In many cases, it requires a little creativity to create more storage space in your home. However, at Morning Star Builders, we are dedicated to making use of every single inch of your space.  As a result, you can claim more storage space than the average home!

What is Storage Space?

You can use storage space for a variety of purposes. It is mostly used to house or store infrequently used items, such as antiques, holiday decorations, or memorabilia. Storage space is often found in the “wasted” spaces of a home, such as the attic or basement.

Do You Need More Storage Space?

If you have a large family (think: children and grandchildren), or plan to have a large family one day, you cannot have too much storage space. The same is true even if you’re a couple with no plans for children! In our eyes, storage space is the best use for any “wasted” space and there is really no downside. So, do you need more storage space? Always!

How to Create More Storage Space in Your Home

Storage space can be hard to come by, especially in smaller homes. The good news is when you’re building your custom home you have the final word on just how much storage space you will or won’t have. By working with your architect and builder in the early stages of design, you can add storage space throughout the home. Some spaces to consider for storage space:

  • Basements
  • Attic
  • Attic above garage
  • Walk-in closets
  • Hidden rooms
  • Lofts

If storage space is a priority to you, it’s important to let you build know. In our opinion, it’s never a bad idea to create space for more storage. And the best part of building a custom home is that you can tailor it to your needs and desires!
