Storage Space Ideas

We could all use some more storage space in our home. No matter the size of our home, we all seem to accumulate more & more stuff. From holiday décor, to school projects our kids made. One thing that REALTORs always suggest before listing a home is to declutter. If you have these things already stored away, then you’re half way there!

  • Build overhead cabinets and shelves, not just to store stuff, but also add to the visual appeal of the room. Drawers and cabinets can be built higher towards the ceiling and used as vertical storage spaces allowing you a lot more leg room and considerably less clutter.

  • The higher you move up the walls, the more space you’ll have just waiting to be explored. Give bookshelves a library like feel by installing them from the floor up to the ceiling. Keep a light and portable ladder handy to make the climb. Similarly, say yay to a second set of kitchen cabinets above the ones you already have to stash away heavier or seldom used items.

  • Instead of investing in heavy and bulky furniture when you buy your home, go for multi-purpose items that can be used in more than one way and it should also have hidden storage space. There are pieces available that can be transformed from a work desk, to a coffee table, to a couch, along with having drawers and sliders for hiding away magazines and other belongings. It’s a total steal for your home.

  • From cabinets under the sink, drawers under the bed, to a whole closet behind dressers and mirrors, the opportunities are endless.


You may think that you are short on space if your house is small, but at the end of the day it’s your own creativity and organization that make a place look welcoming and big, no matter what the size. Storage solutions are not only smart, but they make your life easier. I suggest you GOOGLE some creative ideas for DIY storage solutions. There are many things that can be done on a budget with items you already have in your home!
