Useful Ways To Maximize Small Spaces

Living in a small home doesn't mean that you can't enjoy plenty of space. In fact, there are some simple ways to maximise the space in your home to make it feel more open, airy, and relaxing.

Follow this guide to help you make the right interior choices and maximise your small spaces.

Bunk beds
If you have children or share a one-bedroom home with a child or friend, then you might want to consider installing bunk beds. They are a great way to maximize space while still giving everyone that lives there a place to sleep.

You can free up floor space and still ensure that everyone has their own personal space to rest and recharge.

Let more light in
The most effective way to make a space feel bigger is to add more light. Enhancing a space's natural lighting will guarantee to make the room feel bigger from sunrise to sunset.

This can be achieved by:
  • Taking down window coverings
  • Changing dark/bulky window coverings for minimal options
  • Opening window coverings as soon as you wake up
It will also help to make sure that you are Spring ready as your home should always let the most amount of light in, especially when the season changes and longer days hit us.

Add more mirrors
To further enhance the light and the spaciousness of your home, adding more mirrors is a useful tip. The more mirrors you have, the more light can bounce around and make your space look and feel much bigger than it is.

If you don't want to add too many mirrors to look at yourself, you could add mirrored decorative objects. These will also help to bounce the light around in the same way.

Use light colours on the floors, walls, and ceilings
When decorating your space, you will want to use the right colours as these will have a huge impact on the spaciousness of where you live. For instance, dark colors will make a space feel much smaller and closed in.

Therefore, you will want to use the opposite (light and neutral colours) to make the space feel as big as possible.

Lighter colors guarantee to maximise a small space as they bounce light around and simply make small things look bigger than they are.

Use floor-to-ceiling storage units
Every home will need storage space in order to organize clothes, food, and more. Therefore, it will benefit you if you use the right storage units for your goods.

If you have awkward spaces, such as corners or tall ceilings, then it can be useful to add a floor to ceiling storage units. This will mean that you can store more stuff and have as much space even if the cupboard is smaller in width. If you can utilize height then you can maximise floor space.

Speaking of storage units, one last tip is to use external storage if you have too much stuff. If there are some things that you want to keep but do not always use, then storing them elsewhere will maximise your everyday space.
