Make the Most of Your Home Storage with Makeovers in Small Spaces

Sponsored Content provided by Fred Kumpel - Owner, Strickland's Home

Greater Wilmington Business JournalIf you’re looking to maximize storage, organizing your reach-in closets and walk-in closets is a great place to start, but don’t forget the rest of your home. Often, we neglect to organize small spaces like hall closets, alcoves, nooks, niches, and the space under the stairs. But these spaces are full of untapped potential. Here are a few ways to make the most of your small storage spaces: 

1. Streamline your hall closet with shelving, baskets, and hooks. 
While narrow hallway closets or corner efficiency closets are often reduced to throwaway space, they’re ideal for storing everyday essentials. Transform your hall closet into a stylish linen closet with adjustable shelving, baskets, and even bathroom kits for house guests. Or, create a cleaning closet with hooks for brooms and mops and heavy-duty shelves for cleaners and supplies.

If the space under your stairs is open and unused, opt for a built-in drop-zone with cubbies and hooks for bags and backpacks, a bench, and underfoot shoe storage. Even a small set of stairs can provide space for a few cubbies. You’ll be amazed at what a touch of organization can do for this high-traffic area in your home. 

3. Turn niches and nooks into mini-displays for family heirlooms, photos, and more. 
Transform built-in niches and nooks (which are often under-utilized) into task-focused storage zones, such as a mini-mail station or a depository for keys, cell phone and wallets at the front door. 

4. Upgrade your alcove with built-in shelving and a reading nook or desk. 
Alcoves provide extra space, but often in the unlikeliest shapes and sizes. Use yours for a hideaway office space or reading nook with built-in shelving, overhead lighting, and even a desk space or bench.
