The tiny house movement has become more and more popular over the past few years. While moving into tiny homes is becoming a popular move, there’s one major barrier to living in a tiny house: the lack of storage space. Just because you’re moving into a tiny home doesn’t mean you need to throw everything else you own away. Instead, take advantage of Northern Beaches Storage from EJ Shaw Storage.
Evaluate the necessity
Before you start packing up your boxes, you’ll need to evaluate the necessity of each item you own. Ask yourself how often you use each item, or if the item means something important to you. If you never use an item at all, or you don’t even remember why you have it, it’s safe to say you don’t need to bring it with you into your tiny home.
Cut down on decor
In a tiny home, there’s a lot less space that needs decorating. Because of this, you need to cut down on the decor items you own. Too much decor can quickly make your tiny home feel too cluttered and messy. Pick a few statement pieces to bring with you.
Utilise vertical storage
Often, tiny homes don’t have a lot of floor space, but the roofs can be quite high. Because of this, you need to take advantage of vertical wall storage instead of floor storage. Corner shelving units and wall shelving can best make use of the vertical space inside your tiny home.
Invest in multi-use items
The lack of space inside your storage unit means you want to try and invest in items with multiple uses. For example, you’ll want to have cookware that can be used in a few ways rather than several different pots and pans. You can also invest in storage furniture, such as bench seating with storage inside, or staircases with built-in-cupboards or shelving.
Take advantage of Northern Beaches Storage
