home.
