Creating more space in your small home can be easier than you think. While working with a small space can be tricky, it can still be transformed into space you didn’t know you had. It’s important to find the decorating tips you need to maximize your living space now so you don’t feel cramped or crowded at home. Therefore, we have some tips that will help you create more space for your small home.
First, you should sift through all your possessions and decide what you can eliminate and what you have to keep. The fewer items you have to work with, the better your outcome will be. Rule of thumb, if you haven’t used it in years and it’s not a family heirloom, discard it or donate it. Getting organized will be to your best benefit.
How to create more space:
Storage space – Use what storage space you have appropriately. Bookcases and shelves can be used as a multi function space. Get creative and decorative by using them to store artwork, DVD’s, vases, heirlooms, sculptures and more. You can even use them to hold your floor plants if you have enough space.
Keep-in-mind, if you have a bulky bookshelf or entertainment center, you may be better off without it. You will have to use your best judgment in this area.
Wall and ceiling space – When it comes to the kitchen of a small house, it can be difficult to find the space you need for pots and pans, fruit and more. Walls and ceilings come in handy in the kitchen most. You can hang spice racks on the walls, add shelving for storage containers, and hang utensils on the walls to get more organized. You can hang a pot and pan rack on the ceiling to hold most of your pots and pans. You may also consider purchasing a mobile food cart to hold extra items that you can move around the space easily.
Extra storage spaces – For seasonal items and decorations don’t forget under bed storage. This can save you tons of space if you utilize the under bed storage space. Closets and nooks can also be big storage spaces if you pack things in just right. There are tons of items available to help you organize closets and get the most space from them at any home goods store.
