7 Ways to Add More Storage Space to Your Home

7种给你家增加更多存储空间的方法

Last week when we talked about undoing the mess and putting things away, one topic we discussed in the comments was how hard it is to put things away when your home has little to no storage space.

上周我们谈论如何收拾杂物并将他们收起来,谈话中我们讨论的一个话题是在一个小到没有储存空间的家庭要收拾起来有多么困难。

It’s not only a problem with apartments, many houses lack good closets, and everything ends up out in the open.

这不仅仅是住公寓常有的问题,许多缺少物品柜的家庭也会有这个烦恼,最后所有杂物都被摆在了外面。

When most people think about adding storage, they often think of containers like baskets, boxes, and jars, but you still need a place for the containers to go. You want to avoid having too many small containers. Like Zoanna mentioned, a lot of storage containers can make any house look cluttered, even when stuff is stored neatly in them. Before you think about containers, let’s think about space.

大多数人在考虑要添置储物容器的时候常常想到的是筐子、箱子和坛子之类的容器,可是你依旧需要为储物容器找安置的空间。你希望避免许多小容器。正如Zoanna所说,即使你将杂物整洁的摆放进储物柜,太多的储物柜也会让你家里看起来乱七八糟。所以在你考虑储物容器之前,先让我们想想可以利用的空间。

Assuming that you’ve sorted through your stuff and given away what you don’t need, let’s brainstorm how to add more storage space to your home.

假定你已经将你的杂物彻底分类,并且将不需要的东西扔在一边了,然后让我们来一场头脑风暴想想如何给你的家里增加更多储存空间。

1. Shelves. For the square footage, shelves make the biggest difference. We  have restaurant-style metal shelves in our closet. They are well-suited for apartment living because they’re adjustable and can be taken apart when we move. The best part is they don’t need to be mounted to the wall.

1、架子。架子可以使你的使用面积产生巨大变化。在我们的衣柜里有餐厅式金属架。这非常适合公寓生活,因为它们的可调整性而且搬家的时候可以随意拆卸。最好的是架子不需要安装到墙壁上。

I got ours used from a local grocer and it held hundreds of pounds of food, so it’s strong. I found it on Craigslist (listed for sale in the business equipment category).

我家的是从一所当地的杂货铺买到的,它足够结实,可以撑起几百磅的食物。我在Craigslist(在商务器具类挂牌出售)发现过这种架子。

2. Dressers. Drawers can hold more than clothes. Spruce up old dressers and buffets found on Craigslist with a bit of paint, and use them anywhere in the house.

2、食品橱柜。抽屉里不仅仅可以盛衣物。整理一下从Craigslist找到的带点漆面的旧橱柜和餐具架,这些可以在家里的任意地方使用。

3. Under the bed. The college dorm trick is to raise your bed on cinderblocks and add an extra-long bed skirt. It’s so much easier to put boxes underneath the bed this way. Some people don’t like having anything under the bed, but I’d rather store something under the bed than not have another place for it to go. What do you think?

3、床下。大学宿舍的杂物会让你的床象架在渣土堆上,并加长了床裙。在床下放些盒子是十分简单的。有些人不喜欢自己床下有任何东西,可比起没有地方存放东西来我宁愿在床下存放一些。你意下如何?

4. Hooks. Whether it’s a decorative hook, a plain nail in the wall, or a peg rail, hanging stuff on the wall helps. Most of our hooks are low on the wall so kids can reach them.

4、钩子。不论是不是很美观的钩子、即便是墙上的一个平头钉或木条对于将杂物挂在墙上也是很有帮助的。墙上大部分的钩子都不要很高以便孩子们可以够得到。

5. Hanging tote bags. Almost every room in our apartment has a tote bag hanging on the wall. I keep one hanging by my desk to hide loose papers in when my desk gets messy.

5、悬挂手提袋。几乎寓所内的所有房间都能有个可以在墙上悬挂手提袋的地方。我在我的桌子旁就一直挂着一个,当我桌面一团糟的时候,它们可以用来存放散开的文件纸。

6. Behind the door. I’m not really a fan of hanging organizers on doors. They make the door difficult to swing open and close, but they work.

6、门后。我真的不喜欢在门后悬挂整理袋。它在开关门时的摇晃使得开门不方便,但是它们确实起作用。

7. Maximum closet use. What do you need to add to make extra stuff fit in your closet? A double rod? Another shelf? Make full use of all three areas in a closet: the upper shelves, the space for hanging clothes, and the floor space.

7、最大化利用衣橱。想为你的衣橱安装更多合适的小东西你需要做什么呢?一对杆?还是额外的架子?充分利用你衣橱里的所有三个区域:顶层、挂衣服的空间和最底层。

Are you short on storage space or do you have enough? How have you developed storage space in your home?

你缺不缺少储物空间?在家里你是怎么开发自己的储存空间呢?
