No one wishes to live and move in tight spaces and cramped houses. Free movement in a home is essential regardless of the area. Unfortunately, not everybody can afford an apartment or a big house.
For easy and free movement in your house, you need to look for ways to maximize the available space. If you move around your house, I am sure you will find spaces to maximize to eliminate clutter.
Most people wish to maximize their home spaces, but it seems impossible to revamp your home space with tight budgets and the time needed to organise and visit the materials market. However, a few adjustments can come in handy. Below are ways you can use to maximise your home’s space.
1. Take advantage of the bedroom space
You may not have a big and spacious bedroom, but you can try some simple and innovative ways of organising your stuff like:
Using the space under the bed well
This is an amazing way to maximize your room’s capacity. Free some space from the drawers or cabinets by putting some of the stuff under the bed. You can buy a compartmentalised bed, storage boxes or fit drawers underneath the bed.
Use excess closet space
You can store some of your stuff in any idle space available in your cabinet. You can rearrange your clothes to get that extra space.
2. Use stairs for storage
You can store many things on your staircase if you have one. The space underneath the staircase might come in handy when you want to store old stuff or create a storage unit for other needs.
You can use the space underneath the staircase for many different things like:
• Build a customised room
• Building a Wine rack
• Make drawers
3. Maximising the bathroom space
Normally, bathrooms have a limited amount of stuff because only a single person uses it at a time. Regardless of whether you have a narrow or spacious bathroom, you can make good use of the available space by doing the following:
• Free up some floor space like under the vanity to store extra toiletries or towels
• Add mirrors to brighten the mood and make it look big.
• Add mounting hooks, especially behind the bathroom door, to have extra space to hang the towels in use.
4. Make the least used room a storage facility
If you have an attic or basement in your home, you can utilize it by keeping your stuff. Also, you can use it for storing your grocery items that are big to store in the kitchen storage unit.
The basement or attic is the best place to store things you no longer use regularly (old furniture and gadgets). When storing things in your attic, organise and label them properly to get anything that you need later quickly and with a lot of ease.
5. Purchase multifunctional furniture
People accumulate many things as they live in a particular place for a long time. Innovative furniture plays an important role when it comes to additional storage.
You can go for a table with magazine compartments or create built-in drawers to get more storage space. There are furniture like sofas and stools with an extra storage unit to store small items like toys and shoes.
6. Make the entryway free
Avoid overcrowding your entryway since it reflects the living room. Overcrowded entrances make the whole house feel cramped. You and your guests should move freely when entering the house.
You can free up the entrance by creating a waiting area where you can use it as a storage unit for temporary things like placing your bag before going to work or your kid’s bag when waiting for the school bus.
7. Utilise the garage space
You can use your garage for parking and storing junk. You can use the overhead ceiling to store things you still need but use them less often. You will have a good space for your car by putting some items on the rack.
In the nutshell
Now you know! Start organising your stuff and see the amount of space you will create in your home. You can start in the unexpected areas like the staircase and move to more obvious areas like your garage and bedrooms. You can buy already customised furniture to store items if you don’t have time to organise your space.
