Make the Most of Your Space

March 3, 2023


Looking for ways to make more use of your space? Or, maybe things feel a bit too cluttered at home and you need new ways to help open the place up? Whatever it may be, here are a few simple tips to help you make the most of space at your home sweet home.

Invest in Storage

To declutter your everyday items, try installing hooks near your front door to hang coats and bags. You could also use a shoe rack to keep the front entrance nice and neat – everything has a place to go right when you walk in the door!

Next, consider adding shelves to place other items like books, candles or plants. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing to the rest of your home, you’ll free up some much needed table space.

Finally, brainstorm where other storage containers could discreetly go in your home – this way seasonal decorations or clothing don’t have to be taking up unnecessary space year-round.

Embrace Natural Lighting

Another great way to make your home feel larger is to utilize natural lighting. Adding in natural light instantly opens your space up and is guaranteed to make any room in your house feel more spacious.

Not sure where to start? Think more about windows, skylights, glass doors, mirrors or other reflective items. Allowing natural light to move throughout your home is a surefire way to free up your space and give it a more inviting feel. See for yourself!

Be Mindful of Your Design Scheme

When trying to give your home a more open and inviting atmosphere, be mindful of your color choices as well as the materials in your house. Clashing patterns and darker colors can make your home feel smaller and more cluttered.

Try using complementary materials such as metal panels and wood or, when in doubt, stick to one material. When choosing flooring, it’s also best to stick to one material (sometimes two!) to avoid creating too much conflict in your design.

Pick the Right Furniture

When it comes to freeing up space, furniture is a huge factor. Couches that are too big for your living room or a dining table that significantly reduces kitchen space not only compromises your space, but also hinders the overall look of your home. Be intentional when shopping for furniture and take into account the space you have to work with in your home.
