6 Sneaky Ways to Add Storage to Your Home


Maintaining a home definitely comes with many challenges. A challenge many households struggle with is staying neat and tidy because of lack of storage. However, adding storage doesn’t have to mean adding more square footage. Check out these tips to make the most out of your current space.

Odd-Shaped Closets.

Is that odd closet underneath your stairs currently an unorganized mess? Chances are you’re wasting valuable storage space. We understand these spaces can be intimidating and appear useless. By installing shelves and office organizers, you can completely transform your chaotic closet into gobs of storage space. The best part is you can shut the closet door and no one will even know its there.

Behind Closed Doors.

One of the easiest and least time-consuming ways to install additional storage is behind closet doors. Plus, there are so many options. Use a combination of hooks and bars to organize jewelry and accessories. Add a shoe rack to create more space in the bottom of your closet. Get creative and install containers to store smaller items in.

Extra Wall Space.



Embrace that random sliver of wall and turn it into a perfectly organized storage space. Adding shallow bins, organizers, or a bulletin board provide extra storage without taking up any floor space. This is also a great way to add your own personal touch to your walls. Look around your house for any small corners or narrow pathways that could use a stylish solution and double as additional storage.

Utilize Every Cabinet Size.

No matter what shape or size your cabinet may be, don’t allow any storage to go to waste. Equip your cabinets so you can utilize every inch of storage they offer. For tricky corner cabinets, we recommend multiple-layer lazy Susans. Deep cabinets work best with pull-out shelves or multiple baskets. For tall shelves, try stacking organizers.

Empty Kitchen Wall.



Whether your kitchen is big or small, there is most likely an empty wall calling your name. Make the most of that empty wall space by turning into the ultimate organizer. A great, and visually-appealing, way to add storage to your kitchen is by adding a pegboard. Hang all your kitchen supplies on your wall, allowing for easy access and additional decor

Below Base Cabinets.

Adding shallow drawers below your kitchen or bathroom cabinets is a smart and sneaky way to create more storage space in your home. Most people wouldn’t think to use those extra few inches, but this is the perfect area to store cookie sheets, towels, or items you don’t often find yourself reaching for. Make sure each drawer has a touch-latch so you can open them with just a tap of the toe.
