Storage is one of the first things that people will look at when it comes to buying a new house. We all need storage within our house, regardless of how minimalistic we may be. In fact, storage is something that a majority of the population would say is a justifiable expense. Whether that’s in the form of additional cabinets or a larger closet or it’s the monthly fee associated with a storage unit, this is an expense that many can justify. With that being said, there have been various creative storage hacks that have surfaced over the years to help make the most of the space that you already have.

In today’s blog post, the team at EZ Storage® is going to go over a few of the different clever ways that you can make the most of the space you have in your home. If, at the end of implementing these hacks, you still don’t have enough storage space, contact our office and get a quote on one of our high-quality storage units!

Under-the-Bed Storage

Our homes offer plenty of space, but not all of it can be used for storage. With that in mind, there are various places in our home that might not be the most obvious storage option, but can certainly do the trick. A place that many people turn to when looking for additional storage within their homes is under the bed. This is a place that very few people will see when they walk into a room but will offer some additional storage space.

If you aren’t already using the space below your bed for storage, go through some of your items and think about which items would be easy to store under the bed.

Use Storage Solutions

When it comes to making the most of the space that you do have, you want to make sure that you’re using it wisely. One of the most common mistakes that people make is storing items individually. Not only does this make a space look cluttered, it makes it difficult to make the most of the space that you do have. One of the things that you can do to make the most of the space that you have is invest in storage solutions like tupperware. When you do this, you can store multiple items, in the same place, and stack the tupperware. Now, you’ve got less clutter and you’ve made the most of the space you do have available.

Furniture with Hidden Storage

Something that we are seeing more and more of is furniture that has hidden storage. The primary benefit of furniture that has storage is that you get to double-dip in your use of space. Whether you opt for a coffee table that can store magazines, an ottoman that can store blankets, or a bed with drawers that pull out, you can make the most of the space that you have and get some additional storage out of furniture that you’d have regardless.

Another fantastic perk of this storage option is that you minimize clutter by keeping so many items out of sight. If you aren’t a fan of blanket baskets or want to optimize the space in your bedroom by removing your dresser, this is a solution that provides you with storage while keeping things clean and out of the way.

Upgrade Your Current Storage Solutions

While it’s certainly not the ideal route, it is an option that you can take advantage of to make the most of the space that you have. Over the years, we’ve seen various storage solutions evolve in regards to what they’re able to provide in terms of storage. A prime example? Your kitchen cabinets! Gone are the days of having to deal with awkward cabinets or drawers with items rolling around every which way. Now, you can invest in custom cabinets that make storing your kitchen wear incredibly easy and keep things organized.

At the end of the day, custom cabinets, because they’re designed with your kitchen gear in mind, wind up creating additional space for you to use.
