Maximising Space in a Small HouseLee Johnson
Houses can come in all shapes and sizes, and they each portray a different story. You can have a large house that has a lot of elegant history behind it, and you can have a small house that has even more history; that’s why homes are so special.
However, there are some homeowners that don’t utilise the space with their home effectively; there is always either some space that isn’t used whatsoever or too much stuff has been put into a small space, meaning that your house becomes cluttered and messy.
That’s why we are here to help; we know all about home interiors, which is why we have come up with the most effective ways in which you can maximise your space in a small house.
Create Discrete Zones
Having the ability to create discrete zones within your home means that you can organise your space effectively and efficiently. You can have designated areas for some of your items, such as an area for your kitchen utensils, food, and spices, or an area just for your everyday clothes; the possibilities are endless.
If you want to go down a more stylistic route, you could possibly divide your rooms based on their colour. For example, you could have one room that is styled completely with coloured, mosaic tiles, and then another could be painted with a different colour. However, it is all down to personal taste.
Install Patio Doors
If your property doesn’t have any patio doors, then now would be a great time to utilise them. If you have a patio door, you can manage your kitchen space more effectively if you were in the process of renovating it. For example, if you want to block the doorway, then you can have a patio door that links to the outside, which would provide you with more room.
You could also, if you were in a renovation phase, use the patio doors that you have implemented to extend your property, such as by installing a conservatory or an outdoor area, meaning that you will have more space than ever before!
Consider Changing Your Bathroom
If you have a bathroom that uses up a lot of space, whether that be because of the amount of utilities that you have within your bathroom, or due to the lack of space, there are somethings that you can do to fix this.
One thing would be if you had a bath, to remove it completely and replace it with a shower, as this would save a lot of space. However, if you are fixed on the idea of having a bath, you could incorporate your bath and shower together to save space. Or, to add a bit of style to your bathroom, you could turn it into a wet room. As such, you would need lots of bathroom tiles and an eye for detail.
Why Not Have an Open Staircase?
If you have a hallway that is dwarfed by your staircase, this can lead to a lack of space and, if you need to get something down the hallway to another room whilst holding lots of bags or moving large objects, it can be quite a difficult task.
However, if you knock down the wall that doesn’t have the staircase attached, you can have an open plan staircase, meaning that you have more manoeuvrability when placing large objects in your house. Because of the open plan nature, it will also give you the illusion of more space.
Mount TV on Your Wall
This may seem rather obvious, but it can save a lot of space in your living room. Television stands can be rather bulky; yes, they can store quite a lot of items, but they can be difficult to move around and they take up a lot of room.
A space-saving alternative would be to mount your television on the wall; this gives you a large area in front of the television that you can use to your heart’s content.
If you incorporate some of these into your home, you will start to reap the benefits very soon. Having more space in your home means that you can utilise it to the maximum potential, as well as be able to relax in a more comfortable, stress-free way.
