One of the easiest ways to create storage space
is to simply remove some belongings from the
residence. Items that are broken can be discarded,
while those things that still have utility can be
donated or sold.
Th e next step is to maximize the space of your
existing closets. Many closets are equipped with
just a shelf and a clothing rack, greatly limiting the
Investing in a closet organization system is one
way to transform a poorly utilized space. Th ese systems
can be purchased, oft en inexpensively, from a
home improvement center. Compiled of modular
racks and shelving, the positioning can be customized
depending on the size of the closet. Oft entimes,
the addition of shelving or another rack for
hanging clothes can solve some storage issues.
Homeowners may have to think vertically to solve
storage solutions. Wall space may be abundant in
a home where closets are not. Th erefore, shelving
and cabinets can be places to keep items neatly off
the fl oor. Hang hooks to hold hats and robes.
Storage can even be created in the bathroom, where
the space over the toilet can be used to hang a cabinet
to store hand towels and other toiletries if the
space under the sink has already been claimed.
In the kitchen, move food items out of cabinetry
and into a “pantry” you create elsewhere in the
house, such as a laundry room or garage. Th is frees
up more room for pots and pans. Cabinets that
have pull-out shelving help maximize tight recesses
of cabinets and keep things organized and in sight.
For those with limited cabinets, pots and pans can
be hung from a pot rack suspended in the kitchen.
