4 Tips to Maximize Storage Shelves

Storage space is always in demand, whether you’re living in a cramped apartment or a large single family home. While creating more closets may not be feasible, maximizing your existing areas by taking advantage of storage shelves is a great alternative. Here are a few tips for taking full advantage of shelving units from Get Organized, Rochester, NY’s leading source for storage ideas and room organization. 

4 Tips Guaranteed to Maximize Space on Storage Shelves

Storage Shelves

1. Take Advantage of Every Surface

When organizing a closet or cupboard, every surface, wall, and door can participate in the storage game. Don’t be afraid to use outside surfaces as well. Pegboard, for example, can be installed on the sides of your shelving unit to hang additional items and allow quick access to your favorite pieces. 

2. Find Stackable Bins & Baskets

To keep your storage spaces tidy, find a variety of stackable bins, baskets, and even jars so every item has its place. Not only will your storage shelves stay clean and easy to navigate, but by selecting eye-catching wicker baskets or a matching set of patterned boxes, your closet will be both functional and appealing to explore. 

3. Assess & Invest in Add-Ons

Consider your storage shelves a blank canvas. Pull everything out and divide it into categories. Once you have a full assessment of every piece, find the perfect add-ons for your unique needs. If you have lots of jewelry for example, installing small hooks can prevent tangling. If you’re arranging a pantry, hanging baskets or small magnetic containers could keep spices, cans, and cooking tools in place.

4. Organize By Priority

After you have everything tucked away in baskets, bins, and hanging on hooks, the last thing you want to do is spend precious time sorting through each one to find the right thing. To cut down on rummaging time, label bins and set them on shelves based on priority and frequency of use. If you’re organizing a closet and its winter, put your bins of hats, scarves, and mittens up front and leave tank tops and swimsuits tucked away on the top shelf. 

If organizing your home becomes overwhelming, turn to the experts. With over 30 years of experience, Get Organized will help you eliminate clutter and reduce the stress caused by messy spaces.
