Basements can make for an excellent storage location inside your home. Large floor space and easy access make them perfect spots for off-season clothes, holiday decorations, sports gear, and more. But things can stack up quickly, and if you don't have an orderly system for your basement, it can become another room that you will need to de-clutter soon!

Junkyard Dogs is here to help you spring clean your basement and maximize its storage capabilities in a safe and efficient manner with these de-cluttering tips.

  1. Have a Plan: Before you start bringing boxes or furniture downstairs, make sure you have a plan for your storage layout. This will help you avoid piling things up and not using the space to its full potential.
  1. Take Advantage of Vertical Space: Every basement is different, but basements of any size can benefit from using vertical space. Hanging racks from the ceiling or wall is a great way to keep things off the floor.
  1. Use Your Stairs: Depending on your basement, an open staircase can be a great storage location. You can easily stack containers in an organized manner and utilize the available vertical space under the stairs while you're at it.
  1. Get Creative: With all these storage boxes neatly packed in your basement, it might be time to think outside the box! Don't be afraid to get creative, like using hooks to hang bulky or awkward-sized things like a bike or snowboard from your wall instead of overhead or on the floor.
