Is your home looking a little worse for wear in the organization department? You may be wondering just how you are going to find even more storage in your home when all of the obvious choices aren’t available. With the help of a storage unit at Elite Storage in Lafayette, CO you could store those items you just don’t need every day. We have also come up with additional storage options you may not have thought of.

Adding Shelving above Doors

Try a floating shelf above your door trim above any door in your home, to put books, decorative storage boxes, or anything else you need to. You can buy a ready-made shelf from your local hardware store or create your own. This space is not often thought of or utilized. It is a great way to find a place for those little items you just can’t seem to find the space for.

Behind your Couch

A sofa moved at least 18” from the wall allows for a console table to be placed behind it with storage both atop and underneath the table. Or, you can skip the table and stack boxes behind your sofa that can store clothes, office supplies, paperwork, books, etc. Having your couch moved at least a foot away from the wall gives your living room the feeling of comfort it has been lacking.

Under your Bed

While you might have already thought of this storage solutions you may not be using it to its full potential. Try hiding slim, plastic storage boxes that can be used to store scarves, hats, bags, and anything else that you may need to store away for a while. You can also use the space under your bed to hide your extra blankets and other linens.

The Linen Closet

Just because it is called the linen closet doesn’t mean you can’t utilize this space for other items. Go through your linens and keep only what you use the most. Place everything else in a storage unit at Elite Storage in Lafayette, CO for safe keeping. Keep it organized with totes and bins to contain the clutter.
