Storage Solutions in Bucks County
Storage solutions to make your home more efficient
Following a year filled with new routines and unexpected at-home activities, the storage capacity of our homes has been pushed to the limit. We faced storage problems we didn’t know we had since we were home 24/7 and had the opportunity to really dive into our homes and figure out how inefficient our storage solutions are. This year, it’s all about finding ways to hit refresh and help our homes work harder so we don’t have to. Closets for Less, serving Bucks County offers customized storage solutions for your home.
Here are a few storage solutions that are gaining popularity.
Mudrooms will continue to be in high demand in the coming year. More than just a drop zone, mudrooms are evolving to include dedicated storage for each household member. Cubbies, bins, lockers, crates, and hangers do the job as long as they’re marked for each user. Labels, color coding, or photos can identify storage and keep everyone on track.
Multi-functional, multi-use pieces of furniture make the most of space already in use. For example, an ottoman with storage at the foot of the bed instead of a bench, or a desk with drawers rather than a simple desktop can go a long way to increasing a room’s storage and organization capabilities.
Shelving room dividers
Because many of us are still manipulating our current living situations to adjust to work from home and virtual school, being able to add a floating shelving unit to divide a living space into a living/workspace is very popular. Freestanding shelving, like bookshelves or cube storage units, is available in many shapes and sizes to accommodate almost any space and style. It can be used to physically and visually separate areas while also adding storage.
Return to closed storage
Open shelving is still popular and will likely never go out of style, but closed storage solutions are growing in popularity thanks to their ability to combat the visual and physical clutter resulting from spending so much time at home. Utilize closed storage if working from home to help put work out of sight and mind at the end of the day or workweek. During the day, closed storage helps keep distractions away from the work area. Closet offices are a trendy, small space home office solution that boast a small workspace that can be hidden by using a spare closet. At the end of the day just shut the door.
Life in 2020 strongly impacted the kitchen, inspiring bigger islands, and more freezer space. This year, however, is all about creating efficient food storage. Spice organization and clear storage containers assist in food prep. The trend toward having clear containers to store food items instead of storing them in their original packaging become popular during the pandemic because we were worried about bringing contaminated items into our home. Such practical changes have long-lasting appeal, in part because they make cooking and snack-hunting easier.
