Here Comes the Sun: Season-Switching Storage Solutions

As sunny days and eased restrictions on gathering with friends and family to engage in outdoor activities approach, changing seasons provide an ideal opportunity to declutter and organize your spare room, garage, or storage shed. More Space Place Sarasota has expert ready to help you keep your spaces organized!

Despite having garages, basements, and attics in their homes, 68 percent of all self-storage customers rent storage units for their belongings. Using home, garage and storage shed organization items such as labeled storage racks and shelves with slide-in bins, color-coded by season will help eliminate clutter and reduce your monthly budget by at least $360 per year, allowing you to spend that money on gasoline, state and national park memberships and fishing, hunting and boating licenses instead.

Consulting with an organization expert at More Space Place Sarasota allows you to customize your storage needs. Your individualized organization plan might include loft platforms and hooks to hang bicycles, kayaks, canoes, and camping equipment in the unused space near the ceiling of your garage instead of using the entire garage as a storage unit.

If your home suffers from CHAOS (can’t have anyone over syndrome) or you always find yourself with at least one room devoted to storing seasonal items, adding a loft with pull-down stairs to your garage or storage shed could double or triple your available storage space.

In addition to keeping the available floor space clear for the family car, lawn care equipment, and items too heavy or bulky to raise into the loft, pull-down stairs prevent passers-by from seeing what you have stored in your garage or storage shed. This discourages thieves and prevents your homeowner’s insurance rates from rising whenever theft forces you to make a claim.

Furthermore, keeping the sides of the garage or shed clear creates safe aisles, preventing slip and fall accidents and reducing combustibility, a vital consideration in areas prone to fire. The professional organizing consultants at Closets and Storage Concepts will help you design a pegboard system to keep your hand and power tools out of those aisles and off the floor.

Floor-to-ceiling wall storage further increases the efficient use of available space.Add color-coded slide-out bins to shelving units and larger toys and craft items will cease making the room look like a tornado just passed through your home. Moreover, by labeling the bins with photos of the items inside, even toddlers can return their toys to the correct bin when finished playing.
