Finding room in your house for storing your belongings can often be difficult and time consuming, which is why when it comes to storage solutions, the more creative and innovative it is, the better.
Plunkett Homes Customer Service Manager Bonnie Muccilli said everybody could profit by making smart decisions by considering storage that would benefit their everyday activities.
“To me, storage is so important in new homes because you have the chance to make it suit you and your lifestyle,” she said. “But what it comes down to is how you actually fit these areas out with storage.
“There are so many products now available that you can have your cupboards designed to cater to special shelving options or inserts.”
For kitchen pantries, Ms Muccilli said people did not have to put up with that big box of cereal not fitting on their shelf anymore.
“There are some great products out there which have a number of smart options to customise your cupboard space,” she said.
“Here at Plunkett Homes, we give you options on shelf heights you get to choose yourself.”
With bedroom wardrobes, consider utilising the entire space from floor-to-ceiling; opting for shelves for bags and shoes or drawers for jewellery or ties is the best trick in the book.
As for linen cupboards, Ms Muccilli said people needed to think about where they store vacuums or mops, as they will need extra height. “Generally, a combo shelf section plus a space for these sorts of household items is popular,” she said.
If you are feeling overwhelmed about all the possible storage solutions on offer, don’t forget you have a garage to consider too.
Being an area most people tend to forget about, the garage often ends up crammed with too much stuff, leaving a tight fit with the cars included.
“Generally, most keep the garage at the standard width, but once you have your cars in there, it can be a tight fit so factoring into building what you need in the garage is smart,” Ms Muccilli said.
Fortunately, there is also a huge range of garage specific storage and organisation add-ons available that can help take the pressure off the garage and home space.
