I admit our basement is a catch-all for everything that doesn’t have a place in the upper two levels of our home. It is so easy to dump things that I don’t have a place for upstairs into my basement and then every two months or so, I get down and dirty and try to organize it all. Then I feel so good about it and show it off to anyone who comes to visit. But two days later it becomes a slum again.
I do, however, have some basement storage tips I think could be helpful to you especially if you do not have a finished basement. Because face it, if it isn’t finished there is even MORE reason to just dump everything down there.
First, if you have the space I would recommend setting up some kind of hanging bar or getting a rolling rack to hang items that you only use certain times a year (see above picture). I have the all our winter coats hanging here now but soon that will be replaced with fall and spring coats. I also hang dresses that I only wear for special occasions and Mike’s suits here too. That way you have space in your foyer closet for your coats and guests coats when they come to visit. I don’t know about you but I get grossed out by people putting coats on a bed for a party.
