She Needed More Space In Her Home. The Way She Got It Is So Clever.
Adding space to any home can be a challenge, especially if you're the type to own a lot of items. The bedroom, living room, kitchen, bathroom — any room in a household can easily become cluttered. If you're not careful with the way you organize and store things away, you'll suddenly find yourself living in a smaller space than you remember.
Some people might find the challenge too hard if they have too many items. Don't give up! We've compiled a list of a few easy solutions to help add space to any home. With the help with a few of these tricks, you'll be on the way to a less cluttered atmosphere.
#1. Instead of tucking away or organizing things on a counter, install shelves and drawers under your cupboards to create a more organized kitchen.
#2. Instead of shoving all your belts into a drawer, create a belt rack out of your other hangers. Just install cup hooks into a wooden clamp hanger.
#3. Create your very own DIY storage bench. Not only will it provide you extra storage space, but it also adds extra seating to your home.
#4. If you have a really slim empty space like a space between a fridge and a wall, try adding a slide-out storage to it.
#5. Wherever there's a blank space in your home, there is an opportunity for open shelving! The more shelves, the more storage, the more space.
#6. If you have a nursery in your home, try installing a fold-down changing table so that when it's not in use, it's out of the way.
#7. If you have no problem with adding more mirrors to your home, try creating this hidden storage by carving a small space out of the wall and concealing it with a mirror afterwards. It'll hold the same function as a medicine cabinet.
#8. Add a platform to a room to technically create two spaces! For example, the platform in this photo serves as a home office within a garage.
#9. Use a pegboard closet wall to keep items off the floor, in sigh, and within reach!
#10. Install shelves into the back of your cupboards to create even more storage for all your spices and cooking ingredients.
#11. Add Lazy Susans to your pantry to add organization and extra storage. You can also add them to your fridge.
#12. If you want to create more space in your bedroom, instead of getting a standard night stand, try mounting a nightstand to the wall instead.
#13. Use a serving tray as a shelf divider inside your cupboard. This is especially useful for cupboards that tend to be taller.
#14. To prevent wasted space in a clothing closet, add chains to your hangers. You'll have more clothes hanging in one space, ultimately giving your closet more space.
#15. Replace the kick boards underneath your cabinets with drawers to get more storage in your home.
#16. Utilize the space behind doors by adding slim shelves to them. You're not using that space anyways, so might as well make use of it!
#17. Keep baskets above cabinets to store away items you don't use all the time. Use decorative baskets to maintain a nice look.
#18. Keep storage trays underneath your kitchen sink to give you space that's typically too far back.
#19. If you already have a bamboo steamer in your kitchen, use it as a storage bin for onions and garlic!
#20. Fill your drawers with drawer boxes to neatly organize everything that gets put in there, ultimately creating more space instead of just throwing all your items in there at once.
