The tiny home movement is in full swing. Whether it is by choice or by occurrence, living in a small space has its challenges. Probably topping the list of hardships is storing your belongings. With so little room for yourself, how can you find enough for your stuff as well? You may be surprised to see that there are many storage areas in your home outside of the cabinet. Here are some storage ideas you already have at home.
Under The Bed
Your bed can take up so much space. This space may have untapped potential for storing your stuff. It does not need to be a specialized bed with drawers under, all you need are containers that fit under your bed. These containers will help you organize, and quickly retrieve these items.
If your home comes with a fireplace, and you never use it, why not use the space for storage? It can make a lovely bookcase, an extra shelf. You may want to make sure you have sealed it and cleaned it properly before using it for your things.
Vertical storage is often neglected when looking for space. Your wall can house many items. Plus, it takes almost no floor space at all to house multiple shelving. Remember, shelves are not only for decors and picture frames. Much of your things can be organized and stacked here.
Do you need storage specifically for linens, towels, and other bathroom needs? Why not put some furniture in your bathroom and house a closet in it? For some bathrooms, there is enough space to add a small cabinet. Make full use of this space. It also makes reaching for those items so much easier.
Here's a useful tip. Cabinet doors need space to swing open. This limits the things you can put around it since you have to make way for the doors. If you need to save space, then replace the door with a curtain. This way, you can put furniture right beside the opening and still be able to open it.
From seasonal clothes to sporting equipment, you will always need a place to keep things. Whatever you need your storage for, you can find interesting and resourceful ways to keep them. All you need is to open your mind to the possibilities and be creative with the things you already have. Make the most of your home, the same way you can make the most of your insurance.
