6 Clever Storage Solutions to Maximize Space in Every Room

When it comes to making the most out of every square inch of your home, clever storage solutions are the secret sauce. It might be tempting to shove things in the closet or let the kitchen table pile up, but this will just make your house feel like it’s in disarray. With these savvy storage tips, you can say goodbye to cramped rooms and hello to a well-organized home that maximizes space without sacrificing comfort.

Hanging Pot Rack

The kitchen is often the heart of the home, but it can quickly become cluttered. 

Open up your kitchen space by installing a hanging pot rack. Not only does it free up cabinet and counter space, but it can be a bold and functional focal point of the room. If you don’t want to commit to a rack that hangs from the ceiling, several smaller options that hang behind the stove are also available.

Multi-Functional Furniture

There’s no denying that couches, chairs, cabinets, and tables can take up a lot of living room space. But before you decide to sit on the floor just to feel less cluttered, try looking into multi-functional furniture. 

Finding stylish pieces that can perform double duty is the name of the game. Consider an ottoman that opens up to reveal hidden storage for blankets or a coffee table with built-in drawers for stashing away remote controls and other odds and ends. There are even couches with shelving built into the side for extra storage, or consoles in the middle that are deeper than they look. 

Vertical Storage Solutions

When floor space is at a premium, look up! Tall bookshelves, floor-to-ceiling cabinets, and wall-mounted racks can turn those blank walls into valuable storage real estate while also adding visual appeal. Think about incorporating these pieces into upstairs hallways, bedrooms, or in the bonus loft spaces that some Starlight Homes floor plans include. 

Under-Bed Storage

Keeping your bedroom clutter-free will go a long way toward making you feel more relaxed. 
Invest in beds with built-in drawers or utilize storage bins beneath the bed for linens and off-season clothing. You can also use this space to store bulky items like suitcases and conceal them with a bed skirt to turn an eyesore into a stylish touch. If your bedframe is too low to the ground, our homes are outfitted with large closets that offer plenty of extra storage so you can maintain a serene living space. 

Overhead Garage Storage

Your garage is not just for parking cars. Take advantage of overhead garage storage racks to keep things like seasonal items, sports equipment, and even bikes neatly tucked away. With all the extra space you’ll create, your garage might just become your go-to hangout spot. 

If you still have a surplus of rarely-used items in your garage, you can look even higher for a storage solution. Many of our floor plans include attics, so you can keep boxes out of sight and out of the way. 

Cabinet and Drawer Organizers 

The bathroom is an area where it’s harder to open up some extra space, but you can still use a few tricks to tidy it up and make it feel roomy. 

Optimize your space by putting organizers in your drawers. This will clear off counter space and allow you to neatly store items like toiletries and makeup. Adding tiered organizers to your cabinets under the sink will also create more space for medicine, towels, and other personal items. 

No matter the size of your space, these clever storage solutions will help you make the most of every room. Want to see the spacious floor plans we have in your area? Get in contact with one of our Home Guides and schedule an appointment today
