CAMBRIDGE — Every homeowner has dealt with the issue of space and, in particular, not having enough of it. As spring storage woes arise, many homeowners want to find new options to help declutter their spaces.
Chris Unklesbay of Orme Hardware in Cambridge said the company offers a variety of storage options for indoor and outdoor needs. One of Cambridge’s oldest businesses, the hardware company began operation in 1869. With Ohio locations in Cambridge, Berlin, Arcanum, Newark, Cadiz, New Concord and Newcomerstown, the company is continuing its “You can find it at Orme’s” philosophy today.
“At Orme’s, we can help with organizing inside and out,” Unklesbay said. “From underbed storage totes that conveniently roll, to storage sheds in all shapes and sizes, we can help you choose the best options and products.”
For interior storage, there are many types of totes and storage containers available. Varying in size, many can stack, be stored under a bed, and come in multiple colors.
Unklesbay added that for closet and pantry organization, simple and stackable cube shelving can be the easiest and most efficient way to organize even the most cluttered space. These easy to build shelves come in many colors and finishes.
Space Saver Bags have grown in popularity over the past few years regarding many home solutions, ranging from clothing storage to packing for trips. Orme also offers several options for clothing storage, such as the Easy Track Deluxe Closet system, for wardrobe organization.
“If smaller solutions are being sought, we carry a variety of drawer organizers that keep kitchen drawers to desk spaces tidy and neat,” he said. “Blanket bags and vacuum sealed Space Bags offer an amazing convenience for storing winter blankets and clothing.”
Many homeowners may also find themselves in need of storage outside their home for tools, outdoor appliances and more.
For an outdoor space, Orme offers many sheds and storage closets. From vinyl to metal to wood, staff can help decide what the best options would be. For garden tools and small storage, smaller, more convenient closet sheds would provide an efficient option.
For lawn mowers and larger equipment, simple to build sheds provide safe and secure storage options. At Orme, these sheds come in many different styles to fit the taste of the homeowner.
Unklesbay added some of the best storage solutions don’t have to be in the form of sheds or shelving. Wall hanging Command strips can allow for hallways and bedrooms to get organized by hanging coats, hats and even keys up and out of the way.
If the garage needs a decluttering touch up, Orme carries screw-in hooks to hang ladders, wheelbarrows, power equipment and much more.
