Cleaning Out and Organizing Your Basement

Spring is here and is the perfect opportunity to clean up some of the clutter that has accumulated over the past few months. One area of the house that probably hasn’t had some decluttering and organization in a few years is your basement. Elite Storage in Lafayette, CO can help you conquer the clutter that has overcome your basement. With the extra space you need from one of our storage units and the tips we have gathered below, you will have the clean and organized basement you have always dreamed of.


One Area at a Time

When you start to declutter your basement you may feel overwhelmed by the amount of items that has accumulated over the years. The best way to start the decluttering and organizing process is by picking one area at a time. Designate a small space to work through and sort each day or weekend. This way you don’t feel overwhelmed and you can take your time deciding what you should keep, store, or donate.



If you use your basement as a storage space for a variety of household items you will want to install some shelving. Shelving can open up floor space while giving your organized storage. Keep your items in clear plastic bins so you can easily see what is stored where. Don’t forget to label your bins as well to make your life just that much easier. Having your items stored on shelving rather than the floor can protect them from potential natural disasters that may occur in your basement such as flooding.


Imagine the Potential

After you have cleaned out your basement and organized the items you are wanting to keep close on hand you can then imagine the potential your basement has for additional playrooms or work spaces. You can designate specific areas of your basement for each need. When creating a playroom for your children make sure it is in an area that is away from any hot water heaters or piping that could harm them. Keep it organized with peg boards, shelving, and bins for all of your crafts or the children’s toys. Let your creativity flourish with this new space you have in your home.
