20 Ways to Double Your Home Storage Size
If you’re like most people, you could probably use more space in your home. However, adding an addition to your house is not always practical or possible. Fortunately, there are a few ways that you can make your existing space work harder for you. By being more efficient in your organization and storage, you can create the illusion of more space and actually double the amount of storage space in your home. Here are a few simple tips to get you started:
- Get rid of anything that you don’t use or need. This may seem obvious, but many people hang on to things “just in case” they might need them someday. If you haven’t used something in over a year, chances are you never will. Donate it or throw it away.
- Make use of vertical space. Shelves and racks that extend to the ceiling can provide a lot more storage than those that stop at eye level.
- Use multipurpose furniture. A coffee table with built-in shelves or a daybed that doubles as a sofa can help you make better use of your limited space.
- Consider wall mounted shelving or cabinets. These can provide significant additional storage without taking up valuable floor
