Low On Space? Storage Solutions That Actually Work!

Sometimes it can feel like the walls are closing in on us, can’t it? A home that once had plenty of space can suddenly fill up, perhaps due to a growing family or simply because furniture and belongings have multiplied over time.

Does this sound familiar? Have you desperately been trying to find a way to make everything fit and are now contemplating a move, so you can get some much needed space? Well, before you rush into moving, why not try some of these storage solutions that actually work – you may find that you quickly have all the space you need.

Storage Unit

Firstly, you need to have a clear out. Perhaps, part of the reason you don’t have space is because you are hoarding things you don’t really need. Throw out rubbish, donate to charity and sell anything you can.

Once you have done that you will probably be left with a few things that you don’t want to get rid of but you don’t need in your home. What do you do with these? Well, you could put them into storage. Find a local self-storage unit with unlimited access during opening hours, then you can pick up items or add to them as and when you please.

Multifunctional Furniture

Your bed takes up a lot of room, doesn’t it? While, you of course need it to sleep in, there is also a lot of dead space underneath. So, why not swap it for an ottoman bed? This opens up to reveal a large storage space perfect for clean bedding and towels or even clothes and shoes. Keep this in mind when you are buying furniture, you can find plenty with multiple uses.

Vertical Furniture

If you go for vertical furniture rather than horizontal furniture, it will take up your wasted wall space rather than much needed floor space. Think clear stackable boxes, which can be piled up the wall and added to when you need even more storage. Plus, because they are clear you can see the contents inside, so you don’t have to tip everything out to find what you are looking for.

Vacuum Pack Bags

These bags are perfect for storing bulky items in a fraction of the space – including clothes as well as spare pillows and bedding. Not only will it save space, it will also protect the contents from dirt, dust and damp. Why not use it for your summer clothes during winter and vice versa – then pop it on top or at the back of the wardrobe, out of the way.   

Use Dead Space

There are plenty of spaces around your home that are being wasted because they don’t appear to be suitable for storage. But, actually, they are perfect! Take the space above the door in the bathroom, for example, if you put a shelf here it can be used for clean towels, boxes of toiletries and so on.

Talking of dead space, what if your artwork could open up to reveal hidden storage? Take a look at this blog and find out how it can.

It may feel like you are low on space, but there are plenty of storage solutions that actually work and will give you the space you need in next to no time.
