People acquire many things over the years, and it can accumulate to more than we realize. Your home feels cluttered, and it seems like you have found a spot for everything except yourself. That’s where FRED comes in; we can provide built-in cabinet and shelving options that not only make your home look better but also maximize your space. In this blog post, we will share several ways that FRED can maximize your space!

If You Can Sit On It, You Can Store In It


Anything that you can lay or sit on should have a wide surface area. If you aren’t utilizing space beneath it, then you are wasting valuable storage. When purchasing a bed, opt for styles that include roll-out drawers or a high enough frame from under-the-bed containers. You can also try a few DIY projects to transform your chairs and benches into storage chests. This will help keep the surrounding area tidy when guests arrive.

Wall Space Is Storage Space


If you have empty wall space, you have storage space. One of the key principles of creating wall storage is to think vertically, and your walls are the perfect places to start. FRED can customize shelves, cabinets, and hooks to hang items that can no longer fit on your furniture. You ask for it, and we can build it.

Raise the Floor not the Roof


Raising the floor for storage may seem like an extreme idea but many people do it for stylistic and storage purposes. A popular trend has been to implement this in playrooms or play areas; giving kids their own space to roam while also creating a separate storage component directly beneath the room. It’s clean, it’s efficient, and provides more storage space without drastically altering the room. And who has more things than kids?

We have listed a few ways that Fred can help maximize space in your home, but there are plenty of other solutions available. If you would like to learn more about our carpentry services, you can find more details on our website, or schedule FRED for a free consultation.
