Saving Space in Every Room of the House

For nerds, space might be the final frontier. For the rest of us, it’s a valuable commodity in our homes. We all want as much space as possible in our living areas. A cramped living room can restrict our family time. A tiny bathroom is an everyday annoyance. A bedroom with no space isn’t a place where we can be ourselves. A small kitchen makes mealtimes a chore.

Small rooms aren’t a problem that you can’t solve. There are lots of ways to make the most of the space that you have in your home. You may not realise it, but the market is full of products that save space. If they’re not an option, there are also several tricks up the sleeves of interior designers. Here, we’ll show you some great ways to save space in every room of the house.

The Kitchen

In the kitchen, you need the freedom to move around. If you’re preparing a meal, standing still is not an option. You need to get to the cupboards, cooker, fridge, freezer – all sorts of places. You need to make the most of every square inch. We’d start by sticking things all over the walls. Fit hooks onto them where you can hang items. You need to keep your counters clear. Your walls are a different story. Keeping kitchen tools on the walls means that they’re close by, but not in the way.

The Bedroom

Websites are chock-full of tips for saving space in the bedroom. Our favourite tip is the floating shelf. It provides a great deal of storage space, but only takes up a small amount of space itself. Shelving units dominate a room. Floating shelves save space but mean that you can still have your stuff on show. That’s a good way of making sure the bedroom retains its personality.

The Bathroom

Bathrooms are often small, so making the most of their space is vital. We’d recommend fitting units that don’t take up a lot of space. Some units even give the illusion of more space. We think back to wall toilets are a simple way of saving space in any bathroom. They also give your bathroom a more modern look. Let’s face it, who wants to stare at exposed plumbing anyhow?

The Living Room

A living room without space is useless. You can’t relax in a room like that – you need to make space. Again, we’d recommend more innovative shelving and storage solutions. You can also buy cubes that function as both storage spaces and miniature coffee tables. It’s all about making the most of what you have. Anything that can have double the functionality is fine by us! Cool, light colours can also make a room look larger than before. They do this by reflecting the light in the room. Stay away from bold, dark colours if you want a spacious feel.
