If there’s one thing you can’t have too much of in a home remodel, it’s storage space. Whether you live in a small home where you need to maximize your space with smart storage solutions or you are simply trying to be more organized, there are opportunities to add organization to each room during your home remodel. Remodeling your home is the perfect opportunity to incorporate more shelving and storage so you can improve your overall organization. The following are some storage ideas for home remodels that can eliminate wasted space and create a neat and organized environment.

Kitchen

Have you always dreamed of reconfiguring your kitchen in a way that makes it more spacious and functional? If your kitchen has an awkward layout with little shelving and storage, work with a professional home remodeling company that can rework your kitchen layout to create a reach-in or walk-in pantry. 

Living Room

Adding built-in shelving to your living room is a practical and aesthetically pleasing way to add valuable storage space. If you have books, magazines and other items cluttering up your living room, consider beautiful built-in shelving as part of your home remodel.

Hallway

In many homes, the hallway closet is a messy mix of coats, shoes and other odds and ends. And since you can close the door and forget about it until next time, it is often one of the most disorganized areas of the home. Adding overhead shelving above the hanging rod is a great way to make what was once wasted space an organized area for everything from towels to bed linens, cleaning supplies and seasonal items.

Bathroom

Small bathrooms and bathrooms with pedestal sinks often lack critical storage space in a room that gets a ton of everyday use. If you can replace your pedestal sink with a vanity, you can gain valuable space to store extra toilet paper, cleaning supplies and other bathroom essentials. Replacing a fixed mirror with a mirrored medicine cabinet is another smart storage solution for a bathroom remodel.

Bedroom

If you find yourself constantly decluttering your bedroom, you may want to consider adding organization to the room with a storage bench. If you have a bay or bow window, you can instantly add charm and character to your bedroom with a window storage seat where you can stow extra pillows and blankets.

Garage

The garage doesn’t have to be a cluttered catch-all for your family’s outdoor gear, gardening tools and sports equipment. You can easily transform the wasted space in your garage into useful storage by installing a wall organizer. Featuring either drawers and cabinets or hooks and shelves, you can customize your garage organizer to your family’s needs and the size of the space.
