Let’s talk about storage. I know; we all love a good box.

We know that as your kids grow up, so does their collection of… stuff. From clothes to sports equipment, textbooks to gadgets (and the associated charger cables/adapters/headphones etc.), it can all quickly become overwhelming. It’s easy for their bedroom – and your home – to become a cluttered mess.
Fear not, though; we’ve been looking at some fantastic storage solutions and home improvement ideas that will help you stay organised and stress-free.

One of the easiest ways to maximise space in your home is to invest in some storage boxes. They’re versatile, affordable, and come in a range of sizes and materials to suit your needs. You can use them to store anything from toys and games to clothes and shoes, and they can be stacked away neatly in cupboards or under beds. Plus, they’re great for teaching teenagers the value of keeping their belongings organised and tidy. Teenagers hate to tidy – but they love to live in a tidy space. Help them make it easy, and they love to continue

Another practical solution to help you store your belongings is a bespoke shelving system. When you have limited space, it’s important to maximise it as much as possible. With custom shelves, you can create storage space that’s tailored to your exact needs. For instance, a simple shelf installed above your teenager’s desk can give them a dedicated space to store their textbooks, school supplies and computer. If your teenager is into sports, you could build a shelving system in the garage to store their equipment and keep it off the floor.

And let’s talk about that garage. For many households, it’s the ultimate storage space, but it can quickly become a cluttered mess. As an aside, the best way to make the most of a garage is to invest in some quality garage flooring. Not only does it look great, but it also protects your garage floor from spills and stains, making it easier to clean. Plus, garage flooring can help prevent slips; especially important if your kids are using the garage frequently.

In addition to garage flooring, it’s essential to have proper garage storage solutions in place. This could include a combination of shelving, hooks and cabinets to keep your belongings organised and off the floor. When everything has its own dedicated spot, it’s easier to find what you need when you need it. So, whether you need to store your lawnmower, tools, or bicycles, there’s a garage storage solution that will work.

As your kids grow up, so does their collection of things. It’s important to have a plan in place to keep your home organised and clutter-free. From storage boxes to bespoke solutions there are many home improvement solutions to choose from. Taking a look at storage solutions is a great first step towards a more organised, stress-free home.

A 70's child, I’ve been married for a Very Long Time, and appear to have made four children, and collected one large and useless dog along the way. I work, I have four children, I have a dog… ergo, I do not do dusting or ironing. I began LittleStuff back in (gulp) 2004. I like huge mugs of tea. And Coffee. And Cake. And a steaming cone of crispy fresh fluffy chips, smothered in salt and vinegar. #healthyeater When I grow up I am going to be quietly graceful, organised and wear lipstick every day. In the meantime I *may* have a slight butterfly-brain issue.
