Learn the art of sorting; and throwing away the unnecessary
We know that you are here mostly to know how to store things the right way; and we will be sharing our tips for that. But before you get to storing, or to do so successfully, it’s vital that you know how to sort through your things and learn to throw away the clutter and the unnecessary. This way, you will not waste time and effort storing those things that you could have easily thrown away or donated a long time ago. It’s also important that you do these sorting and clearing at least twice a year; especially if you happen to have a small house or small storage area for your home.
Hiring a storage unit for your back yard
Finding the correct place to store things can help you a lot more than you think, and especially to store them successfully. We suggest an out of the way room, like a room at the back of your home, the basement, or even an unused garage or vehicle port. If none of these is available or an option to you, then perhaps you need to think of the space outside your home. A large (and unused) garden shed with a few changes can turn out to be a great spot for storage. If not, consider hiring or buying a used shipping container that is tall enough to install pallet racking Dandenong or other storage units; and easily make your own outdoor storage unit.
Thinking out of the box; literally!
When it comes to storing things, one of the most popular forms to do so, is through boxes. However, if you think it through, it is not the most convenient form of storage. Over head storage units, ceiling racks, used pallet racking, under the bed (flat) storage units, wall shelves and even magnetic strips are all innovative ways of storing your things; both short term and long term. One tip to remember is to try to get see-through containers for your long term storage things. If not, get to work labeling them. This reduces the time you will spend looking through container after container when you need something from this pile. Go right here to find out more details.
The art factor
Try to be artful and keep “presentation” in mind when selecting storage solutions; especially the closed kind. You can store things even in plain sight if you make sure it is “pretty enough”, and most importantly, uniform in size and color. Try to be artistic is the placement of your plain sight storage as well. For example, if you are someone who spends all your free time doing outdoor sports, and have accumulated quite a few sports equipment, then have a corner of your home “dedicated” to a sports theme. This way, you can turn your “storage” into “room décor”.
