Finished & Unfinished Basement Storage Ideas

Moisture-Proof Long-Term Storage

It is important that the items in your basement remain protected while in storage. Whether they are seasonal or long-term storage items, you should plan to secure them in a designated space in your basement. Use air-tight, moisture-proof containers to keep your belongings in the basement. If you have any water damage issues then add a dehumidifier so that everything stays dry and mold-free!

Utilize Wall & Ceiling Space

Your basement can serve as a great location for storing all sorts of items. We recommend using shelving units and hooks to keep your things neat against the walls, or you could simply use built-in spaces that are already available in some homes! Regardless of which option suits best what’s being stored down there (or up), make sure everything has its place so it doesn’t get lost among other clutter when looking around after moving furniture back. 

Install a Clothing Rack

When it comes to storing your winter clothes, make sure you have enough space. We recommend finding a good spot for all of your extra apparel and accessories such as jackets or snowsuits that take up so much room in the closets! Hanging them keeps items wrinkle-free while staying in mint condition so they are ready for use. If your basement space is large enough, invest in a clothing rack to hang extra clothing items. These are very handy and can assist you in organizing clothing items that are out of season. 

Section Off the Room

Many use their basements for both entertainment and storage so clutter can easily accumulate over time. We recommend separating items that are meant for storage so they do not get in the way of your furniture and living space. Closets, storage containers, and boxes are great ways to store some of these extra items. Once they have been consolidated, place them in designated areas of the room. If you need more separation we recommend using the following items:
