It’s no surprise that one of the biggest challenges in smaller homes is a lack of storage. Take a look at these tips to help find a place for everything!


Office Space

Home offices aren’t used just for video calls and other day-to-day work activities, but for evening schoolwork, projects, and more. Repurpose closets by replacing hanging rods with shelving and a small desktop for homework.


The Drop Zone

Create a drop zone near the most-used entry door where everyone can unload their backpacks, shoes, jackets and more. Baskets under benches provide both seating and storage. Or consider adding a dedicated shelf or cubby for each family member’s gear.


Pantry Solutions

The smaller kitchens found in smaller homes need to at least accommodate kitchen staples and bulky items such as mixing bowls and seldom-used small appliances. Shallow pantry shelving for food items ensures that everything is easy to find and reach. This type of shelving can even be added to a niche in the wall between two studs.


Smaller homes continue to be especially popular as starter homes and with downsizers. With efficient and practical storage solutions, even a smaller home can accommodate the needs of almost any family.
