Five ways to free up storage space in your home

Space. The one thing everyone needs but often don’t know how to create. There are many ways to acquire storage space outside of your home such as a self-storage unit but these can often come at a high cost that most people will not want to pay.

So how can you free up storage space at home? Read on and see our top 5 tips for freeing up space for storage in your home.

Sell or donate all your unwanted items

Perhaps the best method for getting rid of your unwanted items is to sell or donate them to charity.

With so many online stores and digital marketplaces such as Vinted or Facebook Marketplace being readily available, selling your items online has never been easier.

On the other hand, you may wish to donate your items to charity. There are around 11,200 charity shops in the UK so pack a bag full of your unwanted items and drop them off at a charity of your choice.

Utilise outdoor storage

Whether you rent or own a house, you may find that you have an abundance of space outside your home which can be used to free up your storage space inside.

The options available for outdoor storage include sheds, garages and outdoor storage units which can be placed around various points of your outdoor space.

Secure your outdoor storage with strong door latches like these to avoid any damage from poor weather or thieves.

Make better use of wall space

Walls are an area of any home that people do not understand how to fully utilise. However, there are a plethora of great options for you to try such as shelves which will free up a lot of floor space.

Shelves can be used in the kitchen to store jars of coffee; they can be used in the bedroom to hold jewellery boxes or they can be used in the bathroom to hold our toiletries. The options are endless.

Utilise hidden storage areas

Every home has hidden spaces that we forget exist, but these can be used to store our items too. For example, there is often space underneath beds or sofas which can be used to pack away a lot of items whilst taking them completely out of our eye line. This will help your home to appear less cluttered too.

Reorganise cupboard and wardrobe space

Cupboards and wardrobes usually end up extremely cluttered if we don’t maintain them properly which means that we are missing out on vital storage space.

Try reorganising and tidying them and you will be amazed at how much extra space you can create for yourself.
