Basements can be a lifesaver when it comes to the stuff you need to store close at hand. If you are lucky enough to have a basement in your home you will want to make sure you are taking full advantage of what it has to offer. Whether you need a more organized storage space or are planning on using it as a living space, you need to have a game plan regarding its organization. We at All American Self Storage in Redwood City, Ca can help you through the process. Below are some steps you should consider following when it comes time to overhaul your basement. 

 

Start by Sorting

Before you can have your basement transformed into the space you have always wanted, you will need to empty out its contents and sort through all of the items you have been storing. Creating piles of items that you will keep, toss, donate, or store. Be picky when it comes to the things you are thinking about keeping. For your sentimental items you just can’t seem to part with but don’t have the space for, you can trust All American Self Storage in Redwood City, Ca to keep them out of harm’s way. 

 

Create Workable Zones

Before you embark on putting everything back into your basement in an organized manner, you will need to create zones. Each zone should have a function and/or have similar items being stored together. For example, if you are using your basement primarily for storage you will want to keep all of your camping gear in one area, tools in another, and kitchen accessories in an area that is easy to reach. 

 

Contain your Items

To achieve ultimate organization you will want to invest in containers for the majority of your items. Not only will these containers keep everything together, it will also protect them from unexpected spills, dust, and dirt. Plastic bins with sealable lids are the best for storing the majority of your items. Remember to label and place your bins in an organized fashion. Buying and installing shelving is a great way to keep your bins organized and off of the floor. 

 

Now that you have achieved your goal of organizing your basement you are able to use it for any type of room or activity you have been dreaming of.
