Living in a small space can be challenging, but it doesn’t have to be. With a few simple adjustments and clever solutions, you can make the most of your small living space and create a beautiful and functional home for you and your family!
From going on a decluttering mission to investing in multipurpose furniture, here are our five best tips for optimising any small living space.
Declutter and organise your belongings
This may seem obvious, but it bears repeating: decluttering is vital when dealing with limited square footage! If you don’t need it, get rid of it so that you’re not overwhelmed by all your stuff every time you walk into a room. Once everything has been sorted through and organised, it will be much easier to clean up afterward since everything will have a place.
Use multi-functional furniture
When you’re dealing with limited space, multi-purpose furniture is essential! Instead of having a separate bed, couch and desk, use furniture that can do more than one of these things at once. Look for furniture that transforms from one function to another – like a bed that folds down into a couch or a desk that doubles as a dining table.
Pro Tip: store all your former furniture with Indoor Self Storage – you can always keep it for your children or grandchildren!
Repurpose unused areas
There are always hidden corners and spots around the house for extra storage or other purposes if you think outside the box! If there’s an unused nook in your hallway or an empty wall in your bedroom, use those spaces to create something new, like custom wardrobe shelving or even a mini home office! You’d be surprised what you can do with just a few square feet of extra space.
Pro Tip: if you don’t have unused areas, store clutter with Indoor Self Storage to give you more room to work with!
Maximise your vertical space
If you’re pressed for floor space, look up! The walls and ceiling in any room offer tons of potential for storage and organisation if you think vertically rather than horizontally. Install shelves on your walls for books or trinkets, add hooks above doorways for hats or coats, hang baskets on a back wall to store kitchen items and use over-the-door hangers to keep cleaning supplies organised – the possibilities are almost endless!
Invest in smart storage solutions
Storage solutions like over-the-door racks or stackable containers are great tools for maximising your storage area without taking up too much floor space. These products come in all shapes and sizes, so you can find something that works best for your needs without sacrificing style or aesthetics! Plus, they’re easy to install. Anyone can do it quickly with minimal effort – no professional installation is required!
