Transform Your Kitchen Space

Hello, my name is Katy and this blog is dedicated to how you can improve the interior of your home. Last year, I renovated my kitchen and it completely changed my life. Although I am really happy with the results, I didn't expect it to be so challenging. I kind of jumped in at the deep end, ripped my old kitchen out and then realised I had no idea how to install a new one or even what design I would like to choose. Thankfully, my friend who is a bit of an expert at these things guided me through the entire process and I learnt a lot of useful things. Since then, I have started to rennovate the rest of my home and garden.

Domestic Storage Ideas For Homeowners

All over Australia, homeowners complain of being short on storage space. Although we live in a huge country, in urban centres there is frequently a pressing need to find more storage and many people turn to self-storage centres as a solution. These can be costly in the long-term and it is therefore advisable to seek additional storage from the space you already have. Let's take a look at some of the best ideas modern homeowners are using.

Garage Cabinets

These are great units which augment the storage capacity to be found in nearly all types of garage. Perfect for keeping tools and gardening equipment in, they are best wall mounted. The advantage of this is that the floor space in your garage is kept clear, meaning you are still able to park your car or store something else bulky in your garage without the cabinet getting in the way. Makers like Gladiator and Suncast produce them and you can find lockable ones on the market, too.

Stackable Storage Cubes

These highly versatile products are great for maximising storage and for keeping smaller items fully organised. Not only do they mean you can find the things you are after when you need them, but they look good, too. Hiding clutter away, a stackable storage cube system can be arranged vertically or horizontally – any way that suits your home. If you want to gain as much storage as possible, then stack them on top of one another all the way to the ceiling.

Industrial Sheds

Many homeowners overlook industrial sheds as something that can provide additional storage in a domestic situation because they tend to be used by warehousing operations and farmers. However, smaller industrial sheds can fit into most back yards with ease and provide excellent protection from the sun and rain. Complying with building codes standards and being able to withstand high wind speeds, highly versatile storage sheds are much more robust than wooden garden sheds. Furthermore, you can fit mezzanine floors within them which will double their capacity at a stroke.

Bedroom Storage

Many of us just sleep in our bedrooms and don't really have much use for them during the day. Of course, your bedroom may already have a wardrobe and chest of drawers already, but you shouldn't overlook the additional storage capacity that bedrooms afford. One of the things that causes most clutter in bedroom is shoes. Try using an extendable shoe rack which will mean you can fit many more pairs in a single location. Also, opt for vertical storage units that you can hand from a rail. These help you to optimise the space in your wardrobe, much of which can be left unoccupied if you only use coat hangers. Lastly, vacuum seal out of season clothes in a bag which you can then store easily under your mattress, helping to free up room for other items.
