Are household items taking over your home?
Having things stored and organized makes life less stressful. That’s because you can keep things neatly tucked away and find them when you need them.

You can also purchase premade storage units at home improvement centers as well as ready-to-assemble kits.

Track-type closet storage systems can make better use of closet space than a single shelf and hanging rod. They also can improve pantries with few storage options.
To install track storage:
Laundry Room Cubbies
Increase storage space in a laundry room by adding a storage unit to hold individual laundry baskets for each member of the family.
Construct the unit from ¾-inch medium-density fiberboard (MDF) to fit the space available. Support the shelves using 1-by-2-inch wood cleats attached to the sides of the unit.
Actually use wasted space under a bed by building a large drawer from MDF that slides under the bed. Just attach casters to the bottom and a handle on the front to allow it to slide in and out.
Premade plastic storage drawers are also available, or you can mount casters on the bottom of old dresser drawers.
To increase attic storage, add a hanging shelf to the rafters. Here’s how:

To keep pot lids handy, mount a towel rack inside a kitchen cabinet door to store them on. Here’s how:
Custom-built bookcases are great for storing books and displaying family photographs.

Toilet Topper Cabinet
Mount a cabinet above the toilet to add more storage space to your bathroom. Premade units are available at home centers, or you can make one from MDF.
When using MDF in a high-humidity area like a bathroom, paint all the sides and edges to keep it from absorbing moisture.
Adding a recessed medicine cabinet is another way to add storage space to a bathroom. NuTone’s locking bath cabinet fits in the space between two studs and features a keyed lock to keep medicine safe from children.
Here’s how to add it:
Recessed Wall Cabinet
This recessed wall cabinet is made from solid oak and oak plywood and serves as a charging station for cell phones as well as a place to hang keys.
An overhanging lip on the face of the cabinet hides the rough edge of the hole while an electrical outlet mounted inside the bottom door provides power for chargers.
