Choosing and using storage boxes in home
Storage boxes come in a variety of sizes and materials. They come made in cardboard, plastic or metal which gives you great choice and flexibility in how you can use them. If you only have limited space in house for home storage then it pays to measure up cupboards before you spend money on boxes. It is surprising how much useful space you can end up with by not planning ahead to make most of space you have available. Corners of bedroom cupboards, full vertical dimensions of shelves in kitchens and any spare racking in garages can all be maximised with careful choice of storage boxes.
Tips for finding extra space
Measure shelves for dead space Rearrange cupboard contents Make most of unused garages and basements. Consider buying lightweight racking useable with storage boxes
If you are using storage boxes for heavy objects then it is pretty obvious that you will need something strong, preferably metal or reinforced plastic.
You don't want disaster of bottom of boxes bursting when you are moving stuff around. Compartments built into storage boxes are also handy. Like filing folders they allow you to arrange and organize your stuff in such a way as to make it a breeze to find things quickly and efficiently.
