As we stated before, storage can often be a big part of the moving process. At other times, your specific storage need may not directly be involved in a move. You may just be looking for ways to save space more effectively, while being more organized. If that’s your situation, SMARTBOX has put together some key information on how to maximize your household space. Read below to find out what they are.

Consolidate and Combine- One of the main objectives for people storing things is to become more organized while saving space at the same time. The good news is you can accomplish this by combining things into one place instead of having them in multiple locations. You can do this several different ways. Start by using every inch of extra space you have available to you. Slide things neatly under you bed or in your closet. If you live in a multiple story residence, use any extra space you may have underneath the stairs. There are also several benches and stools that you can buy that offer storage compartments underneath the sitting area. For those with children, another great idea would be to buy or build a toy chest to store all of your child’s toys to help save space.

Rent a Portable Storage Unit- Yes, renting a storage unit in order to save space can go hand in hand; however, with several storage unit options available, it may be difficult to figure out which option to choose. Many times all you have to do is call the storage provider, let them know when you need to rent out a unit, then pack up everything yourself. A great option to consider would be a portable storage unit. They charge you for the amount of space you use and provide you with the option of storing everything at your location or at one of their storage facilities. They’re cost-effective and provide you with an efficient way to do things yourself at your own pace. From getting things out of your way to keeping everything safe and secure at all times, renting a portable storage unit is a great way to maximize space while keeping your items protected.

Turn Household Objects into Multipurpose Tools- From storage towers to spice racks, there are several different ways to add space throughout your home with household objects you may not use frequently. By turning these items into multipurpose tools, you’ll be able to get more use out of them while saving space that could ultimately add to the décor of your residence.
