You moved into your dream home and after a few months or years, one day you wake up and realize, Honey, the house has shrunk! Some residents may have increased their family size with a new child who comes with all their new belongings or your child’s new toys and hobbies have accumulated and filled up the closet and now the closet doors cannot close.
There is also you or your significant other who has also gathered new items and your house feels like a GPS system is needed to find anything! But, don’t despair. Here are several ideas on how to create more space.
Of course, the easiest way is to clean and throw away old items or give away useable items to your thrift store or Church. Then peruse the various chain stores in your area and visit the area dedicated to storage space items. There are numerous ideas and devices that can help create more space. There are plastic storage covers that deflate with a vacuum cleaner and instead of having a four foot high clothing storage bag, these bags reduces the size to almost as flat as a thin board and now can slide these clothes under a bed or in a closet.
There are also numerous types of racks or plastic-hanging cases that have numerous pockets that hang over a door where could one could fit many pairs of shoes or accessories in those poaches. These space saving devices allow numerous items to fit in their plastic pouches and are placed on one side so it can be hidden behind a closet door and still allows the door to close.
Other ideas can include purchasing bunk beds to save space or buying a convertible table that triples as a television, computer station, and storage unit all in one. Some property owners have storage rooms to rent which are less expensive than renting at a private storage facility or sometimes, garages are available to rent as well. If all else falls, you always have the option to move to a bigger place and most property owners usually allow long-term residents first choice when a bigger floor plan opens up. One only needs to wait and ask.
