For nearly maintenance-free storage units, vinyl is the preferred siding. Vinyl lacks the visual appeal of wood, but if you own a house with vinyl siding, why not select a storage unit that is also sided with vinyl? However, vinyl will get dirty over time, making it even less attractive. Mold is often the culprit. Take into account the maintenance required to clean the vinyl periodically.
Jars For Loose Items - Not only does it look great, but jars attached to the bottom end of shelving is the perfect way to store small or loose items. Never lose a nail or screw again! Simply pick a jar size you like, baby food jars work great here, and screw the lid to the bottom end of a shelf or cabinet. Unscrew the jar to add items. It's as simple as that. You can utilize these anywhere loose items are present. Just make sure each jar has a specific purpose and not mixed in with other items.
