Making The Most Of Space In Your New Home
Moving into a new house can be difficult, and if you’re moving into a smaller home then you might like then you’re probably going to encounter a few problems! If you’re moving into a smaller house and you’re looking to make the most of the space in your new home then have a look at this guide of hints and tips to get you off to the best start possible! 1) Understand the space that you have.The first step in making the most of the space in your home is to understand the space that you have. Not every corner of your home is going to have available space, perhaps because of doors and perhaps because of windows, vents and other such things. Ask your landlord or agent for a copy of the blueprints of your home before moving day so that you can get to grips with what you have available to you. This will make buying furniture, moving your belongings and planning the layout of your home much simpler and faster for you and your family, so it’s definitely worth doing! 2) Making space in your bedroom.Your bedroom should be a spacious and calm environment, but this can be difficult to achieve in small homes. If your home isn’t furnished then this gives you a good opportunity to make the most of the room that you have. Try purchasing a bed that has storage included within it so that you can store anything from bedding to books. You might also want to find a wardrobe that includes drawers or perhaps shelving for your other needs too. Floating shelves are a great way to give yourself a little extra room without taking up any floor space. Play around and see what you can find to make your bedroom more roomy. 3) Making space in your living room.Your living room will probably see a lot of action, which means it should have enough space to cope with the traffic! Everything from magazine racks to floating shelves can help you to keep your living room spacious and clear, so shop around to see what you can find. There are lots of useful furniture pieces that can double as storage solutions, such as footrests and ottomans, so if you’re not sticking to a budget then look to see what’s available for you! 4) Making space in your kitchen.Your kitchen needs to be organised, whether that means you buy extra storage space or not! Floating shelves are perfect for cookery books, spices and condiments, and you can also find novel and ingenious ways to store your pans and pots using only the wall and a bracket. Kitchen countertops can also be used to store mugs using a mug-tree and even jars if you really are pushed for space! 5) Making space in your bathroom.Your bathroom is easy to keep clear, even if you don’t have a lot of room. Under-the-sink storage, wall cabinets, drawers and shelves are all great for use in the bathroom, and can keep yours looking spacious and clear no matter how small it might be! You can find in-shower shelves and trays to keep your toiletries off the floor of your shower, and some don’t even need to be installed. Saving space is all about using your imagination, so play around to find the right storage solutions for your home!
