How do you handle household storage? It’s a never-ending battle that’s for sure! All you want is to find your holiday decorations or seasonal clothes. The culprit? Bins and bags and boxes. Nothing has a home! Your cabinets are crammed, the attic is inaccessible and anything that goes into the basement never seems to find a way out. For most of us, an efficient household storage system may seem like an impossible dream.
You might be yearning for a larger home. However, a bigger home is not the answer. Anything you store, no matter what size your home is, always finds a way to become chaotic and unorganized. The more room we have store stuff, the more stuff we seem to have.
So what is the answer to our storage dilemma? Some hard work and some help can steer you in the right direction. Calling on a custom closet company can help in ways you had no idea. That jam-packed garage can take on the clarity of a storage system that lets everything has a place. Your master bedroom closet now seems as lovely as a chic clothing boutique. You would be amazed at the things a pro can do!
Here’s how you can help now. Figure out a plan of action that maps out where everything should go and then put it there. This way, when a custom closet company comes to figure layouts, they know exactly what they are working with. It would behoove you as well to have a notebook with where items are. When you are looking for that new tablecloth you bought last year, you will know exactly where it is.
The next thing you want to do is figure out what you are keeping and what you are getting rid of. Yes, you can get rid of some things, it won’t kill you! You also want to figure out what items are stored longer than others. These will be items you don’t necessarily see all the time but when you need them, they will be right where you left them.
Necessary stored items include matching tools and hardware with the garage shelf and toolbox. Assign seasonal decorations to an easy to reach the area in the attic. Decide where it makes sense to store certain things. Storing your tax returns from the last decade in a bin in your master closet is an awful waste of space. Toss a few years worth and save the rest in a bin in the basement. Once you have decided where everything goes the pro can come in and do the rest.
Hiring a custom closet company in Bucks County like Closets for Less is a no hassle, stress-free way to get the storage your home needs. Is cheaper than you think and takes little time to design and install. Once you have a home for everything in your house, you will also be less likely to bring new things into your house. You will know where things are and not have to buy new because you can’t find what you already have!
