Summer is still going strong, but as the season’s final month approaches, it’s time to start thinking about where you’re going to store all of your summer clothes, sports gear, and beach paraphernalia. Here at Closet & Storage Concepts in Boston, we strive to help you lead an organized life all year round. Below are our tips for storing your summer gear during the offseason using closet storage systems, shelving, and more.
With pullout bins, you can put the space under your bed to good use. This is a great solution for storing summer clothes during the fall and winter. The bins can even be completely concealed under a bed skirt if so desired.
Alternatively, you may find that a barren window in your home could pair nicely with custom bay window seating and built-in pullout drawers surrounded by shelves. There are countless ways to include drawers in spaces that already exist in your home, especially in your closet. Make the most of your closet storage by including a stack of pullout drawers. These can be used to hide summer clothes away during the offseason and are perfect for rotating seasonal outfits.
Hanging racks are a storage solution that works exceptionally well with outdoor equipment. Custom racks can be made to stack your kayaks neatly and off the ground during the winter months. Use hanging bike racks in the garage to hang bicycles from the ceiling or on the wall to keep them out of the way. You may even utilize closet spaces in the bedroom by including a shoe hanging rack on the back of the door. This can keep your sporting shoes organized and within easy reach during any season.
Custom Closet Storage
Perhaps the most efficient way to store all of your summer gear is by building your storage solution around your possessions. Design a closet with stacked drawers, valet rods, and adjustable shelves in your bedroom. You can rotate your clothes for each season, keeping your off season clothes tucked away and out of sight in drawers.
By customizing your closet, you can make sure to include space for all of your summer knickknacks. Include a hosiery drawer for swimsuits and wall hooks for sun hats. Don’t feel limited to your bedroom! A custom closet will be very useful in the entryway or mudroom for storing pool toys, beach towels, and sandals.
