Types of Storage
When you are planning to clean and reorganize your house from top to
bottom, it is important to have a clean idea about the different
ways of storing things at home. By cleverly combining different
methods of storing you can optimally use the space that you have.
Here are a few storage methods:
Storing things in open units
This method makes use of open storage shelves, glass
cabinets and tabletops. Things should be arranged
in an extremely neat and clean fashion, as everything will be
visible. Unsightly things should be put into boxes and these should
be neatly arranged on the shelves. The important thing is that all
items stored in this manner must be organized and presentable.
Storing things in closed units
Uses chest, cupboards, drawers under beds etc. Things that get
untidy easily like clothes, office supplies; food supplies etc. are
stored in this manner so that they are not visible to all and
sundry. Things that are not used frequently or are used seasonally
are also stored in this way, in order to store them carefully till
they are used again.
Storing things conveniently
Things that are frequently and regularly used, should be stored in
such a way that, they are easily accessible to everyone as and when
needed. Things should be stored in their respective places, things
required in the bedroom should be kept there and things required for
cooking should be in the
storage shelves. Things that you use often should
be kept in top drawers of storage shelves and things not used often
should be kept in the lower drawers. Keeping frequently used things
in a convenient place in the house is important.
Storing things in remote spaces
Items that are rarely used, seasonally used, those that are of no
use at the moment but maybe of use later on etc. should be stored in
places that are least accessible like the attic storage shelves,
basement storage shelves and storage cupboards in the garage etc.
Things like files or books that need to be referred to later on,
Christmas decorations, artwork that the children have made over the
years etc. can be stored in these remote areas.
