How to Add Storage to Your Home

The small spaces in your home can be difficult to work with. However, instead of being discouraged, utilize these tips and tricks to make your space look and feel larger. From paint to cabinetry, there are a variety of ways to optimize the space you have.

Invest in a Closet Upgrade

The first step to increasing storage space in your home is to take note of the space that you already have. For example, take a look at your home’s closet spaces. Instead of using your closet as a catch all, reorganize and renovate your closet space to be more functional. By installing different size shelving, you can increase the space and efficiency of the closet. Depending on your needs this may require a smaller upgrade or a full closet renovation. Nevertheless, you will be left with a more organized and efficient storage space. 

In order to tackle your closet upgrade, you’re going to need the right materials. Before you begin, we recommend talking with a professional to ensure you have the right lumber and tools.

Install Cabinetry for Added Space

Our next recommendation would be to add cabinetry. Cabinets are an ultimate game changer when it comes to storage space. In fact, cabinets are the perfect solution for storage because they can be customized to fit your family’s needs. When you customize your cabinets, you have the ability to add various features like adjustable shelving, hooks and much more. By adding cabinetry, you are not only increasing the space in your home, you are also increasing your homes value.

There are a variety of styles and brands to choose from when it comes to cabinets. Ultimately, the type of cabinets you decide on will depend on your budget. By talking with a professional prior to making your selection, you can ensure that you are getting quality cabinets that will meet your needs.

Utilize Storage Containers

Once you’ve made the upgrades to your closet and cabinetry, you can adapt to a new way of organization. If you don’t already utilize storage containers, we recommend giving it a try. By using storage containers, you can keep the new storage space clean and free of any clutter. Storage bins and other organization tools can be found online or at a variety of local stores.
