Four storage ideas to tidy your home
You’d be surprised how easy it is to clean up your home with the right storage and accessories. If you have something to store away, there’s a tub, container or shelving unit that will suit your needs. From heavy-duty tubs that can sit in the back of a tradie’s ute to clear units with drawers for kids toys, there’s a storage solution for every problem.
Clean up your garage
You can never have too much storage in your garage. The right storage will protect your tools, give you more room to store things and it helps you create a safer space to work in.
Heavy-duty shelf units are essential in your garage. Easy to put together, they are built to last and perfect for storing things away long-term like sports gear, Christmas decorations, photo albums and camping gear.
Utilising your garage wall space is a great way to keep things out of the way. Hang larger items like bikes or garden tools off garage hooks. You can also put up a few shelves or storage bins on the wall to save space.
Pegboards not only look great in your garage, but they keep your tools handy for when you need them. Hang a pegboard over your workbench and it will clear space on your bench area for you to work on.
Loads of laundry storage
You can make the most of your laundry space with the right storage. Mounting cabinets or shelves above your washer or dryer can utilise some unused space – as well as keeping cleaning products out of reach of children.
A well-planned linen closet can help you manage all of your bathroom essentials, towels, bed linen and much more. Wire shelves are easy to install and can help you deal with lots of tricky shaped things and different sized piles.
A fold-down ironing board is another simple way to save space in your laundry. It can be easily mounted in a cupboard or behind a door so it’s out of the way when you’re not using it.
Find the bedroom storage that suits
With the right storage, you can create a clutter-free bedroom where it will be easy to find the clothes that you’re looking for.
A wire wardrobe system is a great idea because it gives you the flexibility to choose your own combination of shelves, racks, baskets and drawers. They are really easy to put together and you can also add areas for shoes and hanging shelves.
Alternatively, a walk-in wardrobe is a luxury that you can easily add to your bedroom. Customise the set-up to suit your needs by choosing how many corner-shelving units, shelves, drawers and hanging rods you’d like.
A good tip is to store out-of-season clothing and manchester in storage containersunder your bed. You’d be surprised how much you can fit under a queen-size bed.
Everything in its place
Having an organised home helps you to know where everything is. It’s easy to achieve with the right storage accessories.
Modular storage cubes are a great way to store loads of things, and they can be stacked, mounted or even used as room dividers. Mix and match the inserts to store what you need. Different coloured inserts for kids’ toys will clean up your house in no time.
If you have lots of photo frames, souvenirs from your travels or knick knacks that you want to display, a floating shelf is a great idea. You’d be surprised how easy they are to put together.
