So you bought a new home! It’s the perfect size… until your family grows. A new spouse, a new kid (or two)… it will suddenly make your home feel as though it shrunk. Not to worry! Moving into a larger home is not your only option!
Check out some of these great space saving tips for your home.
UNDER STAIRS STORAGE
This is one of the most underutilized spaces in a two story house. So much potential here for storage space – kids toys, winter clothes, family documents… go crazy!
DRAWERS AND CABINETS
And if you want to go all out with your stairs, take a look at another option to expand your space even further! Stairs make great hideaways. Take advantage.
FOLD DOWN TABLE
No dining room? No worries! You only need a small amount of space for this fold up table and you could even paint the underside of it more colorfully for an artistic look!
One of the most infuriating features is a false drawer. It’s just a tease. Change that and put those drawer fronts to work!
TAKE IT TO ANOTHER LEVEL
A garage can turn into the messiest room in the house very quickly. Tools and equipment (and everything else) pile up quickly. Think upward to create extra space!
CLEAN OUT YOUR CLOSET
Everyone loves a neat and tidy closet. But the floor usually ends up a mess of dirty clothes. Put in some custom shelving and baskets to keep your floors tidy and you can even separate darks and lights!
No pantry in your kitchen? No problem. Take a little wall space from your garage to build in a recessed pantry for your kitchen!
ROLLING SPICE PANTRY
Low on cabinet space? Don’t let your spices take up three shelves that could definitely be used for other purposes! Build your own spice pantry right next to the fridge!
UNDER CABINET DRAWERS
There is unused space everywhere! All you have to do is find it. Whether you use these drawers for kitchen supplies or just general storage, they are sure to be a much-needed space saver!
HANG YOUR BED
The lesson here is “think upward”. Don’t just cover the floor – remember that the walls are also unused space and you can build out on them!
