How to take advantage of small spaces

Living in a small place is not the end of the world. You can always make some decorations and small changes to take full advantage of its capacity. There are lots of benefits to small place living. For example, it is easier for cleaning, heating and cooling. Moreover, you are less likely to buy lots of unnecessary things. And this way you focus on the things that you really need.
          If you have already gathered a lot of things that you are not using, this is the right moment to start throwing away. If you live in a small place, you can’t afford to clutter it with unnecessary items. Whether you are living in a small or big home, you have to clear it out regularly. You need to consider throwing away old, broken and rarely used items. You’ll be amazed how much space you are going to free. Even the smallest home will start to look spacious once it’s not so messy and chaotic.
           Most of the times you don’t need much more space in your house. You just need to learn how to use the space that you have more efficiently. Let’s see how you can make each room in your home look larger.

  1. Bedroom

          This is one of the most important rooms in your house. You want to feel relaxed and calm there. Feeling trapped in a small place is the last thing you want after coming home after a long day at work.
The first thing you should do is to remove the clutter. Sort all of your belongings. Do you use all of them? If not, start selling or throwing away.
You can put your stuff in decorative boxes. Place them in the closet or in the corner of the bedroom. This will make the whole room look more beautiful and well-organized.
There is no need to place a TV in this room as it will take up a lot of space. You can also use the space under the bed for storing some of your belongings.
Choose wisely what colours you are going to use to paint the walls and the ceiling. Keep in mind that dark colours will make the room look smaller. Light colours on the other hand will make it look more spacious.

  1. Kid’s room

          A bunk bed can be really space-saving for the kid’s room. You will have more space for a desk or other furniture. There is no need to place a TV in this room as well.

  1. Kitchen

          When it comes to making your kitchen look more spacious, you should start thinking vertically. By this, we mean that the more kitchen supplies you put on the wall, the more space you will have for cooking. Hang all of your pans and pots on the wall.

  1. Bathroom

          Wall shelves may be the perfect solution for the lack of space in this room. Put all of your toiletries there.

  1. Living room

          It is also one of the places in your home that needs to be really spacious. Always choose light colours for the walls and the ceiling. This will make the room look bigger. Use room dividers such as specifically placed sofa, or just a simple curtain divider. This is the best way to visually separate certain room spaces.
If you want to be really creative and yet space-saving, you can always use the space between two floor levels for storing some of your things. You can do that by building shelves there.
There are also some tricks that you can use in all of your rooms to make them look larger. You already read about the importance of light colours. Another thing that you have to consider is placing a big mirror in your bedroom, bathroom or living room. This is also a great way to make a room appear much bigger.
These are some of the creative ideas that you can choose from to make your small home look larger. Use all of the space you have efficiently and you will find out that there is a place for everything you need.
