5 Storage Ideas Using Spaces You Never Realised Existed in Your House

Every house has pockets which you never realised existed, but could be used to organise and store many things. This blog post talks of such pockets and how they could be used.

1) The Area under the steps: This area, often ignored, can be used for utility drawers, a small washroom, a showcase, or a small utility room for the washing machine/ ironing table. Much depends on the space available though.

2) Wardrobe doors: These are usually unused, but hooks in the wardrobe doors could help you organise ties, belts, shoes and even clothes.

3) Bathroom Storage: Even if you have a small bathroom, some storage area can be squeezed out to store cleaning material, towels, and other utility items.

  • The area under the sink is perfect for storing cleaning products and detergents.

4) Capitalizing on ceiling height using hydraulic garment lifts: We are most often limited by height, and don’t prefer ceiling high cupboards for obvious reasons. However, these hydraulic hangers really help in using that space for hanging suits and other important clothes which you want to keep away from the clutter. You can find these hangers at Hettich.
