You may have space that you haven’t even considered using, or you may be able to make more use of the space you are already utilizing. Another thing to consider is using self storage for the likes of furniture that you are no longer using but could use further down the line. If you are looking for ways to create more space in your home, keep reading as we have put together four ideas to help you.

Have multifunctional rooms

You may be using one room for something and another room for something else but if you can, why not combine both of them to free up some space. For example, if you have a home office but you need the space for a nursery, you could move your office desk and chair into another room of the house, like a spare bedroom. Make sure it’s one of the quieter rooms though so you can still get your work complete in a calm environment.

Buy smart furniture

Smart furniture is items that come with storage already built into them. This is about making the most of what you have. Although you may be tempted to pick furniture based on its design, you should opt for items that are going to make your life easier, such as a tray table floor lamp, a storage ottoman, or a foldable sofa bed. Things that serve more than one purpose and can be used in different ways will help maximise space. 

Get creative under the stairs

Many people don’t realise the full potential of the space under the stairs. Sure, it’s a great place to put the clothes rack or the hoover, or any other bits you don’t want guests to see when they pop round, but there are so many better ways you could be using this space. You can easily add shelves or cupboards here and turn it into a pantry for all your dry ingredients and baking goods, if you have a dog you can turn it into space for your pet, or you could even turn it into a small office. 

Use every inch of space

If your kitchen is on the small side and you’re looking around thinking you’ve got nowhere to put anything, think again! You can hang wall-mounted shelves to store ingredients and the shelves can also act as a place to hang kitchen utensils. Make use of the kitchen cupboards too. They make a great place to hang rubber gloves, sponges, and plastic bags. You could even use the cupboard to store the kitchen bin which will free up more space. 

When it comes to creating space at home, you just need to be smart with it to see the full potential that your house has. Hopefully, these four tips have given you some ideas on how you can utilise the pace in your home.
