Making the most of your space
In today’s property market, space is often a luxury that many people don’t always have, whether they own or rent. With people downsizing but belongings rising, making the most of what space you have is crucial. To help you out, we have a few space saving tips to ensure your home is bigger on the inside:
Expand storage space
One of the best ways to make the most of your space – whatever size your home is! – is through clever storage. Chairs and tables that open up like chests, wardrobes organised to hold your unique clothing needs and multi-use items are all great ways to add storage without using too much space.
Mirrors and glass
Maximising light can open up a space and make it appear larger than it is. Mirrors and glass can reflect light and space and open up a room. Strategically place mirrors that reflect the world outside and use furniture and décor with glass to eliminate shadows.
Build up rather than across
One space many people neglect is their wall. Don’t let vertical space go to waste – hang art and place shelves higher to not only use up free space but also draw the eye up and make the room feel more expansive than it really is.
Spring clean your wardrobe
One thing that often takes up a lot of space is your wardrobe. Overflowing racks and disorganised outfits can make getting ready and cleaning your clothes a nightmare! Take the time to spring clean and purge anything you don’t need, then consider upgrading the wardrobe to make it more organised and ensure a more functional storage space.
Frameless shower screens
Lines that cut up a room can make it seem crowded and smaller than it actually is. One trend that can help, particularly in the bathroom, a space that is often smaller, is the installation of a frameless shower screen. This means there is no line or edge cutting off the room without removing the functionality of the screen. The glass will also reflect light and brighten the room.
