BY Rebecca | 4 August, 2016 | no comments

It’s time to take steps to organize and declutter your attic. Do you have enough time in your schedule to do this extra task of properly managing your attic? If yes, you would definitely require knowing certain ideas and strategies that you may use in order to prep up your attic without wasting too much time. What exactly do you see when you open up your attic? Crates, bags, clothes, luggage, bags, furniture, coolers and toys, is that all that you see? All these aforementioned items might have been hidden within the attic as you had very little space to keep them in your room. If you’re looking forward to organizing your attic, here are some steps to take.

Organizing your attic will always start off with the daunting task of cleaning out

You might think about organizing your attic as a New Year Resolution but such resolutions and promises are rather made to be broken. If your attic has become nothing more than a pile of unwanted items which you have been stacking inside it for a long time now, it’s high time you clean up all the mess. The method of sliding puzzle moves things when you search for something and this often destroys whatever cleanup you have started with.

When it comes to cleaning up your attic, you need to make some big decisions about what to throw away and what to keep. Unless there is something really prized, there’s no need of keeping it. Eliminating all these things will make space for everything else.

Making space in your attic – The next big step

Does your attic have few areas with flooring? If there is flooring of some sort, it will be easier for you to walk n such areas. Such square panels are usually designed to fit in between the interlock at the edges and the joists. Add this kind of flooring panels to the entire attic and you wouldn’t require a contractor to install them. Having enough storage units is important as they allow you to stack up shelves and boxes on each other.

Create zones for storing items as this is a vital part of attic organization

Even when everything is kept neatly, trying to locate what you need can take longer time if there is no particular method of storing things. Therefore it is vital for you to create storage zones which help you keep your things in a systematic order. If you create a hanging bar, you can hang all those clothes which you don’t wear in a particular season and keep them packed in boxes. With most clothing off the floor, you will have more room for coats, boxed shoes, purses, seasonal accessories and hats.

If you have got a roof window in your attic, you will get enough light in the attic to reorganize things. Make sure you attach ladders to reach out of the attic whenever you feel like. Follow the above mentioned tips to arrange your attic.
