The Best Storage Solutions for the Home

Having an organised home is something most of us strive for, but we often find it a little hard to achieve. It is no secret that a tidy home can improve our wellbeing, boost our mood and make cleaning easier. But, between work and balancing our busy schedules, we may not always get time to organise our home just how we like.

Luckily, there are many solutions to enhance storage within your home, and here we discuss some of the best.

Airtight containers
These are a great addition to your kitchen. Not only do they make the insides of your cupboards look pleasing, they can also increase the lifespan of some food types. You can use airtight containers to store staple cupboard items such as rice and pasta, as well as baking ingredients like sugar and flour. Once the container is closed properly, no air can get in or out, which preserves what’s inside and increases how long it lasts before going stale. Airtight containers make everything look organised, so it is always easy to find what you’re looking for. You can get clear or opaque containers depending on your preference and, for an extra touch, you could even add labels to up the organisation to the next level.

Plastic storage containers
Plastic storage containers come in a huge range of shapes, colours and sizes and can be used all over the home for many different purposes from keeping all the kids’ toys in one place to storing extra blankets and pillows for when guests come over. The great thing about plastic storage containers is that they are stackable, so you can store items in a compact way, and some can be nested when empty for neat storage when not in use.

Wall hooks
Wall hooks are a perfect way of making use of an empty wall. If you have a few feet of wall space, even if it’s behind a door, you can easily hang a few hooks to get your bags off the floor and your coats off chairs. They are a simple and inexpensive way to add minimalist storage. Wall hooks also add practicality to your lives if you are constantly on the go. By installing them near your door and hanging your coat, hat, bag or umbrella on them, you make it easy to grab these items as you head out of the door every day without frantically searching the house for them at the last minute.

Sideboard
Greatly increasing in popularity over the past year or so, sideboards make a grand addition to your home. These low-maintenance furniture pieces offer tons of storage – and if you get one with doors and drawers, you can simply hide what’s stored inside!

Ottoman
Ottomans can hit two birds with one stone, as they can be used for extra storage and extra seating. You could even use your ottoman as a temporary coffee table to rest your cup of tea or slice of cake on while watching TV. Storage ottomans usually feature lift-up tops to reveal interior storage space. And since they are placed in the living room, this makes them great for daily household items like toys, blankets and books. They come in many shapes, upholstery options and styles.
