Working With Small Spaces At Home

Unfortunately for some of us, we can’t all have our dream home with mounds of space to work with, so it’s important to utilise that space to the best of it’s ability. Being clever with your storage options and room layout is all you need to make your home feel bigger. Here’s a few ways to do just that.

1. Hidden storage

Creating clever storage where ever you can in the house is key and by thinking outside the box, you can often create more space by getting rid of clutter.

2. Don’t forget about the floor

People often disregard the floor beneath them as an option for creating more space. Clever ideas like this one below, where the bath is dropped in lower than the floor to incorporate a shower as well is a brilliant space saver.

3. Look up

In the kitchen, put in cabinets all the way up to the ceiling. Obviously store the items you use less in the higher shelves, but there’s no reason why you shouldn’t utilise higher spaces too.

4. Under the stairs

It’s one of the areas in the house that isn’t used in the best way, but it’s the perfect space for adapting to your needs whether it’s storage or a little reading nook.

5. Floating shelves

Using floating shelves instead of cabinets/bookcases or standing shelving units, allows for more floor space and these can be put in over your sofa, bed or toilet for example. Utilising the corners is also good for getting more out of little nooks.

6. Stick it on

If you have a small home office or working space, then sticking/pinning items on the wall ahead of you avoids having boxes on the floor around you and allows for more floor space.
