Clever Storage Ideas for your Mobile Home Doesn’t have to be Ugly
There are storage boxes available in every shape and size imaginable but the problem is finding a place to put the storage boxes. Where do you put the boxes after you fill them up?
If you’re like this blogger, you create a cute outdoor seating arrangement from the plain plastic storage boxes you can buy at Dollar General for $7.50 a piece.
If you’re this homeowner, you cover the storage box with cute fabric and add wooden fence post caps as feet to make it a sight for sore eyes:

Under the Bed Storage
One of the best clever storage ideas for your mobile home is to use containers under your bed. You can buy sliding containers or make them yourself from old dresser drawers.
The clear containers can work as well as an old dresser drawer. All you do is attach the wheels and a handle. See how here.

If your bed is too low you can buy risers to create additional storage space and make your bed easier to get in and out. These risers can add some serious storage space under your bed (click here for our affiliate link to Amazon):
Regardless of the room, adding shelves will help you keep things organized and make the most of the limited space you have.
Complete closet shelving systems, like the popular white wire type, are a great way to expand your storage space. You can use several configurations to create better storage in pantries and closets of all sizes.
Adding hooks under a wood shelf or to a wall has always been a popular and easy storage solution. Keys have called a hook by the front door home for decades.
Get creative with these cute fork hooks we found on Pinterest:
Ikea’s bar and S-hook storage system has been a huge hit in the last few years. They’ve created a complete system that includes boxes, cups, and even wire shelves that hang from bars via S-hooks.
Exterior Storage Ideas
Clever storage ideas for your mobile home can involve the exterior of your home, too. Storage sheds and the space under your mobile home are great ways to store some items.
The simplest idea is often the best one, and purchasing additional storage space by installing an exterior shed onto your property may be the best answer for you. Smaller pre-built metal buildings are more affordable than one might think. A storage shed is a better option than monthly rental storage because it’s right outside your home, and you only have to pay for it once.
Under the Home
We keep our holiday decorations and yard tools under our porch for easy access. Skirting for mobile homes must have a door or hatch that allows for easy access and as long as the path isn’t obstructed you can use the extra space for storage. This storage idea is best for outdoor items and storage boxes that are airtight and waterproof.
