Do you struggle to use the space in your home effectively? If you’re tired of living in a house that feels smaller than it should or need to free up space for a new project, then here are some space saving hacks to change your life!
In the Kitchen
The kitchen is the heart of the home but yours might be more of a nightmare than a cosy place to chill. Get inventive with how you store all of your kitchen equipment and you can free up a lot of space. Hooks and wall hangings can drastically reduce the amount of drawer and cupboard space you’re using.
A breakfast bar can also take your kitchen from drab to fab. If you have a larger table elsewhere but don’t really use it, then get rid of it. For smaller families, a breakfast bar can be more than adequate for all meals. Within a small flat, this can give you a lot more space to play with.
These can even fold away to give you more space when you need it. Look for furniture that can serve extra purposes and be placed away quickly when not in use.
In the Bedroom
There are many ways that you can free up space in your bedroom, from small organisational elements to new furniture. Our top tip is to look for a comfortable corner sofa bed so that you can get rid of the bulk when it’s not in use. While a sofa bed might make you think of discomfort, there are some great ones out there that will give you a good night’s sleep without taking up your whole room.
Take a look at all of your clothing and possessions that you keep in your room and decide if there’s a better way to store them. If you don’t have a lot of cupboard space, then placing your bed on a platform can give you a new area to store folded clothes. Consider storing clothing that’s out of season, as you won’t be wearing it for half the year. Vacuum sealing will shrink these down in size too.
In the Living Room
If you have a lot of clutter around your living room, then it’s time to invest in some new storage. Shelving units and stylish cupboards will also compliment the décor of the room too. Pick bright items of furniture if you want to add flair into the room, as these can become statement pieces.
If you don’t want to spend a lot on these pieces of furniture, then make sure you keep your eyes peeled in charity shops. With a little paint and polish, you could take these unwanted pieces of furniture and give them new life in your home, for a fraction of the price too. Plus it’s better for the environment if you upcycle instead of buying new.
These space saving hacks will help you to get more out of the space you have, without spending a lot of cash!
