Unusual Home Storage Spaces

It’s important to think outside the box when it comes to storage spaces. You have likely put as many shelves and racks in your cabinets, closets and cupboards as you can, but now you want to think of new ideas and ways to organize them. Greenbar Secure Storage, Central Oregon can help you find the perfect self-storage unit to fit any item that doesn’t fit into your home or is too large for you, no matter what you do.

We can also help you maximize your storage spaces in your home. This includes unusual places like under stairs and above doors. Although you might need to hire someone to do the job, it is possible to create the storage spaces you need with just a little bit of time and creativity.

Below the Stairs

There will be stairs that lead to the next floor if your home is multi-story. There may be additional storage space under the stairs depending on how they are placed and constructed. Open shelves can be added to your first-floor staircase if it is located adjacent to the living room or hallway. This will allow you to display books, decorations, and artwork. Closed storage can be used for basement stairs. This allows you to store seasonal items or extra belongings in tubs and boxes.

Another option is to build storage within the stairs. You could create drawers that slide out from the risers between each stairway. Each step has a specific amount of space behind it. Although this home improvement will require some professional help, once the work is done you will have somewhere to store everything from shoes and toys to gloves and hats.

Above the Doors

Many homes leave the spaces above the doors unoccupied or use them to display photos or other artwork. You can add small shelves to increase storage if you have several empty spots. You could put shelves in the bathroom to store towels, while a shelf above the door could be used for decor or books.

It is important to be mindful of what you place on these shelves. Not everyone will be able to reach them to get what they need. You can display items on the shelves and not worry about it. You’ll need a way to get things down on shelves if you plan to place towels or books there.

The Ceilings

You may have high ceilings in your home. This extra space can help make it feel more spacious and open. You can add storage to make the most of your space. You could add racks to the ceiling if you have a high ceiling in your laundry room. This is similar to what you did in the garage.

Even though your basement ceilings won’t be as high, it is a great place to store ceilings. A basement ceiling rack can be great for outdoor gear or camping gear you want to store away at the end each summer.
