Storage Ideas for Attics & How to Preserve Your Items
Perfect ways to keep your family treasures intact with storage ideas for attics
What’s in your attic? Seriously, what’s up there? Family heirlooms? Holiday decorations? Outgrown toys and dusty memories? Do you have a long-lost work of art hiding under your trusses? Wouldn’t that be something!
We have all daydreamed about the idea of coming across some treasure hidden away in our attic or basement.
Well, just in case, here are a few storage ideas for attics to help keep your potential treasures safe!
First, be sure you have added your DIY Attic Dek® panels so that you can easily access your stored items.
Second, make sure what you’re storing in the attic can safely live up there, potentially for a while:
Holiday decorations that can be safely stored: faux trees, glass bulbs, your menorah, that blow up snow globe, plastic eggs, and plastic jack-o-lanterns
How about that snow sled, snowshoes, pail and shovel, and your metal flagpole? Yes, those are fine. But you may want to skip placing the flags in the attic and we will tell you why below.
Wakeboard, flowerpots, and wind chimes…sure thing.
Luggage and travel trunks are fine if they are not made of fabric. Most mirrors, silver, glass, and dishware would be safe too.
