1. Make the most of your wardrobe
If a single rail and shelf is all that is organising your wardrobe right now with shoe boxes stacked at the bottom – then this is the perfect place to start your spring storage sort out. If bespoke made storage isn’t in budget, modular components will help you make the most of your wardrobe and utilise dead space. Double rails, shelving, slim-line chest drawers, baskets and stackable storage will help you organise your wares like a pro. Inexpensive draw tidies will also help you organise on a micro level that will make a big difference with items such as underwear, ties and jewellery. Take inspiration from the gallery shown.
Don’t limit this tip to the bedroom either – these tips can also be used study spaces, workshops, and utility cupboards.
2. Readjust your shelving
It may sound simple but a lot of people forget about their adjustable shelving and actually moving it to suit their current storage needs. With just a few minutes of time adjusting them, you may find you’ve solved your storage problems and at no extra cost what so ever!
3. Hang it up
The hang it up theory can be applied to almost anywhere in the home. In the kitchen, consider hanging space for your pots and pans to free up valuable cupboard space or wall planters for your essential herbs and clear your windowsill. In the bedroom and bathroom, remember doors are wall space too – look for over-the-door products and you’ll be amazed and what you will find. From towel hooks and racks to super space saving shoe pockets and tie racks.
4. Make the Most of Floor Space
It may be considered bad feng shui, but if you’re stuck for storage, under the bed or otterman style beds provide a wealth of storage potential. Under cribs and even sofas also offer up great storage options. Other ideas to consider include under the cabinet draws in your kitchen – why waste the space and consider custom made draws in your new kitchen to store items such as gadget instructions and placemats etc.
