Tips to help you maximize storage space

We all tend to pile up one thing after another, not even thinking whether we need it nor whether we have space where to put it. Hence, people very often find themselves in desperate need of more space. Unfortunately, we cannot change houses because our shopping habits have gotten out of hand recently. That is why we need to think of more useful ways to maximize storage space we do have. We here at U.Santini Moving & Storage will help you add more storage space to your home with a couple of simple, yet effective ways.

With the help of our ideas on how to maximize storage space, your room will never again be cluttered.

The best way to maximize storage space is to get rid of some things

If we are being completely honest, the most efficient way to de-clutter your home is to throw away the things you do not need. Let`s face it, we all have some stuff we keep lying around because we feel attached to it. Therefore, before doing anything else to add storage space to your home, you should first do some cleaning. Go through every room and decide what to keep and what to throw. Tip: if you cannot remember the last time you used the item in question, it is safe to say you should donate it or throw it away.  Or you can always find some self-storage Brooklyn facilities to take care of the stuff for you if you absolutely cannot imagine parting ways with it. The choice is all yours!

Maximize storage space with shelves

Whether it`s adjusting the ones you already have, or adding new ones, shelves are a great way to add some storage space to your home. A shelf can have a very pleasing look to the eye, while at the same time being highly functional. The first thing to do when maximizing storage space with shelves is to adjust the ones already in your home. How to do it you ask?

  • Maximize storage space by adjusting the shelves to suit your height.
  • Remove the open vertical space.
  • Measure the tallest object you would like to keep on that shelf, and then add another 2 inches in height to it.

After doing this, consider adding some more shelves in each room. The best thing about them is that they are cheap, easy to install, look very decorative and can easily blend into any room. And, of course, they are a great way to maximize your storage space in any room.

Another way to maximize storage space is to use a storage chest

A storage chest can fit well into any decor. Whether it`s antique, modern, luxurious or dreamy, you can always find one that will look nice in your room. They are easy to transport, so local movers Brooklyn will have no trouble relocating it if you ever happen to move. Therefore if you are looking for a convenient and useful way to add more storage to your house, look no further. A storage chest comes to your rescue.

There are no right or wrong items you can put into a storage chest. Books, clothes, other storage containers – it all fits well. And, if you have no time to go around furniture stores in your town, you can always shop online. Enjoy the benefits of the 21st century.

Add more storage space underneath your bed

If you think about it, you will realize that we have so much unused space under our beds. All that emptiness can be readjusted to serve as a great storage space. One way to maximize bedroom storage space is to add bins with wheels under your bed. You can put a lot of things into them such as towels, bedsheets, and clothes. Moreover, there are already pre-made beds that come with drawers or other types of containers. So if you feel like investing some money into storage space, this is a good option for you. And, if you ever have to move, our furniture movers Brooklyn will easily carry your bed, along with your extra storage space into your new humble abode.

Use hooks and maximize storage space

Another rather easy way to add storage space is to strategically place hooks around your house. Need more space to hang your clothes on? No worries, just add some hooks at the back of your doors and voila. Just like that, you got more clothes hangers. To maximize kitchen storage space, add some hooks on the walls to serve as holders for your pots and pans. When it comes to the bathroom, they can serve as towel holders. As you can see, the ways you can use hooks is infinite. We consider the use of hooks as one of the best Brooklyn moving tips we can give you!

Ottomans do more than just look trendy

Ottomans serve as a lot of things – extra seating, footrest, coffee table, and a decorative piece of furniture. However, ottomans can possibly serve best as living room storage space. Yes, you heard that correctly. There are ottomans that come with under-lid storage. You can use this storage to place your sheets, blankets or even books. The options are limitless. And, the best thing is that you can customize your upholstery to suit your preferences. One cannot go wrong with the use of an ottoman.

The conclusion

We hope we gave you more than enough ideas on how to maximize storage space in your home. We have just one more piece of advice for you before we conclude. Never forget to spring-clean your Brooklyn home as this is the best way for you to always keep your house clutter-free. It is much easier to add storage space to a de-cluttered house!
