When we first build our homes we rarely think too much about storage partly because we are surrounded by a hundred other things that we have to do in the process of building a home and partly because at the point of building our homes, we are not likely to have a lot of things that we own. We subconsciously build in enough of storage to suit the things that we have but then, with time, we start to collect more things and we begin to own more things and without proper storage solutions, most of these things simply start to lie around our homes. Due to this, most of us have cluttered homes and because we live such busy lives, we do not put much thought in to clearing out the clutter and therefore, it simply collects and piles up.
Plan for storage at the point of building your home
The best thing that you could do is to plan for storage at the time that you are building your home by addition extra space in certain areas where you will be able to store your things so that you do not end up with a very cluttered home. You can have little areas that look like mini rooms built in to your walls where you can have cantilever racking in Melbourne that will help you to store a lot of things. As these will not be directly visible to the naked eye, they will not add a cluttered look to your home the way extra wardrobes and cupboards might if you buy them later. The key is to have as much storage as you can in areas that are not visible and to reduce the number of cupboards that you buy for your home because taking up ground space usually adds a cloistered and cluttered look to your home. Make an effort to keep as much ground space as possible free.
You can add longspan shelving in areas that are not very visible.If you look at beautiful homes in design magazines and admire them, you may have noticed that they look very big and spacious. You may assume this is because those houses actually are very big but the truth is that it is an illusion created by the fact that there are not a lot of things in the houses taking up space. You can make your home look very beautiful if you leave it uncluttered and if you have it painted in white to help to reflect light better and thereby adding to the illusion of space.
