Square footage is in large part how we measure the value of a living space, so it stands to reason that preserving said space is a good idea whenever possible – and using storage racks is a clever, stylish way to do it.

Storage racks have an advantage over many other storage methods because it gets your stuff up off the floor, and keeping that floor (or counter) space free is what really counts. Plus, racks come in all shapes, sizes and styles, so you’ve got a lot of flexibility on how and where you can use them.

For example:

Pot Racks

It’s no wonder pot racks are first on the list. They’re easy to install, look great and help save a ton of space in the kitchen.

A question that frequently surfaces is whether a pot rack begets a kitchen island, which arguably just takes up more space. The answer: not necessarily. There are all kinds of wall-mounted pot racks, and even a hanging rack can be mounted under cabinetry or in a kitchen sill.

Wine Racks  

Wine racks are great space-savers in any from, but wall-mounted designs really deliver a lot of bang for the buck by creating more counter and cabinet space.

But, counter racks are great, too, especially when more impressive wine collections demand a variety of storage options.

Quilt Racks

Most quilt racks take up a little floor space, but they can nevertheless help keep your blankets handy yet organized. This makes them especially useful during winter, when you always need a quilt nearby, but hate leaving them strewn about the house.

Bike Racks

A bike rack is a must for city-dwelling cyclists, but can even help save space in the garage for suburban bicycle owners as well. Bikes are ungainly, awkward things that take up a lot of room, but there are bike racks of all kinds that can help.

There are even bike hoists (at right) so you can hang them from the ceiling!

So, the next time you’re thinking of how you can increase your square footage, don’t forget about getting things up and out of the way with storage racks.

The Boston Loft Furnishings "Bluffdale" wall-mounted wine rack can be hung horizontally or vertically to accommodate most any space.
