Moving into a new place is an exciting experience. One of the best parts is getting to use all the cupboards and cabinets in your house for things you never had room for before! This blog post will show you how to put every cabinet and cupboard in your new home to good use. You’ll find that there are many different ways to do this, but it’s important not to get too overwhelmed by the possibilities. Start with one or two ideas, and go from there.
- Storing items like extra kitchen utensils or towels using a cupboard helps them remain clean while out of sight. You may want to know how to measure a cabinet so it all fits in.
- Put storage containers on top of cabinets to store smaller items like spices, cookies, snacks, and chips
- Using wall space where possible can be more valuable than you realize. Installing a corner shelf or putting up hooks for your coats instead of storing them in the closet can free up some valuable real estate inside closets while making things easier to access when needed
- Cabinets can be great for storing infrequently used items like winter gear, old clothes, and even extra bedding if you’re not planning to use it right away and don’t have a guest bedroom. The nice thing is that storage boxes are generally easy to access since they slide out from one side of your mattress or box spring. You might also want to consider adding drawer dividers inside these containers so things stay organized
- If you have extra paint or nails from a recent project, putting them inside small storage bins is an easy way to store them until the next time they’re needed. The same is true with some basic tools like saws, screwdrivers, and hammers.
- Cabinets can be another great spot for storing infrequently used items such as holiday decorations (like fake Halloween pumpkins) that won’t fit in other storage spaces around your home. This idea works well if you live somewhere where seasons frequently change since it’s likely these types of things will only last through one season before becoming obsolete again. Just take care, not to overload containers so their weight doesn’t break your cabinet or make it difficult to slide them in and out
- If you don’t want to use the kitchen as your main recycling area, try using a spare cupboard instead. Just make sure they can fit inside without having to be emptied too often since you’ll want to leave space for food items
- If your new home is smaller than the one you are moving out of, it can be challenging to get rid of everything, so try using every available cabinet and cupboard to store extra things that won’t fit somewhere else. This idea works great if you have any decorative items or even pots and pans that need more room but don’t belong anywhere else. Just keep in mind that this might not be possible with some types of furniture (like bookcases), which will already take up whatever space they naturally require before anything else is added on top.
- If your cupboards are looking a bit bare (or maybe you don’t want to keep things inside them), consider installing hooks on the doors for coats, hats, and bags. You can also use these spots for scarves or leashes if there’s room. Just remember that every hook counts, so try to find ones that fit well with what you’re hoping to put inside of them.
- To stay organized when moving into a new home, label all boxes as soon as possible before unpacking begins. This will help ensure everything goes back where it belongs after being moved around by movers instead of confusing once they’ve been set down somewhere unexpected. It’ll also make life easier in case any need to be returned later since you’ll know exactly where to look for them.
- If you’re short on space, try using a small luggage rack as an area to store your travel souvenirs and important documents like passports so they don’t get damaged or misplaced while moving around the town. You can also use these racks to keep track of keys and spare change at the front door, so there’s no need to search all over after coming home from work. Plus, it looks much neater than keeping everything spread out everywhere else since you never know when guests might come by unexpectedly.
- If possible, try leaving some drawers empty in other furniture pieces (such as dressers) because this will give items inside more room to sit comfortably instead of feeling too cramped together.
It’s hard to always find space for what you want to keep. Using cabinets and other storage ideas can solve the problem.
