Love and money are two things that most people feel they can never get enough of. However, if given time to think of a third category of wants or needs that are in short supply, after giving it a little thought, storage would probably come in a close third.
It seems as though no matter how much room we have in our homes, given time, we are simply going to run out of storage solutions. Apparently we excel in our role as consumers yet unfortunately our homes do not grow at the same rate as our ability to purchase new and wonderful items.
Following are five simple and inexpensive storage solutions that will help extend the storage capabilities of your home:
Magnetic/Metal Wall Strips
Use the spare wall space in your kitchen to attach a metal strip from which you can attach pots and pans which will enable you to free up valuable cupboard space or attach a magnetic strip where you can store your knives and free up drawer or counter space.
Plastic Storage Boxes
If you have room under your bed frame, invest in some plastic storage boxes. They are transparent, enabling you to see what you have put inside and also protect your items from dirt and dust, and are also very affordable. Suddenly the “dead” space under your bed can become functional.
One of the big reasons why we seek storage solutions is so that our house remains tidy. A laundry basket is a much better solution than just throwing your dirty clothes on the laundry floor. Plastic laundry baskets are light, hard-wearing, and come in different colors to suit any laundry.
Your storage solutions are not limited to the indoors. If you have a yard, then outdoor storage is definitely on the cards. Deck boxes are perfect for smaller items such as children’s toys and smaller gardening tools. They come in different colors and sizes to match both the color scheme of your house and the size of your yard. They are also weather-resistant and protect contents from the elements.
For larger items such as lawnmowers and bicycles, plastic sheds are an excellent storage solution. Like deck boxes, they come in different sizes and colors, are easy to assemble, rarely if ever require a permit and provide an affordable and all-weather solution for your storage requirements.
