How to: Maximise your storage space during a renovation:

Clever storage ideas for your renovation.

If you are about to embark on planning your home extension, now is the time to make all those home storage dreams come true.

Extra cabinet space in your kitchen to free up cluttered bench tops, a big scullery or walk-in pantry or extra shelving in a living area to creating a storage room under your new staircase.

These are all clever storage possibilities when renovating to create the home you want.

When renovating or extending your home, it is the perfect time to work out how you can maximise space within your new addition.

One of the most common questions homeowners ask when getting their new extension plans drawn up is: “We have very little storage, can I please have more storage?”

Often this is an easy achievement by chatting to an expert designer who has experience in creating a home which maximises clever storage solutions.

Some popular clever storage ideas include incorporating a simple broom cupboard in a passage way to store brooms and a vacuum.

If you have a stick vacuum, adding a power point means your vacuum will always be charged and ready to go whenever you need it.

When it comes to adding a new upper floor extension, utilising the space available under the staircase is a smart way to create a huge amount of storage in an area of untapped potential.

It is ideal for big bulky items such as suitcases, Christmas trees, children’s toys etc.

It could also be fitted out to create the perfect wine cellar/storage area.

Furthermore, a second storey extension enables an opportunity to add a door which accesses the existing roof space.

By adding some sheet flooring into the ceiling space you have even more much-needed storage space to fill.

If your renovation is taking place in your kitchen there are plenty of clever storage ideas you can incorporate.

If you want to hide your messy bin you can create a pull out cabinet with a bin amongst cupboards.

A scullery is another popular addition to add further bench and drawer space and additional cabinetry to free up clutter in your kitchen.
