When my husband and I got married, we started looking for a house to move into. We knew we wanted to have kids so we wanted a house with lots of bedrooms and storage space for everyone. We found a great lot, worked out a home plan with a builder and made sure we had lots of great closets, pantries and storage areas throughout the house.
But now that we have three kids, the closets are full and there doesn’t seem to be a lot of storage space left. I’ve started getting creative with small space storage solutions to make better use of the floor, wall and even ceiling spaces in our house.
Small Space Storage Solutions
One of my favorite storage solutions is to go up. Use your empty wall space for shelves, fancy hangers and hooks and even hanging baskets and bins. I took a tiny corner of my walk-in closet and made an office space with plenty of storage just by using the wall. I added a desktop with lots of shelves above it all the way to the ceiling.
I added lots of inexpensive magazine folders and cardboard storage boxes to keep my things organized. Now I have a great work area with plenty of storage for all of my papers, files and supplies, all in a really tiny corner of a closet.
Do you have any great storage solutions for small spaces to share? I’d love to hear them!
