How to Maximize Storage Space
It's certain that there's space in your home that could be used for storage but may not be. All it will take is a little time and ingenuity to turn this unused space into useful storage space.

S 12 STORAGE UNDERSTAIRS

Most new homes, and many older properties, may have enclosed staircases, which hide valuable space. These can often be opened to create valuable shelf space. Create a storage area by enclosing the underside of the staircase that leads to your attic. This can be a prime space for extra storage.

Why not put the space under a stairway to work. Construct a wheeled, wedge-shape container that fits into the farthest area under the steps.

Ready-made shelves can be installed just about anywhere to create storage for books and decorative items, toys, glassware, china, and just about anything that will fit on a 6- or 12-inch ledge. If you intend to store heavy items, make sure the brackets are securely anchored.

A hallway that's wide enough can double as a storage area if you line the walls with shelves or shallow units. Also for the bulk items such as golf clubs, skis, and camping equipment.
