Default Storing Homebrew Equipment

Where do you all store your brewing equipment? Just looking for creative ideas to help me find a place for all my stuff. SWMBO wont be happy for long if it continues to take up random space in the kitchen and garage.

I keep all mine in a junk armour...free standing closet in the basement. My burner stays outside in the garage. Brewday is a bit of a pain as much of the gear gets hauled up and outside, but the garage is too small to keep it all in. Kyle

Here's a shot of my old printer stand re-purposed as a fermenter stand/storage unit;

Empty bottles in the boxes in the corner. I've since started puting full bottles in boxes upstairs where it's more evenly warmer.

We have a spare bedroom with a closet that's mine and it's stored there.

What I also do is store my wash only stuff (kettle, lid, mash paddle, thermometer) in one area and then store my wash and sanitize stuff together. Since I dont' have burners or things of that sort it's easier.

At my brother's we stash everything under the basement stairs, out of sight out of mind.

I have way more equipment than any of the pictures here. I have a couple of shelving racks full of various equipment and whatnot, and the brew kettle, pump, filter, and associated hoses stay on my makeshift brewstand which is actually a portable scaffold.

Thanks for the ideas guys. Definitely will help me figure out what I am going to do. Probably will be on Craigslist looking when I get back from vacation.

Buckets, pots and burner on shelves in the garage, buckets and pots covered with upside down bags to keep 'em clean and dust free. All the miscellaneous stuff in a couple of clear Rubbermaid totes. One is a long shallow one to keep siphons, thiefs, cleaning brushes, spoons, paddles, etc. The other is a standard tub, but it has a shallow insert that drops in that's great for all the little bits I may need at any time. Big stuff down below that I only need on brew days.
