How Can I Get Extra Storage Space in My House?

Is your stuff piling up around the house and garage? You’ve run out of storage space, don’t stress. We have some practical solutions to help you find the extra storage space you need.

How Can I Get Extra Storage Space in My House?

Find & Use the Dead Space

Where is the dead space in your home? Dead space includes window banks and recessed areas. They make ideal storage for cubbies and shelves. You can hang shelving around the perimeter of rooms and secure it from the ceiling or the walls.

Use Functional Boxes & Decorative Storage Bins

Storage boxes offer you a way to utilize the functionality and aesthetics of decorative foot lockers and chests. Decorative, fabric-covered boxes make convenient storage while maintaining impressive visual qualities.

Baskets and jars with lids are great for storing small items like remotes and keys that are easily misplaced. It’s a cheap and effective way to gain additional storage space; you can make them from household materials.

Use Dividers

Open storage spaces can become cluttered, making it hard to find things. Stop heaping everything into a drawer and segment the storage space with dividers. Everything has a place, and you’ll find it easily instead of digging around the draw for ten minutes.

You can order plastic dividers for drawers from online retailers like Amazon. Or you can make them yourself using cardboard boxes. Cut them to shape and fit them into the drawer to make your drawers clutter-free.

Furniture Storage Spaces

Integrated storage in furniture is a great way to use dead space around the home—store boxes under couches or beds. If you’re buying new furniture, look for units featuring built-in storage options such as drawers or cabinets. The drawers slide out, and you’ll find how much storage space they offer quite surprising.

Hanging Storage Solutions

Think vertically when looking to create more storage space around the home. Hang ceramic plant pots from the ceiling and use them to store kitchen gadgets and other items. You keep them off the counter and out of the way, freeing up more workspace in the kitchen.

This vertical storage idea works for the bedroom, allowing you to create dedicated storage for jewelry. You can also create shadow boxes to hang on the wall. Or fit a pattern to an old picture frame and use it as storage for necklaces, scarves, belts, and ties to save drawer or closet space.

Add Shelving

Adding shelving to the bedroom, lounge, and office is a great way to add extra storage space. Headboards with built-in shelving are a great choice for books, lamps, and anything you need to keep close to the bed.

If you don’t have floor space for a bedside table, consider fitting a single shelf beside your bed. Add as many shelves as you need around the room and keep everything off the floor.

Use Portable Cabinets and Drawers

Adding extra counter space in the kitchen is a great way to enhance your workspace. Buy a portable kitchen island to store pots, pans, crockery, and plates. Store your cookbooks out of the way and hang towels off the side rails.

Kitchen islands with casters, also known as utility carts, make moving the unit around the room easy. They free up space where you need it in a smaller kitchen and bring more workspace to the room.

Hang Hooks on Your Doors & Walls

Order a few door-hanging storage units for the bedroom., Use them to store shoes, underwear, ties, and accessories. These units come with easy fitment and plenty of accessible storage.

You can find hanging cabinets featuring construction with lightweight materials and hang them from the ceiling. These hanging closets are ideal for small apartments and college dorm rooms where storage space is at a premium.
