Here are some practical storage tips to make your room more spacious
If you are in the middle of spring cleaning or simply want to clean your home, you may be looking for ways to store your items properly. Some of the clothes, shoes and furniture you find when cleaning can be discarded, while other items can be donated or simply put in storage until you are ready to use it again. Here are some practical tips for making your home messy without throwing away the things you need.
Storing your items in containers will prevent the items from landing on the floor or above your tables. Choose containers that give you enough space to store large quantities of clothing or shoes without the threat of abundance. Containers that can be stored under your bed or in the garage provide more open space in your home.
Label your storage items
Once you have found the right container for your items, mark each container appropriately. This way, you can go right to the items you need without taking hours to search for what you want. Color-coded labels also provide more organization. For example, note all compartments that contain kitchenware in one color and accessories and furniture that belongs in your children's bedroom in a separate color.
Use the shelf space
Take advantage of all the shelving spaces in your home to organize your items properly. Of course, you can also buy removable shelves to create additional storage space. A set of shelves in your home office can help you keep your books and files organized, and shelves in your child's room provide more space for toys.
Use double guard furniture
Furniture that serves more than one purpose can reduce the clutter in your home. An ottoman with a detachable top is a great place to store magazines and books, and coffee tables with storage space inside make the perfect area for storing the seasonal decorative items. You can also find beds for children's rooms that have drawers under them and act as a dresser for their clothes.
Use vertical shelves
Using vertical shelves can actually make space look taller than it is, and works well in the bathroom. Shelves that extend from floor to ceiling, or near it, can provide an aesthetically pleasing space for the extra equipment you have. Also use it in the bathroom as a decor tool. You can add color to the bathroom by stacking accent-colored towels on vertical shelves.
Rent a storage unit
If you have an abundance of clothing, sports items or other home goods that you do not use all year round, you can rent a storage space. This will keep the mess out of your home and give you access to the things you need when you need them. A storage device located near your home is ideal so you don't have to travel far to access your stuff. This is a great way to get rid of everything extra when you have organized your home and made more space.
If you do the cleaning and organization of your home regularly, it is much more likely that you keep track of everything in your home. This reduces stress when you need to find something important and helps you feel much more relaxed and comfortable in your home space.
