Storage always seems to be an issue in horse barns – it seems that no matter how much storage a barn offers, you always need more! Here are some great ways that you can maximize the amount of indoor storage offered by your barn.
Install Lockers and Closets
Installing a number of lockers and closets in your barn can instantly maximize the storage that you have available. Closets and lockers are advantageous because they can be a great way to keep items both organized and out of sight for a cleaner appearance. Consider installing closets so that you can utilize wasted space in your barn – closets which access the areas under stairwells or unused corners can add storage space without requiring much construction.
Use a Rotating Tack Room Door
For a unique storage option, consider installing a rotating tack room door. A rotating door allows you to store tack on the inner side of the door, rotating the door around into the barn aisle so that you can easily access tack when you need it. This unique setup is convenient and allows for a clean barn aisle appearance when the door is rotated closed.
Install Shelves Up High
The upper portions of barn walls often have wasted space. For instance, the space above your upper saddle racks in your tack room probably consists of bare wall. Installing shelves or storage cubes up high provides a place to store those items that you rarely use, but which you still need to keep in your barn.
Use the Ultimate Tack System
The tack room is one of the most important storage spaces in your barn, and it’s often one of the most unorganized. The Ultimate Tack System is a super easy way to instantly organize your tack room, meaning that you can maximize the amount of storage that your tack room offers. With the Ultimate Tack System, you can easily find what you’re looking for, saving you time and energy.
Use All of Your Spaces
Your barn offers many spaces for storage that can be easily overlooked. Consider getting hanging baskets or blanket bars to utilize the front of your stall doors. You might also include baskets or other storage options in your grooming stall and wash bay area.
