5 Ways to Add Storage to Your Home
When it comes to storage, it seems like you can never have enough in your home. While many people consider moving when they run out of space to store their items, there are many other options to consider before making such a big decision. There are several different ways you can add storage to your existing home. Here are a few different ideas.
Dead Space. If you have an older home, it’s possible that is has dead space. Dead space is unused space in a home, typically located behind a wall. Common places to find dead space are: an area under the stairs, behind the walls of a sloped ceiling, or awkward corners in a home. These areas can be opened up and refinished to create closets or general storage space.
Attic Conversion. If you have an unfinished attic with high ceilings, you can finish the space to create more storage opportunities - it can even become a bonus room for your family.
Living Room Built Ins. Living room built ins are a great opportunity to create more storage because you can utilize space all the way up to the ceiling. Built ins also add to the overall appearance of your home and make it look more finished.
Closet Organization. A standard closet typically doesn’t utilize space in the best way possible. Reorganize the layout to give your closet the most storage opportunities possible. You can purchase closet organizers or hire a closet specialty company to come in and create custom built ins for your space.
