Finished & Unfinished Basement Storage Ideas

Moisture-Proof Long-Term Storage

If you are using your basement as seasonal or long-term storage, you need to make sure your items are well-protected. Use air-tight, moisture-proof containers to store your belongings in. This will prevent mold and other damage. Add a dehumidifier to your basement in case there is water damage. If your basement develops any water issues, you will be prepared and your items will be safe. 

Utilize Wall & Ceiling Space

Your basement may be used for storage and as an area to hangout. We recommend using shelving units and hooks to keep items clear of the walking space. Place excess tools, toys, linens, bikes, and other items neatly along the wall. Search for affordable shelving options that can hold the weight of your items for extended periods of time. Built-in shelving is another option to explore as well. Depending on the height of your ceiling, you can store other items on your basement ceilings. 

Install a Clothing Rack

During the year, seasons will change and so will your wardrobe. We suggest finding designated spots for your winter jackets, snowsuits, fancy attire, and other seasonal clothing items that take up too much space in your closets. Hanging your items will keep them wrinkle-free and in good condition when you are ready to use them again. Clothing racks are great for storing these extra items. Clothing racks come in different sizes so we suggest purchasing one that can fit all of your extra clothes. Once the clothes are hung, place the clothing rack in a corner of the room. 

Section Off the Room

If you use your basement for both entertainment and storage, we recommend separating the storage items from your living space area. Place storage items in the closet or in specific areas in the room. Storage containers should be stacked and tucked away in a corner of the room. If you still need to create more separation we recommend the following items:
