Small homes are a growing trend in the housing market. This is mostly for a couple of reasons such as less time spent on cleaning and home maintenance, as well as affordability. However, the downsides to small homes are the less living and storage space which would need thorough planning on furniture placements. Here are some simple space-saving steps you can take to maximize the space in your small home.
Use storage racks
There are a hundred of household items in a home. It'd be so easy for these items to go unnoticed, scattered and disorganized. To prevent this, try using storage racks that would help you organize your items. When you utilize racks, either free standing or hung on the wall, the display makes it easy to locate your items and it helps make sure you won't crowd your countertops. For tiny kitchens, make use of the little spaces between refrigerator and cabinets to organize your utensils.
Install sliding barn doors
Compared to conventional doors, barn doors are easy to install and can free up floor space. It is a great option for areas in your home such as bathrooms and hallways that can easily be blocked by a door that swings open. Barn doors can be made from lightweight materials which makes it easy to open and close, especially convenient when your hands are full carrying heavy items. There are also a variety of designs for barn doors and can add to the aesthetic appeal of your home.
Get a bed that has storage underneath
Consider getting a wooden bed with storage drawers underneath. Your bed doesn't have to be just for sleeping, you can also use it to declutter your bedroom. It can help free up bulky wardrobes and cabinets and at the same time prevent other items and dust from getting into the empty space under your bed. Wooden storage beds also offer visual appeal, from traditional to modern designs.
Pull-out tray tables
Now that working from home is becoming more common, you will need an area at your home where you can do your work. What if there's no more extra room for you to use as an office? Well, this is where the pull-out tray tables come in handy. Just install a sliding table wherever at home that you prefer, and then you can slide a chair when needed. After using the table, it'd be easy to slide back the table and tuck away the chair.
Shelves into the wall
Instead of installing bulky cabinets and shelves, why not take advantage of the hollow space in your walls behind the drywall? From there, you can choose to use recessed shelving as open or closed storage. This is a great idea to utilize wall space without taking up valuable workspace in your small home.
These are just some of the space-saving steps you can take to maximize the space in your small home. I hope this helps you enjoy a spacious and neat home.
