Nothing is quite as intimidating as looking for a suitcase or photo album in a dark, unorganised, cluttered and unsafe loft.
As warm weather rolls around and it's time to open the windows and let the breeze in, there's no better time to clean out your loft.
Keep reading for five loft storage solutions to help you get organised!
The first and most important step is to get rid of things that you don't need!
Let's face it, if there are items in your loft that you haven't used in a year, you probably don't need to keep all of them.
Go through all of your items and in classic Marie Kondo style, if it doesn't bring you joy, get rid of it!
2. Label Storage Containers
Labelling is about to become your best friend! Invest in a few large plastic storages boxes (with lids) to store your items in.
This will make stacking easy and you can write what is in each box on the outside.
Make sure that the labelled side is facing out so that you don't need to do any crazy acrobatics next time you're looking for your flip flops!
If you have old photographs stored in your loft, now is the perfect time to scan them in and preserve them for future use and generations.
The fluctuating temperatures can ruin the photos, so proper preservation is key!
4. Fold and Group
One of the best ways to get yourself organised after getting rid of unwanted and unneeded items is to properly fold and group items together.
This will make your life easier in the future when you go to look for specific items.
Instead of folding and stacking all of your items on top of each other, stack them side by side so that you can see each item.
If you ever need to quickly find and retrieve something, you'll have an easy time in the future!
5. Build Storage Into The Eaves
When creating storage space in a loft, you'll need to get creative with shelving. A sloping ceiling can make it difficult to find shelves that fit perfectly, so it's worth having some made or doing a DIY project for shelves that fit the space perfectly.
You'll be amazed how organised and put together you can make your loft look with a little innovation!
Make sure you get your loft boarded first to have a safe, secure, energy efficient storage area..
