Finding the best attic storage containers

Posted by Betty Bohanan on


When we think about storage containers for your attic, most of us think about the normal paper box that you find everywhere. These boxes are really cheap and can be thrown away after use, but…are these boxes really the best option you want for storing stuff in containers in your attic?  Here is how you can find the best possible attic storage containers for everyone.



The one thing boxes are NOT is durable. Boxes do not stay in great shape for a long time, and can become fragile and tear very easily. If you are really looking for the best storage containers for your attic, the first thing that you should look for is a container that is durable.

Your container needs to last for years and years, without breaking or tearing. It needs to keep your stuff in perfect form, and needs to keep your attic clean and organized. The one thing that boxes do is make an attic even more cluttered and unorganized, and they eventually wear down.

Another important aspect of the best attic storage container is that it should preferably be see-through…where you can actually see what is inside the container. You are not using the attic and the stuff that is stored in the attic very often, and you will most-likely forget what you have in it.  Having containers you can see through, will allow you to see the contents of the items you are looking for a lot easier.  This will make searching for something faster and you will have a more organized attic storage space.





Your attic storage containers should have a place where you can label the container to know exactly what is in the container…even if you are using see-through containers. Sometimes you are storing small things that you cannot see from the outside, and having a label on the container will make finding your stuff easier.

Do not put labels on the top lid of the containers.  You will not always be able to see what is written on the top of the container because of stacking, and it can be confusing.  Having labels on the side of the containers (facing forward) is the best way to label them to make sure that you know where to find everything.




Heat resistance

It is also very important to make sure that the containers that you buy for your attic storage space are heat resistant. If you don’t have the correct insulation and ventilation in your attic, it can get very hot. The heat can damage the containers as well as the stuff stored in the container. Make sure that the containers you are going to use can withstand lots of heat.




To make sure that your attic storage space is organized and neat, you need to make sure you use the correct storage containers.  Paper boxes are out of the question. You will have too many problems using them in your attic. Finding the best storage containers for your attic space can be made easy if you know what to look for in your search.
