Summer time is finally here, and with the warmer weather can come a cramped household as the kids get finished with the school year. If you have nonessential items or clutter lying around the house, having the kids home all day can make your space feel a little cramped. If you’re trying to find a more spacious vibe this summer, there are several easy steps you can take that will help alleviate the claustrophobia.
If you have winter clothing or gear that you know you won’t be using this season, then vacuum-sealed storage bags are a great option to consider. Sealing up clothes or unneeded linens is not only a space-saver, but it can also help keep your goods dust-free and ready to go when you need them. Once sealed, you can then store your bags in an under-bed storage container or stack them in your closet.
What’s better than a bench in the hallway? A bench that doubles as a storage chest! You can keep hallway clutter to a minimum this summer by storing your shoes, sports gear and bags in your bench while still retaining its functionality. Other examples include installing drawers under your bed or shelves under your windowsill. Sears offers several great options.
Updating your outdoor space
You can help make your home feel more spacious by updating and expanding your space outdoors. This can include laying down a patio or building a deck. If you already have a deck, then you might consider constructing an under-deck storage system. Under your deck can be a great place to store your outdoor goods which you keep inside, such as sporting goods, gardening tools and construction equipment.
If all else fails and you have items in your home that you don’t want lying around, but that you also don’t want to part with, then storing them is a fantastic choice. Columbus movers E.E.
