Basement Storage Ideas

Finished & Unfinished Basement Storage Ideas

Moisture-Proof Long-Term Storage

Keeping your belongings protected while in storage is essential for maintaining the condition of the items. Air-tight, moisture-proof containers are great for storing items. Find a designated place in your basement to put these containers and feel free to stack them if you have more than one. If your basement has water damage issues, we suggest adding a dehumidifier so your items can stay dry and mold-free. 

Utilize Wall & Ceiling Space

Basements are known to store a variety of items but sometimes there is difficulty in finding space for them. We recommend utilizing the wall and ceiling space to hang your belongings. You can purchase hooks that can be installed on your walls for you to hang coats, jackets, and other clothing items that you may not use. Shelving units can make a great addition to your basement. Once installed you can place smaller objects that need a space to be stored. Depending on the height of your ceiling, you may even be able to store things above. 

Install a Clothing Rack

Clothing racks can hold plenty of your extra clothing items. If you do not already own a clothing rack, consider purchasing one as this tool can help you keep your clothes organized and in mint condition. Hanging them up will keep them wrinkle-free and they are accessible when you are ready to use them. Once all of your clothes are hung on the rack, move the rack to a corner of the room so it is not in the way of your living space or walking path. 

Section Off the Room

If you have a cluttered basement, it can be difficult to find storage space for all of your belongings. We recommend organizing items that are meant only temporarily so they do not get in the way or damage anything when removed from their designated areas later on. We suggest separating items that are meant for storage so they do not get in the way of your furniture and living space. Once you have consolidated all of your items in closets, storage containers, and boxes, find ways to keep them in designated spaces of your basement so they do not get in the way. Listed below are items that can help you with separating your belongings:
