Nowadays, most people choose a minimalist design for their houses which is based on de-cluttering and keeping it simple as much as possible. But even if we do not follow a minimalist theme keeping our house tidy and de-cluttered is preferred. If we are doing so, we need to think up new storage places and ideas. Here are 8 of them:
1- the most evident thing to do is install shelves. Shelves help you utilize the wall space to store away things and decorate at the same time. If you are going to install a cabinet choose a tall one so that you could set enough shelves inside to store things.
2- Install hooks. Hooks help you store and hang up a lot of things: bags, clothes etc. They are used a lot in the kitchen where they are good for hanging up pots and pans and other kitchen utensils. They are also great for decoration since you can use them for hanging pot plants.
3- Plastic bins are important tools for organizing your house. Use them to store away things you do not need. Get a few and after storing things label them.
4- Utilize your wall space with whatever means possible. You could install shelves, cabinets and use them to hold books and ornaments.
5- Do you have too many shoes in your closet? Then it is time to install shoe racks. Do not let throw your shoes about or try to stack them in your closet. Set shoe racks to store your shoes.
6- Another neat trick is using bulletin boards to hang jewelry. They will actually look pretty on it too.
7- Build storage sheds or lean to sheds outside your house. You can use them to store away things that are not easily affected by temperature variation. I know that people use them often to put away lawn mowers and barbeque grills.
8- Use vacuum seal storage bags. They are really handy since they can save a lot of space and protect things from dust and insects. Use them, then put them under the bed.
These are just a few useful tricks that will help you with storing things and keeping your place clutter free and organized. So do not hesitate to use them in your house.
