Sadly, major cities offer little to no space in homes and apartments. It has become a necessity for people to quickly adjust on how to manage their small space. Over time, we accumulate more and more items which can add to the stress of finding storage in a tiny space. There is no need to fret, here is how to get a lot out a little (space):
1. Store high above.
There is so much storage right in front of our eyes that we may not even realize is there. When in doubt, just look up. You can install cabinets, hooks to hang your bike, place extra clothing rods, put in a pot rack, etc.
2. Double the purpose.
When there is little space available, your items will begin to serve several purposes. In recent years, products on the market have begun to institute this rule. You can buy a shelving system that turns into your dining room table. This comes in handy because during the day your items are tucked away neatly but come dinner time you have a nice dining room table.
3. Sensible seating.
Seating is extremely important when you are entertaining guests. Think about the layout of your space, it may be wise to get a small sofa and a fabric chair rather than two large sofas to take up space.
4. Fold them up.
Sellers know buyers have small spaces. This is the reason why foldable items are available today. Depending on your space’s size, you can invest in a fold-down bed, vanity or desk. These items create an efficient amount of space in rooms while being tucked away.
5. Pegboard Please.
Pegboards are not just for garages anymore. They can add a stylish storage function for homeowners. Clip on a mail bin or hang portraits from the pegboard. They offer endless possibilities and they are unique to each homeowner.
6. Deck it out.
Your small space does not have to be boring. Decorate the walls where there is extra space. Do not rely heavily on the areas provided by the floor, walls are your friends.
We hope that you can utilize these tips in any of your small spaces! Remember, they are not exclusive to small apartments!
