Are you in a small home where space saving is a huge concern?

utility and the space you need to move around comfortably.
No one likes a cluttered home but you don’t need to cut back
on the things you love as much as you’d think.
Read on and we’ll share some excellent space-saving tips
that will help you make the most of your home’s limited floorplan.
1. Organize Those Cabinets!
Many people fail to make optimal use of their cabinets
and other built-in storage like linen closets. Saving space in your home is
about decluttering as much as it is about getting innovative.
If you’re willing to put in the work then you’ll find that
you may have more storage space than you thought. Just open up the cabinets,
get rid of everything you don’t need, and make sure that you use the space
If you want to take things a step further you can even get
organizers for both the inside and the door. Just make sure that they’re not
banging into shelves and you can turn the back of a cabinets door into
even more storage space.
You can buy organizers pre-made or find a
array of ideas
2. Storage in Furniture
One thing which people often neglect when they’re looking to
save space is their furniture. If your budget allows you’ll be surprised at how
much space you can save by picking up ottomans, couches, or even coffee tables
that have internal storage.

will help out, an ottoman may have a few extra cubic feet of storage for

and taking up valuable space, these specially-designed pieces can be
utilitarian: stick board games in a coffee table, throw blankets in an ottoman,
and get set up for a fantastic game night.
3. Hang Your Pots and Pans
Let’s face it, many of us just have way, way too many
appliances for our kitchens. The modern world faces us with an array of
tempting food prep items that can be hard to turn down.
And then they end up cluttering our kitchen.
Most peoples under-counter cabinets are filled to the brim
with pots, pans, and cooking implements.
Why not buy a hanging storage array for them? Or, even
better, make one yourself? A few hooks and a couple of pieces of wood from a
pallet can make for a unique, rustic display with no advanced woodworking
By opening up more cabinet space you’ll be able to keep
clutter, both real and visual, from taking up a ton of space in the kitchen.
More storage in the kitchen is always a win in the end.
4. Storage Headboards
In smaller living spaces bedrooms often suffer. The usual
setup in a smaller home involves a bed and a nightstand or table.
Why not ditch the nightstand and create a functional
headboard with storage space?
Those with DIY skills can design drawers and sliders that
allow for a super functional piece that looks great. Those who aren’t quite on
the handy end of things can still build some
Give it a shot, they’re a nice custom touch and many people
find them to be invaluable in the end.
5. Multi-Use Furniture
If you ditch the usual suspects when you’re first filling
your apartment then you may be surprised at how many awesome, functional pieces
of furniture are available that serve multiple purposes.
Whether it’s a kitchen table that doubles as shelving or a
in the utility of your home.
So, when you’re looking to outfit a new apartment or studio
you should always keep an eye out for things which have more than one use:
they’ll end up saving you a whole lot of space in the end.
6. Corner Shelving
Quite often smaller apartments have a lot of tight corners
that seem to limit the amount of space you can use. Whether it’s a tiny hallway
on the inside of a door into a room or just oddly shaped walls… you can use
these to your advantage.
You can buy ready-made shelves for any ninety-degree corner.
They usually stick in with minimal damage and allow you to make sure you have
more storage space in every corner of the home.
Apart from their obvious utility… they can look quite
nifty if you go the extra mile and construct them yourself.
So, when you’re checking out a new living space keep an eye
out for any extra space that you can use for storage.
7. Overhead Storage
If you’ve got higher ceilings than normal then you should
look into using the room above you as well.
You can build shelving for storage overhead and either use
it for decorations or just things that you don’t need to access all that often.
If you’ve been following along then chances are you have enough room somewhere
to keep a step ladder handy when you need to get up there.
Don’t let that space go to waste! Finding solutions is as
easy as raising your gaze.
