Today’s homeowners, on average, can be expected to stay in the same house for 10-13 years – a significant increase compared to the period prior to the housing downturn in 2008 when the average stay was 6-9 years. As a result, our homes reflect our personalities more than ever. In fact, storage trends are falling right in line with lifestyle trends and preferences.
While often overlooked, storage can be one of the most crucial elements to a happy, healthy, and organized living or work space. But all too often, storage is used in homes and offices to conceal the piles of clutter that don’t have a designated “place”.

A study conducted by real estate website Zillow.com says closets have been the number two most-requested amenity since 2013.
