Whether you have lived in your home for many years or only a couple, it seems like you are always running out of space to put things. You cannot just move every time you feel like you are outgrowing your home. What is the solution? Organization and plenty of storage can help.

Buy Furniture That Doubles as Storage
There are a number of furniture items that can do double-duty. When you find the right furniture, keeping things out of sight as well as using it for the original purpose, will allow you to free up space. Choose chairs, couches, and ottomans that have storage underneath.
They are great for keeping anything that you use occasionally, such as games, movies, and throws, hidden away until they are needed. All of these items can create clutter in your living area. You still use them, so keep them together until you are ready for them.
The garage is already one of the most often used areas for storing things. It is easy for this space to become disorganized. If you think about it, you have all sorts of unused storage in the garage. Ceilings provide plenty of space to hang bikes and other things out of the way. One example of a company that offers overhead storage cabinets is Garage Appeal.
Extra Space in the Kitchen
Who doesn’t need extra space in the kitchen? No matter how many cabinets you have, there will always be things that just do not seem to fit anywhere. It may be difficult to find a place to store very large baking pans or maybe you need somewhere to keep holiday platters or table décor.
An area most people do not think about is the space at the bottom of their lower cabinets. By installing drawers underneath, they can become the perfect place for things that do not fit conventional storage or other items that are only used certain times of the year. The drawers can also be used for hiding valuables, particularly if they do not have handles. Most people would never think that this is anything but extra space.
