Interesting Storage Spaces


Irrespective of whether you have a small or big house, a little more storage space is always welcome. There are a lot of spaces within our bedrooms, bathrooms, living rooms and kitchens that have space that can be used. It’s just that we don’t realize the possibilities. What’s more, spaces like storerooms and staircases can also be utilized for storage.
Besides opting for furniture that can do double duty, one can also use old closet doors, window shutters, storage boxes, bins, small shelves, etc by redecorating and using them in unusual ways. They can also serve as pieces for making unique art work.
Most homeowners witness space crunch in their homes and start looking for more furniture. However, stuffing interiors with loads of furniture only reduce movement space and makes rooms look smaller. The solution therefore lies in reducing furniture but increasing storage space.

So here are a few storage ideas that can help:

  • Have old window shutters? Paint and join them to make an enclosed container to store umbrellas.
  • Use old forks to tuck in your notes in place of the sticky notes. You could hang them up above your study or wok table.
  • Drill in hooks on the walls of your storeroom to hang folding chairs that you use once in a while.
  • Have too many baskets with covers? Make them over with laces or ribbons and stack them up either in storage rooms or under the stairway.
  • Use your old closet door as a magazine storage rack by removing the panes and keeping the frame intact. Let the door knobs stay and definitely paint them.
  • The old window shutter can also be used to store letters or cards by fixing it up a wall. Use stickers to make them more appealing/
  • Have an old suitcase? Create pockets in it using firm handmade paper of various colors and use it to store small utilities like stitching kits, painting tools, etc.

There is a lot more that can be done using the old and existing items in your house. You just need to look around for the correct objects and use your creativity to make them unique yet useful.
