dining-room-and-wall-storage-under-the-stairsHaving enough storage is a big issue for most homeowners. But with square footage at a premium, where can you put all of your stuff? There are many creative storage solutions that you can integrate into your next home remodeling project.

Open Shelving

Shelving can be a lot more than just bookshelves. Tuck small shelves into nooks, over sinks and toilets, and even over the windows. This works well in a small kitchen that uses glass shelves for pretty items that capture the light. Install shelving around windows and fireplaces for additional storage. Another option is creating open shelving under the stairs. This gives you access to the huge amount of storage in the narrowest part of the house.

Think Vertical

There are many spots in your home that offer themselves up as storage space, but you might have to think outside the box to find them. A perfect example of this is the vertical space on the inside of the doors. Take advantage of the back of a kitchen pantry door with a creative spice rack, cubbies, or wire baskets. This solution also works well on the inside of linen closet doors in the bathroom. If you’re on a budget, use an over-the-door shoe organizer for cleaning products or other oddly shaped items.

Pull-Out Pantries

Pull-out pantries let you make use of space you didn’t even know you had. Create a narrow, slide-out pantry next to your refrigerator, or make one of your cupboards a pull-out pantry for canned goods. Almost every kitchen has some unused space you can creatively take advantage of.
