How to Maximise the Storage Space in Your Low Fell Home

How to Maximise the Storage Space in Your Low Fell Home

Property Sarah Mains 27th September 2022

Whether you live in a tiny apartment, a three-bedroom semi or a mansion, there’s one thing you probably want more of – storage. It’s not exciting, it’s not earth-shattering, it’s just space. But it definitely matters. 

 

We’ve all got a lot of stuff. Putting it away (or hiding it) is something that seems to occupy a lot of time and patience. 

 

In this quick read, we’ve pulled together some storage hacks to help tidy that clutter and maximise your space. It’s not rocket science, but it might give you a few ideas. 

 

1) Look up

Ceilings are wide, empty spaces that offer a huge amount of storage space. Obviously not suitable for every room, ceiling storage racks are a good idea if you’ve got a garage or spare room piled high with stuff. From strong metal racks to hanging shelves, they’re a great way to box up your bits and pieces and get them out of the way. 

 

2) Cleaning clutter

Brooms, mops, feather dusters – they all take up space that you just don’t have, so what’s the best way to store them? Wall-mounted broom organisers are our favourite way to save space. Many just stick on so there’s no need to drill holes. Use them on the backs of doors and free up cupboard or floor space. 

 

Store your cleaning products in organiser boxes, many of which come with handles so you can carry them round as you clean your house. 

 

3) Under the bed 

While this is one that most people have clocked onto, it’s the way you store things that actually matters. Don’t just shove them under the bed and forget about them. Try vacuum packing clothes to get more space or buying storage boxes with wheels for easy access. Keeping your things organised is key to making the most of under-the-bed space. 

 

4) Toy tidy up 

If you’ve got kids, you’ve probably got mountains of old toys, stuffed animals and other bits that clutter up your space. Keep like items together and clearly labelled. You’ll never have to worry where Bugsy the bunny rabbit has disappeared to and can avoid stepping on bits of Lego. Transparent boxes are useful, so you can see where stuff is without having to hunt around and empty everything out. 

 

Toy rotation is also a good way to keep your little kids busy and your floor clutter-free. Under-fives seem to accumulate a lot of toys very quickly, so keep a big box of toys handy and rotate them every few weeks.
