Do you constantly feel like you’re running out of space in your home? Finding it difficult to stay in control of the clutter?
Even the most organised person can make storage mistakes. Luckily most of these mistakes are easily fixed. To help you make the most of your space you need to start thinking about how you can improve your storage strategies…
First things first are narrow spaces. Our advice to you is – don’t ignore them! You shouldn’t be turned off by a challenge, there’s lots of useful storage that can be eked out of tight spaces. You just need to use your imagination and come up with a storage smart solution. And with the beauty of storage solutions today, you’re always going to find something to suit that space – especially if you create your very own made to measure storage system.
Secondly have you ever considered looking up? That’s right! There’s lots of potential storage above head height. It’s the perfect place to store all the things you don’t often use like ski gear or Christmas decorations. As well as looking up don’t forget to look down. It might be that you have some extra space below a window sill or in a storage bench. Making the most of these spaces also helps to make a room a lot bigger than it actually is. Bonus!
However the most important is ignoring the annual clear out rule. It’s something that we all know we need to do – but how many of us actually do it? If you haven’t touched an item in over a year then don’t you think that you ought to get rid of that item? Keeping your storage crammed full of stuff is just a quick way to lose track of items and create unwanted visual clutter. Instead, why don’t you give yourself a bit of visual breathing space and get rid of items you no long use – they’ll only sit there collecting dust.
If you’re guilty of any of these storage mistakes then you need to stop what you’re doing right now and find the best way to make the most out of your storage space.
