How to Maximise Your Living Space

Most people would jump at the opportunity to live in a four bedroom luxury house, with high ceilings, solid wood flooring, a grand piano and a massive dining area. Unfortunately though, the reality is that this dream is not financially viable for the majority of everyday people. But this doesn’t mean that you are destined for a life of claustrophobic imprisonment in a tiny flat! On the contrary, there are many ways in which you can maximise the existing space in your house.

 

First, De-clutter

 

It’s easy to get down about having very little free space in your home. Perhaps you feel like the walls are closing in on you? Well, before you jump to any conclusions, it is worth checking that the wall isn’t in fact a mass of junk you’ve not yet made time to get rid of or organise! In order to truly maximise your available space, you have to be prepared to do away with the old an unwanted items you have strewn about the house. As a general rule of thumb, if an item hasn’t been used for awhile and probably won’t be, get rid of it. Naturally, you’ll want to keep items of sentimental value, but ones that are there simply because you haven’t had a clear out can go.

 

Space Saving Furniture

 

The statement that you can gain more space through buying additional furniture It may seem like a paradox at first, but it’s true. For example, what sort of beds do you have in your home? If the answer is a standard double or king sized bed, then you can save space by replacing it with a bed that has in-built storage shelves. Or if you have kids, you can maximise their bedroom space through either a classic bunk bed, or alternatively a high sleeper bed. Both of these options are inexpensive and will make a massive difference to your overall bedroom space.

 

Hang Things

 

Perhaps you love to cook. Perhaps you love cooking so much that your pots and pans occupy a fairly excessive amount of space in your kitchen? Wall hangers are the solution. With these, you can store all of your pots, pans and cooking utensils above the stove area, freeing up the space below and alleviating all the frustration associated with a messy kitchen.

 

Shop Around

 

All of the above suggestions are readily available and none are beyond the budget of an average household. And if you do your research and shop online, you’ll definitely get a much better deal than you would in-store.
