4 Ways to optimise space in your home

4 Ways to optimise space in your home

Space is a rare commodity in a modern home, but there’s no reason you can’t make the most of it with these expert tips.

Even the smallest homes can make more of the space that they have. By optimising furniture choices and implementing simple visual techniques, you can completely transform the look of your room: read on to find out more.

Build a unit under your stairs

The space that you have under the stairs obviously isn’t big enough to dedicate to a whole new room, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be clever with how you use it. Fitting storage units and shelving under your stairs can be a brilliant way to maximise the space that you have just going to waste.

Get fitted wardrobes

Wardrobes take up a lot of room in any bedroom. By opting for fitted wardrobes, you’re incorporating the storage space into the wall itself and making your room look bigger than it actually is. Bespoke built-in wardrobes will use every corner of your space wisely, rather than a big free standing one that takes up most of the room.

Embrace mirrors

One of the biggest tricks when it comes to creating the illusion of space, is to add a mirror or two. Mirrors will reflect the room back on itself to make it look bigger than it actually is: this is why a lot of restaurants and bars will have an entire wall covered in mirrors.

Mount the TV

If you have a TV on a stand or a table – or both – moving it onto the wall can free up all the space underneath. You could even look to have a custom unit built around the TV to house your DVDs and console games. This will make your living room look like it has a lot more space than it does, simply because you’ll be decluttering the floor by what is often the biggest wall.
