Many families live in small apartments because that is what they can afford even when they are big in numbers and have many possessions. Sometimes, those families do not have attics or garages so they cannot store things they do not need but do not want to throw away. This is the time when such families have to resort to out of the box thinking to find creative storage ideas so that they could keep their houses tidy and organized. You will find here some creative out of the box storage ideas.
1- Use an ottoman instead of a coffee table for your living room. You could put away books, magazines and remote controls inside them and they will still serve the purpose of a coffee table.
2- Instead of throwing away fruit and vegetable crates, you could get them and make great shelves out of them. You could even attach shelves and hangers to them or use them as a nightstand. Moreover, if you have many, you can arrange them according to your taste and create your own bookcase then paint them and decorate them however you like.
3- Linens, blankets and pillows are too big for your wardrobe? Then think out of the box and reduce their size. Vacuum sealing bags help you reduce the size of linens and clothes so that you could put them away without worrying about space. These bags will also protect them from dust and insects and thus you could store them under the bed or other dark spaces that insects seem to like.
4- When it comes to storage, people will be ever thankful for the blessing of plastic containers. You can put away and organize almost everything inside them. You will need them for your cosmetics, your kids’ toys and your husband’s papers.
All you need for finding creative storage ideas is some out of the box thinking. With that, you can find even a hundred more ideas.
