Summer is running out:it's time to prepare for the season when warm, cozy, voluminous things will dominate in the house. One smart way to save space is to keep summer clothes and accessories out of the way. But how do you find a place in a small apartment? Read in our article The change of seasons is the time when you can rearrange your way of life. It's a great time to get a warm blanket and light scented candles, update your home workplace and schoolchildren's corner, set new goals and objectives for the fall. And in order for all this to find a place in life, it is worth taking away summer hats and sports equipment, dresses and swimwear, sandals and woven bags. But how to find a place for them? Very simple. 1. Putting away in the closet If there is no space inside - put things on the closet in convenient baskets or boxes. Summer clothes usually take up less space than winter clothes - roll them up. Set aside a compartment for things out of season, if there is such an opportunity, and if not, it seems like it's time to get rid of the excess. Advice: vacuum bags reduce the storage volume several times. And also - they protect against moths, mold, odors and dust. And they certainly cost less than a new wardrobe. 2. On the wall There are a million ways.You can also combine the decor with storage: hang the most spectacular summer hats on the hooks. You can shoot at any time if summer suddenly returns. Such an installation attracts attention and reminds of the warmth even on cold days. 3.An attic or an attic If you cannot allocate a separate living room, then here it is, an excellent place to store things that are not relevant at the moment. Of course, if you do not forget about the need to ventilate the attic and maintain a comfortable temperature regime, clothes do not tolerate temperature and humidity changes poorly. The features of the configuration of the room will have to be beaten. Barbells with hangers are perfect for sloping walls. And behind them, in the corners, you can store shoes. 4.Mezzanine If you do not have an attic, but the ceilings are high, the upstairs space should be used for storage. Open mezzanines are a stylistically great option for a loft. Beautiful summer shoes can even be displayed here as an element of interior decor.

Buy them as a bench or bedside table and is still empty inside? It's time to fill one of the first pieces of furniture known in ancient Egypt with neatly folded items from the summer wardrobe. Advice: do not put dirty clothes away for long-term storage. Any most inconspicuous stain, which is easy to deal with now, eats into the fabric tightly in a few months. 6.Under the bed Many modern bed models are already equipped with built-in storage boxes. Or you can take care of it yourself - not to be lost to such a valuable place. Summer shoes fit perfectly here - and access to them is very easy. Tip: When removing sandals and shoes, inspect each pair - are heels needed, are there any cracks and dirt? Stuff closed-toed shoes with newspapers to keep them in shape during the winter. 7.Hallway You can also find a corner in the hallway if your autumn-winter wardrobe is balanced. Great idea: storage in suitcases. Looks great, besides, it fits inside with the right approach a lot. And sports equipment for summer games in the open air can serve as a kind of interior decoration. Tip: more clothes will fit in a suitcase if you fold them not in piles, but in rollers. At the bottom - denser and voluminous things, jeans and trousers. Above them are T-shirts and light dresses. eight.On the loggia, the Loggia seems to be the best place to store everything in the world, but this is not entirely true. If the room is not insulated, it is better not to store summer clothes there, because low temperatures will reduce the durability of light fabrics. For a bicycle, this would seem to be the ideal area. But due to changes in humidity, parts can be damaged: chains and bearings. So take care of the thermal insulation of the balcony - and even arrange a whole here. nine.Behind the curtain Taking into account the requirements for temperature and humidity, the ideal place to store summer clothes and belongings is a well-ventilated, warm and bright room, such as your bedroom. And if you don't want to see sundresses and longingly remember the summer, hide them behind a curtain in any form: rolled up and folded into boxes and containers or hanging freely on the wall. 10.In the floor The ingenious idea of space rationalization is to arrange storage space literally in the floor. It is especially convenient to use steps. The owners of this tiny wardrobe with a built-in staircase that serves as a storage room also provided the lighting that goes off when you step on the button with your foot - very prudently. Tip: If you are storing things where air is difficult to access, place a sachet of dried lavender or rosemary petals in the box to keep them from smelling musty.
