Effective Way to Use Free Space at Home

You might not realise it but you probably have more space than you think, you just don’t know how to use it effectively. Re-organising the house and choosing the right storage solution can solve this problem and get your home in order. A few simple ideas to consider that won’t break the bank involve drawers or boxes fitted underneath beds, converting attic space to store items safely, building an outhouse or shed, and adding shelves under the stairs.

Kids bedrooms are always a pain as they go in there, trash it and then leave all the tidying up to you! There are some great storage ideas for children’s rooms and a clever way to get them into helping is by investing in some colourful plastic storage boxes where toys can just be thrown in and tidy-up time takes next to no time. You can even get plastic boxes to co-ordinate with the rooms.

Drawers under beds can hold a lot of items and don’t take up any extra space, or if your child is old enough for a loft bed then get it fitted with a workbench underneath and use it to store their belongings in. Hanging shelves are always useful and come with a variety of bracket styles. If you use wall-mounted units with adjustable shelves then as the child gets older the height of the shelving can be adjusted to grow with them.

The garage space is also an extra space that is often wasted, everything seems to get thrown in there but then either gets forgotten about or can’t be found when needed! Fitting practical shelving and storage units means you can store lots of larger items as well as park your car, and it can be organized very quickly. Transferring larger items, or those not used often, to the garage will free up a lot of space inside the house making it less cluttered and easier to keep tidy.

Use your garage to hang larger items on the walls – surfboards, ladders, power tools and sports can be stored out of harms way and are less likely to get damaged. Left lying around on the floor or in a corner they could easily be tripped over or turned into a plaything for bored children.

Most garages are large enough for a small workbench and shelving units to be fitted at the back, hang your power tools here for convenience and safety. Other items can be put away in plastic boxes and shelved keeping everything organized, label the boxes and you’ll never lose anything again. There are lots of larger items we collect when we have a family that just get in the way inside the house – kids bikes, BBQ equipment, gardening tools, and patio furniture – pack them safely away until the weather is fine again.

Effective storage can turn your garage space into a quality workspace and harmless area as you remove tools and other items left lying around to safer locations. Leaving sharp tools and other expensive equipment within easy reach is just asking for trouble. Also remember to keep potentially dangerous items such as fertilizer and weed killers away from anywhere they can be picked up by young children, either on a very high shelf is advised or preferably locked away in a storage cupboard.

You can also incorporate various sized plastic boxes and bins into the home for clearing clutter and making more space. There’s a huge selection available in all shapes and sizes, from colourful stack n’ nest boxes and tray stackers to strong polypropylene boxes with snap shut lids and small containers for screws and bolts.
