3 Winter Storage Solutions That Make Life Easier
An organized house makes sense any time of the year, but there are certain items that come in handy when you need to keep your household warm and cozy all winter. Here are three DIY winter storage solutions and organization ideas.
- Winter accessories or snow gear organizer. Organize your snow gear, such as boots, hats, coats, snowshoes, and so forth. This can be a bench or coat rack or a combination of them. You can make a better use of space, by using the space under your bed, on the ceiling, or against the wall.
- Mudroom winter storage bench. This fab furniture piece allows for hidden boot storage and you can add hooks and cubbies at the top for additional storage. You can put additional storage above the bench with shelving and racks.
- Make a sliding storage system on the ceiling or create under the bed storage. This makes the best use of your space. With effective use of space, you can make sure you are not inconvenienced because you have used too much space.
Do-It-Yourself Winter Organizing Options
Adding a coat rack is an efficient and effective way to put up your coats, sweaters, and hats. By taking a board and adding hooks and baskets to store your winter gear, such as hats, gloves, mittens, suspenders, and snowsuits, you can make better use of your space and make accessing your winter gear much faster and more efficient. There are many simple, fast do-it-yourself approaches that allow for great organization while making the best use of space availability.
A ladder wardrobe offers an elegant touch to a rustic, primitive, or farmhouse décor. By taking two ladders and adding wood shelves, you have a place to hang clothing as well as a place to set boots and shoes. You can add baskets on the ends for hats, gloves, and mittens. You can add extra storage for umbrellas and other items.
