One of the biggest challenges to living in a small space is dealing with your stuff. Smaller homes and apartments mean everything has to fit somewhere, but it’s hard to find room for everything you need. If you’re living in a small home with kids, chances are you have even more stuff than other families do — toys, strollers, high chairs, and more. Here are four tips for maximizing family car storage:

Add a roof rack

If you have a roof rack, you can use it to carry anything that won’t fit in your car. This is especially useful when you’re going on long trips and need something like a kayak or surfboard to help pass the time. The same goes for bikes; if your family has bikes, adding a roof rack will give them somewhere safe to keep them during transportation.

Roof boxes are another great way to add storage space to your vehicle. They mount onto the roof of your car but provide plenty of extra room inside the vehicle itself. You can fill these boxes with things that would normally be stored in other areas such as clothing bags and sleeping bags – basically anything soft enough not to damage any fragile objects inside.

Consider storage drawers

Storage drawers are a great way to keep items organized in the car. For example, if you have a family Toyota Landcruiser, you can use Landcruiser storage drawers for storing your kids’ toys and clothes. The same goes for adults who want to keep their things organized while traveling.

Storage drawers can also be used as storage solutions in your home or office. If you have a bedroom dresser that sits on top of a boxspring mattress, then adding some storage drawers will allow you to store many more items than before.

Create storage boxes

Using a box is recommended. A simple cardboard box can be used to store items in the car, especially if you already have one lying around. If not, then consider getting one at your local supermarket or hardware store. You can write on it with a marker to make it easy for everyone to identify what’s inside, or even use this opportunity to teach children how to write their names.

In addition, a plastic container or metal container is also a great choice. If you want something more durable than cardboard, try using any kind of plastic or metal container available at home (or anywhere else). Just drill some holes and attach them onto the side of your vehicle using screws, bolts, and nuts so that they’re secure enough not to fall off when driving along rough roads!

Use a cargo barrier

Cargo barriers are great for protecting your car’s interior from damage. They are easy to install and can be used on the backseat, in the trunk, or anywhere else you’d like them. Cargo barriers come in different colors and sizes so you can find one that suits your needs best. The tough material they’re made of makes it easy for you to clean up any spills or messes that might occur while transporting items around with you inside the vehicle.


Getting the most out of your family car storage space can be a challenge, but with these helpful tips, you can make sure that your car is always ready for the next adventure.
