Hidden Storage in Plain Sight
Looking for extra places to put things? Your home has all sorts of “hidden” storage space. Today you’ll learn how to open a whole new world (storage-wise) in every room of your home.
Behind your drywall and paneling lie countless hidden spaces nestled between the two-by-four studs. While some are filled with pipes, wiring, and sheet metal duct work, others are wide open and ready to be put to use. The best time to note which are which is when a home or new room is under construction. Take photos or make diagrams of empty spaces that you can open up and later develop into various types of storage.
However, this is only for inside walls, as outer walls use this inner space for insulation. If your rooms are already done and the walls are finished, it’s still not too late. It just takes a bit more investigation to determine which areas are storage-ready!
