New Storage

May 21st, 2013 at 03:19 pm

Here are some pic's of our new storage racks.

DH found a place called Safe Racks and we had them out a few weeks ago to install.

I have to say, it was expensive...about $1000.

But it is so nice to have that stuff up and out of the way. I finally have the closet back in our 4th bedroom...it is nice to be able to open the doors and not have stuff fall out on me. It mainly now holds my scrapbooking supplies and my wrapping paper/gift bags. I can actually get to the stuff without having to pull almost everything out and then put it all back.

It is mainly for large items, such as our luggage, tote along chairs, 1 bin of fall decorations, and a few storage bins of memorabilia from before kids (old albums, yearbooks, letters).

We actually have quite a bit of nice storage in the house...meaning drawers and cupboards...but for things like luggage and such, as you know, those take up alot of space in closets.

Not that we will get our money back or anything, but I think extra storage is attractive when you go to sell your house. Hopefully it will be a nice "extra".

    Yes, that's what I was thinking. It is an investment in the house. Nice.

    Racks look nice but I wished they worked on a pulley system rather than bolted to the ceiling. Will it mean that access requires backing out vehicle, taking down & setting up ladder, getting what was required and putting everything back?

    @snafu....yes, it will as some hang right over our cars. Luckily these are items we do not access often.

    What a great idea! I'd consider putting the luggage in clear trash bags, or they might get pretty dusty and possibly have some spiders take up residence.

    That looks nice and tidy! Smile
