Smart Ways to Create More Space in Your Home
New homes just keep getting larger and larger. Last year, the average size of new homes in America was over 2,500 square feet. However, there are still lots of homes that have smaller spaces that homeowners need help with. Therefore, we have some tips that can help you create more space within your small space. These tips are perfect for homes with small floor plans.
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.
