Ingenious Household Project That Can Help You Save Some Space

There’s no limit of space that can dictate how small or how big a home can be. However, whether it’s a tiny apartment or a large mansion, we always seem to run out of space. The more space you have, the more you use. With time, you have to come up with new space-saving solutions and you have to be more and more inventive as you do so. Here are a few inspiring ideas.

Overhead garage storage rack.

When you no longer have free floor space you can turn your attention on the ceiling. For example, in the garage you can create storage racks similar to the ones in the pictures and use them to store all sorts of things. The lumber here is bolted together and to the ceiling joists. The heavy-duty storage totes are slid in and they are suspended by their molded-in rims.{found on makezine}.

Pack your clothes wisely.

The storage problems aren’t always related to the amount of space that you have available. The way you fill those spaces is also important. You need to know how to better take advantage of your storage spaces. For example, one way of saving space in your dresser is to fold your clothes and put them sideways instead of filling the dresser from front to back.{found on Jason Loper}.

Under-shelf spice racks.

In the kitchen, there are lots of things that need to be stored. It’s why you need lots of shelves and storage spaces. But when the shelves are full a problem appears. In this case you either have to add more shelves or find a different storage solution. But who says that you can only store things on the shelf and nor underneath it? Here’s a very clever and ingenious solution: magnetic, under-shelf spice racks. To make one you need spice jars, magnets, a drill, some cardboard, a pen, measuring tape and superglue. You can now guess the steps since they’re very simple.{found on instructables}.
