Whether your living room is playing double duty as a home office, your spare bedroom has transformed into a classroom, or your basement has to function as a home gym, Suncast offers smart storage solutions designed to help you free up space and make the most out of every inch of your home.

First, make a list of your family’s specific needs. Having a clear list of priorities will help you make the most out of your space. Consider questions such as:

  • What spaces need to serve more than one function?
  • Does the space need to be quiet and/or private at certain times?
  • How often does the space need to be reset for normal usage?

The next step in creating your multipurpose home is to organize and declutter any and all relevant spaces. Think of each room as a blank slate and eliminate anything unnecessary or that might create a distraction. You can move unused items to the garage or shed, create a donation pile, or relocate them to a different room in your home.

In order to free up as much space as possible, you may find it helpful to move seasonal items such as outdoor holiday decorations and supplies to outdoor storage solutions like the Suncast BMS6202 vertical shed. Create a separate space for anything you know you’ll need easy access to. Consider donating items your family no longer needs—check with local organizations for pickup options or drop-off sites. This is a great way to clear space with the potential to help another family in need!

Once you’ve cleared out the clutter, think through how to organize your multipurpose spaces. When setting up a school area for younger children, tie back cords for safety and make sure you have good task lighting. Use sticky notes on the walls of your home office rather than a space-hogging bulletin board—they’ll help keep you organized, liven up the room, and best of all, they can be easily removed with no damage to your walls, wallpaper, or paint. Keep some baskets or decorative boxes handy so you can easily reset the space at the end of the day.

Whatever you do, stay flexible. Your family’s needs may continue to change, but with a little organization and creativity, your multipurpose space is more than up to the challenge!
