Attics are known for being a dumping ground for seasonal decorations, unused furniture, luggage, childrens toys, and other items that aren’t used on a frequent basis. After awhile, the junk starts piling high and you begin to run out of storage space. By simply organizing your attic and getting rid of the items you no longer need, you’ll create more storage space and save yourself from a lot of frustration.
Here are our best tips for organizing your attic:
Make a Plan
Come up with an action plan for cleaning and organizing your attic. Attics aren’t always the most spacious so it’s best to find an area in your home that you can keep all of the storage containers and boxes while you’re going through everything. We recommend utilizing your garage, a patio area, or driveway for this!
Sort Through Everything
When you’re sorting through your things, make three different piles – keep, donate, trash. This will help keep the organization process as easy as possible and will give you a better overview about what you should keep and what you should get rid of. Elite Services Junk Removal & Demolition will make sure any of the items you no longer need are donated, recycled and disposed of through the proper channels.
Consider Shelving, Bins & Labels
Once you’ve gone through all of the items, consider how you are going to organize them when you bring them back up to your attic. A good place to start is with bins and labels to ensure you know what’s in each box whether they are family memories, holiday decorations, or seasonal clothing. If you have space, consider shelving units and rods to further organize your things and keep your attic as neat as possible.
