Easy Basement Storage Ideas to Declutter & Organize

Pack Moisture-Proof to Ward off Damage

Keep your basement-stored items dry and in excellent condition with the right moisture-proof containers and a dehumidifier. Utilize easy, preventative measures to protect stored belongings from mold, mildew, water damage—even over the long term! You can also add moisture absorbers, such as DampRid, to keep the extra humidity from affecting your items.

Take Opportunities to Store Vertically

Transform your space from cluttered to an inviting and functional living space with the right storage solutions. Consider adding shelves or hooks on the walls to hold items like toys, tools, or bicycles off the ground. For wall storage options that fit your budget, opt for affordable shelving units – there are even built-in choices available!

Ceilings also offer usable storage space. Arrange items as flat as possible on the ceiling to avoid taking up headspace. Free up space on your basement floor, so you can walk through and create a comfortable living space.

Use a Clothing Rack

Create a personalized storage solution for your changing wardrobe needs with this one simple addition. Transform a corner of your basement into the perfect seasonal closet, and give winter jackets, snow suits, and other garments their own place to call home! Hang clothes on clothing racks or use section organizers to make vertical space work in your favor, keeping clothes tidy and wrinkle-free while optimizing what you wear each season.

Divide the Basement into Sections

Maximize your basement’s potential with careful organization. Section off separate spaces, like closets or back rooms, to store items safely away. Keep a space for couches and hanging out clear of storage items by making sure there is a designated for the belongings you are looking to store.
