5 Great Storage Options For Your Rental

Published: October 29th, 2015

When it comes to neatly storing your household items away, it can quickly become a mess if you don’t have anywhere to put them.

Take a look at our 5 Great Storage Options For Your Rental.

1. Boxes

Believe it or not, boxes can look quite sophisticated when placed correctly. A stack of boxes in the corner of a room can look very elegant and provide a great storage solution. You can choose from a range of materials including wicker, metal, plastic or cardboard, dependent on the remainder of your furniture and what design you like best.

2. Tubs

This type of storage is extremely useful if you have children. You can store clothing, towels, toys, cleaning items, beauty products and sports equipment in them to name a few. If you’re able to get your hands on tubs with lids you can stack them on top of one another in any location you see fit.

3. Trays

Trays are a great way of storing items you don’t necessarily want on display. You can place these trays under your bed so they are out of the way or in cabinets or drawers. Trays that come on wheels are great for under the bed as they can be rolled out whenever you need a particular item. You can even place trays in or on dressing tables and your office desk.

4. Hooks

Hooks are a fantastic way of storing/hanging household items. You can have over the door hooks or hang them on the wall. They are suitable for hanging coats, umbrellas, hats and dressing gowns on for example – the list is endless. Removable adhesive hooks are another great idea, which can be stuck in any area of the house. Ensure your landlord is happy with you hanging any of these varoations on your wall before you commence.

5. Open Pantries

If there is no pantry in your kitchen, don’t fear. A bookshelf can be a fantastic alternative. You can keep all of your cooking supplies in here in addition to your cutlery. This is a great way of storing your kitchen items and also means you can find what you want without hesitation.
