5 Brilliant Ways to Organize Your Basement

Is your basement becoming the catch-all for all your clutter? A basement, whether finished or unfinished, is usable space. Organize your basement or cellar quickly and easily with these tips.


Moisture Control

Moisture is a common issue in basements. This may be the reason you hesitate to use the space to store items currently cluttering up your house. However, if you don’t have an aversion to plastic, then it’s the answer to all your storage needs. Plastic bins come in all shapes and sizes these days with click-top lids to keep any moisture from entering. Many bins have stacking lids, allowing you to store vertically, as high as your basement will allow.


Hooks, Hooks, and More Hooks

Hooks come in all shapes, sizes, and finishes. Suspend your bikes from the wall or ceiling. Hang coils of rope, hose, and more. The walls and ceiling are literally the limit when you utilize the many styles and weight-bearing options of hooks. Even better, they make a visually appealing display while leaving tons of usable organizing space available.


Built-In Wall Storage

If you like traditional storage solutions, you can install wooden built-in shelving. It’s not portable, but it does allow you to follow the layout of the wall, ensuring you’re not wasting any space. Once built, these shelves are perfect for board games, large toys, and books. Make it more modern by adding fabric bins and totes to hold smaller items.


Pegboard Designs

Pegboard wall storage is commonly seen in a handyman’s garage, but the storage applications can be used in nearly any space. In fact, the most flexible part of pegboard storage is what you can hang from it. Attach small, pop-out bins, open faced file storage, or even containers for tiny toys. Imagine a finished basement with arts-and-crafts pegboard storage!
