How many storage closets do I need in my house?

5 years ago

We are doing a major remodel and I've read several times how important it is to have enough storage in a home. All of the bedrooms will have decent size closets, but how many "other" closets or storage areas do I need in a home? Our new garage is actually smaller than our existing garage, so we won't have the same attic space for all of those random items that don't have a home. Yes, I'll be getting rid of things before moving, but am wondering if there is a rule of thumb about how much storage space a home should have outside of bedroom closets. Thanks so much!
