Cold Storage: Keep Winter Gear Well Organized

Winter in Wisconsin means snow and cold, and snow and cold creates a whole new set of home storage and organization headaches. Front entryways become filled with bulky coats and boots, and overstuffed drawers make it hard to find one glove – much less a matching pair. Even the recreational equipment that appears in winter, such a skis, sleds and ice skates, is super sized.

‘Tis the season for getting buried under an avalanche of extra gear, but with help from Cabinet City your mountain of mess can be transformed into a winter wonderland. Consider the following storage solutions and ideas:

  • Garage storage. Many items that aren’t used indoors – such as skis and skates – end up coming into the home, especially the basement, simply because there’s no other place to put them. Garage storage and shelving ensure that each recreational item has its place and saves on trips hauling bulky gear in and out of the house.
  • Mudrooms. If you have a dedicated space to transition when you come in from the cold, we can help ensure that space is designed and utilized to fit the specific storage needs and budget of your family.
  • Lockers. Even if you don’t have a dedicated mudroom, lockers are a great way to maximize even small closets and foyers. Installing separate lockers for each family member – with hooks, shelves and bins – provides the ultimate organizational tool to keep every hat, scarf, boot and coat in its proper place.

The best part about investing in functional and budget-friendly storage to get through the winter months? Enjoying a beautifully organized space that, in spring and summer, can be filled with beach towels, baseball gloves and garden gear.
