3 Tips for Organizing Your Attic, Rochester, New York

The attic is a common place for home storage. Everything you don’t use but still want to keep may end up in this space, which is why it may become cluttered over time. Since this room is frequently out of sight, it may be tempting to leave it messy, but organization will create more space and prevent belongings from getting lost or damaged. Below are some ideas for efficiently arranging your attic.

3 Steps for Organizing an Attic

1. Remove Everything First

It might seem like a daunting task, but the first step to organizing any space is taking everything out. You can then assess what you have and decide what to keep. In their attics, many people have belongings they don’t use, including old sports equipment and furniture. Decide what you will still utilize or what holds sentimental value. All other items should be discarded, sold, or donated to free up space.

2. Repair Damage & Add Storage Accessories

Have damaged floorboards, walls, and insulation repaired, then ensure you have sufficient lighting. If you’re storing clothes in this space, buy a clothing rack to keep pieces neat. If the walls have studs, shelving is also very useful for organized home storage.

3. Place Everything in Containers

Now that you’re left with only wanted belongings and an efficient space, set up the area so you can find everything again in the future. You can do this by separating possessions into categories like sports gear, holiday decor, clothing, and family heirlooms. Next, pack everything into suitable containers. Use clear tubs for easy identification, and airtight bins for paperwork, electronics, and other materials that need to be protected from moisture and dust. Finally, label all the bins.
