Today’s guest post comes from our friend Zoe Price over in the UK and she has some great ideas on adding more space to your home!
Surprising Ways to Add More Space In Your Home
No matter how big or small your home is, for most of us, space tends to be an issue. However, there are plenty of different ways in which you can create more space in your home that will provide you with the feeling of being more organised and will add airiness and brightness into your home. Here, we are taking you through our surprising ways to add more space into your home.
Adding the Right Balance of Furniture
Many people tend to think that having no furniture makes a room feel bigger than it really is. However, this is not actually the case and a furnished room tends to appear bigger. No one wants to overcrowd their room with furniture, so try and keep a good balance and add minimal furniture that adds to your room, rather than detracts from it. It is also a good idea to look at furniture that can also double as storage. This could be a coffee table with drawers or a footrest with empty space inside.
Use Your High Ceilings
If you are lucky enough to live in a property with high ceilings, then why not take advantage of this for your storage? You can create a loft space that is perfect for storing things or you can purchase furniture, or invest in fitted furniture, that makes use of all this space.
Build Extra Storage
Removing clutter from your home will instantly help make it feel bigger and more organised. You can create extra storage space in your home in places such as underneath your staircase or at the bottom of your closets. Utilise this space to remove any clutter and create a more open and spacious feeling in your home.
Use Your Garden
Your garden can be the perfect spot to create more space if you cannot find anywhere else in your home. You can purchase a steel building which can be used as a workshop, or simply turned into a functional family space. If you use a website such as ArmstrongSteel.com whose steel buildings come in a variety of different sizes, you can choose one which will be perfect for your garden space. This company’s steel buildings are strong and weather resistant which makes them the perfect place to store any of your clutter inside that you don’t currently need.
Some of us have to create more storage space in our homes because we have so many clothes to contend with! It can be a near impossible task to try and fit all of our clothes and accessories into our closets. If this sounds like a problem that you have, an easy way to create more storage is to split your clothes into the different seasons. Then, when summer comes around, you can store your winter clothes away in containers under your bed. This gives you more closet space and the extra space is a great excuse to then treat yourself to some more new clothes!
