Maximising your home storage can help you declutter your space and make your home feel more organised and functional. Here are six home storage solutions:

Utilise vertical space for home storage

When it comes to storage, many people focus on horizontal surfaces like shelves and low drawers. But don't forget about the vertical space in your home! Use hanging organisers, wall-mounted shelves, and tall bookcases to take advantage of the height in your space and create more storage.

Wall-mounted shelves

Invest in multi-purpose furniture

Instead of filling your home with standalone storage solutions, consider investing in furniture that has built-in storage. For example, a coffee table with drawers, a bed with roll-out drawers underneath or a bench with a lift-top lid. These solutions can provide you with additional storage while serving a functional purpose in your home.

Multi-purpose furniture as a home storage solution

Use the back of doors for your home storage

The back of doors are often overlooked as potential storage areas, but they're an ideal space for hanging organisers and other items. Install hooks or over-the-door organisers to utilise this space and keep frequently used items within easy reach.

There are lots of examples of this space being used to store not only coats and shoes but also jewellery, music, home office supplies, cooking ingredients and more.

Repurpose unused items as a home storage solution

Before buying new storage solutions, take a look at the items you already have and see if they can be repurposed for storage. For example, a wine rack can be used to store rolls of wrapping paper, a ladder can be used to hang towels in a bathroom and a chest can double up as a coffee table.

Take advantage of underutilised spaces

Identify areas of your home that are underutilised and consider how these spaces can be transformed into storage areas. For example, the space under a staircase can be turned into a hidden storage closet, the area above a kitchen cabinet can be used for extra pantry storage and the space between the studs in a wall can be used for shallow shelves.

Consider storage solutions for your walls

Wall-mounted shelves and cabinets can be a great way to add storage to your home without taking up valuable floor space. Install shelving above your desk, in your entryway or in your bathroom to create additional storage and display space.

Wall-mounted shelves for more home storage

By following these tips, you can maximise the storage in your home and create a more organised and functional space. Happy organising!
