Having a log cabin can be a lot of fun, but it can also bring a lot of clutter. You will bring a lot of stuff to your log cabin, but it doesn’t necessarily have all the storage that your regular house has. This can make the log cabin very cluttered, which isn’t exactly relaxing. So, how do you manage to create more storage in your log cabin?

Get rid of all the stuff you don’t need

When you have an overload of stuff the most obvious step to take is throwing away all the stuff that you don’t need. If you haven’t used something in the past year then the chances are slim you’ll ever use it again. I understand it can be hard to throw stuff out, but keep your end goal of a clutter-free log cabin in mind.

Find unused spaces

Your log cabin probably has some unused spaces which would be perfect for storage. How about the attic? Is there room in the basement? Is there space below the stairs? You can put a small storage unit or even hang up some shelves in these spaces to create more storage space. It’s little effort but it can make the biggest difference.

Door storage

If the storage problem is becoming dramatic then you can opt for those storage units you can hang on the door. You have plenty of extra storage space once you hang a couple of these in your log cabin. It might not be the prettiest option but it definitely works and will create room for a lot more stuff to be saved. Everyone could have their own door storage unit on the inside of their rooms’ door, this way it is out of sight as well.

Make better use of your closets

Your log cabin may not have plenty of closets, but you have to make the most out of the closets you do have. You can put up some shelving, drawers or an entire storage system to make the space you have more efficient. Especially higher closets can be used more efficiently by using hanging storage units.

Build a storage shed

Storage sheds are a great way to get extra storage.  Building a log shed that matches your home may be cost prohibitive, but TruLog™ Steel Siding will give your outbuildings that great log home look with much lower maintenance and a more economical cost.

It can be hard to fit all of your stuff into one log cabin, but it’s definitely not impossible. You just need to be a little creative and let go of some unused stuff to make it all fit perfectly. When you make the most of your space and purchase some efficient storage units then you will be alright.
