How to Get Creative with your Home Storage Needs


Demand for storage solutions that make sense, are affordable and fit into your existing home decor, continues to rise. More storage options means a less cluttered life, reduced stress and a higher resale value for your property.

And the right storage options are all about efficiency, functionality and compatibility with your existing lifestyle. We believe a Cook shed checks every one of those boxes and more!

Read on to learn more about 3 growing home storage trends and why a Cook Portable Warehouse would match each one!

Think about versatility and adaptability

With storage options, it’s important to choose items that not only match your home’s existing decor but fit into your family’s lifestyle. One of the newest trends in homes is having more specialized storage.

This means choosing a storage solution that works for your present needs and can grow, adapt or change in the future. For example, modular storage pieces like cubbies that would work well in kitchens, kid’s rooms or playrooms. These are perfect for growing kids and their changing needs.

Think about this in terms of the different size buildings that Cook Portable Warehouses offers. If a customer outgrows a certain size shed, they can use our Trade-Up program to upgrade to a larger option.

Combine utility and decor

Homeowners need storage solutions that are functional but also attractive. Just because something holds seasonal supplies that doesn’t mean it should have a prominent place right in the middle of your living room.

There are tons of well-designed and aesthetically appealing options that incorporate storage into the overall design. Many modern and antique furniture pieces provide places for hidden storage like underneath drawers or stackable bins.

A Cook building showcases this same idea. It provides tons of helpful storage space in a convenient location but doesn’t clash with your existing yard style and structure. Our attractive buildings come in a variety of colors for the siding and shingles to match any and every home!

Maximize space with closets and pantries

Get creative with your storage solutions and think outside the box. If you have a room that you don’t know what to do with, convert it into a walk-in closet to keep all your clothes in one place year round.

Another area that is getting tweaked by some creative homeowners are kitchens. Super pantries are growing in popularity and represent an area for food storage, appliance storage and prep space. This creative solution aims to reduce clutter and provide more usable space in the kitchen.

Having more space is the best way to keep your stuff organized, clean and tidy. Another way to maximize the room you have (and make sure you have enough room of your stuff) is investing in a Cook warehouse. With more room outside in your shed, you will have more flexibility inside to customize your storage solutions.
