Many homes lack enough traditional storage space – closets, kitchen cabinets, a garage. What to do? Have you considered attic storage? It’s a great place for items that you need infrequently, like holiday decorations and seasonal items.
Like any space, when using your attic for storage, you want to maximize that odd-shaped space. I found a great product, available for easy installation, that can make your attic another great space in your home.
While many homeowners complain that they don’t have enough space, they may have more than they think. Surprisingly, according to a survey by the American Cleaning Institute, most clutter in the home is really the result of disorganization.
“The majority of people have plenty of space, they just aren’t using the space wisely or efficiently,” explains Perri Kersh, a professional organizer, owner of Neat Freak and member of the National Association of Professional Organizers, “The attic, for example, is an ideal place for storing certain infrequently used items such as holiday decor.”
Organizational products can help you make better use of valuable space that is otherwise wasted. The new AtticMaxx Shelving System, for example, provides organized attic space and easy access to stored items. The shelf system mounts between attic tresses – the triangular wooden structures used to support a pitched roof – to create vertical storage space around an attic floor. It installs in minutes with a screwdriver, a level and four screws. Visit www.AtticMaxx.com for more information and free organizing tips.
