With summer winding down it will soon be time to pack up your summer wardrobe and bedding so you can change over to your cozy fall and winter options. However, if you don’t have a lot of storage room in your condo, that can be a daunting task.
Have a look at these five condo storage solutions and start planning where you will stash the items you don’t need for the next few months.
Under Bed Storage Containers
If your bed has space under it, this is a great place for storage. This often overlooked space is perfect for low-profile storage containers that can hold clothes, bedding, and more.
There are many container options available, so you’re not limited to clear plastic if you want something more stylish.
These bags are a fantastic solution for storing clothes in the off-season. By packing items in and sucking the air out, you are creating a small, compact package that you can store in a closet, under your bed, or in a storage locker.
Use multiple vacuum bags to sort your stored clothing so that you can easily unpack them in the spring.
Containers for the Closet
If you have room in your bedroom closet or another closet in your condo, you can take advantage of stackable storage containers to keep your out-of-season pieces tucked away until you need them again.
Tip: In this case, clear containers might be best, so you can see easily locate your items if needed.
We’ve talked about benches and stools before as storage options, and this is another opportunity to use them. If you have blankets in the living room that you don’t need in the summer, you can store them in a bench.
And if you have room for a bench or stool in the bedroom you can also take advantage of a bench to store smaller pieces that you want to keep out of sight until needed.
Don’t forget about your storage locker. If your condo comes with a storage unit, take advantage of that space. This is an example that lends itself well to sturdy plastic containers that you can pack full of out of season items and stack as high as your space will allow.
Tip: Keep a list of what is in your storage locker so you can easily and quickly identify items that you already own rather than forgetting and buying a second version of something you already have.
