At some point in someone’s life, they look around and think “Wow, how did I end up accumulating so many things?” While it might seem like the simple solution to this issue would be to take some of it to the junk or to donate it to a local charity, we are Americans — and as Americans, it is natural for us to just hold on to stuff by finding a place to store it. Because of this, storage space becomes a huge asset to have in your home. Luckily, if you just purchased a townhome for sale in Fort Collins from us at the Townhomes on Vine, storage space is ample.


In today’s blog, we will be discussing a few of our favorite tips and tricks for optimizing your storage spaces.


Metal Shelving In The Garage

If you love storage spaces as much as we do, you probably already have some metal storage racks lining every wall of your garage. Why are storage racks such a great addition to your garage? Well, if you think of the amount of floor space that you have in your garage, you can essentially triple the amount of storage space by simply adding two shelves.


When you are loading up your storage racks, it is important to consider the weight of the items that you are looking to store, and where they are placed on the shelving unit. If an item is super light, consider putting it on one of the top shelves so that it has the smallest impact on the support of the shelving system. If the item is heavy, you still have floor space.


If you do not currently have garage shelving but have been coerced to consider purchasing some by our compelling argument, we strongly suggest that you stop by The Home Depot to check out their selection of garage storage shelving. And to make it even sweeter, they are right down the street from out townhomes for sale in Fort Collins.


Hall Trees

If you are looking for an indoor storage solution, consider purchasing a hall tree. Now, we aren’t saying that you should get a real tree (or fake, for that matter) to place in your hallway, we are instead talking about one of those nifty furniture innovations that combine a bench and a coat hook system.


Hall trees are exceptionally great storage solutions for three reasons, the first being that they provide an awesome shoe storage solution that you can also sit on to put on and take off your shoes. Second, they provide a place for you to hang coats, dog leashes, and passive-aggressive notes that tell your spouse or roommate to take the trash out. Last, but certainly not least, is their ability to free up closet space for all of the other junk that you have recently bought!
