Ways to Create Extra SpaceJuly 17, 2018
You have worked for a long time to keep your home clean and tidy. As time goes on, items start to take up space in your home. So what can you do to optimize all of the space you can? By using these little tips and tricks, you can create extra space throughout your home. Keep the clutter off of the floor, away from countertops, and find room for all of your things without having to spend too much money to do it.
Shelves save space
By exploring shelving options, you can fairly easily put up the proper sized shelves you need to fit just about anything. This can be a great space saver when it comes to places like the laundry room or kitchen. You can place things like detergent, softeners, and cleaning products up high and away from young children more easily with shelves. You can also use your new shelves to store soft blankets, towels, and tablecloths to keep them clean and out of the way. Try painting your shelves bold colors to bring a little life into the room.
Just when you think there could not possibly be any more room in your bedroom, you should consider the space under your bed. You can store things like shoes, bed linens, and an assortment of accessories. Go a little more luxury by purchasing coordinating storage compartments that can fit with your current furniture. By doing this, you can assure that the drawers blend in more seamlessly with your current bed frame. To keep the look of your bedroom set in tact, opt for containers made of other materials like wicker and wood. Be sure to measure the space between the bed and floor before buying them so you can be sure that they will fit underneath with no problem.
Have you looked into getting rid of excess clutter in your kitchen? Think about the things you love to use and where you would like to see them. Find additions you can include in your kitchen that provides a purpose and makes your cooking and cleaning routine easier. For example, placing a rotating spice rack in one of your cupboards can dramatically change the organization of your kitchen in the best way possible. You can also consider installing a wine rack to store your favorite bottles in a refined way.
Cubbies & hooks
Other easily acquired storage can come in the forms of cubbies and hooks. If you have children or pets, cubbies can be a cool way to store things like toys and books. Stackable cubbies can not only look modern and trendy, but can also save your floor area from looking too messy. When it comes to installing hooks to hang up items like purses and bath towels, try to look for sleek styled hooks that can be applied and removed with no damage to your walls.
