Best ways to upgrade your storage space this winter

There’s no if’s, ands or buts about it — it’s essential to have storage space in your property. Storage space is useful as it allows you to keep things organised and put away things that aren’t in use, so that your home remains a calm space. Without ample storage space, things can quickly become chaotic, cluttered, and look messy.

As most of us spend much more time indoors during winter, it’s a good time to plan out, and invest in, an upgrade for your storage space.

Below, we’ve compiled a list of suggestions on how you can easily create more storage space at your property over the coming months.


A garage is a great option for storage space, especially if you own a car – as so many of us do. It’s the perfect place to keep your car during the wintertime so you don’t have to dig it out of the snow or defrost it for as long; which can be a nuisance when you’re trying to get to work on time!

It’s also fantastic as a place to store snow equipment or hide Christmas presents from loved ones. And if you have a garage, you can always have the option for a big freezer for added food space! There’s a range of options when it comes to garage upgrade, including Quonset Garage Kits and more!

Small hut

A small storage hut in your garden is another option for adding extra space to your property. Storage huts are great for every season and offer owners a place to store garden essentials, like lawn mowers, rakes and more. They can also add value to your property, so if you’re ever looking to sell you know you’ve made the right investment!

Storage huts come in a range of sizes and styles, and are a perfect addition to any garden. They can help to add atmosphere to a space too, so worth looking into what’s available to suit your taste and the look you want to create for your garden space.

Tidying out the loft

It’s easy to put things up in the loft and just simply forgetting about them. But tidying out and organising the loft can help you to add additional space and is great for peace-of-mind knowing exactly what you have. A tip is to create an inventory list to what actually is in the loft, and make sure to label any boxes full of items too. 


Clutter can pile up over time. The winter months are a good time to go through what you have, what you want to keep, what do you want to donate to charity and what can go out with the trash.

It’s worth putting a plan together of how you want to declutter to keep you from getting overwhelmed and go room by room. While it can be difficult to throw out some items, it’s worth thinking of how much better you’ll feel in a much more organised space. Make sure to create labels if you’re putting anything away in storage. And if possible, donate to charities items that may be useful if you can. Or if you want to make a bit of extra cash to make up for an expensive Christmas, try selling some of your items on sites like eBay, Facebook Marketplace or Vinted.

And it’s a great way to get prepared for a spring clean!
