Don’t Forget the Storage Space in These 3 Rooms

Columbia Builders Storage Space

A laundry room with extra cabinets adds a lot of important storage space to a home.

One of the most important aspects of a home is how much storage space it has. The more time spent in a home, the more memories and objects it accumulates. Storage space is an obvious factor in some parts of the home such as the kitchen and bedrooms, but there are three other rooms that should also be considered when thinking about storage space.


Bathrooms are often the smallest rooms in a home, but they can also be some of the worst offenders when it comes to not having proper storage. In addition to daily essentials such as toothpaste and deodorant, bathrooms host beauty and first aid products. All of these items need to live together in harmony while still maintaining their own individual spaces so they are easily organized and differentiated. It’s important to remember storage space for the shower, too. Showers have to hold a plethora of body cleaning products, so it’s essential to have space ready for those items.

Family Room

Planning for storage space in the family room is absolutely necessary. The family room is where everyone gathers in a home and therefore it is an area that collects an excess of items that don’t belong there. Without appropriate storage space, the family room is always at risk of becoming host to messes that are not easy to clean up. By planning ahead and having storage incorporated into the family room, loose items will have a place to live and be easy to manage when things get messy.

Laundry Room

Like the bathroom, laundry rooms are often small and sometimes they aren’t even their own room – occasionally being attached to a bathroom or found inside a garage. However, laundry rooms need ample storage space to hold a lineup of cleaning products as well as large baskets of laundry. In addition, laundry rooms can be a good place to store other household cleaners and unsafe items in overhead cabinets to keep them out of reach of children and pets.
