Easy Ways To Save Space In Your Home

by racheal

All of us wish of owning that “Big American Dream” … know as property. But becoming a home owner and fulfilling that dream is not easy.

When you save and buy property you sometimes come to the realization that it is not as big as you had hoped or that you’ve ended up with a slightly smaller home than you had imagined. That is when you need to plan out how to make use of each and every square foot of space that you have in your house or condo. 

Just because you have a small home doesn’t mean it has to be in disorder. Here are some tips how you can make optimum use of the space that is available to you. 

• Keep the minimum amount of stuff at home. Simply remove any extra possessions. A good guide line is that if you haven’t used it in 2 years you are probably never are going to use it, so toss it!

• Give an illusion that the room is big by removing obstacles so that the space looks open and wide.

• While doing up the house keep shelves and drawers above windows and doorways. That way you get enough space to walk around.

• Using foldable coffee tables and dining tables will help in keeping the place open as well as using it only when required.

• Create an illusion that the room looks big. Lighting is one of the most important fixtures in a home and by placing bulbs and fixtures at strategic points you can make the home look more open.

• If your living room opens into a patio, make it comfy so that it looks like an extension of your living room.

• Keep your pockets full as well as a no clutter home by buying only minimum amount of furniture.

• If your sofa and chairs are bigger in size then your home also has a bigger appearance.

• Keep the window pane clean so that enough sunlight pours in making the room look bigger.

• Use light and frilly curtains to keep it light and cheerful.

• To optimize the kid’s rooms, use bunk beds and study tables with shelves and a small stair for the kids to climb on.

All these tips mentioned above can help you to utilize the space available to make your home look big and roomy.
