As an award winning storage provider, the team at Store & Secure know a thing or two about genius storage ideas. And what better season is there than summer to get crafty! Summer is the ideal time to organise your home and garden due to the dry weather and holiday time, and to get your home ready for entertaining!

Cleanse your closet

1.For cluttered closets, make extra room for a new summer wardrobe by adding a ring pull to your hangers. This enables twice as many clothes in one wardrobe!


2. Add a rod to the inside of your wardrobe door to hang scarves, belts and hats


3. Rotate your seasonal wardrobe and place your winter clothes into vertical boxes with hangers so they don’t crease. Even better, store in our personal storage in Basingstoke until summer ends!


4. Cut up pool noodles and place them in boots to keep them upright in summer storage.

Get clever with garden storage

5. Grab a big basket for pool toys – these pesky things have a mind of their own!


6. Organise big garden tools with old PVC pipe

7. Repurpose an old fork end and hang small garden tools on the teeth

8. Screw an old coat hook above your garden hose and lock with a chain to keep the hose neat, or wrap and place in a big bucket


9. Passionate about biking? Transform an old dog house into a bike shed
