Easy Ways To Add Storage To Your Home

One thing many family homes can never have too much of is storage. If you are renovating your home, chances are you have been able to get creative and make sure your new look home works well for you as well as looking good.

But, if what you need are quick ideas to help transform your home into a smart storage packed space, this post could have just what you need when it comes to low cost but practical storage ideas.

Loft

Go up and think hidden. So many homes underutilize the loft area for storage space. Having all your clutter stored well but hidden from day to day is always going to be a win-win situation. Instaloft can help you transform the space at the top of your home to an area you can feel confident is going to be suitable all year round for storing your items either in the long term or until the season changes.

Under the stairs

While we’re discussing unused spaces, what are you currently doing with the space under your stairs? Have you thought about opening it up and adding in some shelving units? Add cabinets or purpose-built units to maximize the space in this often overlooked area and build a stylish storage area that meets all of your needs. Take inspiration from those who have done this to see how you can transform this wasted space into something that is practical and compliments your home in a good way.

Go up not out

When we think of storage furniture, does your mind automatically go to big bulky units? Throw that idea out of the window and look at how you can use your walls for storage in a completely different way.

The trick is to integrate a ladder style unit to your walls that is not only decorative but has another purpose too. The best thing is, they can be as discreet or eye-catching as you need them to be and whether you opt for minimalist metal shelves that hang on the wall fully as a picture does, or you go for the popular ladder style units that stand on the floor and creep up your walls. You can be sure to find a unit that fits for you and adds style and functionality to your room.

Hidden Storage

Not one for your clutter to be on display? For those who prefer their storage to be a bit more discreet, how about hiding it in plain sight. For many years now, people have been buying furniture items that double up as storage for their home and their garden (did you know you can buy garden benches with hidden storage for all your decorative garden items during the winter?)

Think ottomans, storage seats, or even rails on shelves! Is your wardrobe taking over the bedroom or, indeed, your children? Then why not make art out of them by adding hanging rails to shelves and adorning the walls with some choice items to create a lovely piece of wall art yet free up some valuable storage space for other items?
