Top Tips For Creating More Space At Home

Top Tips For Creating More Space At Home

From cosy country cottages to large city pads, almost every home needs more storage!

So, to help you get the extra space you need without resorting to building extensions or moving, we’ve put together a few top tips for ways you can easily create that all important extra space in your home.  

Have a good old fashioned clear out 

Decluttering your home might be the most obvious way to create more space at home but it’s one of the most effective. Go through your drawers, cupboards and wardrobes and throw away, recycle or donate anything you haven't used for at least a year, is broken or you simply don’t love anymore. You may have to be a little bit ruthless in order to effect noticeable results but you’ll be amazed at how much extra room you can create just by getting rid of a few items.

Go open plan 

If your budget won’t stretch to a full extension, think about how you could reconfigure your existing space. Removing walls can transform once small rooms into a gorgeous large open space. For example, knocking down the wall between your kitchen and dining room will create a sought-after kitchen/diner that's sure to be the social hub of the house. Or, perhaps you’ve always dreamed of your own dressing room? Then why not knock a hole in the wall between your master and box room and create a walk in wardrobe - think of all the space you’ll save getting rid of large, free-standing cupboards.  

Get creative with your storage  

Oddly shaped window nooks, the area under the stairs and alcoves beside fireplaces are often places in the home that are neglected because they are an unusual space or not quite big enough for pieces of furniture. However, all you need is a little imagination and creativity and you can transform this otherwise wasted space into an abundance of handy storage solutions. For example, you can build a window seat with a hidden cupboard underneath, build shelving either side of a fireplace and even install a wine rack or office desk under the stairs!  

Upgrade to fitted furniture 

We’ve saved the best for last! We may be a little bias here, but upgrading your freestanding furniture for bespoke, made to measure furniture is perhaps the best, most effective way to seamlessly create more space in your home. From sliding door fitted wardrobes to bespoke kitchen cabinets to custom made home offices, each piece of furniture will be made to fit every inch, every nook and cranny of your home. As an added bonus, you also get complete control over its features and design.
