Storage and Organization Solutions For Your Home

As the items continue to clutter your Ann Arbor house, you wonder if maybe the solution is paying for an off-site storage spot to make more room. But if you look around your home, you will find that you already have plenty of storage space in your home…it just needs to be maximized! To do so, you need to start looking into shelving and organization solutions for different rooms.

Garage Storage

Handyman Connection of Ann Arbor will help you turn any garage into a storage haven.
Peg boards make great tool storage systems that can help to organize power and non-power tools and keep them readily available. Storage cabinets on wheels also work very well in garages as convenient storage space solutions.

In the garage, storage shelves filled with plastic storage totes can keep a variety of items organized and off the floor. Everything from children’s clothing to garden tools can be safely stored in a storage solution you can make yourself.

Laundry Room

The laundry room tends to get cluttered with dirty clothes, laundry supplies and ironing supplies. One solution to help organize the laundry room and get clutter off the ground is to buy adjustable shelving racks and use laundry baskets instead of shelves. This is a great way to not only organize clothing, but it can be used as a way to store laundry supplies as well.

Closets

There are several professional closet organizing solutions you can invest in that will make plenty of room in every closet and give you the space you need for your clothes. But there are also closet organization ideas you can use on your own that will make plenty of space as well.

Your closet would benefit from large hooks on the walls as places to hang shirts and pants. If you invest in a vacuum bag system for storing winter clothes during the summer and vice versa, you will find plenty of space for those seasonal clothes under the bed or in the back of the closet.

Shoe racks are excellent for closets because they make it easier to keep pairs of shoes together, and they also offer a convenient shelf for keeping other closet items close by. You can invest in tiered clothes hangers that allow you to hang four and five items in a space that used to be utilized by a single piece of clothing. With some creative closet organizing, you can keep your closet clean and keep all of your items close at hand.

Kitchen Storage

There are several small storage and organizing tricks for the kitchen that can result in better access to your cooking items and make your kitchen safer. If you have space in the middle of your kitchen, then invest in a small island. With an island, you get storage space and more counter work space as well. If you get the island on wheels, then you can move it to the side when you need to.

You can maximize your corner kitchen cabinet space by installing a Lazy Susan spinning shelf unit that will significantly increase your cabinet space. You can also install hooks along the bottoms of your cabinets to act as places to put mugs and gravy boats.

There is plenty of extra storage space throughout your home. The trick is to open up your imagination and find it. If your imagination isn’t helping, then Handyman Connection of Ann Arbor can come to your home and create the space you need. Call us today for your free, no-obligation estimate!
