If you have run out of room and are considering selling or donating your prized possessions, you might want to first consider maximizing your space at home. There are a number of underutilized areas in your home that could be used for storage. With a little elbow grease and ingenuity, you may find that you have plenty of space in your home for new stuff!
Find New Storage Spaces
There are corners, crevices, and nooks in your home that you may not be using. For example, the space below enclosed staircases is great for storage. You can put in shelves, create closets, or just shove some storage containers below the stairs. You can also maximize your space by installing shelves above your head in hallways. You can even create your own closet-like space by purchasing a decorative folding screen. This is perfect for large items such as skis and golf clubs.
Get Your Bathroom in Order
There are plenty of creative ways in which you can maximize your bathroom space. You can attach extra hooks to your shower rod to hold a net bag or bath brush. You can erect shelves to hold toiletries and towels. You can even hang a wicker basket on the wall for towels and incidentals.
Store More in Your Bedroom
Many bed manufacturers now sell beds with pre-built drawers underneath. If your bed does not have pre-built storage, you can still use that space. Consider purchasing flat storage containers that can slide under your bed. You can also build a headboard storage unit that can be used for books, linens, and reading lamps. You may be inspired after building a headboard; why not construct an empty ottoman that has storage space on the inside?
Take Control of Your Kitchen
Perhaps the most effective way to free up space in your kitchen is to get your pots and pans out of your cabinets. Hooks and storage shelves are perfect for getting your pots in an easily accessible area out of your cabinets. You can clear up counterpace by putting your microwave on a raised shelf. You can also create more space by organizing your utensils and cutlery with dividers.
