Simple Storage Ideas for Spaces Big and Small
by Joe Cooper
Finding the right storage solutions for every space in your home is a challenge, especially in small spaces like the bathroom. In an area like a garage, where space is more available, there is still the need to maximize it.
Storage in the Bathroom
Under-sink cabinets make great storage areas, but for most homeowners it's never enough. If you don't have a bathroom closet, bathroom shelves are the most accessible way to add bathroom storage. Thankfully, there are many bathroom shelves that will fit above the toilet or even above the shower.
Most bathroom shelves are small, minimizing their storage potential. Wire shelving units are functional because they provide a flat storage surface as well as the ability to hang bathroom items from them, like towels.
If you're like most homeowners, your bathroom may be the room in the house with the least amount of storage space. It takes some ingenuity to make the most of the limited bathroom storage space.
Storage Solutions for the Garage
In most homes, the garage is the largest storage space available. Anything and everything can be stored in a garage, depending on its storage options. Making the most out of your garage means using storage solutions that will last for years to come.
•Garage cabinets are the best way to maximize your garage storage space. Garage cabinets are best utilized lining the walls of your garage. Most garage cabinets line the back or side wall, but they can also extend across all three walls of a garage.
•Hanging storage is another smart garage storage solution. Wire racks can be easily installed on the ceiling in your garage, providing yards of storage in a space that would otherwise go unused.
•Garage shelving is another important storage solution. Using garage floor space and choosing shelves that are interchangeable are ways to maximize space in the garage.
