Sometimes it may seem like there just is not enough storage for your items. You could be in the middle of a move and realize that the amount of storage will likely decrease. At the same time, you may be simply trying to improve your space and declutter.
Keep reading for space-saving techniques and ideas. These ideas will make your small space feel large and inviting, not cramped and claustrophobic.
Utilize Each Portion of Space Effectively
To be efficient with your space, you need to be creative. This can be done by using wall space as storage and decoration. For example, if you have a large assortment of mugs, you can hang some of the mugs on your wall. That is merely one simple way to save space.
Furniture Should Serve Multiple Purposes
When purchasing large furniture, purchase ones that will allow for multiple functions. A bed should be the smallest size you are comfortable with. This will allow for extra pieces of storage furniture. Something as seemingly simple as a trunk at the foot of your bed will hold quite a bit of things. Loft beds are quite popular for that specific reason.
Get Everything Off the Floor
When a room has a bunch of items on the floor, it can feel smaller. Figure out how to adjust your space, so there are minimal items on the floor. Not only does this aid with maneuverability, but also will be more visually appealing.
To accomplish this, try to donate or give away items that are not used. With the remaining items, figure out what is used regularly and keep those easily reachable. Keep in mind that shelves are your friend.
Seek the Assistance of Tools
Lifesavers come in the form of hooks with removable adhesives. These hooks generally are available in small, thin or heavy-duty varieties. This makes them the perfect addition to your space. They can be used everywhere.
Re-arrange Your Closet Space
If you can place your dresser inside your closet, do it. This can be achieved by raising the hanging bar in your closet a bit. Raising the bar allows you to fit a dresser and make it so that organization boxes will fit. The boxes can be a space for seasonal items or items that are not needed daily.
Once again, think about what you need. If you are going through your closet, you might as well take time to organize it. Envision the items you need to make your life easier and make those easily accessible. The rest could be sold online or at a yard sale or donated. Keep only the items that have sentimental value.
Know Your Dimensions
Make your furniture so that your space shows off your personality, but is also easy to navigate. Also, remember that little things can make a big difference. Hanging clothing up can take up more room than folding items into a drawer. If a wardrobe is something non-negotiable to you then the question is how much do you have? If you have a lot of items, that will require more horizontal space. It is necessary to start with what you will not give up before you look into any other steps. This can be a tedious process but is well worth it in the end.
