How To Store The Most Things In A Small Place

A safe and secure storage place can be expensive, yet that is the type of storage you need if you want to store your valuables. Reduce some of the storage expenses by storing the maximum number of items in the available space. The following tips will show you how to accomplish this.

Hang What Can Be Hanged

You don't have to put everything on the floor; that will restrict your storage space severely. The ceiling is one of the most ignored surfaces in a typical storage place; make use of your to maximize your storage place. Make use of these surfaces; for example, by hanging what can be hanged on the ceiling or walls. For example, you can hang clothes, cooking pans, bags and many other items.

Make Use of Racks

You can also build storage racks or shelves to store things that cannot be hanged on the walls or from the ceiling. Things like utensils, shoes, and books can easily go on racks or shelves, which allow you to maximize the use of your vertical space in your unit. They are particularly effective when lined against the walls all around the storage unit and reaching from the ceiling to the floor.

Store Some Items inside Others

If you have hollow items, especially bigger ones, you should use them to hold some of your smaller items. For example, if you have a table with drawers, you can pack smaller items in the drawers so that they don't occupy unnecessary space. You can do a similar thing with cooking pots, water tanks, and cupboards, among others.

Stack Storage Boxes

Stacking boxes is a time-honored method for storing items; it also allows you to maximize the use of your vertical space. Place the heavier and sturdier boxes on the bottom and put the lighter and smaller ones on top. Make sure the boxes you are stacking aren't fragile and won't be damaged by the weight of other items above them.

Dismantle Big Items

Lastly, you can also maximize your storage space by dismantling bigger items first before storage. This is especially efficient with oddly-shaped items, such as furniture, that waste space when stored as a unit. Most beds, for example, can easily be dismantled so that their different pieces can be stored separately.

Once you have identified a storage facility, talk to the manager to help you understand the security measures in place. Don't forget to store the most accessed items at the front of the storage unit so that you don't have to rummage through everything to retrieve something. For more information or advice, contact a storage facility.
