How to Maximize Storage in a Small Space
Sometimes we just don’t have enough space. We’ve all been there.
Your house might have been plenty big when you moved in but unfortunately, the longer you stay, the more you accumulate.
Well we put our creativity to the test to come up with some creative storage solutions for all of you out there that have more stuff than storage. Yeah, I’m looking at you.
Under The Bed
Take a peak under the bed? No monsters? Good. Then there should be room for storage… or at least some much needed organization. Get a storage bin with rollers for easy access. If you’re big on DIY, find an old dresser and dress up the drawers, slap on some wheels and you’re good to go.
Don’t have a bathroom closet? Sadly, many of us don’t. So what in the world are we supposed to do with our towels? Try a wine rack. It’s clever, useful and even decorative. You’ll need one that hangs on the wall to save as much room as possible. Just roll your towels instead of folding them so they fit nicely in the wine rack.
Pot and Tupperware Lids
Pot lids are every organizers nightmare. There are top heavy and too awkward to stack. Enter the magazine rack. If you’re cabinet is big enough, hang a magazine rack inside to store pot lids. They fit securely in each slot so you can grab and go as easy as the pots themselves.
This trick can go for Tupperware lids as well. Instead of struggling to stack and sort, just organize them in a magazine rack or even a dish drying rack.
If you’re anything like me, you come home with a handful stuff to just drop on the counter or table. You’ve got keys, a wallet, work papers, mail and so on. All the stuff you need to keep on hand everyday. Try getting some baskets with hooks to hang in your entryway. You can buy them at the store or make them yourself. Some of them will have a mirror to check yourself out when you’re on your way out.
Over-the-door shoe organizers are good for almost anything. Use them in a kid’s room to organize toys, in a closet to organize cleaning supplies or a bathroom to organize all your toiletries. Oh and don’t forget you can still use them for shoes.
So go forth, organize!
