3 ideas for home storage

Storage space in the home is something that you really have to think about to find the best options. 

In general, people do not like to get rid of things. We always find a reason or an excuse to keep something that we don’t use anymore. We keep it “just in case” we may need it one day. 

Today’s article will help you find storage space in your home and give you tips to make the most of the space you have. 

Space, order and cleanliness

Surely these words sound familiar to you… Yes! They are principles of Feng Shui.

Remember that Feng Shui is a philosophy that seeks positive energy flow through harmonious environments. 

Even though your house may not be decorated according to the principles of Feng Shui, they do come in handy when thinking about home storage. 

We recommend that you remove things that you no longer use from the home. These things only serve to clutter your space.

You can donate whatever items are still in good condition. Someone else can surely use them. This should make you feel better about giving your things away.

Once you get rid of those items you don’t need, it should be much easier to organize what you have left. You may even have space for a few new things.

This is how Feng Shui and its principles of order and cleanliness can help you to create space to store things.

Use your space well

There are certain things that make it a little easier to store things in the home. To continue, we will recommend products that we think are essential to help you optimize space. 

1. Under the bed

Raise your hand if you don’t have anything under your bed. 

Surely you all raised your hand, right? No, of course not. Most of us store things under the bed because it is an excellent place to store things. 

It is a relatively large space and the best part is that it’s hidden.

To optimize this space, we recommend that you use items such as “bajocamas” (under bed storage containers) – link in Spanish.

As the name suggests, bajocamas are storage boxes that fit under your bed. They come in different sizes and they even have wheels. The wheels make pulling them from under your bed much easier.

Oh! And don’t worry about storage odor. The boxes are ventilated so your clothes won’t smell like they’ve been packed away.

2. Drawer organizers

Another great item for storing items in the home are drawer organizers. These let you organize and classify everything in your drawers.

You can use them for any kind of drawers: bathroom, kitchen, clothes, socks, underwear, accessories, etc.

They come in different sizes and they can usually be modified to the number and sizes you need.

3. Vacuum bags

Without a doubt this is one of our favorite solutions for home storage. 

These are simply plastic bags with an opening for sucking out the air with a vacuum cleaner. If you don’t have a vacuum cleaner, many of the bags come with a device to remove the air from the bags. It’s usually smaller and easier to use than a vacuum cleaner.

This solution is ideal for storing linens, towels and clothes that are out of season. The bags are available in different sizes. You can easily find them online or in major department stores.

Conclusion

Home storage can be overwhelming because you are forced to deal with all the things you have accumulated. Our advice, as stated above, is that you should get rid of everything you don’t need anymore. Secondly, that you use the storage products that best suit your needs

Lastly, be creative and use space in your house that you are not currently using. For example, use the space under the stairs. Areas like these can be very valuable when it comes to home storage space.

Another solution to gain space for home storage is to use shelving that goes up to the ceiling. This makes use of valuable space that is typically not being used. You may also want to invest in some functional furniture such as bunk beds. They also take advantage of vertical space that is usually neglected.
