Three tips from the experts in design in the Sutherland Shire to help you make the most of small spaces within your home
Squeezing in as much usable space as possible makes rooms their most livable by helping a home function smoothly, keeping claustrophobic feelings (and clutter) at bay, and making a home feel more spacious.
Here are three tips from the experts in design in the Sutherland Shire, that might make your small space more enjoyable to live in.
1. Go vertical: Get creative when it comes to finding extra storage in your space. What about the area above your cabinets? Is there space above any doors for room for a shelf or two or three? Take a look in your closet. Is there wasted space above your clothes rack? There's just almost always some high spot you can take advantage of when you really take a look at your small space. You can even explore this idea with simple-to-install wall hooks.
2. Make room dividers functional storage solutions: Some small spaces like studios require a visual divider to make a space its most livable. Don't waste what could be a great opportunity to add more storage. Instead of just a thin divider, consider a bookshelf or other storage solution so you can make your divider help tame clutter as well as visually divide a space into usable areas. Some ideas to consider:
3. De-clutter: The most important thing to try to remember is the idea of learning to let go of your stuff. Instead of holding on to everything or even bringing stuff into the home, consider asking yourself every time your hands are on an object, "Do I really need this?" If you are really stuck, it’s worthwhile contacting a “De-cluttering” professional who will help you get on track”.
