Good day hey! I’m so excited as a result of in the present day I FINALLY get to disclose my storage room makeover … and this isn’t simply an unusual storage room. It’s fairly “additional” in all the perfect methods. Particularly my new greatest pal (a freezer that’s making all my goals come true). And I positively went a bit overboard making the room aesthetically pleasing—however hey, this storage room is truthfully life altering. I really feel like an actual grownup lastly!
We’re partnering with The Dwelling Depot for this submit. They’re our go-to for therefore many tasks, provides, home equipment, fixtures—you title it. (Oh sure, and PLANTS, haha). When beginning to plan this room out, we knew it’d be good to accomplice on since they’ve all the things we would have liked for the house. Right here’s a earlier than and after view. This storage closet is an extended hallway closet within the the again of what was once our storage. Since we now not have a storage, we needed to make use of this room to retailer all our additional low season stuff (after which some!). There’s a separate massive closet in our basement for instruments (bigger ones like saws) as effectively.
To be truthful, I didn’t take a earlier than picture with all our STUFF, but it surely was piled so excessive in right here that you just couldn’t even stroll! You should utilize your creativeness.
And, right here’s a view from the other way. Including these cabinets was the largest game-changer so we will manage all our decorations, seasonal stuff, occasion stuff, toddler garments we’re saving for the following child, and so on. I’m SO IN LOVE with these cabinets. I used these Sterilite 70 QT. Extremely Storage Packing containers to fill the cabinets. They’re nice for organizing all our random issues—I like that I can nonetheless see the stuff inside them.
On IG Tales earlier this summer time, I took a vote on whether or not we must always paint the door a light-weight or darkish coloration. So many individuals voted darkish, however then somebody identified to me that if we did white you possibly can see spiders and I used to be SOLD.
I like the white as a result of it’s only a contemporary, clear slate. This room is 90% practical decisions, however the white paint is my 10% just-because-it-makes-me-happy. And I’m positively extra motivated to scrub and manage areas which are visually pleasing … that’s regular, proper?
Let’s discuss storage! I’ll endlessly be tweaking these storage bins as a result of I don’t need to maintain stuff we aren’t going to make use of. At this level, since we’ve lived in our residence three years, I’m donating all the things we haven’t used and aren’t planning to make use of this coming 12 months.
So all the things on this room is stuff we love and are going to make use of. It’s actually necessary to me that we’re not simply retaining stuff for the sake of retaining it. I’m actually grateful to have a spot to retailer stuff for upcoming tasks now since I feel you’ve all seen my workplace (it generally turns into the place we throw stuff after we clear—yikes). Intentional storage is so a lot better.
Vacation stuff is a BIG class for me. It’s essentially the most grandma factor about me, I feel. I like seasonal decor. I’m so excited to have a spot to retailer all of it collectively now in order that when the following season rolls round I’ll truly know the place all of it is!
On this wall, we added a Dimensions white pegboard. That is certainly one of my go-to concepts for storage as a result of I like how one can customise it!
Let’s obsess in regards to the freezer, we could? It’s the Frigidaire Frost Freeze Upright Freezer. I’m so so so enthusiastic about this! It’s an entire game-changer for our residence.
So I like our fridge, however the freezer a part of this can be very small. For that cause, we all the time knew we needed so as to add a deep freezer to our basement storage room. I all the time envisioned the form of chest deep freezer that we had rising up, however my mother steered that we do an upright freezer as a result of it’s a lot simpler to maintain organized and see all the things you’ve got. Greatest recommendation EVER—thanks, mother.
The freezer is useful for therefore many issues:
-Storing overflow for what can’t slot in our freezer in our kitchen.
-Straightforward junk meals meals for weekends and cheat nights (Jeremy and I are attempting to swear off ordering a lot supply meals and this will likely be extraordinarily useful).
-Maintaining our fridge wholesome. We prefer to eat primarily wholesome meals, however then splurge for weekends and particular events. It’s essentially the most annoying factor ever to me when there’s a tube of cookie dough or a pint of ice cream staring me within the face after I’m attempting to be wholesome.
-Maintaining stocked up on simple meals. We’ve got been making a lot vegetable soup currently and I’m so joyful I can hoard my frozen veggies. We additionally prefer to maintain choices for fast meals readily available for Nova which are wholesome (she loves cauliflower fried rice simply as a lot as common fried rice and all of us love steamed broccoli).
-Maintaining substances like pie crust readily available so we will make vacation reminiscences.
-With the ability to refill on issues we all the time use (like inventory UP) when there’s a very good sale.
Forgive me in the event you suppose it’s foolish that I simply listed out all of the issues I’m going to make use of my freezer for, but it surely’s such a giant sensible improve for us. We’re so excited!
Because of The Dwelling Depot for sponsoring this submit! And thanks a lot for studying! Collin and I had a lot enjoyable engaged on this mission. It’s positively a type of SUPER practical areas that may repay for years and years to come back!
