Downsizing simplifies your life in many ways, but the actual process of preparing to move to a smaller space can involve a great deal of work. From choosing what to toss and what to pack to organizing the move itself, downsizing can feel anything but simple.
If you are planning a move that will reduce your storage space, follow these three tips to make the most of less square footage!
Utilize Wall Space
Hooks and shelving can create storage is space in tight, tiny areas. Think about your bathroom: nothing is worse than a small space overrun with toiletries on the countertops or towels on the floor. Add shelving above your toilet to create more space and keep the area clutter-free. Hooks can also be used to add extra storage space in your bathroom, entryway, garage, closets, pantry, laundry room or mudroom.
Look for furniture that does double-duty by providing extra storage space. Many ottomans conceal storage bins, giving you extra room to store throw pillows, blankets or children’s toys. Storage beds may be another great option if you are downsizing. These beds feature drawers underneath the frame and are the perfect place to store things like bulky blankets, seasonal clothes or extra sets of sheets.
