Tips To Install The Basement Storage Cabinets

Unfinished Basement Storage Ideas

Basement Storage Cabinets – If you are not careful, a basement can quickly become a dumping ground for items that you will organize in the future. Without basement storage cabinets, clutter can accumulate and make the space inefficient and messy. If you buy storage cabinets or build them yourself, keep in mind your organization goals, the function of the room and the security of your possessions.

Unlike storage cabinets in the rest of your home, those in your basement must be water resistant and large enough to store plastic containers. Even if you do not live near a body of water or do not experience flooding in your geographic area, you may still experience flooding caused by heavy rain, a broken sump pump or leaking pipe. Stainless steel basement cabinets are less likely to experience deformations, Another good option is buying or making wooden shelves made from pressure treated wood and CDX plywood. An additional alternative may include the installation of basement cabinets that hang from the floor joists because the cabinets do not touch the basement floor.

Before installing cabinets in your basement, you must repair the damage from water and mold. Failure to do so can shorten the life of any cabinet to install since mold can spread to the storage unit. If the room is humid, buy a dehumidifier to help control the humidity level in the room and lengthen the life of the basement closet and its contents.
