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 kitchen 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.
