Creative Ways to Use Your Unused Spaces

Let’s face it, there’s a lot more that could be optimized within almost every room of our homes. Of course, the need for better organization only hits you while putting food away in the pantry or when you are fussing with putting away towels in the bathroom. This is an especially common struggle for those with older h0omes. Older homes tend to have been built with awkward or small built-in storage and shelves. 

With some creative thinking and planning with our designers, we can help craft perfect solutions for every room of your home. At Harkraft, we offer storage and shelving solutions that are perfect for every room in the house. 

Here are some organizational tips that may be able to help with coming up with ways to use your unused spaces.

Garages & Workspaces

Keep your garage organized with custom storage from Harkraft. We offer durable shelving, cabinets, and workbenches that make it easy to track and store every item in your garage – making everyday maintenance and tasks simple.

Wall Storage

If you mount hooks, brackets, and other hardware only on studs, you’re wasting good opportunities for garage wall ideas. With the help of professionals, you can begin the perfect cabinet and shelving solutions for this underused space in the garage to be customized to exactly what you need.

High-reaching Cabinets

If all of the stuff in your garage is easy to grab within reach, you’re probably missing out on a lot of storage space opportunities. These high spaces may not be the perfect sport for frequently used tools, but they are perfect for long-term storage.

The use of deep shelving or laminated wood cabinets can hold tons of seasonal materials such as holiday decorations or camping gear.


You can begin to transform the unused spaces in your bedroom with design and creativity. We offer tailored shelving, custom cabinets, and mirrors with the flexibility to match almost any home layout. These are some ideas to help make more storage space out of these unused corners of the room.

Customized Wardrobe

Having a built-in wardrobe can help maximize every inch within your bedroom space. The more that can be stored away behind a well-crafted wall, the more the room shows off its true cozy aesthetic. This is the perfect way to make your wardrobe doors a statement feature in the room.

Accented Shelving

The use of dark, laminated cabinets that are offered in a variety of styles and finishes can really bring out some accent coloring to your comfy space. Not only will these shelves be pleasing to the eye, but they are perfect for placing any plants, candles, books, or photos that you want to have surrounding the space.

Laundry Spaces

You need optimal organization in the laundry area of your house. There is a lot that happens in here – it could be combined with a mudroom or entryway, there may need to be systems in place for laundry coming in and laundry going out, there could be a need for space to iron. 

It’s important to get creative in here. It’s typically a smaller space in the home but a lot goes on here. It’s important to consider all of the storage and shelving options that are available for your unique space in order to create some custom solutions that will make your unused laundry spaces become much more organized.

Mount Dryer Racks to the Wall

Instead of using up so much of the precious floor space that you have in this room, it’s important to consider what aspects of your daily use can be functioned off of the wall and bring more ease to the area. When they are not in use, you can simply fold them up and put them away so that they will not get in the way of washing laundry.

Space-Saving Storage

With a custom design of drawers, shelves, and wire racks – you can create the perfect storage solutions for this small area. A mix of drawers and pull-out shelves can be used to store laundry products, keep hampers out of the way, and properly be able to fold clean clothes.
