While we all desire to live in a home where space isn’t an issue, this is not always possible. If you live with other people, a house can feel small, especially in common areas like the living room, kitchen, and even bathroom.
Below are different ways of making the most of your current space without spending too much money.
The Living Room
After the day’s activities, people often congregate in the living room to share their day’s intricate details. During this time, this space can feel relatively small, and thus it affects your ability to relax.
Make the most of your living room space by:
Allowing Natural Light
Natural light improves how you see the house. Highlighting different sections of your living room through products alternative to curtains gives the room more visual appeal.
Mount the TV
Perhaps you’re used to having an entertainment section of the house where the TV, speakers, and host of other things stay. While this is not a bad thing, having such clutter in one place makes the room feel smaller.
Mount your television and speakers on the wall or above the fireplace to prevent the house from looking congested while still maintaining a stylish look.
Adding unique features to your home can help maximize the space more so in the living room. Accessories can include furniture, art, or smaller pieces that fit into the current space seamlessly.
Simple ideas like buying furniture with exposed legs and chairs with no arms allow for better space use but still leave the room less congested. Large types of art are also a creative way of making the most of space.
Among the most crowded areas in your house, the kitchen always feels like the smallest. Utensils piled on top of one another can often make the room feel like clutter is all over.
Begin de-cluttering your kitchen and making the most of every inch of space by:
Using Open Wall Space
Shelves, pegboards, and racks with hooks make your kitchen very spacious as you can hang or place utensils and other kitchen gadgets in an organized manner.
De-clutter the Counter Tops
The countertop is often the area we use while preparing meals. If this space is full of cups or other kitchen items, it is impossible to work. Remove any unnecessary materials like cups and instead, use magnetic strips to hang them on the wall.
A bathroom that feels cramped is always uneasy, and you may not want to spend much time there. Boost the appeal and space of your bathroom by:
Freeing Up Floor Space
Often you’ll find your bathroom is small due to subtle things like the size of large occupancy of the floor space. Useful products like the pedestal sink and floating vanity help you make the most of your bathroom space.
Adding a Mirror
If your bathroom lacks a mirror, it may feel small and cramped. The reflection of a mirror makes the room feel and look larger as well.
Although your house might not be that big, you can put the available space into suitable use and make the room feel much more significant.
Allow natural light, mount the TV, and accessorize your living room. Simultaneously, use open wall space and de-clutter the countertops in the kitchen and free up floor space and add a mirror in the bathroom to cost-effectively maximize your living space.
