Monsters aren’t the only things under your bed…
Depending on the size of your bedroom your bed probably takes up a lot of space. Yeah the bed is nice and all to sleep on, but unbeknownst to many the bed can store a lot of storage beneath it. If the bed is off the floor you can place shoes or items beneath it. You can also buy a new storage bed, with cabinets that slide out to put your clothes or possessions in.
Fit space into your dresser like a pro!
You don’t know how many times we heard of a client getting new dressers that were not needed. I remember we came to one of our client’s apartment in Brooklyn to move some of his stuff to storage. He told us how he was getting a new dresser and with our expertise we decided to check his current dresser. We saw how his current dresser had clothes thrown in that weren’t even properly folded. We taught him a very space efficient way of folding and also implemented drawer dividers. After teaching him these couple of tips he came to a conscious decision that he didn’t need a new dresser.
Boxes, boxes on the wall, who’s the greatest one of all?
Place and paint boxes on the wall for a unique way to organize books, vitamins and little knick knacks.
Use shower curtain hooks for book bags or purses.
This is a great way to hang and store book bags and purses that take space elsewhere to a nice hanging position.
Milk every inch of your closet space.
You can use more clothing rods, and even install shelves to break up everything in a neat and efficient manner.
Now that we gave you some tips to improve storage space we hope you go out and do something about your storage problem!
