If you live in a smaller home or flat, you may constantly be battling with storage issues. As you accumulate more possessions, this issue only gets worse. This is why it is important to start to implement some storage strategies, to help you keep your home tidy and still have enough free space to live comfortably in. In this article we will discuss some of these strategies, including the installation of Fitted Wardrobes.
Before you invest in any storage option, you need to first assess your storage needs. Decide what type of possessions you will be storing, whether it is clothes, large collectable items, or books, each type of item will require a different storage solution.
The best way to utilise space in your home, is to take advantage of vertical space. By installing shelves or wall mounted racks, you can maximise your storage capabilities and still have access to the items whenever you want. This option is better used for books or items you are happy being on display. Another benefit of wall mounted shelves is that they do not impact your free space in your home, as the shelves are out of the way of the floor.
If you have a lot of clothes and are struggling to store them all in your bedroom, you may want to invest in fitted wardrobes. These can be made to measure and be fitted in any nook or gap in your bedroom, so they do not stick out into the room much like free standing wardrobes. They can also be made to match your room’s décor, so they do not look out of place. You can also have the storage options customised to accommodate your clothes, so if you need more hanging space, or more drawer space, your wardrobe can be made to match your exact needs.
You may want to consider using underutilised spaces in your home, as storage areas. Spaces such as under the stairs, or utility rooms, can often be great spaces to store your items, as they are out of the way and not used as much as main living areas. You can purchase storage containers to put in these areas, which will help to utilise the space even more. These containers can even be stackable, so if you can store even more of your items, and keep the less used items to the bottom of the container stack.
