With proper room décor skills, you can make even the smallest space look larger in appearance. All it requires is a bit of creativeness and willingness to change things than the usual. In this post, we will discuss the top 20 ways using which you can maximise space in your home.
#1 Floating Furniture
Floating furniture is one of the best ways to maximise space in your home. You can install floating furniture, shelves in your living area or in the entry way. By leaving the floor area open, you will have more room to walk.
#2 Furniture with Shelving
We are often hesitant to bring in furniture, especially in small areas, as we fear that it may take up too much space. Therefore, when looking for furniture, say a coffee table, for your living room, find items that have layers of shelving with even space underneath in which you can place plastic boxes for extra storage.
#3 Choose the Right Colour Pallet
Simple, light colour pallets trick the eyes into thinking that space is larger even if it isn’t. Choosing the right colour pallet for your walls, furniture, and other essentials like curtains in your living space can make a smaller area seem open and big.
#4 Keep it Simple, Keep it UNDER
Don’t buy tables that are too complex. In order to maximise space, choose tables that stools and chairs can easily slide under. This way, you can make vanish extra furniture and clear up floor space when not in use.
#5 Keep the Walls Clean and Empty
The best way to make your space feel less cluttered is by keeping the walls clean and empty. White is a great colour option for the walls, especially if you have a smaller home.
#6 Hang it Up
Rather than storing your personal items in your bedroom or wardrobe, designate hanging rods in the entry way to leave, hats, umbrellas, bags, coats, etc.
#7 Keep Arranging until you Find the Perfect Arrangement
One of the best ways to organise your living space and make more room is by getting creative and having fun with the placement of your home essentials. Keep arranging until you hit the right spot.
#8 Organised Collection
Whether in a specific cabinet or on the shelf, confine your beloved collection to one spot. That is, keep similar items under one collection. This makes your space more organised and curated.
#9 Make the Most out of your Mantelshelf
Your fireplace could also be a storage den. Experiment placing plants or stacking books on the mantel. You can also store fireplace essentials in decorative plastic boxes and stack them up in this space.
#10 Hanging Garden
If you love the idea of keeping plants and ferns indoors but lack the space, don’t worry. There is a solution to every problem. Invest in hanging pots, small succulents, and other hanging plants.
#11 Utilise the Space Under Stairs
You can turn your stairs into the ultimate storage shelf. You can DIY storage cabinets and install them under the stairs or call a professional to make the most out of the space.
#12 Add a Loft Anywhere
Reading and Sleeping nooks maximise your space while providing privacy in shared areas. Snag space above the living room, bedroom, or anywhere else you like.
#13 Keep your Seasonal Clothes Away
Winter clothes can take up a lot of storage space in your wardrobe. You can store them in the bed drawers or if you have a hallway closet, consider storing them there. Transfer unnecessary clothing items from your wardrobe to save space.
#14 Behind Every Closed Door, there is a Storage Space
To maximise the most out of your small living space, take advantage of the backs of the doors for storing different items. You can install hangers behind every door and make room for belts, scarves, bags, coats, hats, etc.
