Basements are known to be the storage unit of the home. If you are thinking about making your basement into a more usable space then you will need the help of a temperature controlled storage unit at Elite Storage in Lafayette. Placing the items you don’t need to use every day in a storage unit will allow you to get more use out of the space you have in your home. Below we have gathered some steps to help you in creating the basement space you have always wanted.


Start by Sorting

Before you can have your basement transformed into the space you have always wanted, you will need to empty out its contents and sort through all of the items you have been storing. Creating piles of items that you will keep, toss, donate, or store. Be picky when it comes to the things you are thinking about keeping. For your sentimental items you just can’t seem to part with but don’t have the space for, you can trust Elite Storage’s temperature controlled units in Lafayette to keep them out of harm’s way.

Create Workable Zones

Before you embark on putting everything back into your basement in an organized manner, you will need to create zones. Each zone should have a function and/or have similar items being stored together. For example, if you are using your basement primarily for storage you will want to keep all of your camping gear in one area, tools in another, and kitchen accessories in an area that is easy to reach.

Contain your Items

To achieve ultimate organization you will want to invest in containers for the majority of your items. Not only will these containers keep everything together, it will also protect them from unexpected spills, dust, and dirt. Plastic bins with sealable lids are the best for storing the majority of your items. Remember to label and place your bins in an organized fashion. Buying and installing shelving is a great way to keep your bins organized and off of the floor.
