Think outside of the box with home storage requires searching through the unexplored area in your home, like the staircase. The hollow area beneath the stairs is first-rate real estate you cannot afford to overlook. Depending on the amount of space you can work with, install storage lockers, a storage bench, shelves or cupboards beneath the stairs and presto – you’ve just made additional metres of storage. The area beneath the stairs is also the ideal spot to store bicycles.
If you desire to elevate your storage project, think about installing drawers in your staircase. Staircase drawers can be included in your DIY home improvement, but it’s wise to hire a builder to make a structural evaluation of your staircase before moving forward.
A lot of Australian families use only about 70 per cent of storage possibilities in their home. How? By ignoring the overhead storage space. Thirty percent of a home’s total floor area is in the roof cavity. This makes an attic conversion a great solution if you don’t have home storage.
If you’re really decided about harnessing all possible home storage, you can do a DIY attic conversion. Though the outcome will probably not be a elegant space, the additional storage area is definitely a saving grace.
If you would like to convert your attic space into a functional space, it’s a good idea to meet with a builder to make sure the space meets building laws.
If you lack overhead space, consider sub-storage possibilities. You can find lots of storage area under hallway tables, under the bed, under couches, and more. The space under your bed or under the study desk can be used to store out of season clothes held in air-tight storage boxes. The kids’ toys, books, magazines, winter blankets and other similar items can be stored in decorative boxes placed around the house.
Investigate the spaces around your home that are normally overlooked and you can find inspiration to make useful storage spaces. Create a clutter-free and organised home in no time.
