Turn Your Basement into the Highlight of Your Home

Time to organize the chaos!

If it’s time to finally organize your basement space, there are some tips to follow to make sure the process is not only a smooth one, but extremely rewarding. Making the most of your basement may take some organizational skills, but once it’s completed, you’ll love the results. If you are looking for more space in your home for storage options and entertaining as the cooler months are approaching, Garage Décor and More can help.

Turning your basement into a more usable space is easier once you get organized. As with any project, you want to make sure the items in your basement are worth keeping. If you have containers filled of broken, used toys and your children are high school graduates, it may be time to reassess what you’re storing in your basement. The basement storage space often becomes a “catch all” in many of our client’s homes, so going through what you want to keep and what you can donate, get rid of or sell is a vital step in the process of organizing the basement.

Another way to turn your basement space into a more usable one is to use shelving instead of placing everything into containers. When using containers and stacking them, it’s more difficult to see what you’re storing. It’s also easier to access the items when they are placed nicely on shelves. Garage Décor and More has many, many options available for shelving as well as custom cabinets that can suit any basement space. Tired of looking for that item buried in a storage bin? Then it’s time to call us for a free consultation and learn about the basement shelving we have to offer.

After deciding what you want to keep, you can begin to think of the storage in your basement as “zones”. Assign a place for winter clothes, boardgames, and sports gear. Looking at turning that once cluttered storage area into a downstairs living room? Figure out where you want everything stored and then give us a call to determine the best storage options available for your specific space. When items in the basement are placed into “categories”, it not only helps the homeowner to organize but also makes finding items so much easier.

Once your basement space is organized, it will be so much easier to keep things in their designated spots and also plan for the future. Don’t use every inch of your new organizational plan and shelving because planning for the future will also mean you won’t have to reorganize in the upcoming year. Adding new shelves? Leave some open spaces for growth potential. As homeowners, we tend to make purchases and buy items regularly, not always creating a plan for things we no longer continue to use. This ends up cluttering your storage plan once again!
