How to Take Advantage of a Small Space
If you are living in a home or apartment that you feel is smaller and hard to utilize the space you have, here are some tips to try and work with that space.
Make sure that you use all the space you have available. Whether this means putting up shelving on the walls or strategically placing furniture to make the room look bigger. The less clutter you have on the ground, the more open the room will feel. Try and create optical illusions in the room. One way of doing this is hanging curtains higher than the frame of your window. If the room is small, doing this will make the room feel larger and the ceilings higher.
Using something as simple as a riser under the bed in any bedroom will create more space. You can use storage baskets and put anything underneath such as clothes or whatever you may not have space for in plain sight. This concept eliminates having to stack things on top of each other causing the room to look cluttered and small. Another option for storage is using baskets. Baskets can be placed in multiple places, do not take up a lot or room and can hold many things. They are ultimately the multipurpose item that everyone should have in their home.
Dont be afraid to try and make the room seem bigger. An easy fix to this is if the room you are in has a closet, remove the door. Removing the door creates less traffic and more storage options in the space. If you are using a room as an office and you have a larger sized closet, place a shelving unit in the closet. That way you are removing a piece of furniture from the actual room but still allowing yourself to have the storage solutions you want.
