One problem that just about every homeowner faces is that of a lack of storage space. There’s plenty of hidden storage spaces in your home that you may be overlooking. Sometimes you have to get creative with the space that you do have. Here, we’ll give you some hints and idea as to where you can store things without moving anything in your home. 


Look Up


It’s very easy to extend the shelving in your home upward. If you look up, and there’s a lot of empty space, there’s a lot of possibilities for storage. You can add shelving directly to the wall or replace smaller shelving units with taller ones. Keep a step stool handy in order to reach any items that you may need access to.  


The Stairs Go Further Than Up


If you have large spaces under staircases that you aren’t using, you’re missing out on major possibilities for storage. There are ways that you can make an under-the-stairs closet space. You can install shelving and fit a door over the area, completely transforming it. If a door won’t work for you, try a room screen or even a curtain. The best part is that anything you store in the space will be concealed and easily accessed. 


Redesign Your Closet


Closets tend to become overfilled quickly. If you peer inside of the closet and see a bunch of wasted space, there's some opportunity for reorganization there. You can add shelving to the back of the closet for additional storage. You can also move rods and other shelving around in order to add more practical space to put things.


Look Under The Cabinets


There’s plenty of storage space under your cabinets. You should get stackable storage bins for under the bathroom sink, for example. It’s a great place to keep extra toothpaste, cleaning supplies, and soap. In the kitchen, be sure that every cabinet has a purpose. Use a spice rack to keep herbs and spices in order. You can use something as simple as a towel bar and install it on a cabinet door to organize pot lids.


Use Your Doors


There’s plenty of clever and inexpensive things that can be used to organize your things using closet and room doors. Everything from hanging baskets to shoe racks and bags can be easily installed just by hanging a unit over the door.          


Find The Nooks


Just about everyone has a space in between their fridge and a wall. Depending upon how much space you actually have, you can do some incredible things with this space. Consider every option from a broom closet to a mini pantry that rolls out. 


The most important part of organization and storage is that you find what you need easily. Use the above tips to create your own unique storage spaces within your home.
