Do you feel like your home is too small and cluttered? Clever interior design can help. Interior designers will tell you that the key to getting more space in your house is by knowing how to use storage and furniture wisely. Interior design includes everything from painting walls, installing cabinets, adding light fixtures, or installing new flooring. Below are some home improvement project ideas you need to invest in if you need more space in your home.
Use multi-purpose furniture
If you want to get rid of the clutter and make your home more practical, then use multi-purpose furniture. For example, consider how your dining room table could function as a workspace if you work from home or need a place for kids to do their homework. You might invest in some storage options to make the space more functional and easier to pack away when you have guests over or wish to dine together as a family.
Find additional storage space
There’s likely to be space in your home that’s not being well utilized. Under the beds is a common waste of space. The humble box can be used to store toys, children’s clothes and even shoes where you’re able to see everything that is stored in them.
If you live in a tiny house or small apartment, then it is easy for your available storage spaces to be jam packed. If you organize your closets and store seldom used items away neatly on high shelves, this can help save valuable floor space that would otherwise be taken up by bulky items. Many closets don’t use the full height of the space so consider adding storage shelving to make the most of your available space.
Redesign your laundry
The laundry in most homes is a space that gets used and abused. It often becomes the dumping ground for a lot of junk and therefore needs an overhaul to function properly. With the growing popularity of laundry pick-up and delivery services, you may be able to rethink your entire laundry space to make it far more useful and practical for your lifestyle. With clever design you can create a stress-free laundry routine.
Consider home safety
When our homes are not well designed, we tend to put our things everywhere and that may not be safe, particularly for young children. It is important to consider home safety especially when you are designing your kitchen, bathroom and laundry space. For instance, if you place a clothes dryer or ironing board within reach of young children, they might be tempted to fool around with it which can lead to injuries and accidents.
Do you really need all that stuff?
If you live in a tiny house and find yourself having to shift everything around just to function in your home, then it is time for an honest evaluation of what’s necessary and what can be given away. This could be challenging if you have lived in your home for a long time, but it is important to get rid of items that are no longer used and which take up space unnecessarily.
It’s no secret that many people are living in small spaces these days. Whether you live in a tiny house or just have a modest apartment, it can be tough to find space for all of your belongings and still feel like you’re not on top of each other. We trust these tips have been helpful for you to get more space in your home even if you live in a tiny house.
