Getting More out of the Space in Your Home!

If we could, most of us would move to a bigger house. But, the price of property and the moving process means that for most families staying put is the only realistic option. Therefore, we need to make the best of the space that we already have. Fortunately, there are lots of ways to do exactly that.

Create a chill-out space in the corner of a room.

If you are struggling to find somewhere to chill out try setting up a comfy chair in the corner of a room. It is a good idea to light the area in some way, so you can read or do crafts. In most cases, a stick-up wall-light or floor lamp will be the right choice.
You can also put up a couple of prints like the ones you can order from firms like hellocanvas.co.uk. Doing this personalises your little 'cubby hole' so that it feels more like your own little space and looks nicer.

Make use of the space under your stairs.
Another approach is to use the cupboard under the stairs. You will be pleasantly surprised by how usable this space is. However, you need to make sure that this type of cupboard is well lit and that it is properly shelved out, so it does not get too untidy.
Potentially, the space under your stairs is a great place to set up a craft room or home office. If it is big enough you can set things up so you can step in and shut the door. But even if it is smaller, as you can see from this Pinterest board, you can still set the space up as an office. Some of the designs you will see there are stunning.

Use your shed.

If you have a shed, you can turn it into an office or another type of workspace. In fact, it is even possible to buy pre-fabricated garden offices. In some cases, you will not even need planning permission. 

Create more outdoor play space.

Plus, sheds can make really brilliant playrooms. You should always make your garden as child-friendly as possible. This will encourage your children to play outdoors more often.
Setting up a swing, a trampoline, a basketball hoop, swing ball or a football goal can all be done in under an hour and does not cost much. It is surprising how much your kids will play with these items.
Actually, making more of your garden space is a good thing in general. Having somewhere to eat and, maybe, cook outside can make it far easier for you to keep your home clean and tidy, during the warmer months.

A place for everything.

When space is short, having enough storage available is key. Stackable storage bins make sure that you use the entire cube, so a cupboard can store more.
Buying furniture with storage built-in is a great way of adding more storage to any home. Boarding out your loft and installing proper shelving in your garage are both good ways to significantly increase the amount of storage you have available.
