Is your home starting to feel overwhelmingly cluttered? Do you have a lot of belongs that you don’t want to toss out, but also don’t have room to keep stored in your home? If so, you’re likely one of the 10% of American households that use outdoor storage units, adding to the ever-increasing billion dollar revenue the storage industry brings in each and ever year.
Garages aren’t only used for storing vehicles anymore and present garages are designed with extra storage space in mind. Nowadays we have too many belongings and require more storage at times. Both an attached and a detached garage will offer the space you need. In addition, an attic or upper loft space could be built to offer more manageable storage space. Shelving and cubbies are ideal for organizing in a multi-purpose space and organization systems have advanced over the years.
Attics have long been used for storage and sometimes transformed into actual living space; it all depends on the roof pitch as to your limits with what your attic could become. Unfortunately, attics can also become a hazardous storage area due to lack of organizational techniques. If your ceilings are sloped you might be slightly more limited, but Lakeside Exteriors says even just 3-5 feet of storage height is plenty when you utilize the space correctly.
In past times, crawl spaces were never really used and rather left unfinished in the majority of homes. Over time, some have considered using it for storage because they’ve run out of options and newer homeowners are starting to actually consider the crawl space and intend to use it for storage. Material isn’t a big issue, but it will definitely need to be waterproof. You could do more than use it for storage, it’s just a matter of what you come up with; suitcase storage, wine cellar, seasonal storage, etc.
