3 ways to make space for your growing collection

Love buying new items as an add-on to your personal collection of toys, sneakers or bags? We understand the joy and excitement of scoring that new limited edition collectible. But what about the lack of space? Good news, you don’t have to let the issue of storage hinder your growing collection.

  1. Make use of your wall space

Used up most of the space on the floor? Don’t worry, you can always build and install some shelves on the walls at home. With shelves, you’ll not only enjoy extra space to showcase your personal collection, but they also serve as a great centerpiece at home.

Opt for small placeholders/platform for your small toy figurines to stand on or a long shelve across your wall to hold bigger collectibles. You can also explore installing shelves along the perimeter of your home wall. Use reference sites like Pinterest or Instagram to explore more ideas.

It is important to take note of the weight and height of your toy figurines and personal collection too so that you can build a sturdy display. If you are planning to place your toys and sneakers collection on shelves, make sure that your shelves are installed in an area with no direct sunlight as it might affect the colours on the sneakers or toys in the long run.

  1. Use racks

The great thing about racks is the flexibility of choosing the number of layers you want. In cases where your personal collection includes loads of sneakers, toys or bags, this is a good option as you will be able to see all of your personal collection at one glance. This might not be the prettiest storage option, but it allows collectors to have more space when their prized collectibles are stacked nicely on the racks. With racks, you will also enjoy a more organised living space without the clutter. They are easy to build, affordable, super lightweight and durable. You will also be in control of how many sneakers or bags go on each shelve on the rack.
