Organize and Maximize Your Home's Storage Space

When selling a home at the Lake of the Ozarks, one of the main things that buyers are going to be looking for when viewing your home is the amount of storage and closet space is available. Your home may provide an ample amount of closet space, but if you're not utilizing it correctly and your closets are packed to the brim with stuff, buyers aren't going to be able to see the maximum use. Because of this, it's essential to take time to clean out your closets and maximize all of the storage space in your home. This week, the best real estate team at the Lake of the Ozarks wants to share with you some tips to organize your home's storage space.

Start by emptying EVERYTHING out of your closet. The general rule of thumb is to keep items you've worn or used in the past year and toss or donate everything else. Separate everything into piles by category: seasonal, keep, repair, donate and toss. This exercise is going to introduce you to storage space you never knew you had.

Plan Your Layout
Use every square inch of space and consider installing a closet organization system. There are several DIY ideas out there in the Pinterest and Google world that can provide you with useful tips on designing your space and planning your layout.

Organize Your Accessories
Bins, shoe boxes and hanging organizers provide functional storage options for your accessories, shoes and seasonal items. This short video will inspire you and show you an easy way to get control of the clutter by using bins and a labeling system.

Put it All Together
Once you're ready to restock your closet, put the least-used items on the high shelves or pack them away and clothes or items that you use often at eye level.  Store shoes toward the bottom. Hang all your clothing with the hangers facing toward you. Sort your wardrobe by season, clothing type and/or color so you can find what you need quickly.

Hangers Make a Difference
Use padded hangers for delicate fabrics, plastic hangers for shirts and pants and wood hangers for suits. Get rid of wire hangers and remove clothes from dry-cleaning bags.

Maintain the Organization
Once you have everything organized and put away, don't revert to your old habits. As you wear and launder your clothes, hang them up. As you take items out for use, put them away when you are finished with them.

Not only will following through with these tips help to maximize your storage space, but it will allow buyers to see the true potential that your home has to offer. The more storage your home offers, the more enticing your home will be.
